Colorado Sheriffs Refusing to Enforce New Gun Control Laws

Fifty-five of Colorado’s sixty-two sheriffs are ignoring new gun control laws they consider unenforceable, such as restrictions on magazine capacity.

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke says it’s “not his job” to arrest law-abiding gun owners on unconstitutional grounds.

“They’ve turned law-abiding citizens into criminals,” Cooke said. “They banned magazines that hold more than 15 rounds and what they’ve said is that any magazine that can be readily converted to hold more than 15 rounds is illegal. Well, that’s 99.999 percent of all magazines. They have a base plate and a spring that you can remove to repair or clean. If you can do that, then that magazine is illegal to possess after Jan. 1, and you can’t buy any. How do we enforce that?

The answer, at least in Colorado, is: “we don’t.” They don’t enforce laws written by hysterical gun-grabbers who have never held a firearm and don’t understand how they work. It’s up to the feds to do something about it–although I doubt they as much political courage as these sheriffs.

Civil disobedience at its best.
