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.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
