BOULDER, Colo. -- A Boulder city councilman has dropped his proposal to let voters decide on a proposed assault weapons ban.

Councilman Sam Weaver said the council will discuss the issue during a May 1 meeting because of a rally held in town this weekend.

He said it shows the issue needs to be resolved much sooner than Election Day.

The rally included demonstrators openly carrying weapons. It's something that went against city law, but police officers did not intervene.
