Last Friday, January 16, additional pro-gun legislation was introduced to protect Colorado business owners who respect your right to carry concealed.
House Bill 1127, introduced by state Representative Gordon Klingenshmitt (R-15), would grant immunity from civil liability to places of business which recognize your right to protection and self-defense by respecting your right to carry concealed on the property. This bill has been assigned to the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs but no hearing date has been set yet. Please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on this bill.
In addition, three bills which are vital to protecting your Second Amendment rights have been scheduled for their respective committee hearings in early February.
On Monday, February 2, the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs will hold a hearing at 1:30 P.M. in Room 271 to hear testimony on the following three pro-gun bills, all of which benefit law-abiding gun owners:
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 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 ineffective and rights-infringing private transfer background check law that passed during the 2013 legislative session.
Please call and email members of the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and urge them to support HB 1009, HB 1049 and HB 1050. These important pro-gun bills are critical to restoring your rights in the Centennial State!
