Look Out!! Colorado Legislators Push for Gun Restraining Orders

Denver Post headlines, p. 1, above the fold, Friday, 13 April, 2018: CO Dems are trying to talk CO Repub. legislators into a late bill to legislate Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) aka Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), which evade Legal due process and seize guns without that due process upon accusation in a star-chamber judicial proceeding without the accused being present. This high-handed and highly unconstitutional tactic is being employed in about a half-dozen liberal states and involves seizure of a person’s guns and a ‘time-limited’ restraining order from a judge, preventing a person from exercising their right to keep and bear arms (think you are going to get your guns back and in decent shape, when time is up?). This extra-Legal tactic is highly subject to draconian mis-use and abuse.

Rally For Our Rights This Saturday

The City of Boulder is now attempting to ban the sale and possession of the City Attorney’s definition of “assault weapons.” Under his definition, nearly every firearm in the City of Boulder would be subject to confiscation or registration — or YOU would become a criminal for not complying.
Are you ready to show Boulder exactly how many people don’t support its proposed rights infringement?
Then join your fellow Second Amendment supporters at Rally For Our Rights – Boulder – a demonstration in support of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms!

Saturday April 21st at 1:00 — 3:00 PM in Central Park, at Broadway St. & Canyon Blvd. in Boulder.

This will be a non-permitted event exercising our First Amendment right to protest on public sidewalks and in the public park. There will be no speakers or set agenda. We will be lining Broadway St. as well as Central Park across the street from the City Council building. We will carry flags, banners, and signs. Please make sure your signs are focused on the Second Amendment and not political candidates or other issues.

We will meet at the Bandshell on the corner of 13th Street and Canyon Blvd and spread out from there. There are several parking structures downtown for parking, as well as street parking all over downtown.

Please share this invitation with your friends and other interested parties. It’s time to fight back and make our voices heard. We hope to see you there!

Yours in Freedom,

Amanda Sanders

Boulder City Council gives assault-weapons ban initial OK after marathon hearing

Council members may pass it twice more before it becomes an ordinance.
The Boulder City Council on Thursday night unanimously passed on first reading an ordinance that bans the sale and possession of certain firearms defined as assault weapons.

The council adjourned following a more than five-hour-long meeting where nearly 150 people signed up to speak for and against the proposed ordinance, which would also prohibit high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, a device that allows a semi-automatic weapon to be fired more like a fully automatic rifle. By the end of the evening, about 111 people actually spoke, according to Councilmember Sam Weaver.

Read this if you live, work or travel through the city of Boulder

The Boulder City Council is scheduled to consider a proposal that would ban most commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms used for self-defense, target shooting and hunting. Language of this proposed ordinance is not currently available. The city council will hold a public hearing on Thursday, April 5 at 6:00 pm, to consider it.
Please plan on attending the meeting and voice opposition to this proposed GUN BAN ordinance.
