Red Flag” Legislation Heads Back to the House for a Concurrence Vote

This past Wednesday, the Colorado Senate passed HB 1177 by an 18 to 17 vote. This legislation could infringe on an individual’s Second Amendment rights without due process. This “red flag” bill would authorize the seizure of an individual’s private property through an ex parte proceeding. A broad class of individuals could make unchallenged statements, before a judge, alleging that someone is a danger to themselves or others. This would be enough for law enforcement to enter that person’s home and confiscate their private property. HB 1177 will head back to the House for a concurrence vote. Go here to contact your state Representative and strongly urge them to oppose HB 1177:

Red Flag Bill Up for Second Reading and Amendment on Thursday, 03-21-2019 in Colorado State Senate

This comes from The Firearms Coalition of Colorado:

The Democrats slipped the Red Flag Bill (HB 19-1177) through the Senate Appropriations Committee this morning with less than 24-hours notice. The Bill is scheduled on the Floor of the Senate this Thursday. This is our last real chance to amend or kill this dangerous bill that turns due process on its head and threatens to subject honest citizens to dangerous confrontations with heavily armed SWAT teams. This bill can only be interpreted as an effort to divide citizens from law enforcement in Colorado.

On Peter Boyles’s AM710 radio show this morning at 8:15 am, Lesley Hollywood of Rally for Our Rights told Peter that the CO pro-2A Sanctuary County count, actual and now proposed on CO County Commissions’ agendas, is up to 34. There are 64 counties in total in our state. To kill the Red Flag bill (HB19-1177), also called the Extreme Risk Protection Order bill, she says to call:
A. Your own State Senator 303.866.2316 888.473.8136
B. Sen. Kerry Donovan, rural constituency 303.866.4871 970.279.1876
C. Sen. Leroy Garcia, President of the Senate 303.866.4878

How Long Does Ammunition Last?

From time to time, we get customers who bring in some pretty old ammunition–decades old. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Typically, if the ammunition shows no signs of rust, corrosion, physical damage to the case, bullet or primer, it has a pretty good chance of going BANG.

One of the most popular ammunition companies–Federal Ammunition–states: “Store reloading components and ammunition in a cool, dry place, protected from direct exposure to sunlight. If stored properly, loaded ammunition has a 10-year shelf life. “
