FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO

Civil Action No. 1:14-cv-02850
ROCKY MOUNTAIN GUN OWNERS, et al.,
SCOTT GESSLER, et al.,
ORDER CONCERNING MOTIONS FOR TEMPORARY
RESTRAINING ORDER AND PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION
This matter is before me on the following: (1) the Motion for Preliminary
Injunction [#23]1 filed November 7, 2014; and (2) the Motion for Temporary
Restraining Order [#33] filed December 8, 2014. Both motions were filed by the
plaintiffs. The defendants filed responses [#26 & #28] to the Motion for Preliminary
Injunction [#23], and the plaintiffs filed a reply [#35]. No response or reply has been
filed concerning the Motion for Temporary Restraining Order [#33].
Both motions address the same factual scenario and address the same points of
law. The two motions seek essentially the same relief. Having considered the motions,
the responses, and the reply, I find that there is no disputed issue of material fact at
issue in the motions. Rather, the motions present issues of law only. The parties

dispute how the applicable law applies to the undisputed facts.
A parallel proceeding is pending in the Colorado Office of Administrative Courts.
A hearing in the parallel proceeding is scheduled for Wednesday, December 17, 2014.
In their Motion for Temporary Restraining Order [#34], the plaintiffs seek an order
which, inter alia, enjoins the defendants from proceeding with the December 17, 2014,
Because the motions at issue before this court do not involve disputed issues of
material fact, I find and conclude that no hearing on the motions is necessary. I will
address and resolve the motions on the papers on or before Tuesday, December 16,
THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED as follows:
1. That the Motion for Preliminary Injunction [#23] filed November 7, 2014,
and the Motion for Temporary Restraining Order [#33] filed December 8, 2014, are
taken under advisement; and
2. That the court will issue an order addressing those two motions as soon as
practicable and on or before Tuesday, December 16, 2014.
Dated December 12, 2014, at Denver, Colorado.
