CO AG: Sheriffs That Won’t Confiscate Guns Should Resign Now

Colorado is looking more and more like the next California. Colorado has decided to try to subvert the democratic election process that is outlined in the constitution. They joined a group of liberal states pledging to elect presidents based on the popular vote instead of the electoral college. Now, if that wasn’t crazy enough, the CO Attorney General, Phil Weiser, seems to be gearing up for a gun confiscation move.

More below:

Democrats in Colorado are pushing a red flag law law that would allow a court to authorize the confiscation of guns from any gun owner who someone sees as a threat.  The Colorado AG is with the crazy liberals on this one but many sheriffs are not having it.

"Numerous sheriffs have subsequently taken a stand against the red flag law, and the Colorado Sun quotes AG Weiser saying those sheriffs “should resign.”

AG Phil Weiser thinks the law will be challenged but ultimately upheld in court. He then positions himself against the Sheriffs of CO in saying they'll need to uphold that law if it goes through. The Weld County Sheriff has a different view.

“If you pass an unconstitutional law, our oaths as commissioners or myself as the sheriff — we’re going to follow our constitutional oath first.”

And the Logan County Sheriff has his own take:

Logan County Sheriff Brett Powell said, “It’s time we quit trying to put lipstick on a pig and start funding our mental health facilities, instead of trying to take the rights from our people.”

The Democrats are getting crazier with each breath but if they think the rational citizens of this country are going to let them subvert democracy and trash our constitution, they're going to be in for a big surprise. Not even the Law Enforcement folks want to play that game. They're taking the side of the people and the constitution. Well done Sheriffs of Colorado. Well done.

  1. Phil Weiser is wrong and should resign in shame. Red flag confiscation laws are being trumpeted by socialist-democrats right now because their usual gun control arguments are lopsided losers. They’ve been hoodwinked by Bloomberg’s rhetoric and haven’t read his 2018 data. It reveals gun homicides declined seven percent, firearm injuries declined 10 percent, fatal child shootings (under 18) declined 12 percent and unintentional shootings plummeted 21 percent.

    Further, a December 2018 Gallup Poll revealed that gun control is last on a list of what Americans cite as the most important problem facing the U.S. Seems government is the most important problem and immigration is second most important. Obviously, the socialist-democrats are pushing a solution in search of a problem.

    Unarguably, our government cannot be trusted with the 2nd Amendment, just as our founders warned us. The primary problem with this nationwide hysteria to enforce red flag laws is none are crafted with sufficient protections for the accused. Apparently, we’ve been deluding ourselves that the U.S. judiciary would rather let ten guilty parties go free than convict one innocent person.

    Additionally, these laws generally place enormous responsibility and pressure on police officers and judges to dispense pretrial punishment, just in case an owner might be mentally afflicted. This kind of punishment is overly severe to be based on amateur opinions afforded by all the red flag laws enacted thus far.

    Since we’re dealing with mentally troubled persons, the law should include analysis by licensed psychiatrists. Doubtlessly, we all know of judges and law officers who are far from qualified for such professional undertakings. I also doubt that they’d volunteer to diagnose mental illness if their jobs depended on doing it correctly.

    This movement makes it clear that democrats want control without responsibility. I used to wonder why leftists saturate media outlets with soothing pleas for conversation instead of acting on their clear and ultimate goal of total confiscation. I assumed they stopped short of the extreme because they know firearms owners won’t tolerate confiscation without unimaginable fury.

    Fact is leftists will temporarily settle for controlling little things like angry partners, bayonet lugs, ammunition taxes, bullet shapes and so on. But it’s still part of a common leftist flimflam. Eventually they’ll again get around to universal background checks that are impossible to manage without universal registration.

    They need a universal firearm registry because it fundamentally transforms 120 million owners into dependents. Once they know who the owners are, they’ll choose which of them are allowed to be licensed. It’s the consummate entitlement. The democrat party cannot survive without more than half the nation being dependent on the government. Leftists trade entitlements for votes. It’s the heart of their strategy.

    Justice requires that the accused be afforded at least a modicum of professional analysis and an official opinion by two or more psychiatrists. Leftists screech in the streets if denied a full measure of due process but close their eyes on the subject of self-defense by firearm. These laws open the doors to scorned partners, angry neighbors, children seeking a parent’s wealth and arrogant judges.

    They empower mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends, neighbors, judges, police officers, boyfriends, girlfriends, classmates, teachers and everyone except those actually qualified to judge mental competence. Makes me wonder about the motive for this law.

    The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders lists nicotine dependence, aka smoking, as a treatable disorder. I’m sure socialists already are piecing together another version of this law to declare smoking as sufficiently deranged behavior to justify confiscation of firearms. To iterate, socialists are not interested in public safety. They hope to disarm the governed before dispatching the disobedient.

  2. These jerk Libs are trying to eliminate electoral college and the 2cd amendment. That will be challenged in court. Seems like the Ca imbeciles whonmoved to Co are trying to have what what they ran away from.
    Thaw wall should be put around California!!

  3. CO’s AG should be arrested be CO police, charged and prosecuted for treason, then execute him for treason.
    He is supporting an illegal law, he compromised our Constitution and his oath to defend our Constitution. He has no integrity and is committing treason.
    Therefore, execution is just punishment for traitor.

    1. I agree. First they legalize pot now they want to take everyone’s guns away just because someone made a complaint of ANY kind against them? Maybe the pot IS affecting their brains! WAKE up America.

    1. Denver, Boulder and for a lesser part Ft Collins “happened”.
      Liberal ‘Coasties’ (West and East) have been moving here for years now, and the very Political conditions they created on the Coasts and then fled they now are instituting here.
      We have been californicated politically.
      And why Polis the P.O.S. is trying to sell our votes to the inane ‘Popular vote’.
      Conservatives are literally being sold down the river by our elected officials.

  4. Sorry but the law enforcement who refuse to emasculate the American people and leave them vunerable to those state leaders who have adopted Socialism or maybe even Marxism. Instead of what we have that is the envy of the rest of the world. And not being able to defend our selves against the hordes of illegal immigrant criminals will just hasten our move to everyone picking Sh– with the chickens!

    Law must enforce the laws as layed out by the federal and state government that is approved only by the people on the ballot. Otherwise the law enforcement who will not put their citizens in jeopardy should be decorated and rewarded !

  5. Colorado AG wants sheriffs to violate their oath to the Constitution? Wow. This newest Hitler is doing exactly what he campaigned on – to hell with laws and rules, he’ll do whatever he wants to install his socialist agenda.

  6. Why is it that no politician will support getting all illegal aliens out of thee USA ? Why do they get to ignore our laws ? Maybe it is time for all LEGAL citizens to take to the streets in LARGE numbers and demand that all laws be enforced

  7. The Colorado AG should resign immediately and the sheriffs should receive constitutional medals for honoring their oath of office.

  8. Wait until the next election and you will see just how many 2nd Amendment people people agree with this stupid idea.
