Supporting Community Organizations

Voluntary, Temporary Gun Storage Options

Whether you’re traveling out of state and want extra peace of mind that your firearms are secure, have a teen at home in crisis and at risk for suicide, or your home is on the market and want to make sure that your firearms are secure while showings occur, you can use the Colorado Gun Storage Map to find a local business or law enforcement agency that provides options for temporary, voluntary firearm storage.

Extreme Risk Protection Orders

An Extreme Risk Protection Order is a tool  to temporarily get guns out of the hands of individuals who pose an immediate risk to themselves or others. That’s it. It’s a common sense tool that prevents suicide and protects Colorado from acts of violence.
