Self-Defense Bill Passes House

This morning, Representative Cory Gardner's "Make My Day Better" bill, HB07-1011, passed the house on 3rd reading with a 34-31 vote in favor of the bill.

The HB07-1011 now passes over to the Senate where Senator Ted Harvey is the prime sponsor.

The bill expands Colorado's current self-defense laws, to afford places of business the same self-defense "castle" provisions that private residences have.

Ordinarily, I wouldn't expect this bill to get far in the Senate, but with the change in fortunes of Morse' anti-gun bill yesterday, anything could happen.

The Rocky Mountain Gun Owners support HB07-1011.
