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

Source: Boulder Daily Camera

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 spoke 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.

Council members will deliberate the measure at a future meeting and possibly pass it twice more before it becomes an enshrined Boulder ordinance.


Councilwoman Jill Adler Grano proposed, and received support for, consideration of a ban and called it a "no-brainer" — a sentiment that she stuck with on Thursday night just ahead of the vote.

Jill Grano is badass!



Now that we’ve got “KAG” on the way — it’s not the best acronym, but no one ever claimed Trump was good at wordplay

I'm gonna have to change my name.

The New Randy Rainbow...KIDS!

Randy Rainbow does KIDS!

LaPierre: The elites dont care one wit about school children..."

In his CPAC address Wayne LaPierre said, "The elites don’t care one wit about school children. If they truly cared, they would protect them.”

What does he want us to do...follow our children around and jump in front of any maniac with a gun? I don't see his sorry ass lining up to take a bullet for them. In fact his CPAC speech had to be scheduled secretively and Dana Loesch had to hire private security, all to protect them from those "fake" protesters.

My idea to end the shutdown

Here's my idea to end the shutdown.

Congress needs to come up with a bill that does the following:
--fixes DACA with a path to legal status
--funds CHIP
--immigration fixes that D's and R's can both agree on
--provides funding for disaster relief, especially for PR and the VI
now, bear with me...
--provides lots for border security (tech, manpower, etc., but NO WALL)
--increases military spending because that's all the R's care about

It needs to be a bill that includes all of the stuff that D's and R's already agree on to a large extent, but NO WALL because a wall is stupid, wasteful, counterproductive, and everyone knows it except our moron-in-chief.

This needs to be a bill that could pass easily in both houses, perhaps something like the original bill that President Moron torpedoed. But NO WALL.

And then pass it, and when Trump vetoes it, override the veto.

Trump won't "get it" of course, but it might teach John Kelly to keep his nose out legislative business. And besides, it would be good for the country.

Franni for Senate!

I put this in a comment, and people thought it was a pretty good idea, so I thought I'd try it out as a post.

If Al's resignation is not rescinded with the full support of the Democratic Party, I say Franni (his amazing wife) should be appointed to his seat!

I read in another post that Chuck Schumer is now putting his thumb on the scale as to how he thinks the seat should be filled. Well, frankly, the ONLY people who should have their thumb on this scale are the people of Minnesota. But if Schumer can open his pie-hole on the subject, then so can I. I and I want Franni!

Maybe he should run for president.

So Franken is leaving the senate. But apparently sexual harassment/assault is okay for the president, so I hereby call on Al Franken to run for president.

I suppose he would need to switch to the Republican party first, though, since it is only ever "Okay If You're A Republican."

<--sort of

My favorite quote tonight...

Steve Kornacki: "It might as well be Donald Trump on the ballot tonight."

Congrats, Virginia! Great win for sanity!

You're DAMN RIGHT I'm politicizing this tragedy!

So, Sean Hannity is "incensed" that people would call for stricter gun control laws this soon after some cowardly prick decides to deprive hundreds of people of their lives and loved ones?

Well, I'm incensed that that steaming-pile-of-horse-shit-with-lips uses his megaphone to defend the gutless idiots in Congress who allow themselves to be purchased wholesale by gun manufacturers.

POLITICS is what allows this madness to continue unabated. It's what will allow the shameless cowards in Congress to soon get away with selling their "yes" vote on a bill to loosen restrictions on silencers so that next time there's a Vegas no one will be able to hide because they won't know where the shots are coming from.

POLITICS is what allows the sick interpretation of the Second Amendment that fuels the continuation of this senseless death. And POLITICS can stop it.

So you're goddamn right I'm politicizing this tragedy, you mindless moron!

And every gun-owner in this country should be politicizing it too. Allowing sick fucks to stockpile weapons and ammo like a squirrel gathering nuts does not help their cause. It just means that they get to have the same second thoughts as the rest of us the next time they want to go to a music festival...or a movie...or kindergarten.

I'm feeling just as outraged and as helpless as the Mayor of Puerto Rico, and her words are just as appropriate here as they are in her own situation. "I am BEGGING you! We are DYING!"

The people who can do something about this idiocy are POLITICIANS. So, tell me Sean, how are we to go about stopping it other than through POLITICS? You say that politicizing this tragedy is "an absolutely despicable display." Well, what I think is absolutely despicable is the carnage on display in Vegas, and the impotent blather coming from your "News" outlet every time the bullets begin to fly.

So, yeah, Sean. I'm politicizing this tragedy. And you should too.
