Legislation We Oppose
HB21-1038 Concealed Handguns On School Grounds: This bill would remove the limitation of current law that prohibits a concealed carry permit holder from carrying a concealed handgun on public elementary, middle, junior high, or high school grounds. We oppose this bill because permitting more concealed weapons on school grounds does not contribute to safety or to greater health or peace of mind.
HB21-1098 Civil Liability For Extreme Risk Protection Orders: This bill would create a civil cause of action for a person who suffers injury or damages as a result of not being able to use a firearm to defend himself, herself, or his or her family as a result of a temporary extreme risk protection order or an ongoing extreme risk protection order. We oppose this bill as it is an attempt to erode the effectiveness and authority of extreme risk protection orders, which we have championed in past legislative sessions.
