House Bill 13-1224 prohibits the sale, transfer, or possession of large-capacity ammunition magazines or feeding devices, which includes:1. a fixed or detachable magazine, box, drum, feed strip, or similar device capable of accepting, or that is designed to be readily converted to accept, more than 15 rounds of ammunition . . .
Penalties for simple possession of large-capacity magazines are:
First-time violation is a Class 2 misdemeanor with a $250-$1,000 fine and 3-12 months in prison. Violation after a conviction for a prior violation is a Class 1 misdemeanor with a $500-$5,000 fine and 6-18 months in prison. . .
Regarding transportation:"Transporters. A person who possesses a large-capacity magazine for the sole purpose of transporting the magazine to an out-of-state entity on behalf of a Colorado manufacturer of such magazines is also exempt from the law."
It doesn't say what the penalty is for someone transporting magazines INTO Colorado, but I guess we'll find that out.
So, what I need to know, among other things, is:
1. What are the relevant Colorado laws regarding concealed and open carry on the Capitol steps in Denver?
2. Can we get a sizable number of armed folks there on a Saturday to conspire with me to violate the law?
My intention is to smuggle in 100 30 round AR or AK magazines and pass them out to the assembled (armed) crowd. ("Here, take one and pass them back.") They ought to disappear like water in the desert. Then, having violated their unconstitutional law in full view of the television cameras, dare the "authorities" to do anything about.
