So the liberals in the Colorado State House are flexing their muscles. They’ve approved two gun control measures. One requires “universal” background checks for all firearm transfers. The other limits magazine capacity to 15-rounds. The governor is expected to sign them both into law within two weeks.
[El Paso County Sheriff Terry] Maketa told an angry packed crowd at a meeting on Thursday he would stand firm against Democrat-sponsored gun bills that will almost certainly become law July 1. One of those bills includes a ban on high-capacity magazines.
“I can’t tell you when those were sold, bought and purchased. As far as I’m concerned, they were all pre-July 1 if the governor does sign this bill,” he said.
[Weld County Sheriff John] Cooke said he, like other county sheriffs, â€śwonâ€™t bother enforcingâ€ť the laws because it will be impossible for them to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners. He said he and other sheriffs are considering a lawsuit against the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.
