New Colorado Gun Control Law In Effect, But Don't Expect Criminals To Notice

In 2013, Democrats in Colorado approved a package of gun control laws, including a ban on so-called large capacity magazines, universal background checks, and more. Since then the state has only gotten more restrictive when it comes to the right to keep and bear arms, but while the left is cracking down on legal gun owners, violent crime continues to climb. In fact, Denver is on pace to top last year’s homicide totals, which were already the highest in three decades.

Now Colorado’s newest gun control law is in effect; one that will supposedly cut down on the ability of thieves to steal firearms. In reality though, I don’t expect that criminals will notice the new law at all.

The Isabella Joy Thallas Act, a gun control measure requiring gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement within five days of realizing that they’re missing, goes into effect Tuesday.

SB21-078 was signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis in April, and through an amendment, the bill was renamed as the “Isabella Joy Thallas Act” in honor of the woman who was murdered on June 10, 2020 while she and her boyfriend were walking their dog outside of their apartment in Denver’s Ballpark neighborhood.

The high-powered semi-automatic rifle used in the killing was stolen.

9Wants to Know confirmed earlier this year that an AK-47-style rifle belonging to former Denver police officer Sgt. Daniel Politica somehow ended up in the hands of the suspect accused of shooting and killing Thallas. Politica resigned from the Denver Police Department March 13.
