    Understanding the New Colorado Gun Laws and Magazine Restrictions

    I am looking for a little help on the topic of the new magazine restrictions Colorado will have going into effect on July 1, 2013. I bought a gun this past week and had to pay the $10 background fee and while at the local gun stores I talked to the guys behind the counters and to no surprise got two differing answers on the new laws.

    My line of questioning basically revolved around 2 questions.

    Question 1: If I buy a new Glock on July 2nd and it comes with a 13rd magazine am I allowed to take it home?

    Answer 1: No, you can't take it home, since the magazine has a removable base plate it breaks the new law that will go into effect and we will have to send the magazine to CBI and they have to destroy it. In fact, any magazine with a removable base plate will be illegal under the new law. Hell, if you disassemble a magazine with a removable base plate and reassemble it, you have technically broken the law and have a "newly manufactured" high capacity magazine...

    Answer 2: Yes, you can take it home, a judge here in Colorado ruled that if the magazine is under 15 rounds, just because it has a removable magazine base plate does not mean it falls into the ban, the magazine has to be manufactured to hold more than 15 rounds from the factory

    Question 2: If I buy a new FsN can I take the gun home and leave the magazines?

    Answer 1: Yes you can take the gun home, but we have to send the magazines to CBI to be destroyed. Also we have to notify the CBI and ATF that you purchased a gun that can accept a magazine over 15 rounds...

    Answer 2: <Didn't ask the guy>

    Last item of conversation was that guy 1 told me that starting on July 1, 2013 there will be an injunction in place that will nullify the new magazine restriction. He insinuated that the lawsuit that the Colorado Sheriffs, NRA, and other organizations filed will file the injunction.

    Can anybody confirm what is actually going to be law with mags less than 15rds?

    Sorry I cannot answer your specific questions, but if you follow my advice you won't need to bother knowing the answers.

    I think the injunction will put any effects of the law on hold. Its kind of a wait and see right now.

    While I like to chit-chat with those at the counter at a gun store, they are typically not lawyers, while many are associated to law enforcement, some are active LE earning some part time money, but still, they are not really able to speak.
    If you really want an answer maybe you could contact the State Attorney General's office.

    Just moving out of the "affected areas" instead of staying to fight will screw everyone over time. The fewer firearms friendly states there are out there, the closer we get to Congress being able to repeal the 2nd Amendment or pass more "reasonable restrictions".

    An anti-gun state, especially if it has one or more large cities, will eventually start bleeding people and politics into the surrounded states. Just look at the North East and how NYC effectively spread its politics to CT, MA, NJ, MD, etc. for an example of this. The same is now happening in the western states and is why Colorado and Western Texas are suddenly falling as well because of their proximity to California (LA/SF.)

    Every state that falls will create two more anti-gun Senators and a number of ditto Representatives in the Federal Government. Consider that California has the highest number of Representatives in Congress of any state, this should scare the living daylights out of you if you enjoy your current freedoms.
