Event Description

Starts at 9:00 a.m.

End -- very late?


All 7 of the gun bills are to be heard in the senate second reading.  The house debate for only 4 bills was lengthy so if you cannot arrive early, attend later and support these people.  It looks like there may be some bills leading in that may have less interest, but all of the bills are important.


SB13-192 -- (Heath) extend time for fingerprint checks

SB13-182 -- (Nicholson) deceptive practices...time share

HB13-1132 -- (Giron)

Jon Caldera talks to Senator Greg Brophy (R-Wray) on Devil's Advocate regarding the HB13-1229 baackground checks bill.  Sorting most of it out takes a few minutes and it is not very smooth:

Rep. Chris Holbert periodically posts helpful information about how to approach the various parts of the political process.  This latest subject may be particularly helpful to those who will be at the capitol on Friday.  These are things that I wish more of the legislators would convey.  Thank you, Representative Chris Holbert!

"EFFECTIVE ADVOCACY 101: If you're coming to the Capitol tomorrow to watch the gun debates in the Senate, then consider using this simple tool.

You are entitled to send a business card or note into the chamber to invite a member out to talk with you. Just write "Senator [Last Name]" on the front and a brief note on the back to explain whether you are a constituent and what you would like to discuss. Then, give your card to the Senate Sergeants who will deliver your card to the member.

It's a friendly and easy way to communicate with your legislators during floor debate. You might even be invited to sit in the chamber with your Senator."

Senator Steadman on behalf of the Senate GOP writes:

"Dear Coloradan,

On Monday, hundreds of concerned citizens flooded the Capitol to show their opposition to the Democrats’ gun control package being rammed through the General Assembly.  Despite the mass showing of opposition and heart breaking testimony, these measures passed through committee on a party-line vote.

But the fight for the Second Amendment isn’t over!  These bills will be debated tomorrow, Friday, March 8th, before the full Senate.  The vote is going to be close and it is not certain that these measures will pass.

So we are asking you to continue to reach out to your State Senator and respectfully ask them to vote NO on these extreme measures.

Also, please consider filling the Senate gallery to show your opposition to the proposed gun control bills. The Senate convenes at 9:00 a.m. The debate will likely go late into the night.

Thank you for standing up for the Second Amendment. My colleagues and I truly thank you for your support in assisting us in speaking out against these overreaching proposals.

Sincerely, "
