It was a victory for the state chapter of the National Rifle Association, called the Colorado State Shooting Association. The group said the bill could prevent gun owners from protecting themselves. The bill lost because one Democrat had an emergency and missed the vote Thursday in the House Judiciary Committee. Rep. Suzanne Williams,... (GunPolicy.org)

Bill Owens' package of gun-control proposals that is making its way through the Colorado Legislature. Many of the protesters said Owens has changed his position on gun rights since the Columbine High School shootings. "Most of the people here are Republicans. Most of the people here supported...

The attack happened last month on a highway 60 miles northeast of Frankfurt after the policeman used a radar gun to... (GunPolicy.org)
