Colorado House Passes Four Gun Control Bills
After hours of debate yesterday, the Democrat- controlled House in Colorado passed four gun control bills on a voice vote:
- House Bill 1224: Limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.
- House Bill 1229: Requires universal background checks for gun sales or transfers.
- House Bill 1228: Requires gun customers to pay the costs of their criminal background checks by the Bureau of Investigation.
- House Bill 1226: Outlaws concealed-carry permit holders to pack heat in campus buildings.
The official vote will be Monday. The bills then move to the Senate. [More...]
A year ago, Republicans held a 33-32 majority in the House, but after the November election Democrats are back in charge, 37-28.
The Dems have a 20-15 majority in the Senate, and Gov. Hickenlooper has said he'll sign at least 3 of the bills. He is still studying the issue of concealed carry on campuses.
