Colorado: Anti-Gun Legislators Push Measures to Beat Down Law-Abiding Gun Owners
Friday, February 01, 2013
(Ammoland.com)- While proactive legislation to increase safety and security in the Centennial State is being ignored and cast aside, anti-gun legislators are continuing to push misguided measures that will disenfranchise law-abiding gun owners and have no effect on mitigating crime.
This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected two bills that would have provided protections for Colorado’s law-abiding citizens:
Senate Bill 9, sponsored by state senators Scott Renfroe (R-13) and Ted Harvey (R-30), was postponed indefinitely by a 3 to 2 vote. SB 9 would have authorized a school district board of education and the governing board of a charter school to adopt a written policy to allow an employee of the school district or charter school to carry a concealed handgun on school grounds if the person holds a valid permit to carry a concealed handgun.
Senate Bill 62, sponsored by state Senator Kent Lambert (R-9), was postponed indefinitely by a 3 to 2 vote. SB 62 would have established civil liability for businesses that prohibit the carrying of firearms on their premises, if a patron incurs damages from another person and is unable to defend themselves due to the prohibition on carrying a firearm.
