Gun Legislation

It's a big day for gun control legislation in the Senate chambers of the Colorado General Assembly. If approved, three bills will go to the governor for signature:
HB13-1229 Requiring background checks for all gun transactions;
HB13-1228 Charging gun buyers a fee for background checks; and
HB13-1224 Limits gun magazines to 15 rounds.

Two other bills under discussion are SB 13-197 preventing people who have committed domestic violence from possessing firearms; and SB13-195 concerning training requirements for concealed handgun permits. If ratified by the Senate, these bills will head to the House for approval.

You can listen in on the debates (select "Senate Chamber" on the left side of the screen) or watch the deliberations on the Colorado Channel.
