Colorado Governor Signs Two Gun Control Measures

From 9 News and CNN - Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed two gun control measures into law nearly one month after a mass shooting occurred at a Boulder supermarket that killed a police officer and nine others.

The first measure, the Isabella Joy Thallas Act, requires gun owners to report their lost or stolen firearms within five days or be subject to fines. The second measure, House Bill 1106, requires gun owners to responsibly and securely store their firearms when not in use to prevent juveniles and other unauthorized users from accessing them.

Both measures were introduced before the March 22 mass shooting, but the tragedy added urgency for legislators to act quickly. Democrats passed both measures in the Colorado House and Senate with no Republican support.
