Jack Drake, a gun owner from Highlands Ranch, at the March For Our Lives protest in Denver on March 24, 2018. He says he started changing his mind about gun control after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. "Parkland changed my mind," he said.

A similar bill is being introduced Monday in Colorado by state Rep. Alec Garnett, a Denver Democrat. He tells Colorado Matters the measure has bipartisan support, and is backed by a coalition of sheriffs, chiefs of police and district attorneys.
