Well, this is an interesting one... Staunch Democrats protesting their elected governments "gun ban" (Like, what did you think would happen when you vote in Democrats who openly tell you they are going to ban your choices of self defense?)

I find it funny that they are running around with "We will not comply" signs and t-shirts.

Strange days indeed. Very strange.

Appears 10's of thousands of Boulder residents are now technically criminals.

BOULDER, Colorado — Boulder’s newly enacted “assault weapons” ban is meeting with stiff resistance from its “gun-toting hippies,” staunch liberals who also happen to be devoted firearms owners.

Only 342 “assault weapons,” or semiautomatic rifles, were certified by Boulder police before the Dec. 31 deadline, meaning there could be thousands of residents in the scenic university town of 107,000 in violation of the sweeping gun-control ordinance.

“I would say the majority of people I’ve talked to just aren’t complying because most people see this as a registry,” said Lesley Hollywood, executive director of the Colorado Second Amendment group Rally for Our Rights. “Boulder actually has a very strong firearms community.”

Yeah, that's great and all, but this wouldn't be a problem if you people WOULD STOP VOTING FOR ANTI-GUN POLITICIANS!

Just saying.

They elect people who openly oppose the 2nd Amendment and then get pissed off when those people do what they said they were gonna do?

Is Boulder collectively retarded? Mentally ill? There aren't very many explanations for this.

No Doubt....

To clarify, The ordinance approved by the city council unanimously, banned the possession and sale semiautomatic rifles, Semiautomatic pistols and shotguns that have the ability to accept a detachable magazine.

The current owners were given until the end of 2018 to choose 1 of 3 options: Get rid of their semiautomatics by moving them out of town, disabling them, or turning them over to police.

Supposedly besides those options they could apply for a certificate with the Boulder Police Department, a process that includes a firearm inspection, background check and $20 fee and I am sure your model, serial #, etc. for "later".

10's of thousands of people are now criminals for non-compliance..... Great Job Democrats

Oh, by the way... Democrats are NOT coming for you firearms! Can anyone really say that with a straight face?

We need to be standing up for our rights regardless of party. Glad to see some liberals finally get it as well.

Check this one out.... (Only a few highlights below)

On January 1, I became a criminal in my hometown of Boulder
pagetwo.completecolorado.com...




It’s not the intolerance of progressives that is so insulting. It is the denial of their intolerance that is so abusive.

When I was growing up it was the liberals who more often held the moral high-ground. Those of us raised in the 1970’s heard it all the time — “the end doesn’t justify the means.” It was echoed in the media, in nearly every political battle, in entertainment and at water cooler conversations. By contrast it was intolerant conservatives who spouted, “America, love it or leave it.”

Progressives have not just rejected that proud tradition, they have remade it into the ugly opposite — the end justifies all: Coercing speech with speech codes and forcing cake bakers to create statements against their core religious beliefs; social justice warfare and identity politics; the nanny state banning everything from plastic straws to tobacco products; and forcing private health insurance products at gun-point.

Progressives wield intolerance like the weapon it is. But are they kidding us or themselves when they smugly assert their tolerance? Do they believe their “Celebrate Diversity” bumper stickers, blind to the hypocrisy?

I find myself thinking about this since at the beginning of January I became a criminal in my tolerant hometown of Boulder.

For publicly stating that I will not comply, my daughter has been targeted at her Boulder school, the one with posters celebrating tolerance and diversity all over the walls. My refusal to submit has been commented on by teachers in front of their classes. She has been ganged up on by students and bullied because “her father is a murderer.” She is worried that I will be taken to jail. As a single dad to her and her handicapped brother, I have to admit I’m worried about that too.

Another Resident's testimonial:

pagetwo.completecolorado.com...




My home town of Boulder is about to define me as a criminal if I do not disarm or move.

Let this column serve as a public notice, I will not comply

I understand the fear and bigotry coming from City Council. I used to be like that myself. In younger days I was a proud member of Handgun Control Inc., now called the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence.

Government doesn’t register guns, they register gun owners, who many consider a hate group. I find this possibility perhaps the most troubling aspect of Boulder’s whole symbolic exercise. Registering a group of people you find potentially dangerous isn’t new. Ask Japanese-Americans during World War 2.

I remember a time when fearful people were seriously suggesting registering AIDS patients. There are plenty today who fear the beliefs of those who own hijabs. Many want to ban hijabs and register those who wear them.

Of course, Boulder feels what they are doing is completely different. Their registration is about public safety — just like the others.

It’s easy to tolerate groups you understand or sympathize with. The true test of Boulder-style tolerance and inclusion is with groups you can’t relate to or find threatening. Used to be homosexuals. Today it’s gun owners.

Let it be known, like those who refused to go to the back of the bus, I will not surrender or destroy my guns, nor will I place my name on a government watch list.

So, are we now to trust the MSM? The WT is and has been a part of the MSM for decades.
So, how are we to believe them when they say the protesters were gun totting hippies?
How are we to believe they are staunch democrats?

This article was written on the words of one man and I could find no mention of him calling the noncompliance gun owners hippies or democrats.

As well as being MSM the Washington Times is owned by the Unification Church, that Korean Messiah cult that now has serious gun manufacturing interests.

Nice to see Americans standing up for their inalienable rights. Now to just get rid of those who make these laws which are actually attacks on American freedoms and liberties.

You reap what you sow.

Keep on voting those rights away. Eventually you'll see the new Democratic party for what it is..the communist party.

It's Colorado. The land of Hunter S. Thompson. There is a different breed of liberal around those parts.

These new gun loving libs are the red headed step-children of regular tree huggers. Had to happen sooner or later.
