Pro-Rights Bills at the State House

February 24, 2015 in All by luke

Aside from Senate Bill 15-175 mentioned in our previous article, there are a few more pro-rights bills that have been introduced to the state legislature. Be sure to contact your Representatives and Senators to tell them to support these pro-rights bills.

HB 15-1168 by Rep. Neville, would allow holders of concealed carry permits to remain armed when entering public school property.  See http://blogs.denverpost.com/thespot/2015/02/02/former-columbine-student-wants-firearms-schools/116942/ for details.

HB 15-1114 by Rep. Saine, would prohibit state assistance to Federal authorities enforcing the provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) allowing for the indefinite detention of US Citizens without due process.   A virtually identical bill has passed through House committee in Virginia, and similar legislation is currently being considered in eight other states. This bill is up in the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee – Representative Dickey Hullinghorst’s “kill committee” – the morning of Wednesday, 02-18-2015.

HB 15-1138 by Rep. Ransom, would allow a concealed carry permit to substitute for a background check during the transfer of a firearm subject to HB 13-1229.
