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.
Sorry. No data so far.
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.
She said he had a problem with alcohol and marijuana. The judge denied the request to take his guns.
“I think it’s a good thing. I think any other new law you’re going to have a lot of case law to determine exactly where the lines are,” said Gruenberg, a gun owner not associated with the case.
Lincoln County is one of the many counties that has indicated it would not honor the red flag law.
But the denial led state Rep. Alec Garnett, a co-sponsor of the bill, to say this shows it is being applied properly.
Gun owners at Bristlecone Shooting, a range in Lakewood, told CBS4 they are split on that.
Good news Colorado!
It appears that not ALL judges in your state will have a quick trigger to take your 2nd Amendment rights.
Lincoln County says it will not comply.
Frivolous suits and false claims can happen.
Colorado is one of several states caught up in this Red Flag Law nonsense.

If someone commits a felony, send them to prison and you won’t have to worry about their guns.
Red Flag Laws are more of the “pre-crime” nonsense that is sweeping America.
“You have to take her gun before she shoots me with it.”
No disrespect meant to my wife. 😉
That was a bad joke honey.
My wife is a saint and that red dot on my forehead is not what you think.
I’m participating in Hindu appreciation day, because I’m politically correct like that.
Yeah that’s it.
Please share this everywhere in case she pulls the trigger.
