Gun magazine swap at Colorado State Capitol to protest new gun laws limiting ammunition magazines

DENVER - Gun rights advocates held an ammunition magazine swap at the state Capitol in Denver on Monday to defy a new state law.

During the "Magazine Swap at the Capitol," activists urged people from Colorado and surrounding areas to buy, sell and swap magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.

New laws limiting ammunition magazine to 15 rounds and creating universal background check requirements went into effect Monday in Colorado.

More than 50 people attended the protest event at the Capitol with many passing ammunition magazines around a circle of people.
