Colorado – -(AmmoLand.com)- It’s a battle that’s playing out across the nation: states that are pushing gun control legislation directly against the will of the citizens are witnessing entire counties push back en masse, with sheriff's standing up for the rights of the citizens and county commissioners voting to declare their county “Second Amendment Sanctuaries“.
These sanctuary counties are passing resolutions stating that no funding will be used to enforce unconstitutional laws and that the sheriff will uphold his oath to the constitution instead of enforcing laws that violate the Second Amendment. Click here to read full article…
It should come as no surprise with HB19-1177 – “Red Flag” Emergency Risk Protection Orders – looming, Colorado is following suit – and the counties are adding up fast.
Here’s where Colorado stands right now:
- Teller County: Passed resolution March 7, 2019
