Colorado Expanding Laws That Will Negatively Affect Lawful Firearm Ownership in Colorado
Please show up in committee. Colorado needs you.

The State Assembly in Colorado is further expanding laws that will negatively affect lawful firearm ownership in Colorado.

HB 1230 is intended to stop all legal commerce in relation to Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs) in Colorado. The sponsors of the bill claim it is targeted to firearms used in mass shootings. It isn’t.

Most firearms involved in “mass shootings” are semiautomatic handguns - over 90 percent. As drafted, the bill does not include common handguns. It targets common semiautomatic long guns (MSRs) and large frame semiautomatic pistols commonly built on rifle length actions.

Of special concern to all current owners, you may not sell or transfer a firearm in possession, and a one-word amendment in committee will prohibit existing ownership.

While we believe this bill is clearly unconstitutional based on the recent Bruen decision from the Supreme Court, the legislature appears poised to pass such legislation regardless of the unconstitutionality.

Please show up in committee. Colorado needs you.

Sign up and show up Wednesday, March 29 at 1 p.m. in the Old State Library. 

If you cannot attend in person, please call members of the Colorado House Judiciary Committee and ask them to stop this bill. If they don’t hear from you, they won’t.
