Hunters begin boycott over Colorado gun laws

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Hunters across the country are boycotting Colorado because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence.

Michael Bane, a producer for The Outdoor Channel, announced he will no longer film his four shows in Colorado, and hunters are joining the protests.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, hunting outfitters say people began cancelling trips after the legislation passed. The numbers are few, but growing.

Colorado's governor signed bills this month that ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds, and require background checks for private and online gun sales.

Those new gun laws and others were drawn up in response to mass killings at a suburban Denver movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school.
