A brief diary to share GREAT news! The CO House has just passed four bills limiting guns.

As reported several places, including the Denver Post, after a long day of debate on Friday, the CO House just moved these on to the Senate.

First, background checks on private sales and transfers of firearms (36-29).

Second, limiting gun magazines to 15 rounds (34-31).

Third, requiring gun buyers to pay for their own background checks ($5-12). This is actually the reinstatement of an extremely profitable program begun in 1994 (33-32).

And fourth, no concealed weapons on college campuses (34-31).

Now they go to the Democratically controlled Senate for votes.

I can guarantee you at least one of these bills wouldn't have passed if we hadn't just changed out our TP Rep J Paul Brown for a smart attorney, Mike McLachlan. Thank you Mike and others!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
