Last week, Jonathon M Anderson a partner at MagPul’s attorney Holland & Hart sent Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper this letter as an appeal that he veto House Bill 13-1224 which would outlaw magazines that hold more than 15 rounds or can be readily modified to do so. Their arguments against the ill-conceived legislation are reasonable. Oftentimes poorly researched and legislation results in unintended consequences particularly when they are rammed through with little consideration and based more on emotion than fact. This is certainly the case with this bill except that a multitude of experts spoke out against its passage as it made its way through the legislative process. You’d think that expert testimony might sway those truly interested in public safety and the rule of Constitutional law. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case. Please take a few minutes to read this well researched and articulated argument against this sweeping legislation which will most certainly be signed into law tomorrow.
