So the Mayor of Boulder, CO banned the sale of assault weapons in his city. The NRA stepped in and litigated since the state of Colorado didn’t banned assault weapons, a locality could not. The NRA won.
About a week before the mass shooting at the grocery store, the murderer purchased an assault weapon a few miles away from the store.
Who knows if the mass murders would have taken place if the ban was still in place. Perhaps yes, perhaps no. But if the ban was state or nationwide, the odds of it happening falls greatly.
I’m not against the 2nd amendment, I’m against the sale of assault weapons to the general public.
