Colorado AG tells sheriffs they must follow law if ‘red flag’ gun control bill passes

Colorado Watchdog – by Derek Draplin

Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser reminded local law enforcement that they swore an “oath to uphold the rule of law” in a statement Thursday. The reminder comes after numerous counties have passed resolutions denouncing “red flag” gun control legislation that’s expected to pass.

House Bill 1177 would allow family members or law enforcement to petition a judge to issue a temporary extreme risk protection order (ERPO) for a person thought to be a threat, after which the person’s weapons could be temporarily seized for up to a year.

Weiser supports the bill and said he believes “it passes constitutional muster.”

“A number of Colorado jurisdictions have passed resolutions denouncing this measure,” he said. “As some sheriffs in those jurisdictions have stated, such resolutions cannot and do not override a valid judicial order implementing state law, such as one that could be issued under an ERPO law.”

“Our nation and state depends on the rule of law. All law enforcement officers swear an oath to uphold the rule of law,” Weiser added. “I am confident that when and if the time comes, all law enforcement officials will follow the rule of law.”

Rally for our Rights, a pro-Second Amendment grassroots group, says that as of Tuesday, at least 16 counties have passed “Second Amendment sanctuary” resolutions in response to the legislation. Several other counties are considering passing similar resolutions.

The bill passed the House last week and was to be considered in a Senate committee on Friday.

El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder said last week his office would consider legal action against the bill if passed.

    Sheriffs take an oath to uphold the Constitution, NOT “the rule of law”. These Colorado slicksters never quit.

    Hello Mr. Whyyyzer, We also believe that Your Treason will pass Constitutional muster as well….Hmmm That means a rope awaits for those who believe that The Rule of Law as you call it, somehow is elevated above our Bill of Rights….

    And that means Any mthrfkr in LE or Mil who goes along with these treasonous edicts… there will be a rope waiting for you as well, right after your trial or in our doorways if you dare…

    so choose wisely guys and gals on the thin blue line, will you defend the people against tyranny and tyrants? or will you serve your masters and become fodder for their goals and desires of Hegemonic Domination…

      Well, I don’t know about you, but if he ‘believes’ it, that’s good enough for me!

    It is outright laughable that this corrupt POS says we depend on the rule of law. Where’s the rule of law for the sanctuary cities and States letting illegal alien criminals go free? Where is the rule of law when the antifa punks riot and assault innocent people? This corrupt morons only want to talk rule of law when it is one of their draconian, unconstitutional laws. Hey Mr Weiser, WHERE IS YOUR OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS?
