    Gov. John Hickenlooper To Sign Gun Control Measures Wednesday

    Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper will sign gun control measures Wednesday that pose limits on ammunition magazines and expand background checks for firearms. A state government employee with knowledge of the situation confirmed the details to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement has not been made.


    Colorado's gun debate has been carefully watched because it's a politically moderate state with a gun-loving frontier history. The new laws would be the first significant gun controls approved this year outside the East Coast.
    Republicans reviled both bills and argued the proposals would not prevent more shootings, but hurt law-abiding citizens' exercise of their Second Amendment rights.
    The governor also was planning to sign a bill reviving user fees for gun purchasers needing background checks. Colorado charged $10 background-check fees more than a decade ago, but the fees were dropped. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation currently picks up the tab checking prospective gun owners.

    A shame.

    I am sure they will complain, but having background checks, and making the purchaser pay for them is not a terrible thing.

    I think the mag size is just a feel good law, but I can agree with the back ground check laws. It's not gonna keep criminals from getting guns if they really want one but it might keep that mentally ill person from getting one.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    if I were a fascist, I would really like the direction we are heading in as a country... all the good , common sense, laws are great for fascists.


    if i were a gun control supporter, I would be outraged that Colorado allows for 5 more bullets per magazine than California..why that's 50% more dead children per magazine!.. unacceptable!!

    besides, I think 8.675309 bullets per magazine is a much better completely arbitrary number than 15.. and Tommy Tutone agrees.

    yes!...what's better than having people proving their innocence before being allowed to exercise constitutional rights?... making them pay for it too!

    Attack you? No.

    I do think the laws in question are of somewhat dubious Constitutionality, and that their net effect on crime or massacres will be close enough to zero as to be meaningless... but I have no interest in attacking you personally. Just in disagreeing with you.

    Well, I don't oppose background checks. That's pretty much a no-brainer from my standpoint. Those who are knowledgeable about guns say that limiting the size of magazines doesn't really effect the fire power of a skilled individual; so I'd imagine there's probably millions of those people on the right you mention who are laughing their asses off.
