Bill to Limit Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s Hours Scheduled for Hearing!

Friday, February 1, 2008

House Bill 1190, introduced by State Representative James Kerr (R-28), would eliminate the requirement that the Colorado Bureau of Investigation remain open for business for at least 12 hours on Sundays in order to process requests for instant criminal background checks.  If passed, HB 1190 will negatively impact firearm dealers and gun-shows by exacerbating wait times for purchasing a firearm, especially since most firearm purchases occur on weekends.

HB 1190 is scheduled for a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, February 12.  Please contact the members of the committee and respectfully urge them to oppose HB 1190.
