    Colorado sheriffs sue the state over new gun control laws | The Daily Caller

    "A consortium of plaintiffs led by 54 of Colorado’s 62 elected county sheriffs filed a lawsuit in federal court against the state Friday in an effort to overturn two new gun control bills that are set to go into effect on July 1.

    Fifty-four of Colorado's 62 county sheriffs filed a lawsuit against "...one law that effectively bans all firearm magazines, and one that requires a background check for every gun transfer when the gun will be in the possession of someone other than the owner for more than 72 hours."

    “On one hand, I’m proud to be part of this historic case,” said Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, who spoke on behalf of 18 sheriffs who attended a press conference announcing the suit.
    “But on the other hand, it saddens me that we have to be here at all,” he added. “It should never have gotten to this point in the first place.”

    HUZZAH! But I wonder about the other eight sheriffs...what's up with them?

    I hope they win big time. I wonder about those other sheriffs too. I wonder what part of the state they live in.
