Colorado Sheriffs File Federal Lawsuit Over Gun Laws

Nice to know that some in law enforcement will not bow to the pressure and will support the 2nd Amendment Rights of law abiding citizens.

(Fox News) Colorado sheriffs upset with gun restrictions adopted in the aftermath of last year’s mass shootings filed a federal lawsuit Friday, challenging the regulations as unconstitutional.

The lawsuit involves sheriffs from 54 of Colorado’s 64 counties, most representing rural, gun-friendly areas of the state.

The sheriffs say the new state laws violate Second Amendment protections that guarantee the right to keep and bear arms. Opponents are criticizing the lawsuit as political maneuvering.

The filing targets Colorado laws that limit the size of ammunition magazines and expand background checks. The regulations passed the Legislature this spring and are set to take effect July 1.

Most of the gun laws pushed by Democrats (who are against other citizens owning guns, yet typically won’t give up their own guns) would have little to no effect on nutbags who want to kill, like the Aurora shooter James Holmes. Heck, ban “large capacity magazines”? Make them. One can easily manufacture them.

A disarmed nation is a docile nation, at least for the law abiding citizens.

The law enforcement community is divided on the issue. In contrast to the sheriffs, the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police, which includes urban departments, supports the laws. The chiefs said the measures were “common-sense approaches” to protect the public “while not taking guns from law-abiding citizens in any way.”

When you read or hear people talking in that manner, you know that the idea is to take guns away from law-abiding citizens. “Common sense” seems to be a way to work around the Constitution.
