Colorado: Bill to Repeal Private Transfer Background Checks is Scheduled to be Heard in Senate Committee

Thursday, January 23, 2014

On Monday, February 3, the state Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee will hear an important pro-gun bill which seeks to restore some of the rights that were stolen from you last year.  Senate Bill 94, introduced by state Senator George Rivera (R-3), would repeal the misguided legislation passed last session by anti-gun legislators in Denver that criminalizes the private sale or transfer of a firearm between friends, family members and law-abiding citizens.

SB 94 was assigned to the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, which has shown hostility towards your gun rights in the past.  It is critical that your voice is heard this year and not ignored.  As gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment, we need you to show up in Denver on Monday, February 3, to support and speak in favor of SB 94.  Without your active support, anti-gun state legislators will continue to trample on your Second Amendment rights like they did last session!  For more information about testifying at the state Capitol, please click here.  Hearing details are provided below:

Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee Hearing

When: 1:30 p.m. on Monday, February 3
