NRA Mobilizes Colorado Members & Supporters To Repeal Magazine Ban

Thursday, March 31, 2016


Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) is mobilizing its members and supporters in Colorado to repeal the arbitrary ban on large capacity magazines.

Earlier this week, the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee passed Senate Bill 113 by a 3-2 vote.  Senate Bill 113 now heads to the Senate floor for consideration by the full Senate. 

“We are urging our members and supporters in Colorado to contact their state senators and respectfully urge them to support Senate Bill 113,” said Catherine Mortensen, NRA Spokesperson. “The current arbitrary ban on large capacity magazines has done nothing to make the people of Colorado any safer. It is part of the failed Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda pushed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.”

The NRA-ILA is directing members in an email alert to this website to contact their state senator to support Senate Bill 113: https://act.nraila.org/takeaction.aspx?AlertID=125

“The NRA would like to thank the bill sponsor, Senator Vicki Marble (R-23), as well as Senators Owen Hill (R-10), Jerry Sonnenberg (R-1), and Ray Scott (R-7) for their support of Senate Bill 113 in committee,” concluded Mortensen.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
