    DENVER (CBS4) – A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol.

    A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign.

    “They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd.

    Brophy says if Democrats succeed in passing a bill limiting large capacity magazines in Colorado, they’ll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting.

    “Hundreds of thousands of pheasant hunters are probably going to be carrying around a gun they won’t be able to replace after July 1 this year,” he said.

    Brophy points to a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one capable of accepting or — that can be readily converted — to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.

    “This is where shotgun shells go inside this tube here,” Brophy showed Boyd, “You can screw this part off the top and screw on an extender to this tube to allow it to hold more than eight rounds. It is readily convertible, which by definition in the bill, makes the whole thing a high-capacity magazine.”
    Under the 1994 federal ban manufacturers redesigned the gun so the barrel couldn’t be extended. Brophy says it’s unlikely they’d do the same just for Colorado.

    “I don’t know if anybody is going to make guns specifically for the five million people living in Colorado,” he said. “We just might not be able to legally purchase a pump shotgun or a semi-automatic shotgun.”

    Or sell, transfer or even lend one.

    “The law is specific as of July 1. You can keep it, but only if you maintain continuous possession of it,” Brophy said. “If it breaks, you can’t give to a gunsmith even to fix it. You can’t hand it to your son to use. It’s all now outlawed because of this 1224, the bill that Gov. Hickenlooper says he’s going to sign … this is most extreme thing anybody’s ever done related to firearms.”

    Boyd asked Senate Democrats about Brophy’s concerns. They sent her a statement saying an amendment dealing with thats issue is currently being drafted and will be presented in a committee hearing Monday. What that amendment looks like and whether it passes remains to be seen.

    Seven gun bills are up for hearings in the Senate on Monday.

    Slippery slope 101. This is why it's so abosulutely crucial that we give not one single inch on our Constiututional Rights.

    Well no big loss on the 870s, 1100s, or 1187s. Real trapshooters use Perazzis.

    The usual nmon-gun owning anti-gun shills here aren't going to touch this one with a 30 foot stick. Doesn't fit into their agenda.

    We can't give 1/16 of an inch to these leftest liberals. Spend no money in Colorado or companies located within the state that sell in other states.

    It is irritating how the media has decided to cover every time a gun goes off, I mean I don't think they are missing anything

    Does the media understand that if the second amendment falls all of the amendments will be render useless, including their freedom of speech?

    Yah, but they don't cover the weekly shootings in Chicago, Detroit, New York, etc. that are drug related. Theft for money, black on black crime, etc, are mostly drug related. Making drugs illegal has really been successful....not.

    These cities have the strictest gun laws in the nation. Only criminals will have guns, and the guns will be continue to funnel into these cities.
