Rocky Mountain Gun Owners File Suit Against Colorado’s ‘Red Flag’ Law

in informationwar •  6 months ago


A gun-rights group in Colorado sued Democratic Gov. Jared Polis Thursday over the state’s “red flag” gun law, alleging the process used to pass the bill violated the state’s constitution.

The suit was filed by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO), and Republican Reps. Patrick Neville, Lori Saine and Dave Williams, according to court documentsobtained by Colorado Public Radio.

The law, dubbed “red flag,” was signed Apr. 12 after the passage of H.B. 1177. It enables family or authorities to ask the court to remove guns for up to a year from someone deemed dangerous. Some sheriffs have publicly vowed not to enforce it.
