(DENVER POST) Hundreds of Coloradans showed up at the state Capitol on Monday to cheer or jeer seven Democratic gun-control measures that senators debated late into the night.

John Hickenlooper, and drivers drove around and around the Capitol honking their displeasure with the gun bills. Inside, the number of people lined up to testify — many of them gun-rights advocates — made it nearly impossible to navigate the hallways at times.
