Colorado: Bill to Repeal Arbitrary Magazine Ban Passes Out of Committee and Heads to Senate Floor

Yesterday, the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee passed Senate Bill 175, a bill to repeal the arbitrary magazine ban, by a 3 to 2 vote.  SB 175 now goes to the Senate floor where it will be considered for passage by the full Senate.  Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT SB 175.

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 175.  This bill would repeal the radical anti-gun 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.

Unfortunately, if SB 175 passes through the state Senate, this legislation will most likely once again be referred to the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs.  Your help is needed to convince members of the Committee to reconsider their stance on your constitutional rights.  The Vice-Chairman of the Committee, Representative Joseph Salazar (D-31), needs to hear from you.  Urge him to change his vote and to SUPPORT SB 175.  Tell him to repeal the ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition, so that you are not limited when it comes to protecting yourself and your family.
