Colorado's long-anticipated gun control debate is getting underway, with some Democrats planning to pursue gun control measures including expanded background checks and a possible statewide assault-weapons ban. At the same time, Republicans were arguing Monday for a bill designed to allow school employees to carry concealed weapons at work. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley) Photo by
