Lawsuit Against Boulder County, CO “Assault Weapon” Possession, Sale, and Transfer Ban

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is suing Boulder County to overturn their ban on the possession, sale, and transfer of so called “assault weapons.” We are also suing Louisville, Boulder, and Superior to overturn their so called “assault weapon” and magazine ban. Both parties have agreed to move forward with these cases at the same time because of their similarities and all the municipalities have agreed to stay enforcement pending resolution of the preliminary injunction motions.

With the decision handed down in Bruen, laws like these will now need to find their justification in the history, text, and tradition of the Second Amendment. These laws and ordinances ban firearms that are in common use throughout the United States in violation of the rule set forth in Heller.

Colorado is in the 10th Circuit of the US Court of Appeals. A victory here will establish good legal precedent throughout the entire circuit including WY, UT, NM, OK, and NE.
