Colorado GOP Lawmakers Introduce Gun Legislation

Would force business owners to allow people with concealed-carry permits onto their property or provide extra security

|

The latest gun bill from Republican lawmakers would require business owners to allow concealed-carry permit holders to pack heat or else provide one security officer for every 50 customers and face increased liability.

Sen. Kent Lambert of Colorado Springs said his bill, expected to be introduced Wednesday, is aimed at public-access private property, such as a mall. He mentioned the shooting inside an Aurora movie theater in July where 12 people died and 70 were injured.
