Thanks to the strong response of NRA members and Second Amendment supporters, HB23-1165, the bill giving counties the power to ban shooting on private property in their jurisdiction, was defeated. NRA also thanks all lawmakers who defended the Second Amendment for law-abiding citizens in Colorado.
This extreme bill sought to control your PRIVATE PROPERTY, and would have made it necessary for law-abiding citizens to pay to attend a shooting range. Under existing law, a board of county commissioners may designate unincorporated areas of a county where it is unlawful to discharge firearms, but 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.
Again, thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their lawmakers in strong opposition to this anti-gun bill.
