DENVER (AP) -- Proposals to change how people get concealed carry gun permits in Colorado and new restrictions on gun ownership for domestic-violence offenders will be up for consideration in the House.

The proposals scheduled for committee votes Thursday have already cleared the Senate.

One proposal would allow some online gun education for permit-seekers, but would require at least some portions be taught in person. Another expands a ban on gun ownership for people convicted of certain domestic-violence offenses, or who are facing protection orders. They would have to relinquish firearms and ammunition.

Other bills that have already passed, including limits on ammunition magazines, have generated more controversy.

The two bills are part of the Democrats' package of new gun legislation responding to mass shootings last year in Connecticut and suburban Denver.
