BROOMFIELD, Colo. (KDVR) — A list of ordinances to make stronger gun laws in Broomfield prompted passionate public comments at a city council meeting on Tuesday. The meeting, which started with a moment of silence for the latest Colorado mass shooting at Club Q, was largely centered on the first reading of nine proposals for stricter gun laws in Broomfield. You can find full details on the nine proposed ordinances here. Some involve: banning the sale and possession of rapid-fire trigger activators, establishing a minimum age of 21 years to purchase a firearm, regulating the possession of unserialized firearms (or ghost guns) and requiring a 10-day waiting period and proof of training and experience prior to the sale of firearms.
