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.
Weld County Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer was in agreement with Reams:
The severity of this bill cannot be overstated. The name of this bill is the Extreme Risk Protection Orders. I think that’s a façade, and I think it’s fraudulent. I think actually, this bill should have been titled: ‘The Extreme Order to Confiscate Your Firearms, Eliminate Due Process, and Violate your Constitutional Rights Bill.
Sheriff Reams will encounter various obstacles should he decide to not enforce Colorado’s red flag law.
ZeroHedge reports that “Failure to enforce a court order to seize a person’s guns could mean sheriffs being found in contempt. A judge could fine them indefinitely, or even send them to jail to force them to comply.”
However, Reams told CNN that this is a sacrifice that he is willing to make.
Since the 2018 Parkland shooting, red flag laws have been part of the anti-gun Left’s schemes to undermine gun rights at the state level.
However, gun owners are refusing to back down.
Should Colorado’s red flag bill become law, Colorado could see its “gun sanctuary” counties double down in their opposition to red flag laws.

The Left Wing Media is Leading a War on Conservatives & Hope To Destroy You
At the New Republic, staff write Osita Nwanevu called for the destruction of the GOP.
Nwanevu cited the cases of Donald Trump and Roy Moore as why the GOP should go the way the of the Dodo.
The writer took issue with the Republican National Committee’s decision to continue supporting Moore amid allegations of child molestation. He also criticized the Trump administration for its caging of children at the border.
What bothers Nwanevu the most is how the Republican Party has backed Trump all of this time.
He even tried to link Trump to the previous failed administration George W. Bush.
Nwanevu attempted to draw the comparison below:
Trump’s own rhetoric of division and exclusion was preceded by the 2004 reelection campaign for George W. Bush, which took advantage of homophobia to boost turnout from social conservatives. Before thousands of Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria were forced by the Trump administration’s shoddy recovery effort to ask themselves whether they were really Americans after all, thousands of African Americans failed by the Bush administration’s relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina posed the same question to themselves. Trump’s intimations that the federal executive is above the law may well have been bolstered by the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance of the American people. Even Trump’s efforts to integrate his companies within the processes of the state were preceded by the Bush administration’s curious keenness for contracts with Halliburton, the company Vice President Dick Cheney ran before Bush took office.
The writer also criticized Trump for sowing divisions based on racial lines.
In Nwanevu’s view, “Donald Trump is not a departure from the values defining the Republican Party, but the culmination of its efforts to secure power in this country.”
He took it a step further by describing the Republican party as “a reliable opponent of equality and a malignant force in American life—a cancer within a patient in denial about the nature and severity of her condition” that must ultimately be “destroyed—vanquished from the American political scene with a finality that can only be assured not by electoral politics or structural reforms alone, but by a moral crusade.”
The staff writer gushed about demographics, largely propelled by post-1965 Immigration Act policies, as a main driver of the inevitable political change in America.
The Left is no longer hiding their intentions when it comes to mass migration.
They understood full well its political implications, which is why they constantly brag about the GOP’s upcoming demise.
The GOP should take these threats seriously, and work day and night to re-elect President Trump and take back the U.S. House.
Trump should take the gloves off in his second term and carry out substantial immigration restrictions such as ending birthright citizenship and chain migration, fully funding the border wall, restricting pathways to citizenship, and completely defunding sanctuary cities to deny Democrats the permanent electoral majority they so desire.
The time for talk is over.
