Never trust a fascist. The gun banning fanatics in Colorado’s state house have rammed through a bill worded in such a away that your average tube-fed pump shotguns such as the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 will be affected by the ban:
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 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.”
Any shotgun with a screwed on magazine cap violates the ban as written. Democrats push for bans beyond their stated goals with every law they aim at taking down the Second Amendment. Colorado needs to put Governor Hickenlooper on notice that they are aware of Democratic tricks, and he needs to veto this bill.
