We aren’t done, but I’ve got some good news for you.
The first phase of passing Constitutional Carry through the Colorado State House was accomplished this morning. House members agreed to move this common-sense legislation forward by a vote of 40 to 25 (we'll post this vote when it becomes available on our website).
Even though we’re definitely not done yet (and I know that I don’t have to tell you that anything can happen in politics) this is still great news.
Because of your emails and phone calls, these House members have moved our bill through the house with an overwhelming majority.
A special thanks to the able leadership of long-time RMGO member State Rep. Chris Holbert (left), who now passes the baton to State Senator Greg Brophy (right).
Our next step is the assignment of the bill to a Colorado State Senate Committee.
Naturally, we'll keep you up to date on Colorado's Constitutional Carry Bill moves along.
NOTE ABOUT RECIPROCITY:
For those who still want – and have acquired – a Colorado concealed handgun permit, this bill wouldn’t change anything. Literally, zero would change.
But, if you’re a law-abiding citizen who doesn’t want to go through the trouble and expensive of acquiring a permit, you could still carry in Colorado.
If passed (it’s a long shot, with this State Senate and Governor), many people would still get/keep their permits, for a number of reasons, including carrying in other states where we have reciprocity agreements.
