Popular Standard Shotgun Could Be Banned Under Proposed CO Bill

RightMarch March 4, 2013

CBS4 Denver reports:

A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol.

A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign.

“They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd.

Brophy says if Democrats succeed in passing a bill limiting large capacity magazines in Colorado, they’ll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting.

“Hundreds of thousands of pheasant hunters are probably going to be carrying around a gun they won’t be able to replace after July 1 this year,” he said.

Brophy points to a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one capable of accepting or — that can be readily converted — to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.

“This is where shotgun shells go inside this tube here,” Brophy showed Boyd, “You can screw this part off the top and screw on an extender to this tube to allow it to hold more than eight rounds. It is readily convertible, which by definition in the bill, makes the whole thing a high-capacity magazine.”

Under the 1994 federal ban manufacturers redesigned the gun so the barrel couldn’t be extended. Brophy says it’s unlikely they’d do the same just for Colorado.

“I don’t know if anybody is going to make guns specifically for the five million people living in Colorado,” he said. “We just might not be able to legally purchase a pump shotgun or a semi-automatic shotgun.”

Or sell, transfer or even lend one.

“The law is specific as of July 1. You can keep it, but only if you maintain continuous possession of it,” Brophy said. “If it breaks, you can’t give to a gunsmith even to fix it. You can’t hand it to your son to use. It’s all now outlawed because of this 1224, the bill that Gov. Hickenlooper says he’s going to sign … this is most extreme thing anybody’s ever done related to firearms.”

Boyd asked Senate Democrats about Brophy’s concerns. They sent her a statement saying an amendment dealing with thats issue is currently being drafted and will be presented in a committee hearing Monday. What that amendment looks like and whether it passes remains to be seen.

Seven gun bills are up for hearings in the Senate on Monday.

  1. We need to vote out anyone who tries to limit/eliminate our 2nd Amendment rights. I let my Republican state senator (NY), who I voted for, know that I would not be voting for him in the next election since he voted for the unconstitutional ‘NY Safe act’.

  2. the actions proposed by the state legislature of Colorado are illegal and criminal in their action and intent. These actions are a deliberate violation of the rights of the people and show the totalitarian communist intent of the current administration .

  3. Well, did U happen to catch Biden’s idiotic Video that Woman can’t aim a AR-15, so U should get a double Barreled Shotgun. Load two shells an blast away into the air, and everything will be OK!
    The Bad Guys will run and hid in terror! Or, so the Demoncrats think! It is rather hard to increase the rounds a double can hold, the best U can do is hold 2 in your fingers and fire the 2 in the gun, then reload, shouldn’t take longer than 30 sec if you are familiar with the gun, in a well lit area, and you are not stressed! By that time the bad guys forgot about the air blast and start blasting away themselves, of course with a non-legal firearms (holding lots more the 2 rounds), obtained anyway they can get one; steal, buy on the street (stolen of course), or taken from a dead person they just killed. Funny, the administration don’t mention any of these possible methods of getting a gun, other than the Gun-Show-Loop-Hole Bull. Oh, I forgot one other way, from the government – remember Fast n Furious? I could go on and on, the administration is so inane that every way they turn they screw up something that wasn’t broke!
