Here’s some important information for Colorado gunowners from our friends at Firearms Coalition of Colorado:
Please contact your US Senators to support HR 1181, the Veterans’ Second Amendment Protection Act. This bill ends discrimination with regard to gun ownership for veterans with disabilities who have fiduciaries (individuals designated to manage the veterans’ monetary affairs). The bill has passed the US House and is pending in the Senate.
Support HR 38 and S 446, which are the national concealed carry reciprocity bills. HR 38 has been introduced in the US House. S 446 has been introduced in the US Senate and referred to the Judiciary Committee.
SB 17-116, Concerning Allowing a Law-abiding Person to Carry a Concealed Handgun Without a Permit, and, in Connection Therewith, Preserving Current Laws Restricting the Carrying of Concealed Handguns on Certain Property, Including Public Schools, Sen. T. Neville (R-SD 16) and 15 other Senators, and Rep. Van Winkle (R-HD 43) and 13 other House Members, is scheduled for hearing in the CO House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 26th in Room LSB A in the Legislative Services Building south of the Capitol. Please contact your State Representative in support of this bill.
If you come down to testify, expect a long process. Representative Salazar’s bill to eliminate Columbus Day as a state holiday is up as the first bill of the afternoon. Double check date, time, and location, before you come down. Schedules may be changed.
Stay alert. We are anticipating at least two anti-Second Amendment bills from the Democrat-controlled State House of Representatives this year, including one bill related to confiscation of firearms from persons with possible mental health issues, and one bill concerning confiscation of firearms possessed by persons accused of domestic violence. There may be additional unfriendly bills near the end of the session.
And finally, If you are an NRA Voting Member and voted in this year’s election, thank you very much for re-electing Steve Schreiner to the Board of Directors.
