While the Harry Reid led Democrats allowed themselves to be bullied and lifted the banning of assault rifles from gun control legislation, Governor John Hickenlooper signed three bills into law. They will limit ammunition magazines to 15 rounds, require universal background checks for gun sales and transfers, and make buyers pay for those checks.
He courageously put human life before profit. He signed the bills despite warnings the magazine limits would force Magpul, the largest producer of ammunition magazines in the state, to leave and cut hundreds of jobs.
Colorado joins New York as the second state to enact stricter gun control laws in wake of the Sandy Hook shootings.
This happened the morning after Colorado Department of Corrections Director Tom Clements was gunned down in his home.
Clements had been lured away from the Missouri Department of Corrections where he served for 31 years.
“We lured Tom away,” Hickenlooper said. “He was far and away the best choice we could find in the country. He understood the idea of building a team and operating an enterprise … His unfailing good nature would come through and everything he did.”
