Local Motion: A Conversation About Guns, Part 1

Mar 14, 2018
Kori Stanton

A local gun control activist,  gun enthusiast, school official, parents and a Columbine survivor weigh in on the issue of gun control, gun safety and school security. 

With two deadly mass shootings in California and Colorado in the past week, this country is again in a fierce debate over gun control.

After the massacre in San Bernardino, President Obama encouraged states to take the lead on preventing gun violence. Both California and Colorado have responded to mass shootings recently by passing tougher gun laws.

Patrick Neville was a 15-year-old sophomore at Columbine High School in 1999. He was on his way to a fast food lunch when the shooting started.

Two students, armed with guns and pipe bombs, had stormed the Colorado school, on their way to killing one teacher and 12 students — some were Neville's friends.

Neville, now a Colorado state representative, says many of Columbine's teachers and faculty acted heroically that day.

But, he says, "I truly believe that had some of them had the legal authority to be armed, more of my friends might be with me today."

Colorado Democrats Strike Down Background Check Repeal

The gun debate that riveted the state capitol in 2013, once again took center stage Monday. Fewer people came to the capitol to testify on a key gun bill than the last round, but emotions were still strong.

Following Arapahoe, Lawmakers Reflect On Gun Laws

Dec 19, 2013

Once again, Colorado lawmakers are heading into a legislative session following a school shooting.

When Colorado lawmakers return in January, the makeup of the state Senate will be different. Coming off a tumultuous off session with two first-ever recalls and a resignation can do that. The state’s Democrats now have a new Senate President and only a one-seat hold on the majority.

Another Colorado Lawmaker Targeted For Recall

Oct 10, 2013

Two new Colorado gun regulations went into effect July 1st, a response from lawmakers to last year's mass shootings at an Aurora movie theater and Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

Gov Signs Gun Bills, Opponents Vow Political Revenge

Mar 21, 2013

Governor John Hickenlooper signed a trio of gun control bills on Wednesday, just hours after news broke that Colorado’s top corrections officer had been gunned down in his home. While the moment was overshadowed by the news of Tom Clements death, gun rights groups say they will use the gun legislation as part of a campaign to try and remove Democrats from power. Bente Birkeland reports from the capitol.
