Boulder Colorado Is About to Pass an Assault Weapons Ban

May 4, 2018 AT 12:30 PM

Boulder — a city where a local bank once handed out rifles to customers — is about to pass a law far less friendly to firearms.

The Boulder City Council Tuesday night gave tentative approval to a ban on the sale and possession of what the city defines as “assault weapons” — a proposal that sparked a pro-gun street protest in the left-leaning college town last month.

The measure also would ban bump stocks (a.k.a. “multi-burst trigger activators”) and high-capacity magazines holding 10 or more rounds.

It was approved unanimously Tuesday and now must undergo a third reading in a few weeks, KUSA-9News reports. The third reading may lead to some amendments to the measure.
