Emily Brown of Denver takes part in a rally Monday morning, June 5, 2023, at the state Capitol organized by a group called Here 4 the Kids, who seek to have Gov. Jared Polis sign an executive order to declare a state of emergency due to gun violence, and to impose “a total ban on all guns and a comprehensive, mandatory buyback program.”

As demonstrators rally against guns outside the state capitol, we take a closer look at what they want, and talk about the new state laws aimed at curbing gun violence in Colorado. We'll also talk about a new law designed to better support survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Plus, meet Colorado's Boys and Girls Club Youth Ambassadors. And fifth graders are on a quest to save the bees.
