Colorado lawmakers haven’t wasted any time in their efforts to repeal Colorado’s magazine capacity limit and the state’s universal background check laws.
Republican lawmakers introduced two new bills yesterday which would repeal both of the controversial laws passed by lawmakers last year.
The laws were directly responsible for the successful recall of two Colorado lawmakers who supported the bills and resulted in the resignation of a third Democrat facing another recall.
Republicans took control of the Colorado Senate during the midterm elections while Democrats still hold a narrow lead in the General Assembly.
HB 15-1050 would repeal the state’s universal background check law which requires background checks for all gun transfers, even private ones. The state is currently facing a lawsuit over the law and Colorado sheriffs have previously described the law as unenforceable.
