Colorado: Pro-Gun Bills Defeated by House Committee

Unfortunately, yesterday evening, the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs voted down Senate Bill 86 by a 4-7 vote and Senate Bill 175 by a 5-6 vote.  SB 86, introduced by state Senator Kent Lambert (R-9), would have repealed the egregious legislation passed in 2013 that requires a background check for the private transfer of a firearm between law-abiding citizens.  SB 175, introduced by state Senators Chris Holbert (R-30) and John Cooke (R-13), would have repealed another anti-gun piece of legislation passed into law during the 2013 legislative session that arbitrarily limits the number of rounds of ammunition you can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.  However, the House, still controlled by some of the same misguided legislators who stripped away your rights in 2013, continues to burden Coloradans by upholding cumbersome mandates and restrictions on the lawful purchase and possession of firearms and ammunition.

As previously reported, SB 86 passed the Colorado Senate by an 18-17 vote.  “Universal” background checks do nothing to reduce violent crime and only burden law-abiding gun owners.  

SB 175 was introduced after the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs’ politically motivated dismissal of House Bill 1009 and passed in the Colorado Senate by a 21-13 vote.  The arbitrary ban on magazines holding more than 15 rounds of ammunition is an attack on a law-abiding citizen’s fundamental right to self-defense by inhibiting their ability to protect themselves and their family members.

Thank you to all our members who contacted legislators on behalf of this bill and for your continued support throughout the 2015 legislative session.  Please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on gun-related bills as they progress through the Colorado General Assembly.
