    Not if this passes in Colorado. You can have what you have until it breaks. Can't get it fixed by someone else.

    A bill making its way through the Colorado state Capitol could outlaw the best-selling hunting shotgun in the state.

    “They’re coming after the standard shotgun,†Republican state Sen. Greg Brophy told KCNC-TV.

    The bill, aimed at banning high-capacity ammunition, has already passed the House and has support from Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper. If it’s signed into law, it will also seriously limit shotguns used by most hunters in the state, according to the station.

    “Hundreds of thousands of pheasant hunters are probably going to be carrying around a gun they won’t be able to replace after July 1 this year,†Brophy told KCNC.

    In a state that’s seen two of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history — Aurora and Columbine — Brophy said there’s a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one that can hold or be converted to hold more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.

    “This is where shotgun shells go inside this tube here,†Brophy demonstrated. “You can screw this part off the top and screw on an extender to this tube to allow it to hold more than eight rounds. It is readily convertible, which by definition in the bill, makes the whole thing a high-capacity magazine…we just might not be able to legally purchase a pump shotgun or a semi-automatic shotgun.â€

    Colorado has several gun bills pending in the state. According to the Denver Post, Vice President Joe Biden called some Democratic lawmakers in the midst of the debate last month and said it would “send a strong message to the rest of the country that a Western state had passed gun-control bills.â€

    “The law is specific as of July 1. You can keep it, but only if you maintain continuous possession of it,†Brophy told KCNC. “If it breaks, you can’t give to a gunsmith even to fix it. You can’t hand it to your son to use. It’s all now outlawed because of this 1224, the bill that Governor Hickenlooper says he’s going to sign…this is most extreme thing anybody’s ever done related to firearms.â€

    Democratic lawmakers told the station they are currently working on an amendment to address the issue, to be presented in a committee hearing Monday.
     
  2. Does anybody but me wonder why in the hell all of the completely stupid ideas even come up before the state legislatures and actually get serious media play?

    Does anyone ever ask these people what they're trying to do and where they get their "facts"??

    Why do people who know nothing about guns and the shooting culture still have the power to make laws doing nothing but aggravate honest citizens?

    What act of God makes a senator an expert on anything except taking other people's money and shoveling it out faster than it comes in.

    Just sickening and the media never questions any of it.

    :flag:Todays mainstream media as well as several congressmen, are owned lock-stock-and barrel (no pun intended) by the obamanation, who in return is owned by george soros. gs is the worlds largest gun/banner. He would be your king if the one world govt. comes to fruition.:evil:
     
  4. It is truly astonishing that these elected officials don't realize and understand the economic effect that shooter and hunters have during different seasons of the year.
    I know and have seen what Ohio experiences during just deer season because of all the out of county and out of state hunters migrating to their favorite place to take that buck.
    In the 5 county area around where I live, one of them is always the top county for deer taken and the 5 are always in the top 10 in the state for deer taken.
    Once the economic impact is felt and the state realizes that they are just costing themselves revenue they may look a little differently on this matter.
    While in realty they should be held accountable for their unconstitutional act for infringing on the second amendment.

    I like my big mags... that said, the banners don't even really care what they get as long as they ban something.

    their logic/arguments hold no water. a well trained person can change a mag fast and be back on target. that same person will take down a hostile tango fast and do it with very few rounds. (or a bunch of kids in a school, if we have a crazy tango.)

    Just Look at this guy:

    The way to keep kids safe in schools is to arm/train teachers & put guards in the schools... and then arm/train the general population, there WILL be a deterrent effect on crime/violence.

    the anti-gun folks want to ban anything, cause it is the first step toward banning everything. they want to chip away at the general population's ability to defend themselves so they can move forward with plans to seize guns.

    These anti-gun people are going to cause a civil war over this BS.
