Colorado: Repeal of Arbitrary Magazine Ban Defeated in Committee

In 2013, the Colorado Legislature restricted the ability of law-abiding gun owners to protect themselves by limiting the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold.  This arbitrary limit does nothing more than hinder the lawful right to self-defense of Coloradans because criminals do not follow the law.

Earlier this session, House Bill 1024 was introduced by state Representatives Lori Saine (R-63) and Vicki Marble (R-23) to repeal this unnecessary restriction.  Unfortunately, on Monday, March 7, the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs heard House Bill 1024 and voted to indefinitely postpone the bill, essentially killing HB 1024 for this legislative session.  The bill was voted against by Representative Mike Foote (D-12), Susan Lontine (D-1), Dianne Primavera (D-33), Su Ryden (D-36), and Max Tyler (D-23).

The NRA would like to thank Representatives Stephen Humphrey (R-48), Timothy Leonard (R-25), Patrick Neville (R-45), and Cole Wist (R-37) for supporting HB 1024.  Special thanks to Representatives Lori Saine (R-63) and Vicki Marble (R-23) for sponsoring this necessary piece of pro-gun legislation.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to work hard to repeal this damaging law as well as keep you updated on other legislative issues as the 2016 Colorado Legislative Session continues.
