Gun Rights Group Sues To Overturn Colorado’s Anti-Gun Red Flag Law

Published

on

According to Gunpowder Magazine, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners is fighting back against Colorado’s newly passed red flag gun confiscation scheme.

Dudley Brown, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO) Executive Director, said, “We will prove in court that House Democrats refused to respect the Colorado Constitution when they refused to read HB19-1177 at length.”

The head of the gun group cited the House Democrat’s disregard for the legislative process and due process as some of the key grievances addressed in this lawsuit.

Their disregard for the legislative process is as concerning as their blatant disregard for due process and the Constitution.

HB 1177 was recently signed into law by Colorado Governor Jared Polis. This red flag gun confiscation bill allows individuals to petition a court to confiscate someone’s weapons if they consider them to be a threat to themselves or others.

A court subsequently carries out an ex parte hearing, where those petitioning for a gun confiscation order against someone must provide evidence that the respondent presents a danger to himself or the community.

The respondent is not informed of the hearing, but still has to shoulder the burden of proving their innocence.

An RMGO press release declared the following:

[Brown] announced that Colorado’s largest pro-gun organization was filing suit to void the enactment of HB19-1177, the so-called ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation scheme, citing a violation of the state constitution by State House Democrats during the passage of the bill.

Brown and RMGO are not alone in this lawsuit:

Brown and RMGO are joined in the suit by House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, and State Representatives Lori Saine and Dave Williams. RMGO’s attorney Barry Arrington will argue before the Denver District court that the refusal by Democrat leadership in the state house to read HB19-1177 at length when requested by both Representatives Saine and Williams constitutes a violation of the state constitution. Article V, section 22 of the Constitution states: Every bill shall be read by title when introduced, and at length on two different days in each house; provided, however, any reading at length may be dispensed with upon unanimous consent of the members present.

Brown then concluded:

RMGO is committed to working with legislators to ensure the legislative process is upheld, and House Democrats are held accountable for their flagrant and pernicious violation of the Constitution.

When it passed its red flag law on April 12, 2019 Colorado became the 15th state with the law on the books.

Now, red flag gun confiscation is gaining ground at the federal level with Lindsey Graham drafting his own legislation.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
