The Colorado Senate voted today on HB 1224, where it passed by a vote of 18-17. There were two Democratic Senators, Cheri Jahn of Wheat Ridge and Lois Tochtrop of Thornton,Â who did the right thing and voted against the bill.
Sad day for Colorado. Interestingly, the bill was amended in the Senate, so it now heads back to the House for another vote. The amendment changed the wording around the ban on shotgun capacity, which now bans any shotgun magazines that hold more than 28 inches of shotgun shells.
Since the bill should once again pass in the House, it looks like Colorado’s only hope is that GovernorÂ John Hickenlooper doesn’t sign the bill. However, that seems like a long shot right now, as he has already indicated that he will sign the bill as soon as it hits his desk.
