As the CO governor prepares to sign two new gun control bills, a “universale background check” bill and a bill limiting magazine capacity to 15 (and might actually ban all removable magazines) and Magpul prepares to leave CO, taking hundreds of jobs with them, some CO sheriffs are taking a stand.

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke calls the new laws, “feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable.”

Cooke said he, and many of his associates won’t bother to enforce the laws.

Some sheriffs are even considering a lawsuit against the state to get an injunction against the new bills once they are passed.

The Colorado sheriffs made a stir last week when they alleged that Democratic lawmakers in the state where threatening to cut pay/funding to the sheriffs if they didn’t support new gun control legislation.

Glad to see there is still someone left to fight for the people of CO.

We will continue to display the CO flag, upside down, in distress on all CO news stories until these unconstitutional laws are permanently defeated.
