Like many Sheriffs throughout the country, El Paso County Sheriff is taking a stand against the proposed Colorado gun bills that are suppose to take effect later this year. One of the bills would limit magazine capacities to 15 rounds. To which Sheriff Maketa says he would ignore the ban and its enforcement. More details can be found at 9News.
The news was an outcome of a two-hour town meeting in Colorado Springs. It's nice to see that at least some elected officials have common sense and are in touch with their constituents. We will see if other Sheriffs are on board.
The Colorado governor is expected to sign the magazine capacity bill into law later this month. Folks that already own magazines that hold more than 15 rounds are grandfathered-in. Manufacturers like Colorado-based MAGPUL will now have to date their magazines much like they did when the Federal AWB went into effect back in 1994. I guess I'll have to buy my magazines out of state!
