Colorado moves forward on gun control story image
DENVER, Colo. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Colorado is moving ahead on more gun control measures, testing the grounds on how far the nation is willing to go.

A bill expanding background checks on private firearms purchases and a new ban on gun ownership by people facing domestic violence accusations passed Friday in the state Senate.

Colorado lawmakers are also debating limits on the size of ammunition magazines.

Supporters face powerful opposition from gun rights advocates.

Democrats who are supporting the bills do, however, hold an advantage in the Colorado Senate and can pass bills by a narrow margin.

Republicans only need three Democrats to vote no to defeat any bill.
