Next Monday, February 2, is set to be a busy day in Denver with multiple pro-gun bills being heard in both state Senate and House committees.
The following bills are scheduled to be heard in the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee at 1:30 P.M. in Room 271 in the State Capitol Building:
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.
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 onerous private transfer background check law that passed during the 2013 legislative session.
House Bill 1086, introduced by state Representative Patrick Neville (R-45), would mandate the timely transfers of certain lawful firearms by chief law enforcement officers to individuals once they have passed a background check.
House Bill 1127, introduced by state Representative Gordon Klingenschmitt (R-15), would admonish business owners who permit lawful concealed carry on their premise from any civil liability if an action were to take place.
The following bills are scheduled to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee at 1:30 P.M in Senate Committee Room 356:
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 would still enjoy reciprocity in states around the country when legally carrying concealed.
Senate Bill 86, introduced by state Senator Kent Lambert (R-9), would repeal the egregious legislation passed in 2013 that requires a background check for the private transfer of a firearm between law-abiding citizens.
