The man who gunned down 10 in a Boulder bloodbath had purchased his weapon, an AR-15 type assault weapon, only six days prior.

Only 10 days prior to that, the city of Boulder lost a lawsuit banning the purchase of assault weapons. 

Boulder voters passed the ordinance in 2018 with the goal of limiting the purchase of rapid-fire weapons capable of firing multiple rounds of ammunition.
