DENVER – Stores across Colorado are pulling high-capacity magazines off their shelves. A new law that took effect Monday limits magazines to 15 rounds and some people are already deliberately breaking the law.
The law requires background checks on all gun sales, including private ones.
“We want to, today, to test how this law functions; demonstrate that it is not enforceable,” a demonstrator told the crowd.
The new laws prompted about two dozen opponents of increased gun control to gather at the state Capitol on Monday at midday in protest. Many swapped and sold high-capacity magazines in plain view of police officers, daring them to make an arrest.
“Well, we just broke that law, I’ve got to assume, several times in just a minute,” rally organizer Ryan Tulega said.
