Colorado: House Passes Most Sweeping Anti-Gun Legislation in Recent History
The Colorado: House Passes Most Sweeping Anti-Gun Legislation in Recent History. Yesterday the Colorado legislature decided they know better than their constituents.
Over the past week hundreds of law abiding Colorado gun owners gathered to present the case for reasoned addressing of this constitutional issue. However the Colorado Legislature ignored the voters and passed the following:
House Bill 1224 ‚ Bans magazines with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds. (Passed 34-31)
House Bill 1228 ‚ Imposes a gun tax‚ for a background check when purchasing a firearm. (Passed 33-32)
House Bill 1229 ‚ Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm. (Passed 36-29)
The fight isn’t over as the group of Anti-gun legislation now moves to the Colorado Senate.
