Senate Bill 34, sponsored by State Senator John Morse (D-11), passed the House and is on its way to the desk of Governor Bill Ritter (D).
If enacted, non-resident carry permits will no longer be honored if the permit holder is not a resident of the state that issued the permit. For example, a Florida permit issued to a non-resident will not be recognized in Colorado. No demonstrated need has been presented to justify 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 Governor Ritter TODAY at (303) 866-2471 or email Governor.firstname.lastname@example.org and respectfully urge him to veto SB34.
