The Denver Post reports the Colorado House has passed House Bill 1224 on a 34-31 vote, limiting high capacity gun magazines to just 15 rounds of ammunition. Three Democrats voted against the bill. It is the first of four gun bills the House was taking recorded votes on Monday, the newspaper reports.

State Rep. Beth McCann, D-Denver, one of the gun magazine bill’s sponsors, said high-capacity magazines had been used in numerous high-profile spree shootings, citing in particular the case of Jared Loughner, who used one in the Tucson shooting in which Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head.
