Colorado Legislators Propose to Ban Shotguns
Modern sporting shotguns in crosshairs of new legislation.

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.
