My name is Lily Tang Williams from Douglas County. I am here to represent Our America Initiative, a non-profit grassroots organization, Libertarian Party of Colorado and myself to strongly support SB15-175 Repeal Magazine Ban. I was born and grew up in People’s Republic of China, where the Communist Party rules everything. Chinese citizens are not allowed to have any guns ever since the Communist party took over in 1949. So, Chinese people are left helpless when they need to defend themselves. I grew up with fear like millions of other children. Fear police will pound our doors at night for no good reason (search warrant is not necessary for them to do that), fear bad guys will come to rob us (there were crimes in our poor neighborhood), fear my parents and brothers would get hurt and taken away. I have seen local people who defend themselves with kitchen knives, rocks, glass bottles and sticks against criminals. But when it comes to dealing with the Chinese government and police brutality, there is nothing we could do. Remember June 4th Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989? Our own soldiers, ordered by the top leaders in Beijing, killed thousands of students. Even though the local residents were supporting students, but they had no ways to help them. Some Beijing residents begged for the tanks to stop but they did not. What if the residents and students had guns? What if there was militia in China that time? What if the citizens had unlimited magazines? The history might have been different. I came to the U.S. for freedom, including the freedom granted by the 2nd amendment: the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. When I held my own gun and fire the first shot for the first time in my life, I felt empowered and I felt free. Guns do not kill people, tyranny kills millions and millions of people. I lived under tyranny for 24 years, I do not want to ever live under it again.
