U.S.A. -( Two anti-gun measures, House Bill 1298 and House Bill 1299, have been scheduled for committee hearings tomorrow and Friday, respectively.  Please click the below “Take Action” buttons and ask committee members to OPPOSE House Bill 1298 and House Bill 1299.


House Bill 1298 allows for the indefinite delay of firearm transfers. Current state law allows licensed firearm dealers to proceed with firearm transfers if the Colorado Bureau of Investigation does not make a determination within three days, for what is supposed to be an instant background check done by computers. It is also what federal law considers appropriate for firearm dealers in other states that use the federal NICS background check system. Without this “safety valve,” mismanagement or deliberate meddling by bureaucrats with the background check system can result in access to Second Amendment rights being unjustly delayed or denied.

In addition, HB 1298 goes beyond federal law by expanding the criteria in which individuals lose their Second Amendment rights without due process.


House Bill 1299 uses taxpayer dollars to create a so-called “Office of Gun Violence Prevention” to generate propaganda promoting eroding the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. While NRA does not oppose objective research into the root causes of violence, and violence prevention is a laudable goal, biased “research” focusing solely on firearms is often used to generate propaganda pushing for more gun control. This office is also to publicize the procedures for obtaining “red flag” orders to take away Second Amendment rights without due process, and is apparently not to make recommendations holding criminals accountable for their actions, as their efforts must be “without contributing to mass incarceration.”

Again, please click both of the above “Take Action” buttons and ask committee members to OPPOSE House Bill 1298 and House Bill 1299.​

There is at least one Sheriff in Colorado who has the stones to go on record concerning the issues although to clarify further from what he is saying the Colorado Constitution also restores all rights once jail sentences are completed for crimes committed exactly as it states in the section of “Suffrage”. “Statement from Teller County Sheriff Jason Mikesell I believe the Constitution of the United States of America is the backbone of our Country. The Constitutional Amendments are absolute; they are the building blocks and the very fabric that makes us different from other Countries. The Second Amendment states… Read more »

Colorado is Cali East, the East side of the tracks. From Rally For Our Rights: “HB21-1298 Expand Firearm Background Check Requirements • Adds 11 misdemeanors to the list of background check disqualifiers. • Removes the option for FFLs to transfer a firearm to new owner if background check is formally delayed for more than 3 days.  • Extends the time agencies have to review a background check denial from 30 days to 60 days, and allows for indefinite denial without disposition in certain instances.” But it is not only 2A rights they are taking in Colorado, they are also taking private property… Read more »
