DENVER (AP) — A Colorado Democrat who wanted to prevent individuals suspected of posing a threat from possessing a gun quickly backed off that plan after details of the proposal became public.
Rep. Beth McCann says she's still working on a bill dealing with firearm restrictions for people believed to be a danger, but it's unclear when it could be introduced or what it would look like.
A draft of McCann's original proposal would allow psychologists, nurses and counselors to enter a person into the national background check system, prohibiting that individual from legally possessing a firearm for a year.
The NRA immediately called it the "most unconstitutional" legislation of the session.
