City of Columbia tightens gun control, bans bump stocks, trigger cranks

City ordinance 2017-109, which will ban the use of bump stocks and trigger cranks in the City of Columbia, passed at City Council on Dec. 19.

“I believe in responsible gun ownership, and I believe in common sense,” said Mayor Benjamin. “That’s why we’ve decided to do what our federal and state governments are either unable or unwilling to do and act by banning the use of bump stocks and trigger cranks in our city. This is not the first time we’ve taken the lead, but it may be the most important.”

Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin announced the introduction of the ordinance at a press conference on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 3 p.m. at City Hall. The ordinance was introduced at the Dec. 5 City Council meeting.
