DENVER (AP) — A Democrat-led state House committee is hearing a package of Republican-sponsored gun bills. One bill being heard would allow concealed carry on public school grounds. Another would repeal gun magazine limits that were adopted after the 2012 mass shootings at an Aurora movie theater and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The House panel is expected to reject most, if not all of the five bills.

They have no reason now to suspect a crime led to Edlin's death.
