Gun buyback canceled because of new Colorado gun laws

A planned gun buyback has been canceled at the request of a Colorado sheriff who says the state’s new gun laws would make the event nearly impossible to stage.

Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle told the Boulder Daily Camera a strict law that went into effect July 1 requires buyers to go to a licensed firearms dealer and undergo a background check.

The computer systems used in the check are not portable and could not be used at the sheriff’s compound where the buyback was planned next month, according to the report.
