First, we beat the gun-grabbers at the ballot box last week in the recall elections….Now, we’re going to beat them in court.

Colorado --(Ammoland.com)- As of July 1st 2013, the gun-grabbers’ radical policies of expanded Brady registration checks and the magazine ban have gone into effect in Colorado.

In addition to RMGO’s plans to fight for repeal of these anti-gun laws in the Colorado Legislature, we are announcing our plans to take both of these draconian laws to court.

RMGO, working with John Sternberg, a Pueblo resident, and Matt Solomon of Alpine Arms, is filing a lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of both HB 13-1229 (Expanded Brady Registration Checks) and HB 13-1224 (The Magazine Ban).

The gun-grabbers may claim that they are expanding background checks under the guise of “public safety,” but you and I both know better –- they want to track and register every single one of your firearms and ban private sales altogether.

The simple truth is, if the anti-gunners can’t get an outright ban on all firearms, they’ll dismantle your Second Amendment rights piece by piece –- and that’s exactly what’s happening here.

This measure goes so far as to limit your ability to loan, sell, or even gift your firearm to those closest to you. It doesn’t matter if it’s for hunting, shooting at the range, or even loaning a firearm to a friend you may feel is in danger.

These laws overreach so many constitutional barriers it’s not even funny. That’s why we need your help to put a stop to this ban.

In addition to challenging expanded Brady registration checks, RMGO’s lawsuit also attacks the constitutionality of the draconian magazine ban.

You see, HB 13-1224 doesn’t just ban all magazines over 15 rounds, it also bans all magazines with a removable floor plate (nearly every magazine) that can be readily converted to hold more rounds –- something even the bill’s chief sponsor, gun-grabbing Rep. Rhonda Fields, has publicly confirmed.

To make matters worse, many firearms with fixed tube or box magazines can also be readily converted to hold more rounds than the 15-round limit, essentially banning the firearm itself.

HB 13-1224 also requires that any gun owner with “grandfathered” magazines (those purchased before July 1st, 2013) maintain “continuous possession” of that magazine.

This provision means the grandfathered owner of the magazine is strictly prohibited from ever allowing anyone to hold or use the firearm if the firearm is in a functional state –- making it impossible for firearms to be used and shared in ordinary and innocent ways.

As law-abiding gun owners, you and I both intuitively know that the ban on all magazines over 15 rounds directly and gravely harms our ability to use firearms for lawful purposes, especially self-defense.

Getting the radical anti-gun agenda repealed or overturned is not going to happen overnight, and it certainly won’t be easy.

That’s why we’ve enlisted a top notch legal team for this lawsuit.

But, as you may know, lawyers are not cheap, and this is bound to be an expensive protracted legal struggle.

If we are going to win, we can’t afford to hold anything back –- especially with our constitutional rights at stake.

Your support is essential if we are going to have the resources to fully fund this lawsuit.

Will you do your part in helping us fight the radical anti-gun agenda and rush us an immediate contribution?

It’s up to you. Please send help if you can.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Director

    1. We have something that money can’t buy. The numbers in people who stand behind what we believe in. The gun grabber soon get tired of standing up for what they think they believe in and they let the other guy do it, who lets the other guy do it…
      We are johnny on the spot to rebuff every threat to the man and woman. We don’t let others do our work for us, no matter how much time or hard it may get to keep it up. We love our jobs. The gun grabbers don’t and as Bloomberg proved and is proving, throwing money at it just makes you poorer. Yes, it takes money to run these things, but it also takes a lot more than a bus full of retards to keep the ball rolling.

      First let’s get this real accurate. Rocky Mountain Gun owners, namely Dudley brown who “owns” the association had NOTHING, let me repeat that, NOTHING in any way to do with the recall of either of the two Colorado senators.

      He and by definition RMGO was dis invited from any precipitation by both of the two separate and successful recall groups from the very beginning and he did try to horn in for some credit all the while telling many others including me that these two recall groups had no chance of success.

      Now he is desperately trying to latch on to that credit because that is how he makes a living, but as one involved with both organizations from the start I assure you, he had nothing to do with either recall success and in fact he was involved with the two failed recall efforts–they let him get involved!

      I viewed your post…

      First let’s get this real accurate. Rocky Mountain Gun owners, namely Dudley brown who “owns” the association had NOTHING, let me repeat that, NOTHING in any way to do with the recall of either of the two Colorado senators.

      YOU are playing the SAME STUPID GAME that DUDLEY played, but you PISSED off a fellow gun owner attempting to help you. I tend to believe your are the OLD crowd of McCAIN??? YOU BETTER PULL YOUR AXX OUT OF YOUR AXX NOW!!

      POLITELY, I am saying, we are DONE with OBOMACARE, Social programs, PRETTY MUCH everything that conflicts with the CONSTITUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    7. I respect the fight of those who kicked the criminal element out of Colorado politics.I wish all of you the best in future battles.Here in New York state however,we expect a much more dangerous situation after April 15,2014.That’s when the “Safe Act” which was passed swiftly,in the night to confiscate firearms will take full effect.It’s when they’ll have false expectations of compliance.It’s also when New York State becomes a war zone.

    8. Good luck to any lawsuits you can prevail in as a result of the gun-grabbing,scum, politicians in CO. Those recalls spoke volumes to the rest of the country.
