A Colorado sheriff is standing up to Colorado’s red flag gun confiscation bill.
Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams said that he opposes House Bill 19-1177, Colorado’s red flag bill, so much that he would go to jail rather than enforce it.
The Sheriff told CNN that this is “a matter of doing what’s right.”
This bill is expected to become law later this week. The Colorado Senate passed the bill on a razor thin 18-17 vote on March 28, 2019 and passed the Colorado House on April 1, 2019 on a more decisive 38-25 vote.
BLP reported on Colorado’s red flag laws last month highlighting some of its most dangerous provisions which infringe on both the 4th and 5th amendments.
Additionally, BLP highlighted how Sheriff Reams is not alone in this fight, as seven other counties in Colorado are standing up to red flag legislation.
