    A lot of us have been telling some of the anti-gun Fudds here that they are not immune to gun bans, that their guns will be next on the gun grabber's list, and that they need to support all gun owners instead of throwing them under the bus.

    The 870/1100/1187 are not the only sporting shotguns that may be affected. Any pump or semi-auto that can be readily modified to take a mag tube extender meets the definition of an assault weapon under the bill.

    The chickens have come home to roost.

    Excerpts:

    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.

    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.”

    “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.”
