Unconstitutional: Whenever we see the Left moving to implement a new rule or law governing the use, handling, or ownership of firearms we are reminded of the very simple language of the Second Amendment, which reads in full: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Liberal and conservative scholars and lawmakers have debated the meaning of militia and whether or not the founders meant that the Second Amendment applied only to organized state military forces. But others have noted that based on historical data and references such as the Federalist Papers, a series of published documents written by a few of the founders explaining every part of the Constitution, it is clear the amendment applies generally to the people.
Theres another part of the amendment that is also crystal clear where it says unequivocally that the right
to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

If Canada wasted about a Billion dollars on a gun registry the US will waste 100 billion
For your interest.
One wonders quite how many millions of additional firearms have been added to conservative arsenals due to leftists’ agitation toward gun bans.
What are you talking about?? No guns here. They are just too scary and stuff.
I hope it passes. We need to get this “settled”, sooner than later.
Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Courts opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Millers holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those in common use at the time finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons.
Lower courts and liberal governments have taken this to mean that anything they wish to ban is OK, and until the Supreme Court takes on another 2A case, the district courts will uphold any scheme to ban guns and magazines that the states choose to dream up.
That is actual numbers, not percentages of estimates.
There are about as many Christian churches as guns in Boulder; my sister lives there. There are, however, cannabis stores, and 2 bikes per person per capita.
A militia is a military force that is raised from the civil population to supplement a regular army in an emergency. The civil population has the right to keep and bear arms so that in an emergency, a militia can be formed from that group of people, to supplement the regular army. What part of that the libs don’t understand is beyond me.
Barky Obama is still undisputed “gun salesman of the year”. Hillary was catching up until she lost in 2016.
So far about 85 people have registered. The point person on the Boulder Council was Jill Adler Grano and I suspect she didn’t come up with this crap herself, I smell a Bloomberg.
Wait and see how long before they start going door to door & searching every stopped vehicle.
Without registration and without warrants, confiscation could wind up just like Katrina.
Boulder, 34 square miles surrounded by reality.
Guns are easy to make if you don’t need them to be highly accurate.
In the civil war, mortars and roadside bombs will be the major weapons, as they are in the Middle East.
Ammo is tougher to make, and simply no longer possible to track.
Not stealing other peoples’ money via government is easy, though.
Yes indeed. ( and With registration and warrants, confiscation attempts could end up just like Hiroshima. Id hate to be the poor bureaucrat or officer that tried it, ha!)
In a civil war, leave the cell phone at home. Electronic devices are great tracking devices.
Don’t buy any more guns. One is enough.
Civil war isn’t a social occasion. If you hang out you will be hung up.
I’m a pipefitter by trade. Give me the length and diameter of the pipe you be needing. If you order today you get two free caps with every order.
If it saves just one life....
Meanwhile DemocRats advocate the murder of more than a million unborn babies a year as they seek absolute, overwhelming power over our lives.
Wow - Im sure all these activist judges will strike this law down immediately as a violation of our civil rights.
Right Roberts? Coz there are no Obama or leftist judges
