How you get past it is to mail letters, write emails and make phone calls to the folks in the committees. Then you do the same thing to all your representatives and senators and you keep doing it until it passes. If they don't listen then let everyone know that they are anti gun and show the record.
It should also be emphasized that governors generally have no direct power to control whether a bill gets a floor vote in the legislature. I don't know about CO specifically, but this is generally true of almost all jurisdictions in the USA.

The governor can use the bully pulpit and strong-arm influential legislators in various ways, but the fact that he or she can is no guarantee that it will actually happen.
