Denver City Council Passes Ban on Custom-made Firearms

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the Denver City Council voted to pass a bill banning custom-made firearms, referred to as “ghost guns.”  The measure now heads to the desk of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock.  Please contact Mayor Hancock and ask him to OPPOSE this “ghost gun” measure.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Last year, Governor Polis signed SB21-256 into law, giving cities and local governments in Colorado the authority to establish their own gun regulations that are more stringent than state law.  Using this authority, the Denver city council has now criminalized custom gun makers and their customers by passing a bill banning “ghost guns.” Repealing the state preemption law gave the anti-gun-controlled city council the opportunity to push their encroachment on the Second Amendment, instead of tackling the real issue of crime.

There is scant evidence that these types of custom firearms are used in crimes in Denver or any other city in Colorado. Criminals are not interested in costly equipment and the time-consuming and laborious process of manufacturing their own firearms when they can simply remove serial numbers from firearms to achieve the same purpose.  When asked about whether these types of firearms are a problem, the Denver Chief of Police told the council that they rarely run into “ghost guns.”

The measure makes it unlawful in Denver to create, carry, transport, discharge or sell guns that do not have serial numbers.  Breaking the law could result in forfeiture of the gun, a fine of up to $999, and up to 300 days in jail. The bill will go into effect immediately after Mayor Michael Hancock signs it into law.  Again, please contact Mayor Hancock and ask him to OPPOSE this “ghost gun” measure.

Thank you to our NRA members who contacted their City Council to oppose the “ghost gun” bill.  Stay tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts for more information and updates on Second Amendment issues in the Centennial State.

Boulder, CO must still be smarting from their court loss to ban firearms and paying plaintiff’s legal fees. So the activists moved to Denver which has a bigger pocketbook. Still going to have the same outcome but will cost more money to ligagate before recovery of legal fees. Keep suing the bastards!

Good luck with that…

This is what happens when communists invade your state. They destroy your freedom and way of life. After they have destroyed your state they move to the next free state and start the process again.

This is happening on a very large scale during this scamdemic and it’s all part of the great reset.

Keep you powder dry and close to hand.

They have also invaded our government. known as DEMOCRATS in this nation.

Serial numbers were not REQUIRED on any gun in USA before 1968 mfgr. Quality makers used SN for their own purpose of warranty. Millions of guns made from late 1800 to 1968 new had a SN. Grinding off a SN does not make it unrecoverable. The stamping alters the steel, bras s or other material A small tip welding torch and filler rod does the trick. But who really cares? Armed robbery and carjacking aren’t even prosecuted anymore. Guns are stolen, whipped clean of prints and the I an away or sold at a. Buyback. Another gun can be stolen… Read more »

Don’t go to Colorado and problem solved…LET’S GO BRANDON!

I wish that solve the problem. But once this crap passes in Colorado, it moves on to other states and the infection will soon arrive in YOUR state. Colorado is not the first state with anti-“ghost“ gun laws they already exist in at least CA and I think NY.

It has to be stopped, via one of the “four boxes” — preferably the ballot box. VOTE, and vote carefully, this November.

Hancock is a thug. State will approve. Possibly in the next 10 years attorneys will challenge the police state and fail because, They only bring a state constitution suit leaving the federal constitution out of the game Colorado jesters have already for years told everybody that A) the states rules are presumed to be constitutional because the government created them B) they have told everybody for years that police state rules about guns are constitutional under the state constitution as long as those rules don’t infringe upon a gun firing at least one round of ammunition C) the jesters have… Read more »

Blatantly unconstitutional, and no US citizen should comply. We always have had the right to build our own firearms, since before We the People created the US gov and the Colorado gov, so they can take this “law” and shove it where the sun don’t shine. The traitors who proposed this atrocity are violating civil rights and need to go to prison.

But we are in time of war & national emergency so under Milligan it is an act of war. One of many charges all things being cumulative. Covid authoritarianism + disarmament = the death penalty. “I am a war time president” President Trump “Neither the legislature nor any executive or judicial officer may disregard the provisions of the Constitution in case of an emergency……….” To do so is an act of war upon the Constitution and We The People per Ex Parte Milligan, 71 U.S. 2 (1866) standing precedent today in USA Looks like the Deep State is going to… Read more »

No US enforcer should enforce.
