This Is Not Good: Colorado House Committee Approves First Round of Gun Control measures
February 13, 2013 | 7:05AM
Colorado lawmakers continued their full court press to make sweeping changes to gun laws late Tuesday night, moving a pair of contentious bills out of a house committee along strict party line votes.
The measures require background checks for every gun sale in the state and restrict ammunition magazines to those that hold no more than 15 rounds. Debate on the bills lasted for nearly 10 hours and drew a standing room only crowd of 300-400 people, most of them opposed to the proposals.
