DENVER (CBS4)– U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) focused on gun violence in Denver on Thursday. This comes ahead of her return to Washington D.C. where her bill to ban high-capacity gun magazines will be discussed by the House.
The Democrat met with a group of Coloradans and gun-safety advocates in Denver to discuss the issue. DeGette introduced legislation earlier this year to reinstate a nationwide ban on high-capacity gun magazines.
The House Judiciary committee is preparing to take up DeGette’s bill as part of a series of gun-safety related bills in the wake of recent mass shootings in the nation.
