Opting to support marijuana usage instead of supporting 2nd Amendment rights for its citizens, the Colorado House of Representatives passed their second reading of HB1224, HB1226, HB 1228 and HB1229. These 4 blatantly anti-Second Amendment bills, if passed on Monday, 18 Feb 2013, at 10:00, will set back many of the freedoms law abiding Colorado citizens have worked for.
House Bill 1224 – Bans magazines with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds.
House Bill 1226 – Repeals current law allowing individuals with a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus.
House Bill 1228 – Imposes a “gun tax” for a background check when purchasing a firearm.
House Bill 1229 – Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm.
If you are a Colorado resident contact your state representative and let them know that you oppose any infringements on your 2nd Amendment rights.
