Popular Standard Shotgun Could Be Banned Under Proposed Bill(Denver, Co.)
CBS4 News ^ | Mar. 1, 2013 | CBS news Staff

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. 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.

“Hundreds of thousands of pheasant hunters are probably going to be carrying around a gun they won’t 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.”

The law is specific as of July 1. You can keep it, but only if you maintain continuous possession of it,” Brophy said. “If it breaks, you can’t give to a gunsmith even to fix it. You can’t hand it to your son to use. It’s all now outlawed because of this 1224, the bill that Gov. Hickenlooper says he’s going to sign … this is most extreme thing anybody’s ever done related to firearms.”

Sorry, I searched and missed it. Mods please remove this post. One time is good, two is overkill.

“A pump or a semi-automatic shotgun.......”

What am I missing, here? My 55 years of pheasant, quail, dove,
goose, and duck hunting and trap shooting experience tells me
that these are two different types of shotguns. Am I reading
this wrong?

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.
