Colorado: “Red Flag” Bill Sent to the Governor after House Concurs, Demand VETO

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- This week, the Colorado House Concurred on House Bill 1177, legislation that could derive an individual of their Second Amendment rights without due process.  HB 1177 now heads to the desk of Governor Jared Polis for his consideration.  Please contact Governor Polis and strongly urge him to VETO House Bill 1177.

Take Action Button

House Bill 19- 1177: This extreme risk protection order or “red flag” bill is sponsored by Majority Leader Alec Garnett (D-Denver) and Representative Tom Sullivan (D-Centennial), as well as Senators Lois Court (D-Denver) and Brittany Pettersen (D-Jefferson). It would authorize the seizure of firearms from individuals without due process.  The petition can be originated by a broad class of individuals, to include roommates and anyone you've had an “intimate relationship” with.  Unchallenged statements made by a petitioner before a judge, alleging that someone is a danger to themselves or others in an ex parte proceeding — prior to any formal court hearing at which the respondent can be represented by counsel and present counter evidence — would be sufficient for law enforcement to enter that person's home and confiscate their private property.

Again, please contact Governor Polis and strongly urge him to VETO House Bill 1177.

    ONCE THEY confiscate all guns they will allow those waiting in the shadows to come and take over the land for them. Then the owo will walk in and make this a third world country. but those that kill the white people unless they convert will also push all gays off roofs before the whites! That means our new gov will need to run for his life!

    At some point I believe the liberal portion of our population will wake up and realize that they are giving up their freedoms also! I am hoping that they will then join us in a combined effort to stop the governments infringement of our Rights! Maybe I am dreaming, but surely they see this happening to us all!

    Colorado has gone to the left with so many people moving here from California and bringing their Communist politics with them. The “Red Flag” Laws(?) are nothing more than legalized SWATTING and deprive the victim of his/her Constitutional Rights such as the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth Amendments of the US Constitution as well as parts of the Colorado State Constitution. A person can have a disagreement over just about anything and call the police about a gun. The police show up at the victim’s house and demand his/her guns. If the subject survives the encounter, he/she has to prove to… Read more »

    Lets see this bill pass! According to news reports, several law enforcement officials have testified for this bill
    LEO and their sheriffs who don’t want to enforce this measure should seek other employment. You are with us, or you are against us. The governor himself commented that he himself believes sheriffs are committed to enforcing laws approved at the Capitol. Already, we have had 13 state pass a similar bill.

    TGWD, if you believe so strongly in everyone complying with the law, why aren’t you ranting about “sanctuary” cities and states that have “legalized” Marijuana. Last time I looked, federal law supersedes state law. That being the case, the federal 2A supersedes state law, too, meaning “shall not be infringed”. Ergo, making ERPOs illegal, too. That also means that the sheriffs that are not enforcing a unconstitutional law are abiding by their oaths of office by abiding by the constitution that supersedes these illegal and unconstitutional laws. That also means that those that promote and pass these laws are not… Read more »

    Not so fast GWD. Some will stand by and support the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Colorado from unconstitutional laws. “I, John B. Cooke, do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Colorado, the Home Rule Charter for Weld County, Colorado; the Ordinances of Weld County, Colorado, and that I will faithfully perform the duties of the Office of County Sheriff, of the County of Weld, State of Colorado, upon which I enter.” This oath did not require Sheriff Cooke to enforce all… Read more »

    TGWD. How would you like a red flag called on you. Or, someone you liked, if there are any. Do you have attorneys on retainer, do you have nothing to fear, do not have anything worth keeping?

    He admitted a day ago he doesn’t own any guns. He’s a troll.

    It’s no one’s business if I own any guns as there are not any laws requiring. disclosure in the state I reside in. I follow and comply with our federal, state, and local laws.

    You’re the one who admitted you don’t own any. Your original post was rediculous.

    Let me help you with your memory from the other day:

    “…..as for guns I do not own any…”

    Remember that? After that you rambled on about not having to register something you didn’t own in the State you live in.

    You’re a fraud and a troll.

    @GWD, FEAR OF WHAT IS RIGHT! What are you afraid of? I will tell what I fear, the erosion of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights without due process in which the foundations of this country have existed upon for over two centuries. The re-interpretation, and the re-defining of these original documents is a perverted insult to the legal citizens of the United States. Many U.S. Families, including mine, since the inception of these documents have shed their blood to protect these foundations, and continue to do so in the present day. Our forefathers did not arm the American… Read more »

    I think that the green rat fink is not from this country. His English is terrible, and he has no understanding of this nation’s basic legal principles. Nor is it foreign to him to attempt to mis-use the power of the state to accomplish his personal goals. This all adds up to “not an American”.

    Does matter from what country I was originally from? Very much legally here. I have question for Vanns 40 and you? I want to know the number and type of guns each of you are possession of, and also the serial number of each weapon. Have that data for me by the end of this week.

    The green rat fink is not a natural born citizen of this country; owns no firearms; and lives in Ok. Yet he advocates the reduction of Constitutionally enumerated Rights; statutes that empower government; and in a state that he is not domiciled.
    So what are his motivations?

    Oh look, the non-gun owning troll has reappeared! Your new motto should be “I don’t own a gun and I damn sure don’t want you to own one either”. This is where far Left loonies show their true colors. They parade around trying to make everyone believe they care about others but all they really want is further government control over citizens lives. Offer to debate them in an open forum and they always weasel out of it with one excuse or another. Of course the real reason is they know they wouldn’t last five minutes under strict scrutiny of… Read more »

    @ Vann 40 Up till a few days ago this Green Rat Fink claimed to have guns and he supported using them with extreme care, Now the lying scum says he don’t have any, then said it is none of anybody’s business what he has. I still have doubts if he even lives in this country and that his whole history of posts are just lies. I sure wouldn’t want to be living anywhere close to him. He just posts here to play games and piss people off. Nothing but pure scum.

    The representatives at the capitol took an oath to uphold the constitution as well. Does that not apply to them? Unconstitutional period. Protect the individual from the majority.
