On Monday, the Colorado House of Representatives passed House Bills 1224, 1226, 1228, and 1229, all of which would severely encroach on the rights of Colorado gun owners if signed into law. These bills have were rammed through their respective committees over the past few days in a veritable blitzkrieg to get them passed before gun owners could respond. All four will soon be heard by the senate.

I urge you to contact your state senator as soon as possible and ask them to vote “no” on all of these bills. If you’re not sure who your local legislators are, you can find them here: Project Vote Smart - The Voter's Self Defense System. You can also find your legislators’ contact information at Colorado General Assembly for the House and Colorado General Assembly for the Senate. In addition to succinctly voicing your opinions on the bills, it may be helpful to remind your legislators that you will be keeping their actions in mind during the 2014 election.

I would also encourage you to attend town hall meetings over the weekend. Such meetings are public forums where you can voice your opinions about issues affecting Colorado and your local community. We are trying to concentrate on the Senate townhalls, since the bills will be heard by the senate soon, but it would be great if you could let House members know how you feel. Also, if any of you are able to bring a video camera, we’d love to capture the meetings on film.

Please call your local city council or Republican Party or do a Google search to find town hall meetings going on in your area. I’ve provided the times and locations of a few local meetings that will be going on soon:
