Colorado: New Legislation to Repeal Arbitrary Magazine Ban Scheduled for Hearing

As previously reported, House Bill 1024, a bill which would have repealed the unnecessary restriction on the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold, was postponed indefinitely by the House Committee on State, Veterans and Military Affairs.  However, the Senate has also introduced a bill to repeal this arbitrary limit on firearm magazine capacities, Senate Bill 113.  SB 113 has been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee on Wednesday, March 23 at 1:30pm in room 356 of the Colorado State Capitol Building.  Please contact members of the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee and politely urge them to support SB 113!  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact the committee members! 

 

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.  SB 113 seeks to repeal this misguided restriction so that law-abiding Coloradans are not limited in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones.
