The OMG-everyone-freak-out Drudge headline:

 
The headline of the actual story:

 

The actual story:

“They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” [Republican State Senator Greg] Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd.
Brophy says if Democrats succeed in passing a bill limiting large capacity magazines in Colorado, they’ll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting...
Brophy points to a section of the bill that defines a high-capacity magazine as one capable of accepting or — that can be readily converted — to accept more than 15 rounds or eight shotgun shells.

See how that works? Banning magazines that accept over eight shotgun shells becomes "banning shotguns".

I'm sure there are decent arguments against banning such magazines. I just wish that the gun fetishists would make them instead of throwing up red herrings.
