    By the demographics of the Mountain West and other areas that didn't encounter large migrations in the 20th century from the East, I think that number is grossly exaggerated.

    We should be seeing the grandchildren of black cowboys all over Colorado, and they simply aren't there.

      Cowboys were transient. You couldn't find many grandchildren of white cowboys either, at least not as a statistically significant portion of the modern population of the west.

        Where is the large black population in the West outside popular 20th century destinations of eastern migration?

        We have plenty of whites here but not blacks. So where are they if that many were here?

          I see your point but these could have been former Buffalo Soldiers that stayed in the West. I have heard 25% but never bothered to look up a stat. You would have thought that those former slaves in Texas sure knew how to handle a horse and once freed, stayed in Texas or the West and did what came natural to them.

              That poor gun is just misunderstood, and was probably being abused anyway.
              Just the sort of straw man argument we've come to expect from Rush's Kids.

              If you favor any sort of regulation of firearms, then you must be "anti-gun."

              Yawn.

                The reviews at Amazon are comedy gold.

                  We already have laws in place for regulation, all except registering 'most' firearms.

                  And lol @ Rush's Kids. If you don't favor more regulation of firearms, then you must be, "Rush's Kids."


                  You make this too easy.

                      Are you calling for the same laws on booze you want for guns or are you joining the 99.999999% of gun control fanatics who recoil in horror when you suggest their access to boozy woozy should be curtailed?
                      There are already laws against drinking and driving genius.

                        I actually dont. That is asking for trouble. I do think security guards at bars should be able to do so. I also think no need at sporting events too which includes high school games.

                          Not enough laws in place, and the few that weren't completely gutted on Smirk & Dick's watch are clearly not working.

                          And it's not just your takes on gun control that distinguish you as one of Rush's Kids.

                            I agree places like bars it's pretty silly to let citizens carry. But in our cars we should always be able to and in CA you can't.

                              The common retort for people in fear of having their access to booze restricted. We already have laws on guns and against murder, and your booze loving non sequitur response is a pretend argument as if we don't have laws on guns.

                              Care to have another hack at it or just bow out?
