On April 5, 2018, Boulder City Council passed its first reading of a ban on nearly every semi automatic firearm in city limits. The ban also includes bump stocks and all magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Despite more than 80 percent of the people who spoke that night opposed to the ban, city council then passed the ordinance on second reading on May 1.

If this ordinance passes third reading, all owners of banned weapons will be required to obtain a certificate of ownership from the Boulder Police Department or surrender their weapon(s).  No new purchases or possession will be allowed in the city limits.

All bump stocks and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition will be required to be surrendered to the police.

The only exceptions to the ban are for active law enforcement, military or anyone possessing a federal firearms license.

I have already organized several successful Rally for Our Rights protests including one in Boulder, which brought out more than 500 people in the snow for a peaceful demonstration in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.

However, my work is not done. I have good reason to believe that Moms Demand Action and several of the Boulder City Council members have violated open meetings laws to conspire on this ordinance, as well as possible other violations in their efforts to take away your rights under the United States Constitution.

Because of that, I filed a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request for emails between city elected officials, certain city employees and Moms Demand Action leaders.

The city of Boulder wants more than $1,200 to fill that request. I believe this is a stall tactic and a way to discourage me from getting at the truth. As a single mom fighting for my children’s future, this level of financing to keep all our rights in tact is out of control on the part of the city of Boulder.

So I am asking for your help in funding my cause to get access to those emails and to keep fighting the fight down the road, as I’m sure more expenses like this one will pop up.

Please donate what you can any little bit helps.

I am a single mom of three daughter that got involved in politics about a decade ago as the founder of the Northern Colorado Tea Party. Since then, I've been active in public policy and constitutional issues throughout the years.
Independence Institute President Jon Caldara has called me a "civil rights activist."
Currently that is the main role I'm playing in fighting back against Boulder's Anti-Gun ordinance.
