The 2015 legislative session in Colorado began with the introduction of multiple pro-gun bills.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, the proposed laws are seen as a response to anti-gun legislation passed by Democrats in 2013.

The bills are as follows (via NRA-ILA): House Bill 1009, introduced by state Representative Steve Humphrey (R-48), would repeal the 15-round magazine limit law. House Bill 1049, introduced by state Representative Justin Everett (R-22), would “extend the protection and right to self-defense you currently have in your home to your place of business,” the NRA-ILA says.

House Bill 1050, introduced by state Representative Janik Joshi (R-16), would repeal the private transfer background check law which passed during the 2013 legislative session. The last measure, Senate Bill 32, introduced by state Senator Vicki Marble (R-23), would legally allow law-abiding Colorado residents to carry concealed without a concealed carry permit. It would also retain the current system which allows concealed carry permit holders to legally carry in other states with which Colorado enjoys reciprocity.

All of these bills have already received committee assignments, the NRA-ILA said, but no hearing dates have been set thus far. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
