Boulder City Council Skips Ballot, Moves for All Out Ban on “Assault Weapons” and Magazines

 In 2nd Amendment

Thanks to left wing gun control advocates, Boulder City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday night for an all out ban on the possession and sale of “assault weapons” and high capacity magazines. We previously reported that the council was going to read the bill a second time, but whether it would come up for a November vote or be set in place by the council was unclear. The measure will be adopted formally at the third reading, which should take place in the next few weeks.

There was an allout push by anti-gun groups for the law. The law is stricter now that when the City Attorney first drafted it. If the verbiage doesn’t change, it will be adopted at the 3rd reading. As we reported previously, bump stocks must be destroyed or removed within 30 days of adoption. Magazines have to be gone by December 31.

And gun owners who previously owned the guns before the law will have to register them in a paper registration system that the police are required to keep.  The paper registration was their version of a “compromise” to mitigate the concerns over computerizing the list.  Registration is still registration, whatever the council claims.

Some of the definitions reported by the  Daily Camera are:

All semiautomatic rifles that have the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and that have any of the following characteristics: a pistol grip or thumbhole stock; a folding or telescoping stock; or any protruding grip or other device to allow the weapon to be stabilized with the non-trigger hand.

All semiautomatic center-fire pistols that have any of the following characteristics: the capacity to accept a magazine other than in the pistol grip or any device to allow the weapon to be stabilized with the non-trigger hand.

Any firearm that has been modified to be operable as an assault weapon as defined by the city, plus any part or combination or parts designed to convert a firearm into an assault weapon.

Jon Caldara, President of the Independence Institute, a gun owner and  Boulder Resident, wrote:

“I saw the hate last weekend as gun owners peacefully waived signs along Broadway protesting the council’s bigotry. They were greeted with Boulderites’ middle fingers and f-bombs, even to the woman who carried the sign, “If Boulder was registering Muslims, I’d be protesting too.”

Gun owners in Boulder are feared, ridiculed, separated, unwelcomed, soon to have their property turned contraband or forced to place themselves on a government watch list.

The message couldn’t be more clear: Gun owners, kindly leave our lily-white, homogeneous town. You scare us.”

    In today’s times, contact the NRA and sue the City for violation of Constitutional Rights……, all the way to the Supreme Court if need be

    Anything can be used to assult someone. It’s not just guns. This is a infringement on a law abiding citizen right. Guess the cops are not going to have them either?

    observe the absorption of the constitution veering of t-words a tyrannical government .who is resisted by a well regulated militia . (armed citizens who passed a background check and a handling and safety course). pretty shortly i believe we will start seeing more and more skirmishes between the people and the local government, it has already happened. i forgot what state were the government tried to illegally seize a cattle farmers property a small armed group got together and held the line. the local government was found to be in the wrong under federal court. do not fall for the local governments bullshit, these are encroaching , high and mighty politicians that think they have the right to undermine the bill of rights and constitution becouse they have a small seat of power, so they will try, just to see if they can get away with the corruption or not which is why they are often found to be encroaching on you’re rights and in the wrong but they will do it anyway just to see if they can get away with it.
