Gun Regulations In Colorado Completely Fail Expectations

A year into the addition of legislation increasing background checks for the sale of firearms, data compiled by the Associated Press has shown that the legislation didn’t accomplish all that much, the Aurora Sentinal reports.

A devastating string of shootings last year lead Democratic lawmakers in Colorado to introduce gun restrictions meant to deter future tragedies, but questions have been raised about its effectiveness.

A non-partisan Colorado Legislative Council review estimated that background checks for the purpose of keeping guns away from those with a criminal past would result in 420,000 reviews over a two-year period. Instead, only 13,600 reviews have been conducted in the first year, leading to accusations of poor fiscal management in the form of a wasted $3 million dollar budget. It is not yet clear how much of the budget has gone unspent.

The figures were projected based on a 1997 report conducted by the National Institute of Justice.
