Good for them. Now they need to vote the fascists who passed this ordinance out of office.
BOULDER, Colorado — Boulder’s newly enacted “assault weapons” ban is meeting with stiff resistance from its “gun-toting hippies,” staunch liberals who also happen to be devoted firearms owners.
Only 342 “assault weapons,” or semiautomatic rifles, were certified by Boulder police before the Dec. 31 deadline, meaning there could be thousands of residents in the scenic university town of 107,000 in violation of the sweeping gun-control ordinance.
“I would say the majority of people I’ve talked to just aren’t complying because most people see this as a registry,” said Lesley Hollywood, executive director of the Colorado Second Amendment group Rally for Our Rights. “Boulder actually has a very strong firearms community.”
The ordinance, approved by the city council unanimously, banned the possession and sale of “assault weapons,” defined as semiautomatic rifles with a pistol grip, folding stock, or ability to accept a detachable magazine. Semiautomatic pistols and shotguns are also included.
Current owners were given until the end of the year to choose one of two options: Get rid of their semiautomatics by moving them out of town, disabling them, or turning them over to police — or apply for a certificate with the Boulder Police Department, a process that includes a firearm inspection, background check and $20 fee.
That’s not all. New Jersey owners of “large-cap” magazines failed to turn them in, too. And there’s some State in the NE which demanded registration of guns; residents forgot, or something.
I love the single-finger salute!!
Where are the Trump “resist” movement on this?
At lest this “resist” movement is supporting the Constitution, not working against it, like liberals do.
As it turns out, there is a resident of Boulder who is suing over the ordinance. And, exactly as one expects, the Left is arranging for his daughter (15-y-o) to be harassed at high school over her father’s intransigence.
That is awful.
Leftists bullying a 15 year old girl.
The Left has been a big bully for sometime.
“The Left has been a big bully for sometime” coming from the party of “lock her up !”. Your hypocrisy is boundless…
Criminals such as the Clinton Syndicate should be imprisoned for life without parole in lieu of execution.
The non-criminal daughter of a non-criminal citizen? Well, that’s where Statist Lefties–and ex-State employees–go.
