Rally For Our Rights – BACK TO BOULDER!
June 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Enter our “Mystery Giveaway” to help fight Boulder’s Assault Weapons Ban!
Winner will be announced within 24 hours of the rally!
On May 15th, 2018 Boulder City Council passed an overreaching and oppressive “assault weapons” ban. This ban does nothing to address public safety, but instead turned thousands of law abiding citizens into criminals themselves. And we are not happy! Hundreds of gun rights supporters have already taken to the streets of Boulder prior to the passage of this ban – and now we’re going back!
Join with your fellow Second Amendment supporters at “Rally For Our Rights – Back to Boulder” – a demonstration in support of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms!
Saturday 06/09/2018 – 1 to 4pm – Central Park Boulder, Colorado. RSVP on Facebook here: facebook.com/events/448637628899304
This will be a non-permitted event exercising our First Amendment right to protest on public sidewalks and the public park. There will be no speakers or set agenda. We will be lining Broadway St at the intersection of Canyon Blvd near Central Park (which can be used as overflow if needed). We will carry flags, banners, and signs.
Please do bring:
– Signs, lots of signs! Focus on the issue at hand in Boulder, the gun ban and how it has affected law abiding gun owners!
– American, historical, and patriotic flags
– Banners and signs supporting gun rights and the 2nd Amendment.
Please do not bring:
– Confederate, Anarchy, Trump, or other political propaganda flags
– Off topic signs or banners, or anything advocating or attacking a particular political party or ideology beyond the Second Amendment
This is a single focus/issue event with participants from various political parties and with differing ideological beliefs. Please be respectful and courteous to your fellow Second Amendment supporters.
This is not an open carry protest, but you can open carry if you’d like! It is legal in Boulder to open carry a holstered firearm. According to Boulder law, long guns and rifles should be in a clearly marked (or clear?) case. Concealed weapons need to be permitted. This is current Boulder law, and we always encourage everyone to act in a lawful manner. If you do choose to engage in civil disobedience against the Boulder AW ban by openly carrying a rifle you will not be turned away but do so of your own volition and are cognizant that there may be potential consequences. You can also purchase a clear rifle bag for less than $8 and open carry a rifle within the law of having it in a case.

We will meet at the corner of Broadway St and Canyon Blvd, near the Bandshell, and spread out from there. There are several parking structures downtown for parking as well as on street parking all over downtown.
Feel free to share this invitation with your friends and other interested parties. It’s time to fight back and make our voices heard. We hope to see you there!

What’s next with the ban?
Within 24 hours a lawsuit was filed suing virtually the entire city government from the mayor and city manager to the city council and chief of police as defendants, arguing the ordinance violates not only the state and U.S. Constitution but also at least two Colorado statutes.
