The war continues to wage over the Second Amendment, as liberals at every level of government, city, state, and federal, attempt to push for gun control laws that will restrict the right to bear arms.
Much of the fight seems to be focused on what the firearm illiterate call “assault weapons,” which in reality, could be any type of gun, but the ignorant on the left are thinking of automatic rifles or machine guns. The rifles these people want banned are actually still only semi-automatic, so yeah, there’s that.
Well, the city council in Boulder, Colorado has decided that having the means to protect and preserve one’s liberty, property, and physical safety isn’t all that important, as they have voted to ban assault weapons in the city.
Attorneys from Mountain States Legal Foundation, speaking during the open comment section preceding the vote, vowed to challenge the ban in court on behalf of an unnamed client, alleging “violations of the Second, Fifth and 14th Amendments, (and) the Colorado Constitution.”
Cody Wisniewski, a staff attorney for the foundation, said individual council members would be named in the suit as well.Trending:
The ordinance prohibits the sale and possession of assault weapons, as defined by the city. Also outlawed are high-capacity magazines and bump stocks.
Owners of the latter two items will have until July 15 to dispose of or sell them. Assault weapons will be grandfathered in; those in possession of such firearms have until the end of the year to receive a certificate proving prior ownership.
This is a huge blow for liberty, especially for the citizens of Boulder, as the whole purpose of the Second Amendment is to enable folks to have the means to protect themselves from tyranny and oppression.
What’s truly terrifying about this is that lots of other local governments might decide to go ahead and follow suit, issuing similar bans, as it is much easier to accomplish such a task on a small scale like the local level than the state or federal level.
We might be witnessing the death of the American political experiment one municipality at a time. Tragic.
