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 Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
