In response to recent inquiries made by Colorado FFLs related to the implementation of HB 13-1228, the following updates are being provided:
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) InstaCheck Unit would like to take a moment to provide a quick update related to the status of the firearm legislation signed into law on March 20, 2013.
With the recent passage of firearm bills during the 2013 legislative session, the CBI is working to create processes to address the implementation of those laws. Specifically, the CBI is creating the framework for conducting universal background checks, and the process by which fees will be collected related to firearms transfers in the state.
We understand this is a new process for everyone involved, and we will work with you to address these challenges moving forward. Our goal is to provide frequent communication and updates in the coming days and weeks related to these issues to make this transition as effortless as possible.
As stated earlier, HB-1228 went into effect on March 20, 2013. It requires a $10.00 fee to be collected during the sale of a firearm in Colorado. We are currently finalizing the system by which you will be required to collect the fee and remit the payment to the State of Colorado. That information will be provided through this message board, the CBI InstaCheck Web Site and other means.
Universal background checks (HB1229) states private sales of firearms are subject to a background check conducted by a licensed firearms dealer. This law will go into effect on July 1, 2013.
Again, CBI will continue to coordinate with FFLs throughout the state as processes are finalized. We greatly appreciate your patience as we move forward. The CBI InstaCheck Unit also plans to provide updates involving these laws on our public web site (www.cbi.state.co.us) in the coming days and weeks.
