The [Boulder] city council unanimously passed an ordinance on Tuesday to ban the sale and possession of assault weapons, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines — becoming one of a handful of cities nationwide that have taken action to change its gun laws in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting massacre.

The new law requires people to dispose of or sell bump stock devices and magazines that hold 10 or more rounds of ammunition by July 15 and owners of assault weapons, defined by the ordinance as “semi-automatic firearms designed with military features to allow rapid spray firing,” must relinquish or destroy them by December 31.

There is a clause allowing owners of assault weapons to apply for a permit proving prior ownership as long as they pass a background check and are not prohibited by law from owning a gun.

Yeah!
