RMGO Magazine Ban Case To Go Before Colorado Supreme Court

Loveland, CO – Today, the Colorado Supreme Court granted cert to Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and the National Association for Gun Rights in their lawsuit against Governor Jared Polis and the State of Colorado concerning Colorado’s standard capacity magazine ban.

In 2013, the Colorado Legislature passed, and then Governor Hickenlooper signed, a law banning Coloradans from purchasing or possessing rifle and pistol magazines that can hold more than 15 cartridges. Persons who had the magazines could keep them, but could not lawfully sell them.

Now the Colorado Supreme Court will decided if the law is constitutional or not.

“There’s no doubt in our minds that the magazine ban is unconstitutional and that’s why we’ve been fighting against the law in the legislature and the courts,” said Dudley Brown, Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners.

RMGO and NAGR filed suit in Denver District Court, challenging the validity of the magazine ban. RMGO contended the ban was unconstitutional under the Colorado Constitution’s right to keep and bear arms clause, Article 2 Section 13.

“We’re glad that the Colorado Supreme Court has decided to hear our case, and we hope that the Court will make the correct decision and overturn the 2013 law which we’ve been fighting against tooth and nail. Law-abiding Coloradans deserve to have their rights restored, and the arbitrary ban on standard capacity magazines has done nothing to lower crime rates or keep Coloradans safe.” said Brown

The Colorado Supreme Court has yet to set a date for oral arguments.

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners is Colorado’s largest pro-gun organization, with over 200,000 members and supporters statewide.
