CO House Bill 23-1165 Prohibition of shooting on private property

by the Colorado State Shooting Association

Bill to prohibit rural Coloradans from discharging firearms on private property

‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ A new bill titled “County Authority To Prohibit Firearms Discharge,” which will authorize county commissioners to prohibit Coloradans from shooting on their own property, just passed through the Colorado House of Representatives and is now on its way to the State Senate. This bill will have a profound effect on the lifestyle and heritage of many rural Coloradans, who for generations have been shooting target practice and teaching their children how to handle firearms on their own property. It's terrible for multiple reasons. 1. It's dangerous to deprive responsible gun owners of the right to pass along their knowledge of safe practices with firearms. We need more gun-owners who are taught safe and responsible practices, not fewer. 2. It would place a severe burden on law enforcement, who would be expected to police shooting on private property far way from others. 3. It infringes on private property rights. 4. And of course, it's a gross violation of the Second Amendment. Nineteen members of the State House used every means to defeat and delay this bill. They were outnumbered, but we must continue their fight in the State Senate. The Colorado State Shooting Association (NRA's State Association) is committed to preventing this bill -- and all infringements on our rights -- from becoming law. We need your support. From the halls of the state capitol, to the courtroom, and every where in-between, we will always defend the Second Amendment. Our gun rights are worth protecting. CSSA has an all volunteer board, meaning that 100% of membership dues and donations go directly towards fighting bills like this and all funds stay right here in Colorado.
