My guess is there are some really pissed off people in Colorado

Posted by   + Show Post


DENVER (CBS4) – A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol.

A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign.

“They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd.

Brophy says if Democrats succeed in passing a bill limiting large capacity magazines in Colorado, they’ll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting.

“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,” he said.

Brophy points to a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one capable of accepting or — that can be readily converted — to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.

“This is where shotgun shells go inside this tube here,” Brophy showed Boyd, “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.”

Under the 1994 federal ban manufacturers redesigned the gun so the barrel couldn’t be extended. Brophy says it’s unlikely they’d do the same just for Colorado.

“I don’t know if anybody is going to make guns specifically for the five million people living in Colorado,” he said. “We just might not be able to legally purchase a pump shotgun or a semi-automatic shotgun.”

Or sell, transfer or even lend one.

“The law is specific as of July 1. You can keep it, but only if you maintain continuous possession of it,” Brophy said. “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 Gov. Hickenlooper says he’s going to sign … this is most extreme thing anybody’s ever done related to firearms.”

Boyd asked Senate Democrats about Brophy’s concerns. They sent her a statement saying an amendment dealing with thats issue is currently being drafted and will be presented in a committee hearing Monday. What that amendment looks like and whether it passes remains to be seen.

Seven gun bills are up for hearings in the Senate on Monday.

That would be relevent if I had ever shot someone lol.


Quoting lga1965:

 Awww,poor baby. Then you won't be able to shoot dozens of people without having to reload at all,right? Sad....

Quoting soonergirl980:


Actually all these bans on magazines and guns is "coming to get our guns" outlawing them is taking them away.

Quoting lga1965:

 It will be fine. There are more important things in life,and this isn't one of them. And, may I repeat....they're NOT coming to get all your guns and you will still be able to sell them suckers too.

Quoting Carpy:

You are sure of that.  That's good coming from someone who knows nothing about hunting.  Not to mention the shotgun is the weapon of choice Biden suggests for shooting through closed doors.

Quoting lga1965:

 I am sure that there are many types of hunting rifles that will work just as well for those avid hunters.

and yes, in the article, they used "could" , it's not a sure thing. Relax ,lady gunsters, huntresses and dealers.

Now are they just outlawing the magazine or the gun? There is a difference. In SC, you can't hunt with a large magazine, woe unto you if dnr catches you with seven shells loaded. I don't remember if the legal limit is five including the chamber but you have to have a device in the magazine to reduce capacity or trouble ensues.
This was always seen as less about controlling guns and more about keeping small numbers of people from coming in and taking out entire flocks of birds so no one gets to hunt at all in a few years. It just made sense if you want to enjoy it tomorrow.

Haha, ok honey. Thanks for the intelligent response :)

Quoting lga1965:

 No, you're a tin foil hatter because you think "they are coming for your guns" and "taking away our rights". Those fears are pure tin foil hat thinking.

booga booga booga....

Quoting fireangel5:


I don't know you so I sould have no idea, but there is something I'm sure that means something to you. It doesn't have to be a vice like drinking or smoking. Since you know nothing about hunting, how do you know that just any old gun is the right one for the job they are looking to do? 

That's kind of like saying you can pick up any old pair of glasses, any perscription and it should be A-OK. After all, glasses are glasses right?

Tin Foil hat because I disagree with you? Yes, that's logical. 

Quoting lga1965:

 They are considering ONE type of hunting rifle possibly being banned. NOT all hunting rifles. Calm down. What do you suppose they could ban that would bother me? LOL. I don't buy guns. I don't take drugs. I could survive without booze. I don't smoke. Any other ideas of something that would make me "change my tune" ?Just curious ,since you brought it up....

I suspect you wear a tinfoil hat. :-)

Quoting fireangel5:


It actually sounds like they are coming for guns. Banning hunting rifles?  It may not be important to YOU but one of these days, something that is, will be threatened. You'll change your tune then. 

Quoting lga1965:

 It will be fine. There are more important things in life,and this isn't one of them. And, may I repeat....they're NOT coming to get all your guns and you will still be able to sell them suckers too.

Wow so all gun owners are mass muderers? Way to reach there Iga. Keep talking, you're making my night :)


Soonergirl1980, apparently whether you realize it or not, we have a gun, therefore we must be mass murderers. Because, well that's logical right? Iga has a computer, therefore she must be a hacker. Because hackers use computers to do their criminal acts right?

Sustainability....something good hunters understand, practice, and support.
