Boulder police Chief Greg Testa has said that he would support a ban on magazine fed, semi-automatic rifles with certain features described as "assault rifles," as well as high-capacity magazines and bump stocks in the city.

The idea for the ban came from Councilwoman Jill Adler Grano, and her fellow councilmembers who agreed the city should look into how such a ban would work at a meeting last week.

While Testa did not comment at the time, he has since said in an email to the Camera that he is in favor of the idea, the Daily Camera reports.

The stance is a bit of a shift from Testa's position on gun laws in 2015, when he said, "If a person wants to harm somebody else, ordinances and laws are not something they're concerned about."
