DENVER (AP) — The head of the National Rifle Association is in Denver to meet with Colorado officials about gun control.

David Keene is meeting Thursday with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Senate President John Morse, both Democrats. Hickenlooper favors expanded background checks. Morse has proposed a new law to make weapons producers legally liable for damage caused by their guns. The measures come in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting that killed 12.

Colorado Republicans say expanding background checks to private purchases would require a full registry of gun owners. They say the gun-liability measure would effectively eliminate certain weapons from being sold.

Keene says the NRA is generally supportive of stronger background checks. Keene says more attention is needed on mental health, also a subject of the Colorado Democrats’ proposals.
