WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party of Colorado supports the rights of individuals to engage in contractual agreements of their own free will, including real estate rental contracts;

03/13/17   The Libertarian Party of Colorado condemns the unjust detention of libertarian activists Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velasquez by agents of the Castro regime in Cuba on February 2, and demands the immediate safe release of these political prisoners who were targeted for their peaceful activism promoting limited government and free markets. We further ask the U.S. government's State Department to place diplomatic pressure on the Castro regime for their release, and encourage Libertarian Party members and supporters to contact their elected officials toward that end.
08/08/16   WHEREAS, Libertarians affirm that self-defense is an inherent human right;
WHEREAS, the Platforms of the National Libertarian Party and the Libertarian Party of Colorado oppose all laws at any level of government restricting, registering, or monitoring the ownership, manufacture, or transfer of firearms or ammunition;
WHEREAS, the Platforms of the National Party and the Libertarian Party of Colorado affirm the right of due process and deny the legitimacy of “victimless crimes”;
WHEREAS, the government has steadily encroached upon these rights by illegitimately regulating and restricting access for firearms and ammunition and may further seek to deprive people who have been convicted of no crime of their inherent right to full self-defense by denying their civil and inherent rights to obtain firearms and ammunition;
BE IT RESOLVED that the Libertarian Party of Colorado opposes any policy which would deny access to any firearms or ammunition to any person simply for being placed on any government watch or no-fly list and reaffirms its call to repeal and oppose any existing or proposed firearm and ammunition regulations.
