7 Gun-Related Measures Considered In Colorado

DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Senate is considering seven gun-related measures from Democrats on Friday. A look at the bills and what they do:

— BACKGROUND CHECKS: House Bill 1229 would add a background-check requirement for many guns sold in private transactions.

— MAGAZINE LIMITS: House Bill 1224 limits gun ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.

— FIREARM BAN FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OFFENDERS: Senate Bill 197 would expand a ban on gun ownership for people convicted of certain domestic-violence offenses. The Senate gave the bill initial approval on an unrecorded voice vote Friday.
