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.

— GUN LIABILITY: Senate Bill 196 adds legal liability for gun sellers and owners.

— GUNS ON CAMPUS: House Bill 1226 would end Colorado’s unusual law barring public college campuses from banning concealed weapons.

— ONLINE GUN TRAINING: Senate Bill 195 would require people seeking concealed carry permits to take gun training courses in person. The Senate gave the bill initial approval on an unrecorded voice vote Friday.

— BACKGROUND CHECK FEES: House Bill 1228 would revive fees for gun purchasers who need background checks.
