Hunters Stage Boycott Over Colorado Gun Laws

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 27, 2013)--Hunters across the country are boycotting Colorado because of the state’s 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.

Hunting outfitters say people began cancelling trips after the legislation passed.

The numbers were small few, but are 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.
