While President Obama may have used Cops as Props last week, this week brings a new chapter as 37 of Colorado’s 62 elected sheriffs are prepared to move forward with a lawsuit seeking to overturn the ban on magazines that can hold more than 15 rounds and background checks on private gun sales.
The Denver Post interviewed Weld County Sheriff John Cooke and Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee about the lawsuit. McKee explained the crux of the suit:
“We are concerned that (the law) is unenforceable and does nothing to impede criminal activity but does infringe upon the rights of good Colorado citizens that want to own firearms.”
While the lawsuit is still in its infancy according to those who’ve signed on, the Independence Institute’s Dave Kopel, a Second Amendment scholar, is spearheading the legal effort. Kopel has testified numerous times at Colorado’s Capitol during the gun grab debates. He also has served as an expert in explaining to our dear Democratic Colorado legislators how a gun works, and which part of the gun is what.
It’s expected that the lawsuit will be filed within the next few weeks. It’s probably pretty safe to assume that none of these 37 sheriffs will be standing behind Obama EVER.
