Colorado Democrats, facing electoral recalls and tourism boycotts, have a response for those outraged by their ambitious gun control agenda: more gun bills.
Colorado Gov. John W. Hickenlooper has positioned himself as a problem-solver who steers clear of extremes, but sitting on his desk are three gun control bills that threaten to redefine his image and even his political future.
The Colorado House approved four gun-control bills Monday after lobbying by the White House and in spite of warnings that they would drive firearms and ammunition manufacturers out of the state.
"That's really what this bill is about: It's gun confiscation. That's the difference between this and what we have in current law," Republican state Rep. Lori Saine said during Friday's floor debate.
"This is how easy it is to turn the average citizen, the average woman, into a criminal," said Republican state Rep. Lori Saine. "And folks, that's wrong. This is unenforceable."
