Colorado gun-control laws go in effect Monday; critics fume
By Ryan Parker
At the Firing Line gun shop in Aurora, assorted guns are marked with red tags reading: “Not for sale after June 30.”
“We can sell the gun, but we won’t be able to sell the magazine with it, so what’s the point?” store manager Richard Taylor said.
New Colorado gun-control laws inspired feverish debate among politicians, law enforcement and residents during the last legislative session, resulting in a lawsuit against the governor, threats of violence and efforts to recall lawmakers.
Some key figures in opposition to the laws said it’s unclear what happens next with Colorado firearm ownership. But what’s abundantly clear is that foes hope to highlight their opposition in grand style.
