As anti-gun Colorado lawmakers continue to try to make their state the “California East,” gun owners find themselves facing a number of restrictive proposals that would severely infringe upon their right to keep and bear arms.

 

One of the most dangerous proposals is an ban on so-called “assault weapons” that would take in a very high percentage of semi-automatic firearms, both long guns and handguns.

 

House Bill 24-1292 bans the manufacture, import, purchase, sale, offering for sale or transfer of ownership of so-called “assault weapons.” The measure’s overly broad definition bans not only AR-15-style rifles, but also countless other rifles, pistols and shotguns that Coloradans use for hunting, target shooting and self-defense.

 

Unfortunately for Colorado’s lawful gun owners, after a marathon session with many pro- and anti-gun citizens speaking, the measure recently cleared its first hurdle, with the Colorado House Judiciary Committee on March 19 approving the measure on a party-line 7-3 vote.

 

Another measure, SB 24-131, expands the so-called “sensitive places” where firearms cannot be carried to include polling places, public parks, community centers, churches, college campuses and more. The measure is being considered today by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

 

As NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action explained in an Action Alert: “Nothing in the bill requires these “sensitive places” to have any measures to protect citizens and prevent armed criminals from ignoring this arbitrary boundary and entering. Ninety-four percent of mass shootings occur in these gun-free zones; signage is not enough to stop criminals.

 

While these two bills are particularly high profile, a number of other anti-gun measures are also under consideration this legislative session in Colorado. HB 24-1348 recently passed out of the House Judiciary Committee and will likely be up for consideration on the House floor soon. That measure mandates how firearms must be stored in unattended vehicles.

 

Additionally, HB 24-1270 would dictate that gun owners purchase a liability insurance policy to purchase and carry a firearm in the state, HB 24-1353 would create a state permitting system for federally regulated firearms license holders, and HB 24-1310 would teachers and other school professionals of their ability to carry a concealed firearm on school grounds to protect students.

      • Good. We need to know the mindset of these mentally ill people, and what to look for so we can prevent this kind of thing from happening again.

      • This is a battle against Gun Control which without any question or doubt is an agenda Rooted in Racism and Genocide. To win the battle the aforementioned Truth About Gun Control must become common knowledge. To change the public view of Gun Control from something perceived as Good to the evil it is one must expose Gun Control’s historical roots. Unfortunately for far too many on this forum and elsewhere holding on to bigotry means more to them than The Second Amendment. To have both their bigotry and the Second Amendment bigots sit back and place their bets on the courts giving the 2A an edge which even if victorious leaves Gun Control standing and able to fight again as seen in Colorado, etc.

        Evidence of love for bigotry are in the replies I have received over the years. Some are from outright bigots and some think they can ooze bigotry in bits and pieces without being noticed…noticed by who bigots preceive as a dumb girl who should be doing their laundry, etc. Bottom line…Defining Gun Control for what is a guaranteed Gun Control History illiterate public requires being in total opposition to bigotry. After all Gun Control is bigotry. Bigotry is Gun Control.

        • I don’t even think you could do laundry without crying about racism.

          If being a bigot means not being able to stand idiots like you, I wear the label proudly.

    • Once again Dims ruin everything. I have a friend who grew up in Colorado. Real cowboy country where at least guy’s walked around with a gat(& low crime). Dims blame the innocent. Time for a national divorce🙄

      • The Dims are believers in the perpetrator is the true victim of an unjust society and the victim of the crime must have provoked the perpetrator. Usually by “flaunting their wealth and privilege”.

  1. 1 bring in a bunch of illegals
    2 have am obama judge rule they can carry guns legally
    3 make it illegal for the citizenry to carry guns
    the smartest people in the room
    all see where this is headed
    and are preparing accordingly

    • Yes, it is interesting that a judge believes illegals should have guns. But no guns allowed for citizens.

  2. Thank you for voting for leg@l butt sex and drugs. Thank you for voting for this open h0 m0 sexu@l c0 mmunist /f@scist leadership.

    I’m actually happy it happened. Now at least the entire country can see what happens. When you put these kinds of people into office.

    This was all predicted in a book I believe called, “When the Wicked Take Over a City.”

    It’s about the great city of San Francisco. Which is not so great any more.

    • Non-sequitur.

      This isn’t the result of voting to leave people alone. This is the result weak people voting to have the government “protect” them from themselves. Gun prohibition is built on the same faulty logic as drug prohibition.

      The answer is less government. Not more.

  3. The infringement of one right has repercussions for them all.
    Ahhh, hah, Mandatory Gunm Insurance, well well well , it worked huh Law Shield.
    Lest not forget Wayne has left the building and now all of a sudden the NRA/ILA is fighting all these gunm infringements that are popping up everywhere.
    Coincidence?
    Behind closed doors deals are made, negotiating rights away, one hand rubs the other. When it comes to money trust no one.

  4. to anonymous

    The c0mmunist/f@scist hom0sexu@l @theist agenda, has been “free” condoms for everyone. And “free” needle exchanges, “free” abortions.

    And much much more “free stuff” from the government.

    All in a plan to undermine the traditional family of one man and one woman. They want citizens addicted to government welfare in all its forms.

    Just like the sexu@lly liberated @theists are addicted to meth or pot. To improve their overall sexu@l experience.

    And they want “free” government provided medical marijuana. And a “free” government doctor to monitor them. So they don’t die of a drug overdose.
    From the crystal meth they voluntarily put into their own bodies.

    All that has been opposed by religious conservatives. It has always been religious people who wanted a small less intrusive government.

    Mr. anonymous you can talk “small government” all you want. But you’re not voting for any conservative (religious) less government candidate.

    In other words having a gun doesn’t make you a 2A supporter.
