Colorado Democrats reintroduce “red flag” gun bill at statehouse

Passing this along from Steve Schreiner, President of  Firearms Coalition of Colorado:
The “Red Flag” or ERPO (Emergency Response Protection Order) has finally been brought out in the Legislature. It is HB 19-1177 by multiple Democratic House (Garnett and Sullivan) and Senate (Court and Pettersen) sponsors.
It is even worse than last year’s bill, to be able to seize your guns without Due Process (your civil rights) by a considerable amount. Enough so, that House Minority Leader Neville says that recalls of individual legislators is most likely in order.
In order to thoroughly read and understand the bill, you must refer to laws or prior existing statutes already in the law, (C.R.S., or Colorado Revised Statutes) that are incorporated in to the bill.

Fear & Loading: Only 342 Guns “Certified” in Boulder

This an excerpt from American Rifleman magazine:
“Only 342 guns have been inspected and certified by the Boulder, Colo., Police Department, despite a new city ordinance that required residents to do so before Jan. 1 to retain legal possession of those that fall under the municipality’s definition of “assault weapon.” The seemingly low number for a city of more than 100,000 was confirmed this week, and authorities there volunteered the fact that the figure reflects firearms, rather than the number of owners who complied—many people brought in more than one.

The Boulder Police Department’s website explains guns that fall under the new law include any “Semi-automatic center fire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and that have any of the following characteristics: A pistol grip or thumbhole stock; A folding or telescopic stock; Any protruding grip or other device to allow the weapon to be stabilized with the non-trigger hand.”

The city council’s unanimous vote in May didn’t overlook pistols, either. Center-fire versions capable of magazine loads by any other method than through the grip or carrying an off-hand stabilizing device are also included. The law enforcement FAQ explains the certification requirement also applies to, “All semi-automatic shotguns that have any of the following characteristics: A pistol grip or thumbhole stock; Any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; A folding or telescopic stock; A fixed magazine capacity in excess of 5 rounds or the capacity to accept a detachable magazine.”

Colorado Dems kill House bill to allow teachers to carry guns

This message from Colorado Republicans: “Today, Colorado Democrats voted to leave our children defenseless on school grounds.House Minority Leader Patrick Neville introduced a bill to allow qualified teachers and staff to carry concealed handguns on school grounds, should they elect to do so. Democrats on the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee killed it on 6-3, party-line vote. By saying “no” to Neville’s House Bill 19-1049, Democrats today said “yes” to leaving our students and schools as soft targets. “

Colorado: House Committee to Consider Magazine Ban Repeal

On Thursday, January 24, the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee is scheduled to consider House Bill 1021. Please contact committee members and strongly urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 1021.

House Bill 1021, seeks to repeal the misguided 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold. By removing this restriction, law-abiding Coloradans are not limited in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Again, please contact members of the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee and strongly urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 1021.

Only Days Left For Boulder, CO Residents To Register Their Firearms

Think gun control can’t happen to you? Think again. It’s already happened in Boulder, Colorado.

Rally for our Rights has been at the forefront of Boulder, Colorado’s so-called “assault weapons” ban since it’s inception. We attended city council meetings and organized messaging campaigns encouraging residents to contact their local government officials. We organized a street demonstration on April 21st, 2018 in protest to the proposed ban – an event which was attended by hundreds in the heart of Colorado’s most progressive city – even in the rain/snow.  There were threats of lawsuits against Boulder, one of which came to fruition less than 24 hours after the ordinance passed, and another quickly followed.  Despite these efforts, the Boulder elites who make up the city council voted unanimously on May 15th, 2018 to ban the sale and possession of many semi-automatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns as well as bump stocks and magazines holding more than 10 rounds.  This unconstitutional move did nothing to address actual crime, but instead criminalized and demonized the law abiding.

As part of this ban, residents who owned any of the prohibited firearms prior to the day the ban went into law (June 15th, 2018) can participate in the city’s “This-Is-Not-A-Registry” program and grandfather their guns with a certification.  The last day to certify a firearm is supposed to be December 31st, 2018, but Boulder Police have stated that due to the holidays, the last day will actually be December 27th.  The complete ban will officially take effect on January 1, 2019, at which point possession of a banned weapon without a certificate will be punishable by 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine, and firearms will be confiscated and destroyed.

The certification process involves taking the firearm(s) being certified to the police department (unloaded and secured in vehicle) where they will be inspected.  You must have a valid photo ID and a new background check will be run. If the the background check comes back clear, two certificates per firearm will be issued. The cost is $20 for the first firearm and $5 for each additional firearm.”
