Colorado: Bill to Repeal Arbitrary Magazine Ban Expected to Pass in State Senate this Week

Colorado: Bill to Repeal Arbitrary Magazine Ban Expected to Pass in State Senate this Week

Today, Senate Bill 175, the bill to repeal the arbitrary limitation on the number of rounds of ammunition in magazines, passed its second reading in the state Senate.  SB 175 is expected to be up for final passage on the Senate floor sometime later this week.  Please contact your state Senator today and urge them to SUPPORT 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 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.

When 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.  Please also begin contacting your state Representative in support of SB 175.

Representative Joseph Salazar (D-31)
