Colorado Democrats have put forth a bill that not only targets "assault weapons" but some of the most popular shotguns for hunting as well.
According to Colorado state senator Greg Brophy (R), the ban Democrats want to place in front of Gov. John Hickenlooper would necessarily include shotguns with magazines which are easily extendable to hold more than 8 rounds.
The Democrats arbitrarily set eight rounds as the magic number--any more would be illegal.
If the bill passes the state senate and Gov. Hickenlooper signs it into law, Brophy said it could essentially mean that Coloradans "might not be able to purchase a pump shotgun or a semi-automatic shotgun again."
