DENVER (AP) - A Republican proposal to repeal an antiquated law on out-of-state rifle and shotgun purchases has been approved unanimously by the Colorado Senate.

The bill would undo a 1969 law that says Coloradans may purchase, but not take possession of, a shotgun or rifle unless they buy it in Colorado or a contiguous state.

The provision means that some out-of-state rifle purchases require a transfer to a gun dealer before the Colorado owner can take possession. The law predates federal regulation on interstate gun transfers.

A state fiscal projection said the repeal would have only a minimal effect on state sales taxes.

The proposal was approved on a unanimous unrecorded voice vote and faces one more vote before it heads to the House.
