UPDATE: According to Kopel, Grand County Sheriff Rodney Johnson has now joined the effort.
Colo Sheriffs’ lawsuit against anti-gun laws grows to 55 Sheriffs, with addition of Rodney Johnson of Grand County.

Earlier today we reported on 54 County Sheriffs in Colorado who had signed onto a lawsuit against Mayor Bloomberg’s extreme gun control legislation.
With 64 Sheriffs in Colorado, that left 10 who refused to stand up for gun rights. (All Sheriffs are elected, except for those in Denver and Broomfield counties, which are appointed)
Unsurprisingly, many of these Sheriffs are from the hardest left bastions of the state, like Aspen and Boulder.
Contact info for each of these cowards can be found on the County Sheriffs of Colorado’s website.
Here they are:
Rodney Johnson, Sheriff of Grand County
Joseph Hoy, Sheriff of Eagle County
Kirk Taylor, Sheriff of Pueblo County
William Palmer, Jr, Sheriff of Chaffee County
Robert Gurule, Sheriff of Conejos County
Bill Masters, Sheriff of San Miguel County
Joseph Pelle, Sheriff of Boulder County
Joe Disalvo, Sheriff of Pitkin County
Tom Deland, Sheriff of Broomfield County
Gary Wilson, Sheriff of Denver County
UPDATE: It’s worth noting that all 64 Sheriffs signed onto a white paper opposing the gun bills when they were working their way through the legislature. These 10, for whatever reason, decided not to step up to the plate and fight the laws once they were passed.
