The Criminal Record Behind the Colorado Mag Ban

The Democrat State Representative behind the ridiculous gun control bill that would limit magazine capacity and force Magpul to leave the state, just so happens to have a criminal record.

Colorado Media Trackers reported last week that State Representative Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora) was arrested in 1976 on a charge of larceny and again in 1991 on a charge of shoplifting.

Rep. Fields has sponsored multiple gun control bills currently under debate in the Colorado Legislature, including legislation to ban on magazines with the capacity to hold more that 15 rounds, criminalize the private sale or transfer of a firearm without a background check, ban on concealed carry permits on the college campuses, and increase background check fees.

You can read the rest here. The Democrats of Colorado must be so proud. One has to wonder when Rep. Fields will sponsor a bill prohibiting criminals from proposing Unconstitutional gun control legislation.

Update: Apparently Rep. Fields’ rap sheet is much longer than first reported.

    Got to wonder how many times she didn’t get caught!

      Does it matter? She’s clearly proven she has no integrity and, I personally, question her judgement and rationality.

      She’s not fit to be making, proposing or enforcing ANY laws.

    My understanding of the law regarding shoplifting is that the shoplifter must exit the premises with good not paid for. For that particular crime, an arrest is proof enough of guilt for me. As for the rest, I’d like to see details on the larceny charge, but her record does seem to indicate a certain disregard for laws that make her life less convenient.

    Better yet, why is this person allowed to hold public office??

    A criminal and a Traitor

    Here’s a break down on Fields “poor” judgments that she was convicted of:

    11/29/1989 – Driving without Insurance – Careless Driving charge was dismissed
    07/19/1989 – Writing of bad checks – Guilty

    The traffic ones, 3 of them, just prove that she likes to drive fast- 15 to 19 MPH over the limit, (poor judgment), and not keep her car in proper repair – Bad headlight.

    She’s just an old bat. that needs someone to drive her around, and make sure she pays her bills – My 98 year old Grandma doesn’t need this type of babysitting.

    A shoplifter only has to pass the last point of pay with constant dispossession or concealed. Not necessarily leave the premises since the premises can also mean the parking lot.

    I find her record of anti-firearms tendencies to be disturbing, but I find the Larceny charge suspicious. 1976 is the year she received her Masters in Psychology Counseling/Guidance at the University of Northern Colorado. Who has time to commit larceny while writing a Masters thesis? I cannot find a conviction record for either charge. To refer to someone as a criminal without a conviction is something the Left would normally do.

      I’m no lawyer, but my understanding is that pleading guilty is a conviction. At any rate, I think her inability to uphold her oath to defend the Constitution means that she is unfit for public office.

      She pled guilty to writing bad checks. Add in everything else she’s been accused of, and you have someone who isn’t fit to propose legislation, particularly Unconstitutional legislation.

      She’s a criminal in every sense of the word.

    The reason you need a 30 rd mag and an AR is because she and her hood is coming to the country after you family… What a scumbag
