While last yearâ€™s Democratic package of gun control proposals changed the tenor and tone of the entire legislative session, one bill in particular â€“the ban on magazines of more than 15 rounds â€” did more to galvanize gun owners and erode civility and bipartisanship beneath the dome than the others.

…the billâ€™s sponsor, Rep. Chris Holbert, R-Parker, told FOX31 Denver Sunday that at least half of the lawmakers at the Capitol, including a handful of Democrats, support his repeal try.
â€śIâ€™m confident we have 50 lawmakers whoâ€™d vote yes,â€ť Holbert said, noting that his bill has 45 co-sponsors, including Sen. Lois Tochtrop, D-Thornton.
With the recall elections trimming the Democratsâ€™ senate majority to a razor-thin 18-17 margin, and two of those Democrats having voted against the magazine ban last year, Holbert knows his bill could pass the full Senate â€” if it can escape the House.
Keep calling and emailing your representatives.
