After hours-long debate last night, the Colorado House passed mandatory storage legislation, House Bill 1106, on Second Reading. This measure places undue burden on law-abiding gun owners, while touting “crime prevention.” Littleton, CO recently passed a similar storage ordinance for gun dealers, mandating certain storage procedures and devices that have created huge financial restrictions for business owners. Further, the financial and physical requirements for abiding by this ordinance are nearly impossible to comply with.
House Bill 1106 applies similar mandatory storage requirements statewide for law-abiding gun owners and third reading could occur at any time. Please contact your State Representative and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1106.
House Bill 1106 imposes government-mandated standards for storing firearms, rendering a person’s firearm useless when needed for self-defense. This should be a matter of personal responsibility, as everyone’s situation is different.
Again, please contact your State Representative and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1106.
Later today, the Colorado Senate will consider anti-gun Senate Bill 78, a measure that does nothing to prevent crime and instead targets law-abiding gun owners, possibly already suffering from the acts of criminals. Please contact your State Senator and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 78.
Senate Bill 78 victimizes gun owners who suffer loss or theft of their property with a fine if they don’t report a lost or stolen firearm within five days of discovering them missing.
Again, please contact your State Senator and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 78.
