2013 Bills

No federal laws concerning Colorado firearms

SB 13-140

KentuckyThis 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:

  1. Is manufactured commercially or privately in or outside of Colorado, and
  2. 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.

SB 13-069

The bill establishes a private school tuition income tax credit for income tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2014, that allows any taxpayer to claim a credit when a private school issues the taxpayer a credit certificate for enrolling a dependent qualified child in the private school or for offering a scholarship to a qualified child for enrollment in the private school.

Conservation Easement Tax Credit Term

SB 13-130

Taxpayers are allowed to claim a state income tax credit for a portion of the value of a conservation easement that the taxpayer donates. The law currently requires the easement to be perpetual. The bill allows future donations to have terms of not less than 25 years. The easement would otherwise have to comply with all federal and state requirements for conservation easements. The valuation of the easement for purposes of calculating the tax credit would have to take into account the fact that the easement is not perpetual.
