Photos: Gun-magazine-ban demonstration at State Capitol

"This is not a protest!" exclaimed Ryan Tuleja, one of several dozen Second Amendment defenders who gathered outside the Colorado State Capitol on the day a ban of high-capacity magazines went into effect.

And he was right.

The event was more of an act of civil disobedience, with people in attendance selling and swapping prohibited magazines -- all in front of the eyes of a local law enforcement agency.

"This law is unenforceable," Tuleja shouted. "They know it's unenforceable!"

Officers stood idly as these acts took place.

Look below to see photos and accompanying captions from the event.
