Colorado: Judge Becomes First to Deny Confiscation Under New Red Flag Law
The danger of Red Flag Laws goes beyond the full scope of The 2nd Amendment.
There are people out there who will exaggerate or totally fabricate stories to get someone else’s guns taken away.
We might have witnessed the first case of that in Colorado.
There will be more.
From CBS Denver:
(CBS4) – For the first time, a judge has denied a request to take away a man’s guns under Colorado’s new red flag law. A Limon woman claimed a man who she had a relationship with threatened her with a gun and filed the request.
Since the law took effect, the red flag law has had many gun owners seeing red. At least four requests have been filed since the first of 2020; CBS4 is aware of them being filed in Denver, in Larimer County and this one — in Lincoln County.
Many gun owners, like Jak Gruenberg, despise it.
“Red flag laws just allow for harassment of legal gun owners,” he said.
The law allows guns to be taken away from those who present a danger to themselves or others. The decision is up to a judge.
CBS4 obtained the request for a temporary extreme risk protection order filed in Limon. A woman wrote she was getting “verbal and physical threats” with a handgun from the man identified in the order.
