U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On January 3rd, 2022, the Denver City Council will vote on a bill to ban custom-made firearms, which are currently referred to as “ghost guns.” This means we only have a few days left to stop the City of Denver from infringing on law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights. Please contact your City Council and respectfully ask them to OPPOSE the “ghost gun” ban.
Earlier this year, Governor Polis signed SB21-256 into law, giving cities and local governments in Colorado the authority to establish their own gun regulations that are more stringent than state law. Using this authority, the Denver city council now seeks to criminalize custom gun makers and their customers by passing a bill banning “ghost guns.” Repealing the state preemption law gives the anti-gun-controlled city council the opportunity to push their encroachment on the Second Amendment, instead of tackling the real issue of crime.
Not only is the City Council wanting to make criminals out of law-abiding citizens, but they want to address the imaginary issue of “ghost guns.” There is scant evidence that these types of custom firearms are used in crimes in Denver or any other city in Colorado. Criminals are not interested in costly equipment and the time-consuming and laborious process of manufacturing their own firearms when they can simply remove serial numbers from firearms to achieve the same purpose.
Again, please contact your City Council before Monday, January 3rd, 2022, and ask them to OPPOSE the “ghost gun” ban. The sign-up for public comment on the Denver bill starts at noon on Friday, 12-31-21.
