"When some of my friends have asked me anxiously about their boys, whether they should let them hunt, I have answered, yes - remembering that it was one of the best parts of my education - make them hunters."

Henry David Thoreau, 1854

“A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.” - Robert Boatman

Colorado sheriffs won't enforce governor's gun laws


Paul Bedard

Washington Secrets
The Washington Examiner
In a stunning rebuke to gun control laws just signed by Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, several state sheriffs say they won't enforce the new rules because they say it robs weapons from law-abiding citizens--but not criminals.
Calling Second Amendment rights more important than a rush to soothe citizens outraged . . . [snip]
The rebuke comes on the heels of a position the state sheriffs association took to reject national gun control out of concern it unconstitutionally limits the types of weapons state citizens are allowed to have.
According to the Steamboat Today, Moffat County Sheriff Tim Jantz said that there is nothing requiring him to enforce every state law.

Sheriffs against enforcement of new gun laws

-From the Chanel 8 News page (HERE)
Routt County Sheriff Garrett Wiggins and Moffat County Sheriff Tim Jantz say they will not enforce gun-control measures signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper on Wednesday.


 Similar opposition to such laws has been voiced by several other sheriffs in Colorado, including Sheriff Stan Hilkey of Mesa County and Sheriff Lou Vallario of Garfield County.

Read the entire artilce (HERE)

AND THIS JUST IN: (from  Moe Lane)  Links are underlined

  • Weld County Sheriff John Cooke: “The sheriff told the [Greeley Tribune] that he and other county sheriffs “won’t bother enforcing” the laws because it won’t be possible to keep track of how gun owners are complying with the new requirements.”
  • El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa: “Maketa said his office keeps records of every concealed carry permit holder in the county as required by law, but he would never share it. He said he would destroy the database if anyone tried to get their hands on it and would intervene if government agents started arresting county residents for exercising their constitutional rights.” El Paso County, by the way, is the most populous county in Colorado (yes, even larger than Denver County, which does not have an elected sheriff).

Colo. Sheriff Refuses to Enforce Gun-Control Bills

A Colorado sheriff says he won't enforce two aggressive gun-control measures waiting to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke told The Greeley Tribune
( http://bit.ly/141Ee2z ) that Democratic lawmakers are scrambling after recent mass shootings, and the bills are "feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable." [snip]

The sheriff said he "won't bother enforcing" the laws because it would be impossible for officers to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners — and he and other sheriffs are considering suing the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.

From fellow blogger Seamus M.

     It sounds like Colorado Democrat Senator Evie Hudak would rather that victims of violent crime subject themselves to the depradations of their assailant rather than stand up to them.  So ladies and gentlemen, I ask you- are you going to throw yourself on the mercy of a murderer, mugger, rapist?  Or are you going to stand up to them and say, "Not only no, but HELL NO!"  (and by 'them', I mean rapists, murderers AND legislators who seek to disarm law-abiding citizens preferentially over criminals.)
