Senate Bill 175, the repeal of the arbitrary limitation on the number of rounds of ammunition in firearm magazines, which passed during the 2013 session, passed favorably out of the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this week. This bipartisan bill is a common sense measure that looks to repeal an unenforceable law that even Governor John Hickenlooper (D) called a “worthless statute” last June.
Unfortunately, Governor Hickenlooper is continuing to stand shoulder to shoulder with anti-gun extremist, Michael Bloomberg, by walking back yet another statement of his when it comes to your Second Amendment rights.
Just yesterday, the Governor all but said he would veto any magazine limit repeal legislation if it were to make it to his desk. Regardless of continued support for its repeal by both law enforcement and citizens from across the state, your Governor continues to take his marching orders from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other anti-gun activists when it comes to your gun rights and inherent right to self-defense.
