DENVER (AP) -- Colorado gun-control activists are protesting Starbucks' policy not to ban customers carrying weapons.

Colorado Ceasefire says Starbucks Corp. should change its policy of letting customers carry guns where it's legal. The coffee chain has said it does want to be put in the middle of a gun-control debate.

After a picket Sunday at a Denver Starbucks store, two Colorado state senators want to promote gun-control bills pending in the state Legislature.

Democratic Sens. Joe Rice of Littleton and Betty Boyd of Lakewood say their bill would enhance screening of potential gun owners.
