The Trump administration is OK with a ban on bump stocks. The Florida Legislature, despite opposition from the National Rifle Association, last week approved a package of gun control measures, including a ban on bump stocks that increase the firing capacity of normal rifles. Colorado's state Senate is a week away from hearing a bill that would take the same step. But it won't pass here, according to Senate Republican leadership. And they're backed by several gun rights groups that all oppose bump stock bans and which have been generous with Senate Republicans.

A state Senate bill aimed at better safeguarding students by allowing county sheriffs to train school employees in gun safety passed Tuesday afternoon on a party line vote in the Senate State Affairs committee. <a href="http://leg.colorado.gov/bills/sb17-005" target="_blank">Senate Bill 005</a> now heads to the chamber floor for consideration. The bill drew some 30 witnesses to Tuesday’s hearing. Testimony see-sawed for and against and stretched out for more than two hours. That the basic premises of the bill and the motivation behind its introduction seemed up for grabs was another sign, if any were needed, of how fraught gun politics remain in the state.

As it turns out, the 2016 general election in Colorado will probably follow the recent trends of presidential election cycles, with two exceptions that may help Republicans hold the state Senate. The most important numbers to watch are ballot returns. As of time of publication, Democrats have turned in more ballots than Republicans. That’s especially bad news for Republicans in several close state Senate races and for U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman in his run against state Sen. Morgan Carroll.
