This does not necessarily mean that local jurisdictions will pass local firearms laws, but they could. And some certainly will (think Boulder for one pretty safe example).
My wife and I ride the motorcycle to Colorado every couple of years for summer vacation. Of course, we go legally armed. If this new law does come to pass, I'm pretty sure that we would decide that it would not be worth the effort before our trip to check every single town and/or county that we would travel through to verify we would be legal under their local gun laws. And that doesn't even account for going through or to places that we might not have planned to go through.
So right now, I'm thinking Colorado will be scratched off my list. Too bad. It is a beautiful state with some great motorcycle roads.

The Democratic-led Colorado legislature on Thursday passed Senate Bill 256, which would repeal a state law prohibiting a local government from imposing bans on the sale, purchase or possession of a firearm. The bill would allow a local government to enact ordinances or regulations banning a firearm so long as it's "not less restrictive" than state laws.
In April, [Governor] Polis signed two bills into law tightening gun regulations -- one that requires gun owners to report their lost or stolen firearms within five days and another that mandates owners to "responsibly and securely" store their firearms when not in use, to prevent juveniles and other unauthorized users from accessing them.
