Colorado HB13-1224 & HB13-1229

Post by Sinder » 12 Feb 2013, 22:25

Well tonight the House Judiciary Committee in Colorado passed these both onto the Committee of the Whole vote. wave goodbye to buying mags bigger than 15 rds and shotguns with more than 8 rd barrel cap. also wave goodbye to easy transfers to family and friends. all sales and tansfers now require a CBI check. the possibility of having to pay for those background checks is being heard later this weel. tomorrow, they are hearing to repeal the campus carry allowance.

might be time to move.

thankfully I just won a Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun today :D

Rhetorical question:
Did you email, call, snail mail, or visit your reps to tell them not to support such nonsense? And encourage others to do so as well?

It is something EVERYONE should be doing right now.

Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

:agree:
It will be a sad day here in Colorado if these stinking bills are allowed to pass the House and Senate. Mags of any capacity owned before 7-1-13 would still be legal to own. It would be illegal to sell, transfer or possess a mag with a capacity of more than 15 rounds after that date. Shotgun mags would be limited to 5 rounds after that date. A .22 cal tube ammo feeding device or a tubular mag in a lever action gun wouldn't be illegal.

Most firearm transfers would require require a background check. Gift transfers between immediate family, which would be limited to spouses, parents, children, siblings, grandparents and grandchildren would be exempt from background checks. A few other transfers such as firearms left in trusts and wills would also be exempt from background checks. Temporary transfers would be very restricted. It would be hard just to lend a buddy a gun. A licensed gun dealer may charge a fee for background checks not to exceed $10.

Lets all hope that these bills are defeated. It looks like if they can't get their bans passed at the federal level they will just try at the state and local level instead. Just ask our friends in New York how they like their new gun laws.

yeah I did my part. I am out of town this week so i could show up though. I would have testified on LE accuracy under duress and how the aveage citizen requires more rounds due to their decreased accuracy being even worse that trained LE.

I know a lot of gun owners who did nothing though which im convined was the biggest issue. Colorado is a huge gun owner state. most of the people I talk to dont feel their rights threatened.

First of all, private citizens statistically show greater accuracy than 'trained' LEOs. LEOs lose 7 people for every one lost in a mass shooting stopped by a private citizen.

Police have a higher gun accident rate than private citizens too.

Looks like MagPul will be having to relocate their business from Colorado due to the law as well. There is an amendment that they "passed" with a verbal yea/nay vote aimed at allowing magpul to continue production here, jut not sell its product here (which did not sound affirmative at all but they declaired it passed too lol) . its such a joke circus here

Pretty easy to research yourself using good ole google. Also FBI.gov has a lot of info Here is a few links:

Both articles do a great job of sourcing info and establishing research paradigm.
