Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman Responds to Court Ruling Dismissing Challenge to Colorado Firearms Laws
DENVER – Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman issued the follow statement after reviewing today’s order by the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, which dismissed on procedural grounds a challenge to Colorado's 2013 gun legislation:
“I’m proud of the team in my office that fulfilled our legal role of defending state laws. The court today did not explain whether Colorado’s large-capacity magazine restriction and background check requirement are consistent with the United States Constitution. Instead the court dismissed the case on procedural grounds,” said Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman.
