    As more gun legislation is passed......more & more law enforcement are refusing to uphold it. Colorado wasn't the first state to have to deal with this.

    The Colorado Democrats are going full throttle. They have already disenfranchised all of the state’s voters in presidential elections, and now they can remove second amendment rights on hearsay. Unfortunately this state has gone from red to blue in a relatively short time because of the influx of new liberal residents.

    The language of this bill is ridiculous

    It requires a preponderance of evidence, the same standard for small claims court, for proving a person is mentally ill.
    So basically if 2 people tell a judge they think a person is a danger to himself or others and only the person being accused says he's not a danger to himself that's a preponderance of evidence and the guy will lose his guns for a year

    The law that you ultra rightwingers are talking about is the Red Flag law. Let me attempt to dumb it down to you.

    If a person is thought to be a danger to him/herself or others and has guns, a family member or a law enforcement can take it in front of a Judge to determine if that person should have those guns in their possession of not. The Judge cannot arbitrarily make a decision at that point. The Person in question has to be afforded the option of a Mental Health test by a Mental Health Professional to determine if a danger does, in fact exist. If none exists then the weapons stay. IF it does exist, the Judge can order the guns to be temporarily removed until the condition passes which will have another court date and mental health exam. Now the tricky part. The Guns can be voluntarily turned over to either the Authorities or even a Family Member or a friend and satisfy the court order.

    In Delta County, in the Western Slop of Colorado, the New Sheriff was elected. One of his (about his only one) campaign promises was that he would not enforce that law if passed. He was elected. Now it's passed. He finds out that the State Police will enforce it, the AG will enforce it, the Governor will enforce it and any Sheriff that doesn't will end up with some Jail time fast, have a felony and a Felon cannot serve as a Sheriff. Guess what, he now says he will adhere to the law. You know, exactly what his oath of office says he should.

    If you have trouble with this law, chances are, you are either misinformed or wouldn't pass the mental exam and have to temporarily surrender your firearms. Hopefully, there is at least one sane person in your family that could care for your firearms.

    Far Left Carpet Bagger Democrats like Evie Hudak (NYC Communist) have been recalled before. The Front Range is ruining Colorado.
