Colorado: Senate Committee Defeats Anti-Gun Bill and Passes Pro-Gun Bill

Yesterday, the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee defeated anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 51 on a party line vote.  At the same time, the committee passed magazine ban repeal legislation, Senate Bill 52.  SB 52 will now go the Senate floor where it will await full consideration. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support Senate Bill 52.

Senate Bill 51, sponsored by Senator Michael Merrifield, would make it a crime to knowingly possess a “multi-burst trigger activator” that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm.  The broad and overreaching provisions in this legislation could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Senate Bill 52, sponsored by Senator Owen Hill, and Representatives Lori Saine and Stephen Humphrey, seeks to repeal the misguided 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold.  By removing this restriction, law-abiding Coloradans are not limited in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Again, please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support Senate Bill 52

Action Alert: Don’t Let the Media and Gun Control Activists Blame You for the Actions of Criminals — Contact Your Lawmakers Today!

Rather than address our broken mental health system, our inability to provide proper school security, or numerous failings by law enforcement and others to identify a clearly dangerous individual, all solutions that NRA supports, gun control activists want to blame the NRA, its members, and America’s 120 million law-abiding gun owners. Make no mistake, the NRA will not let the media elites get away with blaming its members and the gun-owning public for the acts of a single deranged person or the culture of inaction that allowed him to operate unchecked. The NRA is resolved to stand up to whatever forces seek to erode our freedom. Stand with us. Together, we are freedom’s last, best chance.
