Assault Weapons Ban

Law enforcement officials from 7 Colorado cities, including Colorado Springs, want the assault weapons ban to continue.

They're asking Senators Wayne Allard and Ben Nighthorse Campbell to vote for the ban when it comes up for a vote this week. They're also asking the senators to vote for a bill that would require a criminal background check for people who buy guns at gun shows.

The state already has a similar piece of legislation but no national law exists.
