This is an important case because it is testing state gun laws against Colorado’s strong right-to-keep-and-bear-arms state constitutional provision.
Our brief provides a historical examination of why the right was specifically protected by the state constitution, and applies that to today’s context.
Anti-gunners are constantly arguing that there is no historical support for protecting modern repeating firearms and our brief provides proof that repeating rifles capable of holding 15 or more cartridges were in existence long before Colorado became a state in 1876. The framers of Colorado’s constitution knew exactly what they were doing.

SAF JOINS IN AMICUS BRIEF SUPPORTING CHALLENGE TO COLORADO GUN CONTROL
[See also BREAKING: FPC, FPF Join Challenge to Colorado Gun Magazine Ban, File Colorado Supreme Court Brief.
SAF and friends don’t win them all but they win a lot of the lawsuits against the anti-gunners. And sometimes they get the antigun city and/or state to pay for the lawsuit.
I think this is the best bet, short of changing our culture, which I’m also working on, to reduce and perhaps eventually stop the infringement upon our rights. My employer and I donate thousands of dollars to SAF and FPF each year.—Joe]
