Colorado: Semi-Auto Ban Passes House and “Sensitive Places” Expansion to be Heard in Committee

Gun Rights

On Sunday, HB24-1292 the semi-auto ban, received final passage in the House and has been transmitted to the Senate where it awaits a committee assignment. 

HB24-1292’s broad definition of “assault weapon” bans all semi-automatic rifles including America’s most common rifle, the AR-15, along with countless other rifles, pistols, and shotguns that Coloradans use for hunting, target shooting, and self-defense. The bill also bans .50 BMG rifles, despite the fact that these rifles are essentially never used in crime. Even worse, the ban extends to common firearm parts and many innocuous components in the definition of “assault weapon” and “rapid-fire trigger activator” (FRT/forced reset trigger).

“This unconstitutional ban on commonly owned firearms is the most anti-gun bill ever passed by the Colorado House,” said Travis Couture-Lovelady, NRA Colorado State Director. “HB24-1292’s broad definition of a so-called “assault weapon” bans all semi-automatic rifles, including America’s most popular rifle, the AR-15, along with countless other rifles, pistols, and shotguns that Coloradans use for hunting, target shooting, and self-defense. The NRA will continue to fight against this egregious bill as it moves through the legislative process.”
