Ritter vetoes the Brady Bypass bill; Last day before Life Member, T-Shirt price increases
5/15/09 - Despite the hundreds of calls and e-mails his office received, Colorado Democrat Gov. Bill Ritter today vetoed HB1180, the Brady Bypass bill, showing his anti-gun bias and setting the tone for his 2010 re-election campaign.
The bill would have allowed Colorado concealed carry permit holders -- all of whom have already undergone an extensive background check and fingerprinting -- to skip the Brady Registration Check when purchasing a firearm, since they've already proven they are law-abiding. Brady Registration Checks are currently taking hours, and effectively denying citizens their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
The bill passed the legislature with 19 Democrat votes, showing it had broad bi-partisan support (almost one-third of the Democrat Caucus in the Colorado General Assembly). Senate sponsor Greg Brophy (R-Wray) called the bill a mere "pre-approval process" for a firearms purchase.
Anti-gun activist Tom Mauser and many "law enforcement" agencies (who testified against the bill) are undoubtedly happy to have Gov. Ritter in their pocket.
