Colorado Counties Declaring Second Amendment Sanctuary Status At lightning Speed

Colorado Second Amendment Sanctuary Zones
Colorado Counties Declaring Second Amendment Sanctuary Status At lightning Speed

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
  • Conejos County: Passed resolution March 7, 2019
  • Kit Carson County: Passed resolution March 6, 2019
  • Weld County: Passed resolution March 6, 2019
  • Moffat County: Passed resolution March 5, 2019
  • Montezuma County: Passed resolution Feb 28, 2019
  • Custer County: Passed resolution Feb 28, 2019
  • Kiowa County: Passed resolution Feb 28, 2019
  • Fremont County: Passed resolution Feb 26, 2019
  • Baca County: Passed resolution March 7, 2013, and a second one on June 28, 2018
  • Rio Blanco County: Passed resolution May 21, 2018
  • Otero County: Passed resolution in 2013, although they commissioners and sheriff are refusing to draft language specific to HB19-1177

The following counties are considering implementing similar resolutions, and many have meetings scheduled to vote on the measure:

  • Prowers County
  • El Paso County
  • Logan County
  • Huerfano County
  • Elbert County
  • Delta County
  • Garfield County
  • Sedgwick County
  • Mesa County
  • Douglas County
  • Larimer County

GET DETAILS ABOUT THE ABOVE COUNTIES HERE:

    The problem with the law is it violates our right to due process. A bitter ex could claim you are unstable and the cops could get an anti-gun judge to take away your property. All this without due process. You’ve been found guilty of nothing and your rights are taken away.

    MikeH – I guess if we were to look at it from your perspective. Isn’t that what this whole thing is about? Liberals don’t like the constitution so they create “laws” to get rid of parts of the constitution that they don’t agree with and they just ignore it. So to answer your question. When a fake law gets made, and can not be enforced by the constitution which can not be amended. Yes, to stay as the United States was made we must ignore the fake laws that are created in order to protect the folks who are ignorant… Read more »

    A number of counties in New Mexico are accepting to be sanctuary entities as well. This past Friday, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law the first of many gun control laws. She is accusing those counties of “fear-mongering,” and claimed that the National Rifle Association is behind these actions. I would not be surprised if she uses creative ways to force those counties to comply with the newly enacted law.

    How will law enforcement know if buyers and sellers are even bothering to follow the law? These anti-gun politicians are passing laws that can’t be enforced!

    I read an article on Washington post the other night, the writer was sounding the alarm for a possible upcoming civil unrest in this country. Now, in this piece the author stated that President Trump was the sole catalyst for this dark division in the nation, and that his presidency and actions are responsible for the rhetoric concerning an upcoming civil war. PURE hogwash. The relentless march by liberal Democrats, a few turncoat Republicans, as well as Bernie Sanders and people like George Soros and Bloomberg, this march towards taking away our Constitutionally-backed God-given rights is what has caused the… Read more »

    This may be the only way to stop the ‘democratic tyranny’ the urban dwellers with large voting blocks have foisted on the suburban and rural areas. I hope it goes ‘viral’, maybe then the politicians might see that gun control is not a winning issue and stop with the passage of vote seeking gun laws.

    This has happened in California, but the commies in office are still filing new gun control laws. Of course, it’s the rural counties doing it and our votes are nowhere near as powerful as the progressive votes coming from the major metropolitan zones (LA, SF Bay Area, Sacramento, etc.). Still we will keep on fighting… and hoping for that SCOTUS case that will nail down our rights and hand these liberals a slap down.

    Colorado has come under the sway of the kommiefornians fleeing the former “Golden State” and spreading their poison across the country. The People need to wake up and realize that the Democrat-Socialists are completely sincere when they tell you that you belong to the state. They want to control absolutely everything in your life right down to where you live, what you wear and eat. That starts with “Red Flag Laws” and the National Popular Vote which denies smaller, less-populated states an equal voice in Presidential Elections, turning the vote over to the East and West Coasts as well as… Read more »

    I have always said, it will not be local law enforcement and probably not the National Guard coming to confiscate your firearms, but the plethora of unelected, unaccountable, state and federal “militarized” alphabet agencies. They, like the blue helmet brigade, can feel free to die in the line of duty at my property line.

    Speaking of illegals hiding in sanctuary cities/states….feel free to pick up the slack for law enforcement that won’t call ICE, and call them yourself to report such persons. (866) 347-2423 24 hour ICE tip hotline.

    It probably won’t do any good. The issue isn’t that the feds don’t know that a wanted illegal is in custody, it’s that the local agencies either don’t have enough evidence to hold them until the feds arrive, or are being ordered to release them before the maximum hold time due to cost/capacity.
    I don’t imagine you could get away with “citizen’s arrest” and holding somebody until the feds show up… that would likely be unlawful imprisonment, and a violation of the illegal immigrant’s civil rights.

    Outstanding! Washington state, New Mexico and Colorado for sure and I’ve heard that other states are following suit. This may be the beginning of what has been needed in this country since 1968 when the gun B.S. began and the anti-gunners got their start. We can only hope and pray that this trend will continue across the nation and that it’s not too late.

    About 4 or 5 years ago when Colorado recalled some legislators over gun legislation, I forwarded the notion that should a new civil war break out, it will probably be in Colorado or right here in River City WA.

    I can tell you that people I don’t even know, have approached me in stores to talk about these things. Maybe I give off a certain vibe, IDK, but they are talking…God forbid the day they quit “Talking” that’s the precursor to a playground fight every time.

This has gone to far and I’m glad to see some leader’s that have taken a vow will stand up for it. All the elected officials swear to uphold the Constitution and then use it for toilet paper right after they walk into office, if not before.
