MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2017 Colorado: Senate Committee to Hear Magazine Limit Repeal Legislation Next Week

On Tuesday, January 31, the Senate State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 7, legislation that seeks to repeal the misguided 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold.

SB 7 would remove this restriction so that law-abiding Coloradans are not limited in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and state Representative, and politely urge them to support Senate Bill 7 when it comes up for a vote.

I've been tied up so thanks for all the updates gang!

I received this email this morning...it looks like the House is scheduled to hear HB1097 this afternoon, which is the companion bill to the Senate Bill SB7, which was heard a few days ago.

Colorado: House Version of Magazine Limit Repeal Legislation to be Heard Today

Today, at 1:30pm, the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee is scheduled to hear House Bill 1097. Sponsored by state Representative Lori Saine, HB 1097 is the companion bill to Senate Bill 7, legislation to repeal the misguided 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold. It is important that you continue to contact members of the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7 when it comes up for a vote.


https://act.nraila.org/takeaction.aspx?AlertID=1470

If enacted, House Bill 1097 would allow law-abiding Coloradans to more effectively defend themselves and their loved ones and not be limited by a misguided law that criminals do not follow. Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact members of the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7 when it comes up for a vote.

If you haven't already done so, please take a moment to contact your elected reps and urge their support for this bill!

My apologies to those who participate in this thread for not keeping it updated recently. I recently had surgery and a hospital stay and I'm moving a little slowly.

SB7 is scheduled for a vote on Wednesday 3-22-17.

Colorado: House Committee to Consider Legislation to Repeal Magazine Ban

On Wednesday, March 22, the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee has scheduled a hearing on Senate Bill 7. Please contact members of the committee and strongly urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7.

Sponsored by state Senator Vicki Marble, SB 7 would repeal the anti-self-defense 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold. Senate Bill 7 would allow law-abiding Coloradans to more effectively defend themselves and their loved ones and not be limited by a misguided law that criminals do not follow. In February, the Colorado Senate passed Senate Bill 7 with a bipartisan 21-13 vote.


https://act.nraila.org/takeaction.aspx?AlertID=1424

Please take a few minutes to contact your elected leaders and the members of the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee and urge their support for this bill.

HB 17-1036 (Bill to Allow Concealed Carry in Schools), HB 17-1037 (Bill to Allow a Business Owner to Use Deadly Force Against an Intruder), and
HB 17-1097 (Bill to Repeal Ammunition Magazine Prohibition) were all defeated in the Democrat controlled House in a 6-3 party line vote.

SB 7, the companion bill to HB 17-1097 passed in the Republican controlled Senate.

This loss is, unfortunately, not unexpected due to the mixed control of the legislature. The Pro-2A crowd brought in experts to testify on behalf of the bill however, as usual, the anti-2A crowd brought in larger groups of protesters, including those sponsored by George Soros. Members of these groups made it clear that not only are they not willing to concede any repeal of the mag capacity ban but that they will be pushing for further 2A restrictions in the coming years.

This is why it is so very important that Pro-2A groups show up in force and continue to push back against these gun control efforts. We can't afford to let them take the initiative or to allow legislators to think there isn't enough support to back Pro-2A bills.

One victory this legislative session for those who support the use of weapons to legally defend themselves or others is that SB 17-08 PASSED, which will remove gravity assist and automatic knives from the list of illegal weapons and will go into effect later this Summer.

On a side note, DA George Brockler (R) (famous for his prosecution of the Aurora Theater shooter) just announced his candidacy for Governor. During a local radio show interview he stated that he was a handgun owner and 2A supporter and that he felt that the magazine capacity ban has done nothing to reduce or prevent crime. He made it clear that it wasn't at the top of his agenda, but that if the legislature were to put forth a bill to repeal the mag capacity ban that he would sign it.

Take 5. Keep your powder dry for the next engagement.

NRA-ILA Alert

Colorado: Preliminary Plan Could Close Public Lands to Target Shooting

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is in the process of developing a management plan for 658,200 acres of surface land in eastern Colorado within the BLM Royal Gorge Field Office. It recently released a document that provides an early look at how it could manage these public lands for the future. The BLM is seeking public comment through May 5th. Following analysis of the comments, the BLM will develop a draft management plan that will later be released for additional public comment.

This early review is a very important opportunity for all those who enjoy target shooting on these lands to let the agency know at this early planning stage how proposed management alternatives (Alternatives A through D) could positively or negatively affect recreation opportunities. Hunting is not affected by any of the Alternatives.

The “Preliminary Alternatives Report and Draft Basis for Analysis” can be reviewed online at: http://on.doi.gov/1HVULcA . Click on “Documents and Reports” in the left hand column. How each of the four Alternatives addresses target shooting is shown in the chart on pages 178 and 179. Other pages addressing target shooting are pages 193, 200, and 340.

Comments may be submitted to the BLM online at blm_co_rg_rmp_comments@blm.gov

Those who recreate on these lands are the most knowledgeable as to how management decisions will shape their own future use of these public lands. Please take the time to review the document and submit your comments to the BLM.


I've never shot on this land but I think it would be a shame for those who have not to have any input in how it is used or whether recreational shooting will be allowed on it. Please consider responding if you have any input on this land.
