BOULDER, Colo. – The Boulder City Council has voted unanimously to ban the sale or possession of military-style firearms.
The council took the vote late Tuesday to pass the measure which also outlaws high-capacity magazines - those with 10 or more rounds - and bump stocks.
Owners of the magazines and bump stocks will have until July 15 to dispose or sell them.
Owners of the firearms will have until the end of the year to get a certificate proving prior ownership if they want to keep the firearms.
The only exceptions will be for law enforcement, governmental officers and military personnel.
Last month hundreds of advocates for gun rights staged a protest in Boulder over the proposal.
Attorneys stated during the public comment period of the city council meeting that they plan to challenge the ban in court.
“We’re seeing that individuals are set up to fail,” said Zuri Moreno, an advocacy/policy assistant for ACLU-Montana.
