Colorado: Assault Weapons Ban Vote Happening This Week! Merchant Category Mandate Legislation Headed to the Governor

The Colorado General Assembly continues to throttle down on gun control. Today, House Majority Leader Monica Duran announced that HB24-1292, the so-called “assault weapons” ban, could be voted on as soon as this week after lying dormant for almost a month. Yesterday, SB24-066, mandating the use of firearm specific merchant category codes for payment processors, received final passage and is now headed to Governor Polis’ desk for his consideration.  On Thursday, anti-gun extremists will hold hearings on three different bills in two separate committees. It's critical that NRA members and Second Amendment supporters get involved today! Please use the three separate Take Action buttons below to contact legislators to oppose the "Assault Weapons" ban on the floor and the bills up in committee. Additionally, contact the Governor by calling his office (303) 866-2885 and urge him to veto SB24-066. 

Please use the button below to contact your state representative and urge them to OPPOSE the "Assault Weapons" Ban, HB24-1292!

Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee 1:30 pm

HB24-1174 increases the training requirements for concealed carry permit applicants and requires class instructors to be certified by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. This legislation is a solution in search of a problem, meant to harass gun owners and instructors by arbitrarily raising the qualification standards and likely the costs, despite not showing any existing deficiency in the current training standards.

HB24-1348 mandates that firearms stored in unattended vehicles must be kept in a locked hard-sided container that is kept out of view or within the locked trunk of the vehicle and creates civil penalties for infractions. 

Please use the button below to contact members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE HB24-1174 and HB24-1348!

 

House Education Committee 1:30 pm

HB24-1310 strips teachers and other school professionals of their ability to carry a concealed firearm on school grounds. Armed school personnel can act as first responders and robbing them of the ability to protect their students and coworkers only makes schools less safe. This bill also ends the very successful FASTER Colorado program, and bans carry on college campuses. This legislation fails to offer any solutions in the ongoing effort to secure our schools but removes safeguards and deterrents to those wishing to do harm.

Please use the button below to contact members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE HB24-1310!
