This photo taken on Thursday, June 27, 2013, shows a rack of rifles at Firing-Line gun store in Aurora, Colo., that can't be sold in Colorado after June 30 because their magazines hold more than 15 rounds. Limits on ammunition magazines and universal background checks, signature pieces of Colorado Democrats’ gun-control legislation in response to mass shootings, take effect July 1, even as county sheriffs fight to overturn the new laws.

Pilot Mark Curley lands a helicopter for refueling near The Broadmoor's Mountain Golf Course on Tuesday, June 21, 2016. The Pikes Peak Region is experiencing a near-epidemic infestation of two species of defoliating moths in our forests; the Douglas-fir tussock moth and western spruce budworm. Their activity causes thousands of trees to become defoliated, or have the needles eaten down to the branch or twig. These trees are brown and appear dead, but many may not be. In order to protect our forests, the City of Colorado Springs' Forestry Division will be implementing an aerial treatment plan to spray approximately 4,000 acres beginning June 21. The treatment will take place over seven to ten days. The City has hired Frontier Helicopter, who will use a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter to apply a biological control pesticide treatment.

But the actual number the first 12 months of the law is far lower than projected, according to an analysis of state data by The Associated Press. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
