HB 1174, legislation sponsored by State Representative Al White (R-57), passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 7-4 on Wednesday. The bill would repeal the sunset review of the law enforcement database of carry permit holders.
Also, HB 1011, championed by State Representative Cory Gardner (R-63), will be heard next Wednesday, January 31, in the House Judiciary Committee. HB1011, the "Castle Doctrine" self-defense bill, simply states that if a criminal breaks into your home, your occupied vehicle, or your place of business, the victim does not have a “duty to retreat.” The bill also provides protection from criminal prosecution and civil litigation for those who defend themselves from criminal attack.
Please contact your State Representatives at (303) 866-2904, or if outside of Denver, at (800) 811-7647, and urge them to oppose HB 1174 and to support HB 1011.
