2023 Colorado Assault Weapon Ban Defeated

On April 20th, 2023, Colorado gun owners were able to count a win in the gun rights arena.  A proposed assault weapon ban that had been gaining tracking was defeated during a session that went into the evening.  Thanks to messages and e-mails sent to local representatives and over 500 people showing up to the capitol to support gun rights, the assault weapons ban died in place.
