Common sense is one of those incredibly unstoppable forces of societal nature that we can rely on to arrive just in the nick of time, at least more often than not.

In the case of the Second Amendment, common sense is an even more vital tool of discussion.  We cannot forget that the Second Amendment and America the nation are intrinsically and symbiotically combined.  Without one, there cannot be the other, and the liberal left is starting to come around to this fact.

That is why their push for a full “repeal” of the inalienable right has been relegated to the world of backdoor regulations and absurd, heaping piles of ordinances that make owning a firearm in America a bit of a pain.  They’re not looking to get right of the right to own guns; they’re trying to make gun ownership implausibly difficult.

That’s called “infringement”, and it is expressly forbidden by the Constitution.  That’s the message that the young people of Boulder, Colorado are sending this week.

Some pro-Second Amendment college students have joined efforts to fight a new ban on assault weapons in Boulder, Colo.

It’s a city known as a haven for left-wing causes, but right-of-center students who call the region home say the ban is unconstitutional and want it reversed, including a 20-year-old CU Boulder student.

A lead plaintiff to overturn the law, which takes effect in January, is 20-year-old Tyler Faye, a member of the CU Boulder Shooting Sports club. He joined the lawsuit because the city’s new ordinance raises the age for legal firearm ownership from 18 to 21, the Daily Camerareports.

“Boulder is clearly discriminating against students who live within city limits and is preventing us from exercising our constitutionally protected rights,” Faye told The College Fixby email.

“By focusing on age, instead of on criminals, Boulder is preventing law-abiding college students, like myself, from defending themselves and their homes,” he said. “It was important to me to stand up for all of the young adults in Boulder and represent to the country just how wrong this is.”

In many ways, the State of Colorado has been at the forefront of personal freedoms as of late, with their recreational marijuana program becoming the financial toast of the nation, and inspiring a great many other states to do the same.

But, when it comes to guns, the state is a bit more divided, thanks to its shift toward a younger demographic in the wake of legal weed.  Our nation’s young people are often deeply rooted in the liberal doctrines opposing the right to bear arms.

It’s nice to see common sense making a comeback in Boulder.
