Boulder City Council passes stricter gun ordinances

Tuesday night, four councils in Boulder County each met to vote on newly-proposed gun ordinances.

 

BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — Boulder City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to pass a slate of new gun control laws, including banning so-called assault weapons and adding a waiting period for people wanting to buy guns.

 

The laws were proposed as a response to the shooting at a Boulder King Soopers in March 2021 that left 10 people dead.

Three of Boulder's neighboring cities -- Louisville, Superior and Lafayette -- are also discussing their own versions of the laws Tuesday evening. The goal is to create similar laws in all of Boulder County. 

 

"Thoughts and prayers are not enough," Boulder Mayor Aaron Brockett said before voting in favor of the ordinances. "We have to take the action that we can with the tools that we have available."

In general, the ordinances will:

  • Ban the sale of assault weapons
  • Ban magazines containing more than 10 rounds
  • Raise the purchase age from 18 to 21
  • Prohibit concealed carry in some places
  • Require a 10-day waiting period for gun purchases
  • Require gun stores to provide more awareness about the dangers of guns using signs
