Colorado governor Jared Polis has signed four new gun control bills into law, five months after the Club Q nightclub shooting.
Content warning: This story may include topics that could make some readers feel uncomfortable. Back in November, the Colorado Springs community was hit with a devastating loss after a shooter entered Club Q and opened fire on its patrons.
The terrifying attack, which occurred minutes before Transgender Day of Remembrance, resulted in five innocent people killed and 19 individuals wounded.
In response to the Club Q attack and the growing number of mass shootings in the US, Colorado’s governor Polis signed not one but four gun control bills into law. “Today we are taking important steps to help make Colorado one of the ten safest states, and building upon the ongoing work to make Colorado communities safer,” he said on 28 April.
