Colorado: Bill Repealing Restrictions on Rifle and Shotgun Purchases/Sales Signed into Law

Monday, May 5, 2014

Last Friday, May 2, Senate Bill 135 was signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper (D).  SB 135 enacts a long-overdue alignment of Colorado with forty-two other states that allow their residents to purchase rifles and shotguns in non-contiguous states, provided the purchase or transfer complies with state and federal law.  SB 135 takes effect on August 6, 2014.

SB 135, sponsored by state Senator Greg Brophy (R-1), repeals restrictions in state law relating to the purchase and sale of rifles and shotguns in non-contiguous states, and will permit the purchase and sale of firearms in states not bordering Colorado by both residents and non-residents.  SB 135 is an important pro-gun reform which repeals outdated restrictions, providing Colorado residents the freedom to purchase long guns in states beyond their immediate borders.

Your NRA thanks Senator Brophy for championing this bill, and countless NRA members across Colorado for their unwavering support and commitment to the Second Amendment.

While this legislation is a step in the right direction, critical reforms are still needed after last year’s egregious anti-gun laws were passed, making this election year one of the most important in years.  Know that your NRA-ILA is standing guard and will continue to update you as the legislative session progresses and as the 2014 election approaches.  Please stay tuned to your e-mail inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates.
