This is what we need in every State that passes unconstitutional legislation about gun control. The founding fathers would never have dreamed of the States doing such things. The Federal Gov’t bribed the State of Colorado to get them to do this…..bought them off.
84% of all Colorado sheriffs have filed a lawsuit against the new gun law that passed earlier this Spring in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting. The sheriffs are hoping to have the new restrictions invalidated because they believe they violate the Second Amendment.
The Colorado Legislature passed two laws that are set to take effect July 1 which limit the size of the of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds and expand background checks to private and online firearm sales.
Sheriffs from 54 of the state’s 64 counties are involved in the lawsuit because believe it’s their duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution.
According to the Associated Press, El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said “We each took an oath. The line in the sand has been drawn, and we will stand united,” at the Friday Denver press conference announcing the lawsuit.
