Four Active Anti-2A Bills in Colorado

From The Colorado Freedom Force

It's déjà vu all over again.

Every year, Colorado Democrats put forth an entire slate of bills seeking to whittle away at the edges of our Second Amendment rights with one or two proposed laws mixed in seeking to strike right at the heart.

Whether the intended purpose is to spread proponents of the Second Amendment thin or to try to sneak a law or two in, our hope is to provide you with the information and resources this week to let your representatives know you are watching and that you oppose ALL proposed anti-second Amendment laws.

Below are four bills making their way through committee.

Four Anti-Second Amendment Bills

SB24-066 - Firearms Merchant Category Code

This bill will require payment processors to assign unique codes to any purchases of firearms or ammunition, threatening a $10,000 fine to any processor not in  compliance.

Recently, we have seen instances of "woke" banks de-platforming certain businesses who sell weapons, and a requirement of transaction codes like this only makes it easier.

Additionally, this also creates an expanded paper trail of weapon and ammunition purchases which could be used to spy on individual citizens illegally.

HB24-1292 - Prohibit Certain Weapons Used in Mass Shootings

This is an outright weapons ban. The bill defines the term "assault weapon" and prohibits a person from manufacturing, importing, purchasing, selling, offering to sell, or transferring ownership of an assault weapon. The bill further prohibits a person from possessing a rapid-fire trigger activator. A person in violation of the prohibitions will be assessed a first-time penalty of $250,000 and $500,000 for each subsequent violation.

But don't worry, the government will keep you safe! This law does not apply to a member of the United States armed forces, a peace officer, or other government officer or agent. Rules for me, but not for thee.

HB24-1270 - Firearm Liability Insurance Requirement

This bill will require firearm owners to maintain a liability insurance policy. Failure to maintain firearm liability insurance will result in a $500 fine for the first offense, and $1,000 for the second. Individuals who are denied insurance, or who cannot afford a policy are able to petition the court for an exemption on a case by case scenario. 

Not only is this likely unconstitutional, you could also apply the far-Left Democrat's logic and state that anything that is cost prohibitive is also racist.

HB24-1174 - Concealed Carry Permits & Training

Under existing Colorado law, an applicant for a permit to carry a concealed handgun must already demonstrate competence with a handgun. This bill aims to drastically expand the training and education involved in exercising your Second Amendment rights.

A law such as this will only hinder law-abiding citizens' ability to defend themselves and their families by burdening them with time consuming training and cost prohibitive classes. 

Nearly all the anti-Second Amendment bills passed in the 2023 session are being challenged in court currently, causing an unnecessary cost to taxpayers to take away their own Constitutional rights.

If we can stop them before they are passed into law, we not only defend our rights but our pocketbooks, too.
