Colorado: Bill to Repeal Arbitrary Magazine Ban to Be Heard in Committee Next Week

Senate Bill 175, a bill that 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, has been scheduled for a hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday, March 9, at 1:30 P.M. in Room 271 of the Capitol.  It is critical that you attend this hearing and express your support for SB 175.

As previously reported, after the unfortunate and politically motivated dismissal of House Bill 1009 by anti-gun legislators in the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs last month, Senators Chris Holbert (R-30) and John Cooke (R-13) reintroduced the same bill in the Senate as SB 172.  However, this critical legislation needs your active support!

Please consider attending Monday’s hearing to provide testimony on behalf of this bill restoring your inherent right to self-defense.  If you cannot attend in person, please click here to provide remote testimony to the Committee, and use the contact information provided below to call and email members of the Committee and urge them to vote in support of SB 175.  Please forward this email to friends, family and fellow Second Amendment supporters in the Centennial State and encourage them to do the same.
