Hot! Colorado Passes Slew of Gun Control Measures

As states rush to pass legislation either tightening gun control measures or preserving the Second Amendment right, Colorado is working to push through its own package of gun laws.

The state, hit by two of the most notorious shootings in U.S. history, has introduced several bills that have already made it through three readings in the House:

–          HB 1224, which would bans all magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.

–          HB 1226 would prohibit those with concealed carry permits, including off duty police officers and former military personnel, from bringing their weapons on college campuses.

–          HB 1228 would force residents to pay for exercising a constitutional right by making them pay for a background check to prove they are not criminals. There is no limit on the amount the Colorado Bureau of Investigation could charge for the background check.

–          HB 1229 bans the private sale and transfer of firearms and institutes universal background checks and/gun registration for all Colorado gun owners.

The package also includes a bill that would hold gun owners responsible for any crimes committed with their weapons, even if they were stolen.

Chaninat & Leeds attorneys offer US family-based immigration visas with a focus on the K1 fiancée visa and K3 marriage visa for Thai nationals.

No Republican voted in support of the bills, and Governor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, has said “he supported the magazine limits and universal background check measures but was undecided on the college campus ban.”
