Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) to Sign 3 Gun Control Bills Into Law on Wednesday

by Colonel on March 18, 2013

“Colorado’s governor will sign three gun control bills into law on Wednesday, including one banning ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds in a state that has experienced two of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.

The measures that Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper will sign also include a bill requiring universal background checks for gun buyers, and another that requires gun buyers to pay for their own background checks, said the governor’s spokesman, Eric Brown.

The bills passed both chambers of the Colorado state legislature last week as part of a package of gun control legislation that followed months of heated discussion and pushed Colorado to the forefront of a national gun control debate.

The state Senate has also approved legislation banning online certification for concealed-carry permits, but the measure was still pending in the state House.
