Colorado’s ‘Red Flag’ Laws Allow for Confiscation of Guns, But One Sheriff Isn’t Having It

The disturbing reality of these “red flag” laws has been underrepresented in the media as of late.

Once again we find ourselves dabbling dangerously with the idea of amending the Second Amendment via law enforcement.

I’m speaking of Colorado, and their latest encroachment on the right to bear arms through the exploitation of “red flag” laws.  Such laws allow for citizens to be stripped of their Second Amendment rights in cases where they are deemed “dangerous”, but have not necessarily broken the law.

The potential for abuse in this system is far too great, say opponents of such laws.

Eagle County Sheriff James Van Beek said he will refuse to enforce Colorado’s new “red flag” gun control law, according to a Monday interview on “Fox & Friends.”

“I just became very, very concerned because of the whole way they went about it. It was supposed to be for mental health. It was supposed to be for taking care of people … and at least in my opinion, they went about the process totally backwards,” Van Beek said.

“They went after the people’s rights. They went after [it] in a manner that I didn’t think gave them due process because they said, ‘well we need to do these things. We need to take these things away from them. We need to take these tools away from them.’ But they never provided any kind of assistance. So there was no outlet. So to me there wasn’t any kind of due process.”

Gun confiscations are on the rise in America as of late, thanks to a great many municipalities adopting such laws.
