Colo. GOP attempts repeal of ammo magazine limits

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- Gun-rights advocates who want to see a repeal of Colorado's limits on the size of ammunition magazines realize their chances are slim when they go before Democrat-controlled committees next week.

But Republican Rep. Chris Holbert, who is sponsoring one repeal measure, says the goal is give people an opportunity to have their say. It's something that gun-rights supporters insist didn't happen last year when Democrats passed a package of gun-control laws.

One of the more contentious laws restricted the size of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.

Holbert's repeal attempt is scheduled to be heard in a House committee Monday, and a separate but identical proposal in the Senate is expected to have a committee hearing there Wednesday.

Democrats say the law is designed to limit the amount of damage mass shooters can do.
