Huge Victory for Colorado Gun Owners: Semi-Auto Ban Dead for 2024 Session!

Gun Rights

On Tuesday, May 7th, The Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs voted to indefinitely postpone House Bill 1292, the semi-automatic ban, officially taking the bill off the table for this legislative session. This is a critical victory for all law-abiding gun owners in Colorado!

HB24-1292’s broad definition of “assault weapon” would have banned 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 aimed to ban .50 BMG rifles, despite the fact that these rifles are essentially never used in crime. Even worse, the ban extended to common firearm parts and many innocuous components in the definition of “assault weapon” and “rapid-fire trigger activator” (FRT/forced reset trigger).

Thank you to all NRA members and fellow Second Amendment advocates who engaged with their legislators regarding this bill. Please stay tuned to the NRA-ILA website and your inbox for updates as the 2024 legislative sessions comes to a close.
