Boulder gun owners
This is like reading something from 1930s Nazi Germany
....or the 1980's in Chicago (handgun ban....turn 'em in, or you're a felon....unless you're a Chicago Alderman, and then you're exempt.)
Boulder legislators knew this was a unenforcible feel good bill when they passed it. A few of them even said so publicly.
"For those who did comply, if the city turns around and decides all such weapons must go, guess what? They already know where some of them are."
This is incorrect. The law stated that the police departments, who did the certifications, couldn't keep any records, just a hand-written count. So there is no registry, which made the law even more pointless.
Boulder is a unique place. I got my college education there in the '80s, and lived there from 1990 to 2000. It's a liberal haven in a beautiful geographic area. Property values have consistently remained among the highest in the state. My brother in law served on the city council for 18 years, 4 years as deputy major, and 5 years as major.
I was so happy to move from there, and into the boonies of rural CO.
I think most hunters are happy to move from anywhere to a place that's more in the boonies than where they were prior.
If you could duplicate the earth with less than a million like-minded folks on the entire planet, I'd be happy to take Wyoming for myself.
NO WAY! I got "dibs"!!! Went to school and lived there in the 70's.
