One document I came up with regarding gun purchases in Colorado has an asterisked comment to the effect that California law prohibits California residents from purchasing guns in Colorado.
I am astounded and dumbfounded that California can presume to take away a Citizen's 2nd Amendment right in the first place, holding it hostage to availing oneself of a privilege, by participating in a voluntary Federal benefits program, and using it's number, but it seems totally ridiculous that the state of Colorado would concern itself at all with California law, which has ABSOLUTELY NO JURISDICTION in Colorado!
Here is the excerpt:
COLORADO INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM
BEFORE CALLING THE CBI:
The potential firearm transferee must be present.
The Department of the Treasury Firearms Transaction Record (Form 4473) must be filled out completely by the
transferor. Identification must be verified by the FFL.
1. Have the customer complete the Department of Treasury Form 4473.
A. If the customerâ€™s answers indicate a prohibition, do not call the CBI.
B. Check the DOB. If the customer is under 21 years of age he/she can not purchase a handgun, but can purchase
a long gun.
C. If the customer is 21 years of age, he/she can purchase either a handgun or long gun.
D. If the customer did not write out his/her middle name, or only wrote the initial, request the full middle name.
E. Check the Customersâ€™ State of residence. If customer is not a resident of Colorado they cannot buy a handgun. Colorado residency requirements do not apply for long gun sales.
*Per California law, residents of California cannot purchase any firearms in Colorado.
So what does this mean? If they determine you are a California resident they will not allow you to buy a rifle or shotgun in Colorado, but if you are a resident of any other state you can? How does THAT work?
