Tomorrow, April 27, the Senate Local Government & Housing Committee is scheduled to vote on HB23-1165, a bill that allows counties the authority to ban shooting on private property within their jurisdiction. Please contact the committee members immediately and ask them to vote NO on HB23-1165. Use the link below to take action and make your voice heard.
Banning shooting on private property does nothing to promote public safety. The only real effect of this bill will be to require citizens to pay to practice at a shooting range. This extreme gun control bill seeks to control what happens on your PRIVATE PROPERTY.
Under existing law, a board of county commissioners may designate unincorporated areas of a county where it is unlawful to discharge firearms, except the board may not prohibit the discharge of firearms in shooting galleries, on private property, or in residences under circumstances that do not endanger persons or property. HB23-1165 repeals the exception for private property and the minimum population density requirement.
Please forward this to your family and friends, and encourage them to contact their lawmakers to oppose HB23-1165. Thank you for your continued support of the Second Amendment.
