Colorado House To Kill Mag Ban Repeal

Notwithstanding the repeal bill passing with a generous bipartisan majority in the Senate, garnering votes from Dem Senators who needed to improve their standing with the peasants, S-7 was sent to the House Kill Committee where after no doubt lengthy hearings it will be unceremoniously killed on a party line vote.

Interested parties should make an effort to attend the hearings and point out the essential uselessness of the law as it stands right now.

On Wednesday, March 22, the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee has scheduled a hearing on Senate Bill 7.  Please contact members of the committee and strongly urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7.
Sponsored by state Senator Vicki Marble, SB 7 would repeal the anti-self-defense 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold.  Senate Bill 7 would allow law-abiding Coloradans to more effectively defend themselves and their loved ones and not be limited by a misguided law that criminals do not follow.  In February, the Colorado Senate passed Senate Bill 7 with a bipartisan 21-13 vote.
The Dems have reportedly been threatened with well funded primary opponents if they cross Mike Bloomberg on this or any other gun bill/law as the case may be. The Dems in the Senate are able to vote for this not because they've seen the light, but because they asr secure knowing that their brothers and sisters in the House will cover for them.

This is not to say that the fix is in since I vaguely remember bills being passed out of the Kill Committee in the past, but the odds are vanishingly small. So the game is rigged, but don't let that stop you. If you don't play, you can't win.
