DENVER (AP) — No bump stocks have been turned over to Denver authorities after the city banned the accessories used in last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and injured hundreds.

Denver Police police last month invited city residents to turn in any bump stocks in their possession but Denverite reports that none have been handed over.

The ban on bump stocks approved by the city council in January was considered largely symbolic. Denver had previously banned the types of semi-automatic rifles that can be modified with bump stocks.

The council also made it illegal in most situations to possess magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition.

    Prior to Jan 26th, you could absolutely purchase a semi-auto rifle in Denver, AR15, AK47, etc, you were just limited to a 20rd magazine instead of 30rd. Denver’s assault weapons ban was complex and the definition of assault weapon meant you must have the semi-auto rifle AND a magazine over 20rds to legally be an assault weapon. If you have a 5, 10, 15, or 20 round magazine, it was just a rifle. Those rifles (AR15, AK47) are still currently legal, but if you own one, you have to get rid of the 20rd magazines and have only 5, 10, or 15 round magazines to comply with the new ordinance. FYI, before magpul was forced out of the state, they manufactured and sold/gave away 1 million 20, 30, and 40 round AR15 magazines in the state of Colorado before they left. The 20 round magazines likely sold very well to the residents of Denver. They are all still out there, just like the bump stocks.

    Tens of thousands of tiny civil wars. It could possibly take a resemblance to the french revolution, dragging those who took an oath to defend the constitution into the streets.

    I would favor tar and feathers and running them out of town on a rail or pillorying them as opposed to guillotines.

  3. Do anti-gun liberals fascists want a civil war?
