Boulder, Colorado is a located about 20 miles northwest of downtown Denver, in the foothills of the mountains. It’s a picturesque city with the majestic mountain backdrop but it’s become an ugly city when it comes to the politics of gun control. Hunting is a huge industry in Colorado, despite efforts of the anti-gun Democrats who run the state. There are many people in the state, Republican and Democrat who value their gun rights but sadly there is a growing number of liberals who want to see more gun control laws passed.

The city counsel is looking at several gun control ordinances, including a ban on assault weapons (which proves they have no idea what they are talking about since assault weapons are already banned in the US).

However, advocates of the gun control ordinances are urging the city counsel to act and not let the measures appear on the ballot so voters can decide for themselves.

(Daily Camera – Boulder News) – Supporters of Boulder’s proposed ban on assault weapons, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines are imploring the City Council not to put the proposal to a public vote in November, and rather to pass the ban at the council level as soon as possible.

The council has pending before it a law authored by the city attorney, at the request of the council following the school shooting in Parkland, Fla. The proposed ban was the subject of an evening-long public hearing earlier this month, at which passionate voices on both sides turned out to lobby the council.

After that hearing, Councilman Sam Weaver said he felt the proposal was best left to voters.

“Boulder has a long history of taking big, important issues to its voters,” Weaver said. “It’s the most democratic way for us to draw the line about what weapons are acceptable in the community.” …

It’s obvious why the gun control supporters don’t want the gun control measures to be voted on and that’s because the voters in the city will vote them down. Gun control advocates don’t care what the majority of the people want or think, all they want to do is impose their views on everyone and will use whatever means they can do make it happen.
