Brophy hits Tancredo for post-Columbine gun control vote
DENVER -- Fighting to gain traction in the GOP's gubernatorial primary field, state Sen. Greg Brophy is taking aim at the current front-runner, Tom Tancredo, over the former congressman's record on gun control. Brophy attacked Tancredo Monday over a 1999 vote by the former congressman who supported legislation to restrict the sale, transfer, importation and possession of assault rifles and magazines with higher than a 10-round capacity, a measure that is, at least generally, comparable to the ban approved by Colorado Democrats last year that outlaws magazines of more than 15 rounds.
