Colorado: Gun Control Legislation Dies in Senate Committee

Yesterday, the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee voted down House Bill 1436 by a 3 to 2 party-line vote.  HB 1436 was the "red flag" bill and would allow family, roommates or household members, and law enforcement to have an individual’s guns taken away without a hearing and little to no due process.  The bill allows the confiscation of firearms through ex parte hearings where a person isn't given notice and a hearing. 

Thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who continually contacted their lawmakers in opposition to this anti-gun measure.  Special thanks to those legislators who continued to support your Right to Keep and Bear arms by voting “no” on House Bill 1436.
