Judiciary approves assault weapons ban
Politico
The Senate Judiciary Committee has approved a hugely controversial ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips, but the measure faces nearly certain defeat on the Senate floor. The proposal, authored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., bans 157 different models of assault weapons, as well as magazines containing more than 10 bullets. The vote was 10 to 8, with all Democrats supporting it and all Republicans opposed.

Schumer's 'background check' bill criminalizes most gun loans and registers firearms
Reason
J.D. Tuccille, a contributor for Reason, writes: "When I go shooting with friends, we head out into the desert and inevitably we admire each other's firearms and swap'em for a try to compare their accuracy, feel and overall abilities. That makes us criminals under the "background check" bill currently under consideration in the U.S. Senate. Sen. Charles Schumer, who proposed the measure, has packed his legislation full of legal snares virtually guaranteed to turn gun owners into lawbreakers. That's an impressive little sleight of hand for legislation considered to be the only sort of gun control with a chance to make it through Congress."

Colorado high-capacity mag ban might ban almost all mags
Hot Air
Colorado’s now nationally famous “high capacity” magazine ban could end up being much more widespread than anticipated according to lawmakers. During a late night debate in the Colorado Senate on Friday, Senator Kevin Lundberg, D-Berthoud, put forth the thesis that because the proposed ban includes magazines with more than 15 rounds, AND those which are “readily convertible” even those manufactured for smaller numbers are most likely to fall under the ban. Most magazines are designed to be pulled apart and cleaned and are therefore readily converted to a capacity above the proposed law.

Colorado stands to lose its status as a premier hunting and sports-shooting destination if the governor signs gun-control bills now rolling through the state legislature, according to an executive producer for the Outdoor Channel. Michael Bane, an executive producer for four hunting-related shows, said in a letter that the Outdoor Channel will move its production out of Colorado if the bills become law. Other hunting shows, organizations and clubs are also expected to avoid the state, he said.
