HEXMAG OWNER INVITED TO HELP ARGUE COLORADO MAGAZINE LAW AT UPCOMING SENATE COMMITTEE
SENATE BILL 17-007 WOULD UNDO CERTAIN COLORADO GUN LAWS
Colorado Senate Republicans are pushing to repeal the state’s ban on ammunition magazines of more than 15 rounds, and representatives have invited Hexmag owner Aaron Schefter to give his support at a Senate Committee meeting this Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.
Without a doubt, he’ll be there to advocate for law-abiding Coloradans’ Second Amendment rights.
Senator Vicki Marble, Representative Lori Saine and Representative Stephen Humphrey have carried Senate Bill 17-007 to the Senate Committee. Not only does this bill repeal the probation on the sale, transfer and possession (magazines purchased in Colorado after the law) of large-capacity ammunition magazines, it would also eliminate provisions that force Colorado manufacturers (like us) to stamp magazines with a production date.
The most recent Fiscal Note argues that the bill could reduce costs and workload for local law enforcement and district attorneys who have to investigate or prosecute violations, and the bill’s proponents argue that they want to “undo the damage done by gun-grabbing Democrats and the anti-gun Obama administration.”
Republicans are seeking committee referral to move the bill the Colorado House. There in the House, similar bills have failed over the last several years since the law took effect in 2013, but this time, Republicans hope to shift opinion to repeal a law that has failed citizens.
We’ll keep you posted on how Tuesday goes …
