Colorado Legislature Moving Firearm Bills!

Friday, February 9, 2007

 

Last week House Bill HB 1011, sponsored by State Representative Cory Gardner (R-63), passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 6-5.  The bill now heads to the State House floor for a vote.  HB1011, 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 HB1011. 

House Bill 1278 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.  This legislation sponsored by State Representative Joel Judd (D-5), will allow municipalities to prohibit the carrying of a loaded handgun in a vehicle without a valid concealed carry permit.  Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully ask them to vote against House Bill 1278.  Members of the committee are: Chairman Terrance Carroll; Representative Morgan Carroll; Representative Mike Cerbo; Representative Bob Gardner; Representative Andrew Kerr; Representative Steve King; Representative Claire Levy; Representative Rosemary Marshall; Representative Ellen Roberts; Representative Debbie Stafford; Representative Amy Stephens

Currently in the Senate there are two anti-gun bills: 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.  This legislation has already passed the House of Representatives and is in danger of passing the Senate.  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.  For example, a Florida permit issued to a non-resident will not be recognized in Colorado.  No demonstrated need has been presented to justify Senate Bill 34, 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 him or her to OPPOSE House Bill 1174 and Senate Bill 34. 

Senate Bill 109 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.  This legislation sponsored by State Senator Ron Tupa (D-18), authorizes the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to impose a $15 fee for performing an instant background check prior to purchase of a firearm.  Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to vote against Senate Bill 109.  Members of the committee are: Chairman Brandon Shaffer; Senator John Morse; Senator Bob Bacon; Senator Betty Boyd; Senator Shawn Mitchell; Senator Scott Renfroe, Senator Steve Ward.  Please keep checking your email and www.nraila.org for future updates on this threat to the Second Amendment in Colorado!
