OATHKEEPER: Colorado Sheriff Refuses to Enforce Colorado Gun Confiscation Law

Published

on

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.

Growing numbers of rural counties in states like New Mexico and Maryland are refusing to enforce red flag schemes from big-city Leftist interests that dominate state legislatures.

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.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
