What sort of mind virus leads simpletons to think that banning America’s favorite rifles and other similar guns, along with the magazines that feed them and other popular self-defense firearms will somehow make good guys safer? Colorado Democrats are the latest to propose an “assault weapons” ban, following the lead of other blue states like Minnesota, Maryland, New Jersey and Illinois.
Interestingly, Illinois’ gun ban has already been blocked by a judge. So has New Jersey’s. Yet that hasn’t slowed other states…the lates of which is Colorado.
The bill, HB23-1230, is your typical “assault weapons” ban with a side helping of gun parts, like flash suppressors, and collapsible stocks thrown in.
KDVR has the story:
DENVER (KDVR) — Democrats on Friday introduced a bill to ban so-called “assault weapons” in Colorado.
Sponsored by Rep. Elisabeth Epps and Sen. Rhonda Fields, the bill “prohibits a person from manufacturing, importing, purchasing, selling, offering to sell, or transferring ownership of an assault weapon,” as well as rapid-fire trigger activators, according to the document.
It’s written to take effect upon passage, with penalties to kick in after July 1.
The idea of a ban on certain firearms in Colorado was on the minds of demonstrators at the Capitol on Friday. Hundreds of high school students, who are mourning a fellow classmate gunned down outside of school, marched to the statehouse to demand action on gun violence.
Rep. Meg Froelich, who is sponsoring other gun legislation this session, was at the Capitol on Friday and told FOX31’s Gabrielle Franklin about Democrats’ strategy on such a weapons ban.
Colorado’s ban doesn’t seem to stand any better chance of surviving court challenges as the others in a post-Bruen world. But that doesn’t seem to matter to anti-gun politicians and their cheering sections in the media and the gun control industry.
