Gun Show Private Sale Brady Registration bill in trouble
Friday, Feb. 4, 2000 -- House Bill 1242, the measure that forces Brady Registration checks on private sales at gun shows, is up against the ropes and could be killed.
Let's help that bill take a dirt nap: call these swing vote State Legislators on the House Appropriations Committee , and tell them to vote against HB1242:
|State Rep. Debbie Allen||Aurora||303-866-2942||303-695-4920|
|State Rep. Gayle Berry||Grand Jct.||303-866-2582||970-255-9121|
|State Rep. Joyce Lawrence||Pueblo||303-866-2922|
|State Rep. Brady Young||Lamar||303-866-2940|
|State Rep. Nancy Spence||Aurora||303-866-2935||303-690-5106|
|State Rep. Gary McPherson||Aurora||303-866-2944|
You can call any State House member toll free by dialing 1-800-811-7647.
This committee is the last barrier before the bill makes it to the House floor, where it will be much more difficult to kill.
And the gun-grabber organizations are lobbying Rep. Allen very hard - they think she is the swing vote they need, so our pressure is even more important.
All of these legislators are Republicans, but not all the Republicans are on the fence: Committee Chairman Steve Tool of Fort Collins is openly supporting this gun control bill.
Governor Bill "Gun Control" Owens is actively pushing this bill, and was the driving force (along with House Speaker Russ George) behind getting this measure out of the House Judiciary Committee.
Tell the legislators that forcing private sales at gun shows to go through Brady Registration checks is just another backdoor method at gun owner registration. The next so-called "loophole" will be private sales in the newspaper, or private transfers in your own home, like when Grandpa gives his 22 year old grandson the family shotgun.
