Under 21 May No longer Purchase Firearms from FFL's in Colorado
Important Update For FFLs in Colorado
Effective Monday August 7, 2023, individuals under the age of 21 may no longer purchase firearms from Federal Firearms Licensees, in Colorado. Pending litigation is challenging this measure in which a Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) has been filed. If the US District Court for the District of Colorado does not grant the measure the law will go into effect Monday. Should the Court grant the TRO the effective date will be pushed back for a yet to be determined period of time during which it is expected a Motion for a Preliminary Injunction would be filed to stay the law indefinitely until litigation on the matter is concluded.
SB23-169 will prohibit anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing a gun. Exceptions are made for active members of the United States armed forces, peace officers, and those who are certified by the Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) board.
