Gun control tough topic for Colo. lawmakers

DENVER — Gun control is expected to be a heated topic at the Colorado Legislature in the coming months, and legislative leaders have indicated that it will be difficult to find common ground.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said this week that “the time is right” to debate gun control legislation.

Lawmakers weighed in on the topic today, the day of a massacre a Connecticut elementary school.

Democratic Senate President John Morse says it’s possible that his party will introduce legislation to ban assault weapons and that lawmakers need to balance people’s right to own guns with public safety. Republicans Senate Leader Bill Cadman says his caucus’ position on gun control hasn’t changed.
