Edit - Missed a copy and past of the last letter of the Boulder Ordinance URL. Fixed link.

Colorado - Boulder has passed their so called assault weapons ban. The assault weapons ban goes into effect 12/31/18. It states Mags for handguns can’t be larger than 15 rounds. Regulates the possession of any firearm inside the city to those 21 or older. There are other items that were added/reworded etc. You can read the new ordinance at the link below. I did extract just the part of the document that pertained to the firearms ban. The Document was over 500 pages. http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/agopinions/Boulder.pdf

Vail Colorado has an ordinance that Handgunlaw.us just found out about.
6-3H-9: Magazine Capacity: It shall be unlawful to carry, store or otherwise possess a magazine which will hold or may be modified to hold twenty-one (21) or more rounds. Sterling Codifiers, Inc.

Are they grandfathering those mags that don’t meet the law that were owned before the ordinance was passed? Does state preemption apply in these cases? Things like this are the reason that many states passed preemption in the first place. Driving or even walking across a line only sometimes visible on a map takes a good person and turns them into a criminal. Preemption can’t have exceptions. Those exceptions will do a lot more harm than good.

Texas — The Texas Dept of Public Safety has put up a short list of approved online training courses. You still have to have the shooting part of the training face to face with the instructor. More information can be found at the online training listing here:
http://www.dps.texas.gov/RSD/LTC/LicenseRegistration/2018ocpCertifiedDpsList.pdf

Louisiana — Governor has signed SB 402 that removes the 8 hours of extra training mandated by the state to carry in a place of worship if allowed by the place of worship. It is only required if the owners or insurance policy in place at the place of worship requires it. This new legislation takes effect August 1, 2018.

At Handgunlaw.us things have slowed down immensely from the previous two years when many good changes were made in numerous states with just a few setbacks. There are a lot of bills and talk about banning this or that or taking peoples guns “Who May Be” a threat to themselves or others but most are not moving along the path to becoming law. Will try to keep you updated on those changes that affect those who legally carry a firearm to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Thanks for the update. Anything on Wisconsin and Florida honoring each others permits? A few years ago I believe WI would not honor FL because FL used FDLE instead if NICS to run background checks. My understanding is FL started also running them through NICS. Hoping WI would have added FL permits issued by XX date by now.

I have heard nothing but usually don't when it concerns WI and reciprocity until they post something. FL will honor anyone who honors them. I am not sure what check FL does.

Just to append some info: the Boulder law violates the state constitution along with several amendments in the Bill of Rights. It will get smacked down in court, litigation in process. It is another illegal and unenforceable law made by Dems. The Boulder law also tries to implement registration of existing firearms, which is also verboten in the Colorado constitution.

Excellent!! Stay on them to keep ‘em corralled as those dimwitted dims wouldn’t recognize a Constitution if it hit ‘em in the face and got shoved up their rear end!

Who is taking it to court? NRA and/or local state firearms association?

42 USC 1983
8 USC 241
8 USC 242
Start getting the paperwork drawn up to charge each person in Boulder's city council under those 3 codes.
