Colorado sheriff stands with U.S. Constitution; willing to go to jail rather than enforce proposed gun law

A new law is making its way through the Colorado legislature that could violate the U.S. Constitution altogether.

(INTELLIHUB) — Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams stands for the U.S. Constitution and is willing to go to jail to protect other Americans freedoms after a new gun law has been progressing through the Colorado legislature.

“It’s a matter of doing what’s right,” the Sheriff said.

If passed, the new law will target gun owners who are deemed to be a threat to themselves and/or others and will lead to the confiscation of their firearms altogether which clearly violates the U.S. Constitution.

CNN reports:

Colorado’s “extreme risk protection order” bill would allow a family member, a roommate, or law enforcement to petition a judge to take someone’s firearms if they are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.
The push for legislation followed the death of Zack Parrish, the 29-year-old Douglas County sheriff’s deputy killed in 2017 by a man with an arsenal of weapons who authorities said had a history of bizarre behavior, including threats to police.
Parrish’s former boss, Sheriff Tony Spurlock, has been one of the most vocal advocates of the bill and says he believes it could have prevented Parrish’s death. Democratic House Majority Leader Alec Garnett, one of the bill’s primary sponsors, agrees.
The bill passed the Senate on Thursday and is expected to pass the house this week.
