Colorado to tighten gun control with 3 new laws

After witnessing two of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, Colorado is expected to pass a series of gun control laws Wednesday.

Gov. John Hickenlooper will sign three bills into law Wednesday, his office said. The new legislation includes:

– A 15-ammunition limit on magazines;

– A universal background check for prospective gun buyers; and

– A requirement for gun purchasers to pay for their own background checks

    Guns should have similar control as a car! I'm not hearing opposition to vehicle laws! Seems we're happy about those!!

    Magpol Incorporated employs several hundred Colorado citizens and has over $85 million a year in revenue- the suppliers to them are mostly located in Colorado and have even more Colorado employees..... Magpol will leave the state as soon as this law is passed since they make high capacity magazines for the modern sporting rifles/pistols today.
    There are an estimated 300,000,000 high cap mags (clips to the ignorant) in circulation today and about 50,000,000 on back order.
    Good work Colorado !

    The new law is that you can't smoke pot out of guns. The resin gums them up.

    Does Universal Background Check mean that they will find my record for despotism on Neptune?

    CONGRATULATIONS !!!! to Colorado....for it's politicians finding the courage to stand up against the bully on the political play ground, the NRA. Common sense laws gun laws crucial if we are to bring our children into a "civilized" society. As to who should pay for background checks.... well we who choose to drive a car, pay for a drivers license and plates for those cars... so why shouldn't the gun purchaser pay for the back ground checks necessary to own and operate a gun?
