Colorado: House Judiciary Committee to Consider Two NRA-Backed Bills

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Committee hearings have been scheduled for two important NRA-backed bills that would positively affect law-abiding gun owners in the Centennial State: House Bill 1048 and House Bill 1064. Both bills will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee next Thursday, February 9, at 1:30 p.m. in Room 107 of the State Capitol.

HB 1048, introduced by state Representative Mark Waller (R-15), would eliminate the duplicative state-run Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) InstaCheck system for the purchase of firearms and solely utilize the existing National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). By removing the CBI InstaCheck, HB 1048 could possibly save the state of Colorado millions of dollars and repeal an unnecessary and duplicative state program.

Introduced by state Representative Amy Stephens (R-20), HB 1064 would protect your Second Amendment rights by prohibiting the state or any government agency, during a declared state of emergency, from prohibiting or restricting the otherwise lawful possession, use, carrying, transfer, transportation, storage, or display of a firearm or ammunition; seizing or confiscating a lawfully possessed firearm, or requiring registration of a firearm or ammunition for which registration is not otherwise required by law.

These critical bills need your support. Please call AND e-mail members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT HB 1048 and HB 1064. Contact information can be found below.
