Democrats Protect Governor’s Power to Confiscate Firearms

Senator Scott Renfroe (R-Greeley) issued the following statement today on the Democrats failure to pass Senate Bill 38, which would have prohibited the Governor from confiscating firearms during an emergency. 

“It is disappointing that Democrats would support confiscation of firearms during a declared disaster when 911 does not work,” said Renfroe. “Coloradans have a right to protect their families and not be victimized during disasters because the Governor seized their only means of protection.” 

SB 38 would have eliminated the Governor’s authority to suspend the sale, distribution or transportation of firearms during a declared state of disaster emergency. The bill failed on a party line vote.
