Targeted: Legislators who supported gun laws

Posted By on Mon, Jul 29, 2013 at 6:15 AM

Here are two elections to watch: The NRA and supporters have set out to attempt to recall two Colorado legislators who were part of the legislative majority that passed stronger gun laws in response to the Aurora massacre.

The laws required background checks for private gun sales (parent-child transactions exempted) and also put limits on the number of rounds that can be held in ammunition clips (15).

The election is Sept. 10.
