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.
