BOULDER - Boulder City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night at a third meeting to ban the sale and possession of assault weapons, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines within city limits.

Several amendments were discussed at last week's meeting, including raising the age to buy firearms to 21 instead of 18 - and those amendments will be considered by the council at a later date, according to the city's Twitter account.
