AP_The father of Columbine victim Daniel Mauser is urging Colorado's senators to vote against a measure that would allow people with concealed-weapons permits to take their weapons across state lines.
Tom Mauser's appeal was in a full-page ad in Wednesday's Denver
Post, paid for by a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
The ad asks Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet to vote against
the measure. It says Colorado has a stricter law than some other states and shouldn't have to honor other permits.
The senate scheduled a vote Wednesday on the measure, which South Dakota Sen. John Thune has included as an amendment to a
major defense policy bill.
Backers say truckers and others with concealed-weapons permits
should be able to protect themselves in other states.
