Colorado: First Day of the 2015 Session Sees Strong Pro-Gun Activity

Yesterday, the 2015 legislative session kicked off and brought a solid list of pro-gun legislation to benefit law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen across the state.

House Bill 1009, introduced by state Representative Steve Humphrey (R-48), would repeal the rights-infringing legislation passed into law during the 2013 legislative session that arbitrarily limits the number of rounds of ammunition you can use to protect yourself and your family to 15 rounds.

House Bill 1049, introduced by state Representative Justin Everett (R-22), would extend the protection and right to self-defense you currently have in your home to your place of business.

House Bill 1050, introduced by state Representative Janik Joshi (R-16), would repeal the onerous and ineffective private transfer background check law that passed during the 2013 legislative session.

Senate Bill 32, introduced by state Senator Vicki Marble (R-23), would allow all law-abiding Colorado residents to legally carry concealed without having to possess a concealed carry permit.  This bill would also keep in place the current permitting system so that people who obtain a permit will still enjoy reciprocity in states around the country when legally carrying concealed.

The bills listed above have already received committee assignments, but no hearing dates have been scheduled.  Please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on these bills and others as the 2015 legislative session progresses.
