DENVER (CBS4) 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. Its a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill thats already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says hell sign.
Theyre 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, theyll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting.
Hundreds of thousands of pheasant hunters are probably going to be carrying around a gun they wont be able to replace after July 1 this year, he said.
Brophy points to a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one capable of accepting or that can be readily converted to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.
This is where shotgun shells go inside this tube here, Brophy showed Boyd, You can screw this part off the top and screw on an extender to this tube to allow it to hold more than eight rounds. It is readily convertible, which by definition in the bill, makes the whole thing a high-capacity magazine.

that these are two different types of shotguns. Am I reading
The law encourages owners to use potentially unsafe firearms by not taking them freely to be repaired. People will die because of this Democrat.
or that can be readily converted to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.
So a Remington 870 OR 1100 is five shots and you could extend it to 8.
