The head of the National Rifle Association is in Denver to meet with Colorado officials about gun control.

David Keene is meeting with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Senate President John Morse, both Democrats. Hickenlooper favors expanded background checks. Morse has proposed a new liability law to make weapons producers legally liable for damage caused by their guns.

Colorado Republicans say expanding background checks to private purchases would require a full registry of gun owners. They say the gun-liability measure would effectively eliminate certain weapons from being sold. Keene is also likely to meet with legislative Republicans Thursday.

Keene has said the NRA is "generally supportive" of stronger background checks. Keene says more attention is needed on mental health, which is also subject of the Colorado Democrats' gun proposals.
