    Surprised this was not discussed. I mentioned that Boulder was considering banning the AR in Seacowboy's, Time to get proactive thread. Boulder has now voted and has banned AR-15. Please note they also banned high-capacity magazines, which the state banned the purchase of a few years ago. Stuff will be grandfathered in but only if you fill out the paperwork. IMO this is a way for the City of Boulder to collect names and addresses of gun owners. This is so wrong.

    Here is the news story:
    Boulder, Colorado, unanimously votes to ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines Boulder, Colorado, unanimously votes to ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines

    I don't know why this has not been challenged at the level of the Supreme Court.... How does CO get away with banning any gun

    Just a note that @chelloveck could probably verify, but I was recently reading about the gun ban in Aussie land, and supposedly the estimate on the ORIGINAL MANDITORY GUN TURN IN, and the 2 further AMNESTY TURN INS several years later and also several years apart, that have only collected in total no more than 30% of all the firearms they estimated were out there. Most are expected to be in the hands of rural folks and CRIMINALS. Guess the military and constabulary don't want to go door to door to force confiscate firearms from possible armed folks. Funny how that works. But of course in nation of modern Dumbmasses of Sheeple in ignorant Amerika where supposedy one household in 4 has firearms, actual firearms confiscation would probably easily exceed that low mark of 30% set in the former penal colony. BTW we got a lot of those from various countries around the world as well.

    Hmmm... sounds like an ADA law suit waiting to happen... the pistol grip is needed to make it easier for individuals with neuro muscular damage to hold the weapon, small caliber makes it easier to shoot... a bolt action can be difficult to operate with said neuro muscular injuries, no to mention the added weight ... someone call the ACLU....

    Well, I guess we know where to find some good deal on ARs now...
    It will take them years to reverse this decision in courts and why should the City Council give a damn how much the court costs since the taxpayer picks up the tab. First thing to do is vote out that City Council then reverse that law, probably faster than getting a decision from a gun-friendly court

    Moto, this is laughable in many ways, as you well know, the "High Cap" mag ban was a complete joke, and the city of Bolder has no means to enforce any bans any way, so it's a feel good excersize that has ZERO effect on the actual ban or the people who would now become felona persona' aue! Just look at all the good folks who laughed in the face of LEO when the mag ban went in to effect!
    Mean while in OryGun, the fight is ramping up big time! It may well come down to a final show down, and I'm gonna be right smack dab in the middle of it! Partly by choice, partly by circumstances beyond my control!
    There are an awful lot of Patriots still in OryGun, so this is going to be one hell of a fight, one to make history and set precedent against the anti crowd from now on!

    They are thinking that their city law can trump state law. The state grandfathered owned high-capacity magazines, plus the state failed to outlaw the "kits" to fix your magazines.
    Denver has an assault weapon ban and that has been challenged in court. I am believing that Colorado is a lost cause. The scared anti-gun crowd out numbers the gun owners.

    @Ura-Ki are you talking about this:

    I thought Colorado was the state where you could own just about anything, including your own tank, if so desired?

    Anything can be banned. Enforcing the ban is where things get messy.
    In about 100 years we are either going to be back to a realistic world where our rights are not given to us by the state .. or we are all going to be wearing matching onezys and eating our meals from biodegradeable cups with paper sporks.

    "In Oregon, a church group is also collecting signatures for a ballot initiative that would also force law-abiding gun owners to turn over, register, destroy, or transfer out of the state their firearms."

    Not all firearms like the above reads, but the so called assault weapons and some others that have scary features. Also want to limit mags to 10 rounds.

    That news story is incorrect! I.P. 43 and 44 are effectively blocked, now facing a State Supream Court hearing, their has been significant blow back from patriots who have filed a challenge with the A.G. title submission and now have standing in the court for a challenge of the full I.P. on both! Until the Court hears the challenges and makes a ruling, no signatures can be gathered, period! Furthermore, there are a large number of Patriots watching the gatherers to ensure no funny business takes place, and that the rules are followed to the letter of the law! Worst case, the Court fast tracks the hearing, sides with the "Church" group and the A.G. title and statement, and allowed the gathering of signatures, which at best pushes the time limits to only a hand full of days before the cut off. Also, the Gov'ness Bloody Kate could risk her election chances and pull an "Emergency action" to side step the freeze on signature gathering, and or alter the election laws to allow this on the ballot in November! Every one believes that IF it makes it before the voters in November, we'e screwed and it will pass! How ever, only the O.S.P. will try to enforce any of it, acting in detect defiance of the Sheriffs of each county who ha e publically vowed to refuse to uphold any part of ether I.P. weather it passes or not! So, it once again comes down to who would risk a fight to enforce any of this shit, and the fact that these I.Ps make pretty much every gun owner a felon as of January 1st, has brought out a very large contingent of fun owners to try and stop this. The sad facts are that Portland it's self could/will vote this into existence, and the County Sheriff that serves the greater Portland area is a anti 2nd Nazi buffoon! As you can see, even semi auto hand guns become "Assault Weapons" most shot guns, and most .22 rim fire rifles and pistols, even antiques are on the chopping blocks! Then there is the I.P. 44 which effectively overturns Heller vs D.C. in that fire arms security trumps 2nd protections as it effects accessibility for defence, and further, it mandates penatalies for 5 years after sale, transfer, or theft, if a weapon is used in a crime th at was supposed to be secured and was found not in compliance! Dangerous times my friends!

    Banning legal sporting rifles and their STANDARD CAPACITY magazines is something I am not surprised this blue city in Commierado would do. They are about as bad as California.

    Colorado sheriffs said the same thing. They wrote a formal statement and tried to reason with the supporters of banning 30 round magazines. Your biggest fight is with Portland and Eugene, the people that reside there do not know firearms one bit. I read an article on the Boulder ban and they were talking about a gun store that was located a few blocks from a school. One parents was quoted as saying that was scary. These people are scared by just a picture of a gun. Good luck but IMO Oregon is overrun with unrealistic do-gooders.

    I would say that half the people in my classes are Mormon. They are very active and always training- first aid, search and rescue, HAM etc.. The ones I know are really good decent people

    The way I understand it Colorado leans hard to the left. So I don't find it hard to believe. Sad though. You can surf the web and find plenty of people just screaming and crying and almost demanding to have rights and freedoms taken away. So trusting of the government. Living in a state of denial. I guess they didn't learn anything from History.

    Unfortunately, Co. Has the same problem as most of the state's Boulder and Denver are the "Voice" of the State, despite the greater numbers of conservatives, the hard numbers of votes will always be democrats and always go to the anti 2nd vote, it simply a matter of getting the greater number of voters from the Republican and independent side to turn out and vote! It also doesn't help at all the the media always side with the liberal left and the heart strings feel gooders that want to ban guns under the false illusions of safety and protection provide a by Law enforcement who are consistently only 10 min away so that they can count the bodies and the number of shots fired, call the coroner's office and report the tragedy! If it happens to be a good guy with a gun stopping a baddy, that never makes the news, because it shows proof of the lies being spread by the antis! Colorado and the rest of the state's need to be watching OryGun very closely, because the biggest gun fight in history is about to go down and what happens there will set president in every nook and cranny of this nation! It's gonna be a hard core fight, and it's going to be costly and close ( might even be bloody), but it's going to be the most important fight of our time!
