Resistance Arises to Colorado Gun-Grabbers

Resisting tyranny is a duty of every American at not only the federal but the state level. Law enforcement officials across the country have demonstrated their patriotism by openly declaring that they will not enforce unconstitutional gun grabs by Obama, Feinstein, et al. More locally, in Colorado:

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke said he won’t enforce either gun-control measure waiting to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper, saying the laws are “unenforceable” and would “give a false sense of security.”

One bill passed Friday would expand requirements to have background checks for firearm purchases. Hickenlooper is expected to sign it into law within two weeks.

Earlier this week, Colorado lawmakers approved a 15-round limit on ammunition magazines. It also is awaiting the expected approval of the governor.

Cooke said Democratic lawmakers are uninformed but are scrambling in reaction to recent tragedies in the nation.

“They’re feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable,” he said.

The sheriff pointed out that requiring a $10 background check to transfer ownership of a gun will not prevent criminals from obtaining them.

Cooke said the other bill would also technically ban all magazines because of a provision that outlaws any magazine that can be altered. He said all magazines can be altered to a higher capacity.

Cooke said he, like other county sheriffs, “won’t bother enforcing” the laws because it will be impossible for them to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners.

The laws aren’t intended to be enforceable or to keep guns away from criminals. They are meant to advance the objective of making “law-abiding gun owner” an oxymoron.

As Leonardo da Vinci wisely observed, “It is easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.” By now, giving another millimeter to America’s authoritarian enemies is out of the question.

    Have a good time Hickenloafer and fellow Colo demonrats. Texas and Wyoming gladly welcome Magpul fleeing the tyranny from Coloradostan and its $85million boost to their economies.

    Good for sheriff Cooke, but the progs haven’t even gotten started. They are going to ratchet this thing up to levels not even imagined yet.

    It’s going to be a tough choice when some agency comes for you. Do you really fight? Are you really up to holding a gun in someone’s face, knowing you’ll most likely be killed or hauled off to some gov’t detention camp or prison for the rest of your life? You’ll be thinking “Am I standing alone? Are my neighbors as determined as me, or is this a totally futile gesture?”

    Point is, the left is serious. Are we AS or (hopefully) MORE serious, and will we stand together? Will we have the guts to say “NO” and back it up?

    …and just in case you think a gov’t can’t go rogue in a heartbeat, try using a Cypriot ATM today…

    Skyfall, you raise great points. There are a lot of keyboard commandos out there, but when the knock on the door comes, I suspect many will fold like cheap lawn chairs.

    The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to address tyranny. If this doesn’t qualify as tyranny, I don’t know what does.

    I certainly don’t want a shootout, but I’d rather be in jail than have these nitwits take our guns. I don’t live in CO, but I stand with them and will help financially if necessary.

    It ends here. Go-time is upon us.

    We need all the sheriffs in america to support the 2nd AEMENDMENT AND TELL THE DEAMCRAPS NO MORE
