Colorado: Extreme Gun Free Zone Measure Referred to Senate Committee

Colorado: Extreme Gun Free Zone Measure Referred to Senate Committee

Yesterday, extreme anti-gun legislation, “The Vote Without Fear Act” House Bill 22-1086, was referred to the Senate Committee on State, Veterans, & Military Affairs for consideration.  Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE House Bill 22-1086.


House Bill 22-1086 “The Vote Without Fear Act” - The title itself is enough to know that sponsors and supporters of this measure hate your Second Amendment rights.  HB 1086 looks to ban the open carry of a firearm at voting locations in the Centennial state.  It is the intention of this measure to prohibit you from exercising one of your constitutional rights while engaging in another.  The irony would be funny if it wasn’t a serious and deeply-held belief by anti-gun legislators that the Second Amendment is a lesser right.

Law-abiding gun owners have the right to self-defense and are provided with options that fit their needs.  Those who choose to open carry should not be prevented from casting a vote.

Again, please contact members of the Senate Committee on State, Veterans, & Military Affairs and ask them to OPPOSE House Bill 22-1086.

Also yesterday, the Colorado House passed important firearm safety education legislation, House Bill 22-1168.  Having passed out of the House, the measure now heads to the Senate. 

House Bill 22-1168 allows local education providers, upon entering into an agreement with an individual or entity that offers hunter education courses certified by the division of parks and wildlife (division), to provide a hunter education course (course) to all seventh graders.  As amended, the measure does not prevent this hunter education course from being taught at any grade level as an elective. The course must satisfy the requirements of a hunter education course certified by the division; except that hands-on activities are not required. The course must be taught by a division-certified instructor. A parent or legal guardian must provide permission for a student to participate in any hands-on activities that are offered as part of the course.

Special thanks to Rep. Hugh McKean for championing this important pro-safety legislation. Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you informed as this measure progresses and is scheduled for a hearing.
