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.
The shotgun ban would not only restrict hunters but also sportsmen, who use pump action and semi-automatic shotguns on occasion. The avid skeet-shooter President Obama would be devastated if he couldn’t shoot clay pigeons with certain shotguns in Colorado, right?
