Colorado: Anti-Gun Measures Eligible for a Final Vote This Monday

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to vote NO on HB 1224, 1226, 1228 and 1229

Yesterday, four anti-gun measures passed their second reading in the Colorado House of Representatives and are now eligible for a final vote this Monday at 10:00 a.m.  Your firearms freedoms could be stolen away soon if you do not act now.

It is critical that your state Representative hears from you, before these votes on Monday, that you oppose the following anti-gun legislation:

House Bill 1224 – Bans magazines with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds.

House Bill 1226 – Repeals current law allowing individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus.

House Bill 1228 – Imposes a “gun tax” for a background check when purchasing a firearm.

House Bill 1229 – Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm.

Please call AND e-mail your state Representative and urge him or her to vote “NO” on these restrictive measures that will infringe on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms and your inherent right to self-defense.  Please click here to identify your state Representative and their contact information.
