The Battle is on --  Legislators rally their supporters for/against Gun Control.   What do you think?

On the heels of Aurora and Sandy Hook, we're looking at gun control measures to curb senseless violence in America and Colorado. While the second amendment's judicial interpretation accords American rights to bear arms, the operative question falls in the middle between the American need to curb violence and the Constitutional rights to bear arms. Rights are relative, not universal. But whose rights and responsibilities are paramount in the Gun Control Debate? What do you think? See below for your chance to both BLOG and VOTE on this issue. Below is also a collaborative request by Colorado Representative Kevin Priola.

---The Following Statement is from Colorado Representative Kevin Priola ---


We need you to come to the state Capitol on Tuesday, February 12 and Wednesday, February 13 to show your opposition and speak against the following anti-gun bills:

 

On Tuesday, February 12, House Bill 13-1224 and House Bill 13-1229 are scheduled to be heard in the House Judiciary Committee in the Old Supreme Court Chamber in the Capitol upon adjournment of the House.  HB13-1224, sponsored by state Representative Rhonda Fields (D-42), would ban magazines that hold more than ten rounds.  HB13-1229, sponsored by state Representatives Rhonda Fields and Beth McCann (D-8), would prohibit and criminalize the private transfer of firearms.

 

On Wednesday, February 13 House Bill 13-1226 will be heard by the House Education Committee upon adjournment in the Old Supreme Court Chamber, and House Bill 13-1228 will be heard by the House Finance Committee at 1:30 pm in the Old Supreme Court Chamber.  HB13-1226, sponsored by state Representative Clare Levy (D-13), would repeal the current right to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense on a college or university campus.  HB13-1228, sponsored by state Representative Lois Court (D-6), would require law-abiding citizens to pay a fee (or gun tax) for a background check when purchasing a firearm.

 

We need you to come to the state Capitol on Tuesday, February 12 and Wednesday, February 13 to tell state legislators, especially those serving on these committees, to vote NO on HB13-1224, HB13-1226, HB13-1228 and HB13-1229.  Without your direct help this next week, these anti-gun legislators will steal away your Second Amendment rights!  Please come to the state Capitol in Denver no later than 9:00 am to respectfully protect your rights.
