DENVER – Proposals to change how people get concealed carry gun permits in Colorado and new restrictions on gun ownership for domestic-violence offenders will be up for consideration in the House.

The proposals scheduled for committee votes Thursday have already cleared the Senate.

Senate Bill 195 would require people seeking concealed carry permits to take gun training courses in person. People can currently take online courses.

Senate Bill 197 would require courts to order anyone subject to a domestic violence protection order or convicted of domestic violence to relinquish their guns within 24 hours. A judge could extend that to 72 hours. That bill also goes to the state House.

Last week, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed three gun control measures into law

Those bills restrict the size of gun magazines, expanding background checks for firearms buyers and adding a fee for background checks for gun transfers. Those bills become effective July 1.

The five bills are part of the Democrats’ package of new gun legislation responding to mass shootings last year at a school in Connecticut and a theater in Aurora.

Bills being debated Thursday:

SB 195:

SB 197:
