The NRA is calling on gun rights supporters to flood the galleries of the Colorado State House tomorrow morning “to hold your state Representative accountable by making sure they vote NO on these restrictive bills.” The gun prohibitionists are trying to ram their gun control bills through the State House as fast as they can. They’ve ignored the testimony of hundreds opposed to these bills and passed them out of committee on a party line vote.
Session will convene at 9:00 a.m. on Friday. Please make plans to arrive no later than 8:30 a.m. to ensure a seat. If you are unable to attend session, please call AND e-mail your state Representative using the contact information provided here.
Magpul Industries reports that even if a manufacturing exemption is added to the bill, they will leave Colorado and take their jobs with them. They say they can’t disappoint their customers and ignore their convictions.
Magpul reports that they have met with representatives of Gov. John Hickenlooper’s administration and delivered that message. They are asking everyone, Coloradans and non-Coloradans alike, to contact the Governor’s Office to urging him to oppose this and the other gun control legislation.
Contact Governor Hickenlooper right now and urge him to oppose HB1224 and all other proposed firearm legislation to save Colorado jobs and support freedom in Colorado.
