U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- As promised, the 73rd Colorado General Assembly reconvened yesterday after taking a month-long recess due to COVID. It makes us wonder how much they are even needed if they can just recess on a whim.
On their first day back in session over 200 bills were introduced, 6 of them firearms related. We do anticipate more gun control bills to be introduced in the coming days, primarily a “mandatory waiting period” bill that would require a certain number of days between completing a background check and taking possession of the firearm, even if needed for self-defense due to an immediate threat.
Here’s what happened:
- SB21-078 Reporting of Lost and Stolen Firearms (mandatory reporting to law enforcement when you lose your gun in a boating accident)
- HB21-1106 Safe Storage of Firearms (mandatory locked storage)
- HB21-1070 Repeal Ammunition Magazine Prohibition (repeal hi-cap mag ban)
- HB21-1082 Gun Transfer Background Check Permit Exemption (allow firearms purchase without background check with current conceal carry permit)
- HB21-1098 Civil Liability For Extreme Risk Protection Orders (creates a civil liability for abuse of ERPO Red Flag Law)
- HB21-1038 Concealed Handguns On School Grounds (allows for conceal carry on school grounds)

We’ll keep you informed when these bills are scheduled for hearings the public can and should attend, as well as when new firearms-related bills are introduced.
