(The Center Square) – A bill introduced by House Democrats would ban the manufacturing, purchasing or selling of so-called assault weapons in Colorado.

House Bill 24-1292, titled “Prohibit Certain Weapons Used in Mass Shootings,” was introduced Tuesday by Denver Democratic Reps. Elisabeth Epps and Tim Hernández, and co-sponsored by 14 other House Democrats. The bill currently doesn’t have any sponsors in the Senate.

“Consistently, the deadliest mass shooting incidents in the United States involved the use of assault weapons or high-capacity magazines,” the bill says. “Such instruments have no place in a civilized society.”

The bill defines assault weapons as .50 caliber rifles, semi-automatic rifles or pistols that have detachable magazines or can be modified to include one, and semi-automatic rifles or pistols with fixed, large-capacity magazines. It lists dozens of AK, AR and Thompson models.

HB 24-1292, which exempts members of the military and law enforcement, would also ban “rapid-fire trigger activators,” as well as levy fines of $250,000 for initial violations and $500,000 for violations after that.

Epps introduced a similar bill last session, but it failed to make it through the House Judiciary Committee.

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, a pro-gun rights advocacy group, is circulating a petition opposing the legislation.

“I am confident we can defeat this authoritarian policy with your help, but it will take all hands on deck,” RMGO Executive Director Taylor Rhodes said.

Democrats in the legislature have also introduced bills to create stricter concealed handgun training requirements, require merchant category codes for firearm and ammunition purchases, and require gun owners to get liability insurance.
