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

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.

Saw that questionaire... BTW... If I actually shoot someone through my door.... And they haul my ass to court because that is ILLEGAL as hell... Will the excuse Biden approved it clear my charges?



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.

If you need a semi-automatic rifle to hunt, you need to stay home.

A pothead killed a NYC cop a little over a year ago, so anything is possible.

 How about a hunting rifle?

Name some...I am uninformed, as I have been told. :-)

Not that I feel the need to be informed about all weapons. LOL>

I'm pissed because this  is so stupid not a thing they are doing with these gun laws will ever stop gun valiance.

And as you know they are going to try to take away all our weapons, They did this in Australia and their valiance is high and now they are experiencing home invasions something they never had with their guns.

The problem are not the guns, the problem are the criminals and mentally sick.

Booms kill at lot of people and that is something you can make at home.
