DENVER, Colo. (AP) The Republican leader in the Colorado House says his party will try to overturn or change the gun restrictions Democrats passed earlier this year.

Rep. Brian DelGrosso said Friday Republicans plan to introduce a bill to repeal the 15-round limit on ammunition magazines during the session that begins next month. He says Republicans will likely also revisit expanded background checks, but did not provide specifics on possible legislation.

The restrictions that took effect July 1st led to the recall ouster of two Democratic state senators.

Republicans will have a difficult time overturning the laws, though. Democrats control the House by a wide margin and have a one-vote lead in the Senate.

Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper has said he doesn't want any of the gun laws repealed.
