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. “

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.”

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.

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.
