    DENVER (AP) -- Fiercely debated ammunition limits have cleared Colorado's Democratic Legislature and are on their way to the governor, who has said he'll sign the measure into law.

    The 15-round magazine limit would make Colorado the first state outside the East Coast to ratchet back gun rights after last year's deadly shooting sprees. Colorado's gun-control debates have been closely watched because of the state's gun-loving frontier heritage and painful history of mass shootings.

    Colorado lawmakers decided to keep negotiating on a bill to expand background-check requirements to most private and online gun sales.

    The measures are part of a Democratic gun control package that has been the focus of much debate, drawing thousands to the state Capitol over the past week. The GOP has decried the whole package as a bad reaction to last year's horrific shootings in Newtown, Conn., and at a suburban Denver movie theater.

    Well the silver lining to this grey cloud is that now all the criminals will get rid of all of their magazines that hold more than 15 rounds... Becasue they won't be able to use them to commit crimes... because it will be illegal... Right?

    Absolutely right. I cant understand why the rest of the country, especially inner city gang--lands and states near the borders dont follow this example! All they need to do is pass this law everywhere, and watch the horrible gun violence crimes dissappear!
