This bill preserves your right to bear arms. It invokes the Tenth Amendment in Colorado, and it makes a declaration of state supremacy which aligns with the position statement of all 62 Colorado county sheriffs.
Any statute, rule, regulation, order, act, or actions of the United States federal government that becomes effective on or after January 1, 2013, shall be unenforceable within the borders of Colorado. This pertains to not just Colorado residents, but anybody inside Colorado's borders.
An employee, agent, or agency of the state, including but not limited to a peace officer, shall not enforce or attempt to enforce any statute, rule, regulation, order, action, or act of the United States government that relates to a firearm, ammunition, ammunition magazine, or firearm accessory that:
- Is manufactured commercially or privately in or outside of Colorado, and
- Remains exclusively within the borders of Colorado
This bill ensures "business as usual" for the sales of guns, ammuntion, magazines, or firearm accessories that are manufactured in and outside of Colorado. This bill protects licensed gun dealers from outside of Colorado and prevents any disruption of sales in Colorado.
