Thread: Cities enact gun control

    Cities enact gun control

    The city of Boulder, Colo., banned the sale and possession of "assault" weapons this week as gun-control efforts in the state flagged earlier in the month. The Boulder City Council voted unanimously Tuesday in support of a new ordinance that also bans bump stocks and magazines capable of carrying more than 10 rounds within city limits. The ordinance defines "assault" weapons as "semi-automatic firearms designed with military features to allow rapid spray firing for the quick and efficient killing of humans."

    The council exempted law enforcement officials, members of the military, competitive shooters and people who hold federal firearm licenses. People who owns an assault-style weapon before June 15 may keep it if they pass a background check, obtain a certificate from the Boulder Police Department, designate a safe place to store the weapon and only possess the weapon at a gun shop or on their property. They also must report theft of the weapon within 48 hours.
    The law goes into effect July 15 for the accessories and Dec. 31 for the semi-automatic firearms. By those deadlines, people who own the banned items must turn them in to authorities, break them so they won't work, get rid of them or obtain a city permit.
    Unlike the banned firearms, the bump stocks and high-capacity magazines will not be grandfathered in.
    An attorney from Mountain States Legal Fund attended the council meeting and promised to sue city leaders over the new ordinance on behalf of an unnamed client.

    The Columbus City Council has approved new laws aimed at reducing violence in Ohio’s capital city.
    The council voted 6-0 on Monday to ban bump stocks in the city; prohibit people from brandishing imitation firearms like Airsoft guns in public while prohibiting sales of imitation guns to minors; allow the city to shut down businesses where violent crime has occurred; and include people who are dating to victims and suspects of domestic violence.
    The Cincinnati City Council recently approved a new law prohibiting bump stocks, which effectively turn semi-automatic rifles like AR-15s into automatics by greatly reducing recoil.

    It warms my heart to see these people starting to take an interest in their local governments.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    This literally doesn't make any sense, only someone unfamiliar with the subject would even dare utter such nonsense; we are all now dumber for having read it. Congratulations to the people of Boulder, the bar you have lowered, has put you onto your own knees. Idiots.

    Not sure if serious, but in either case, if its a semi-auto it is neither a military weapon nor can it do rapid spray firing--while altering weapons with external apparatuses is a completely separate issue to be addressed on its own merits.
