APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Critical Firearm Legislation Currently in Colorado State Legislature!

Friday, February 2, 2007

 

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

Three pieces of vitally important Second Amendment legislation are currently in the Colorado State Legislature. 

Currently in the Senate,
House Bill 1174, legislation sponsored by State Representative Al White (R-57), would repeal the sunset review of the law enforcement database of carry permit holders.

Senate Bill 34, sponsored by State Senator John Morse (D-11), will be heading to the Senate floor soon.  If enacted, concealed carry permits will no longer be honored if the address on the holder’s identification is different than the state where the permit was issued.  No demonstrated need has been presented to necessitate SB34, legislation that will potentially threaten reciprocity agreements.  This bill will invalidate non-resident permit holders as well as create second-class citizens out of Colorado residents.

Please contact your State Senator today at (303) 866-2316 and respectfully urge them to oppose HB1174 and SB34.

 State Senator Jim Isgar (D-6) could be the deciding vote on SB34.  Please contact him via phone at (303) 866-4884, or email isgarsenate@frontier.net and respectfully urge him to vote “NO” on SB34.

HB1011 sponsored by State Representative Cory Gardner (R-63) is now heading to the State House floor for a vote.  The “Castle Doctrine” self-defense bill, simply states that if a criminal breaks into your home or your place of business, you do not have a “duty to retreat.” The bill also provides protection from criminal prosecution for those who defend themselves from criminal attack.

Please contact your State Representative today at (303) 866-2904, or if outside of Denver, at (800) 811-7647 and respectfully urge them to support and HB1011.


Please keep checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for future updates on these important pieces of legislation in Colorado!
