Looks like Vice President Biden’s double-barreled shotgun might be the future for Colorado hunters. CBS reports:

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

Most hunters use pump, or semi-automatic, shotguns. With an extended tube, many hunting shotguns can hold more than the proposed maximum of eight shells.

After the Clinton gun ban in 1994, manufacturers redesigned shotguns to eliminate extensions. The problem here is that it’s unlikely gun companies will endure the expensive retooling process in order to satisfy one state’s regulations. In this manner, shotgun sales in Colorado may be greatly curtailed.

The next time a gun banner tells you “we’re not taking guns away from anybody,” ask them if that includes Colorado.

Gun control means victim disarmament.

Former civilian disarmament supporter and medical researcher Howard Nemerov investigates the civil liberty of self-defense and examines the issue of gun control, resulting in his book Four Hundred Years of Gun Control: Why Isn’t It Working? He appears frequently on NRA News as their “unofficial” analyst and was published in the Texas Review of Law and Politics with David Kopel and Carlisle Moody.
