Colorado’s Grossly Un-Constitutional Red Flag Bill

Source of this un-Constitutional piece of legislation: Democrat, and darn near 100%, if I’m not mistaken. Therefore, I think it’s high time we had some perspective!

I mean absolutely no disrespect to Mr. Walsh, but let’s be objective, beginning with these quotes from the Denver Business Journal:

“Walsh (Democrat) was Obama’s second nominee for the Colorado U.S. attorney’s post since taking office. His first choice, Stephanie Villafuerte (Democrat), withdrew her name from consideration in December after a political controversy arose over her role in the 2006 gubernatorial campaign on behalf of then-candidate, and now governor, Bill Ritter (Democrat).”

“Colorado’s U.S. senators, Mark Udall (Democrat) and Michael Bennet (Democrat), had submitted three names to Obama for consideration: Villafuerte, Walsh and Pueblo District Attorney Bill Thiebaut Jr. (Democrat)”

First, I’m fairly familiar with Justice Scalia’s many writings on gun control, as well as the eloquently brusque way he communicated his sentiments. I’m certainly of less noble esquitorial reknown than Obama’s pick for former Attorney General for Colorado. Nevertheless, I remain utterly amazed at how he was able to stretch Justice Scalia’s actual and rather well-known sentiments into something that flagrantly supports Colorado’s anti-Constitutional Democrat Party while flagrantly flying in the face of both the U.S. and Colorado State Constitutions flat-out clear prohibition against infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

The greatest problem with this legislation always has been, and remains that there’s no hard and fast way of correctly or properly identifying people with mental illness. Thus, it relegates people’s Constitutional rights to the mere opinion of any practitioner, completely and utterly without due process of law, despite Mr. Walsh’s assurances to the contrary.

Certainly, one can embark on a long and arduous process to undo the damage, but there remain no protections under this bill against state seizure of one’s property and thereby denial aka infringement on the person’s Constitutional rights.

U.S. Constitution: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Article II, § 13 of the Colorado Constitution provides that “the right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question.”

While I respect your right to have an opinion, Mr. Walsh, KRDO, Colorado General Assembly, and Governor Polis, I certainly cannot agree with it, not after looking intently into the law, where I see HB 19-1177 is clearly an un-Constitutional infringement on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

It also clearly violates a number of requirements specified in the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which absolutely must take place prior to search or seizure.
