It doesn't matter how many laws we make, nutters like Aldrich always find a way to commit mayhem. That's among one of the many reasons law abiding folks need to have the right to own firearms to protect themselves.Colorado has laws designed to prevent dangerous people from buying guns – and yet they did not stop the deadly massacre at an LGBT+ clubwww.independent.co.uk
But the sheriff's department in El Paso county, where Mr Aldrich was arrested, has declared itself politically opposed to the law and refuses to let its officers petition for such orders except in special circumstances.
In 2019, it joined nearly 2,000 counties across the US in declaring itself a "Second Amendment Sanctuary", saying the red flag law "infringes upon the inalienable rights of law-abiding citizens".
If politically motivated law enforcement refuse to enforce the law then bad things happen. The sherriff should be tried as an accessory.
