A Second Amendment advocate fighting against a Constitutionally questionable gun ban and certification ordinance in the city of Boulder say he and his daughter have been targeted and bullied as his case winds through the court system.
The city last May passed an ordinance requiring gun owners to “certify” their “assault weapons” or remove their firearms from city limits. Those who didn’t could face fines, jail and confiscation and destruction of their firearms.
The next day, attorneys from the conservative Mountain States Legal Foundation sued the city on behalf of Jon Caldara, Boulder resident and president of the Independence Institute; the Boulder Rifle Club Inc., a Colorado nonprofit corporation; a member of the University of Colorado Shooting Team, and others.
The foundation argues that the ordinance violates multiple provisions of the U.S. Constitution and the state constitution, and at least two state statutes.
