Two formal events have sprung up online that are encouraging Colorado gun owners to engage in civil disobedience and break the law the day it goes into effect.
July 1 is the starting date for the controversial law that will ban the sale, transfer or possession of magazines capable of holding more than 15 rounds.
The first of the two events dubbed “Magazine Swap at the Capital,” urges those from Colorado and surrounding areas to buy, sell and swap ammo magazines that hold more than 15 rounds to gather at the state capital. The following event is set for July 2 and encourages people to upload images and video to various social media outlets.
Although a majority of Colorado sheriffs have signed on to a lawsuit to try to overturn the new law, it’s unclear if law enforcement will make arrests during both events. Breaking this new law can result in a class 2 misdemeanor in the state.
