Colorado Gun Control Law Is Unenforceable, Say Colorado’s Sheriffs.

Written by Gary North via The Tea Party Economist 

A gun control law set to go into effect in July specifies that anytime that a gun owner allows anyone to have control of his gun for over 72 hours, that person to receive the gun must go through a background check.

Of Colorado’s 62 sheriffs, 54 are publicly protesting the law. It is unenforceable, they say.

The law has other unenforceable features, such as banning rifle magazines that could possibly be expanded to hold more than 15 rounds. Anyone who owns such a magazine cannot sell it or lend it.

The sheriffs are part of a lawsuit in federal court. The lawsuit says the law is unconstitutional.

The state committee that heard testimony allowed only one sheriff to testify.

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said the sentiments held by the sheriffs are shared by other law enforcement officers like police and state troopers, who, by virtue of the fact that they are employees rather than elected officials, can’t speak up about their opposition to the laws.

We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
