Boulder Massacre Followed NRA Victory Over City

Last week, the National Rifle Association publicly celebrated its success in striking down an assault weapons ban in Boulder, Colo. Five days later, Boulder was the scene of a mass shooting, reportedly with the same kind of weapon that the city tried to ban.

On Monday, the nation’s attention was focused on the Rocky Mountain college town after a gunman reportedly killed at least ten people, including a police officer, at a local supermarket. CNN reported that one law enforcement official said the weapon used was an AR-15-style rifle.

That kind of weapon was at the center of a landmark legal battle between the gun lobby and the city of Boulder after municipal officials in 2018 “passed two ordinances banning the possession of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines in the wake of the mass shooting” at a school in Parkland, Fla., according to the Denver Post. Colorado has been the site of some of the most high-profile mass shootings in American history, including shootings at Columbine High School, Planned Parenthood of Colorado Springs, the Aurora Theater, and the STEM school in Highlands Ranch.

This is just too close in timing and stinks to high heaven of a gun-grabber stunt.
