Boulder Colorado Firearms Registration Certification

A Boulder, CO resident who had their firearm “certified” under the city’s new “assault weapons” ban brought this to us. We’ve been wanting to see one but not many people are interested in registering their firearms.

In order to be part of Boulder’s “This-Is-Not-A-Registry” program, anyone who owned one of the banned firearms prior to June 15th, 2018 must go to the police department and have it “certified” before Dec 31st, 2018. They must then keep the certificate with the firearm at all times – forever – otherwise they’re a criminal. Lose this piece of paper? The firearm will be confiscated. Don’t comply? Criminal. Allegedly there are no copies of these certificates kept.

Requirements for certification include: Valid photo ID, the firearm being certified (unloaded and secured in vehicle), and a new background check. If the the background check comes back clear, two certificates per firearm will be issued. The cost is $20 for the first firearm and $5 for each additional firearm.”

Boulder’s ban includes:

1.) All semi-automatic center-fire rifles that have the ability to accept a detachable magazine and have a pistol grip, telescoping stock, or off hand stabilization feature.

2.) All semi-automatic center-fire pistols that have the ability to accept a detachable magazine other than in the pistol grip or has any other secondary stabilization feature.

3.) All semi-automatic shotguns that have the ability to accept a detachable magazine, or have a fixed magazine over 5 rounds, or have any secondary stabilization features.

      No one should be forced to move out of their home because of such an unconstitutional law. I know someone who will not comply. No one should comply.

    The first step in gun confiscation- registering your guns

  5. Mark says:

    Never go to Colorado

    The gun-owning residents there should just mail in bottles of fresh piss

    The City Council of Boulder Colorado and the author of this obvious criminal violation of OUR Constitutional rights to be jailed immediately PERIOD, they don’t even have that type of authority anyway!

  8. Rick says:

    well if your republican and you did not vote . Then you are the problem BUD. They will take everything unless you stand up. But republicans have a problem with voting. So if you lose your guns then you should have voted.

  9. Brian says:

    How is this different than a Poll Tax? When you have to pay and get permission to exercise your rights, they are no longer rights.

  10. Noncompliant says:

    Do NOT comply. Resist by any means necessary

  11. Kevin Watson says:

    I have a conceal carry permit. What happens when I go to Boulder?

    The democrats have proposed gun bans in many states: CA – Salwell, and NJ Rep Spallone has proposed HR 7115 which is “all parts” ban directed to PRODUCT SAFETY COMMITTEE, and includes advertisement, information/internet, sales and finally CONFISCATION. Signed by many other democrats, it is a huge – guns, shotguns, handguns – vague law – replacement parts will not even be allowed. I believe they are getting ready for a revolt – and I’m so tired of the OLD promise by the left: “no is taking your guns”. Don’t believe a word of it. All these bans include confiscation. And it will ONLY be confiscation from private citizens – as everyone else, including criminals WILL STILL OWN THEM.

  13. Joe says:

    Bad news for everyone. States are wanting to limit or remove fire arms which in the end will lead to socialism

  14. Gene Ralno says:

    Since the city will keep no records, it would seem owner “certificates” may easily be created. The city would not be able to detect violations without hiring expert examiners to perform forensic analyses. Anyone coming under suspicion would have ample time to simply — run to Denver. This whole circus was invented and implemented by a moronic mob of pettifoggers who hate guns and believe they should control the citizens.

    As a footnote, it seems the citizens are smarter than the bosses and consequently, only the very stupid will comply with this law. The smart ones will simply hunker down, keep their “listed” arms hidden until this insanity goes the way of Canada’s long gun registry and Maryland’s ballistic fingerprint disaster. Even the democrats know this is a tyrant-to-be dream intended to garner votes and not increase public safety. They know Boulder is a safe place to live and the peril exists only in their imagination.
