Constitutional Carry Faces First Hurdle In Colorado Legislature
Contact Needed with Committee Members.

Colorado --(Ammoland.com)- Next week the Constitutional Carry bill faces it’s first hurdle in the Colorado Legislature when it is heard in the House Judiciary Committee.

On Thursday, Feb. 24th at 1:30pm the House Judiciary Committee will hear HB1205 by Rep. Chris Holbert (R-Parker) and Sen. Greg Brophy (R-Wray).

This bill already has a huge number of co-sponsors, but to reach the House floor it needs to first pass through this committee.

If you have not already done so, please sign our petition for Constitutional Carry.

And then take the time to join Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and help us pass Constitutional Carry in Colorado.

This bill is designed to do one thing: allow citizens who are legally eligible to possess handguns to carry that handgun concealed, without obtaining a costly, burdensome and bureaucratic permit.

This bill doesn’t get rid of the existing permits. It just gives citizens another option for self defense.

That’s what I call real freedom.

One of the chief advantages this bill presents is that citizens are not put on any government tracking list merely for carrying the tools for self defense, nor do they have to pay fees for a permit.

I’ve heard a lot of people say “The Constitution is my permit”, but this actually gives teeth to that thought.

Citizens in Vermont, Alaska and Arizona currently enjoy that right, and Wyoming could be joining that list in the next few weeks.

Just as important as what HB1205 does are what it does not do:

  • Does not repeal or otherwise change Colorado’s existing concealed carry permit law (CRS 18-12-201).
  • Does not authorize the carrying of a concealed handgun by felons, the mentally ill, juveniles or anyone otherwise prohibited from possessing a handgun under state and federal law.
  • Does not change where concealed handguns are allowed as defined by CRS 18-12-214.
  • Does not affect reciprocity agreements with other states in any manner.
  • Does not affect the ability of prosecutors to pursue charges for other crimes.

This bill is a major step for freedom, and is something every gun owner in Colorado should get behind.

Even if you already have a concealed carry permit, this bill is still a major advance for freedom, since it wouldn’t affect your permit.

Today, I need you to contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee to politely urge them to support this important legislation.

Note: Rep. Bob Gardner, the Committee Chairman, is the only Republican on this committee who has not yet co-sponsored this bill.

You can e-mail these State Representatives at the following addresses:

  • Bob Gardner R - bob.gardner.house@state.co.us
  • Mark Barker R - mark.barker.house@state.co.us

    1. Will this allow non residents the right to carry in Colorado? Right now, only a “resident” Colorado ccw or Resident Utah, and Florida can carry in Colorado. I’m a Nevada resident, with non resident utah and florida. I CANT carry in Colorado. My family lives in Colorado. This would be great when it passes
