State Senator Greg Brophy is endorsing former Rep. Bob Beauprez as the Republican party's best potential challenger to Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Gun giveaways are gaining steam among Republican candidates across the country and Colorado state Sen. Greg Brophy was no exception earlier this month when he was running for governor.
Republican gubernatorial hopefuls agreed on taxes, civil unions and marijuana, but they disagreed on the woes of the state GOP in their first debate Tuesday.
It's a stark fact that is fueling an already intense debate about gun rights in this state: It was an armed deputy who stopped the Arapahoe High School gunman last week from unleashing a deadly massacre, not the expansive new gun control laws approved by Colorado Democrats in March in reaction to two mass shootings.
Another Colorado Democrat has stoked the state's raging gun-control debate by challenging the argument that guns are needed for self-defense.
A national boycott movement is aimed at Colorado's $1.8 billion hunting industry, launched by gun rights supporters last week after Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law three gun control bills.
One of Colorado's most popular standard shotguns would be banned under a bill making its way through the state Capitol.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. | A widely used hunting shotgun would be banned under a package of gun-control bills sponsored by Democrats sailing through the Colorado General Assembly, according to state Republicans.
“A majority of people oppose this no matter, but once the emotion is gone, even more people are opposed to it,” said Mr. Brophy.
