  • HB130 is a child access prevention bill. This is a youth driven bill by teenagers in our group. It would hold gun owners liable if their firearm gets in the hands of a minor and that minor hurts him or herself or someone else.
  • HB129 This bill would tighten our criminal code so that only security guards can carry firearms at school and not teachers.
Here are the contact numbers for the committee:
Representative Liz Thompson (D):
Representative Andrea Romero (D)
Representative Candy Spence Ezzell (R)
Representative Angelica Rubio (D)
Representative Gregg Schmedes (R)
