Red Flag ERPO Emergency Risk Protection Orders Colorado Rally for our Rights

After hours of public testimony the end of February, followed by hours of debate over amendments during the second reading last week, Colorado’s “Red Flag” Emergency Risk Protection Orders (ERPO) bill will advance Monday to a full vote of the House Chamber.  From there, it goes to the State Senate where it will face a tougher battle.

This bill is so horribly written it puts every gun owner in Colorado at risk.  It is critical each and every person contact their State House Representatives and voice their opposition IMMEDIATELY!  If possible, call and email. 

Then make sure to sign our petition in support of recalls should this bill pass.

When contacting your legislators, be aware not all of them are in support of this bill.  Be respectful, be firm, and make your point by stating your position and/or any personal accounts you want to add. Here is a quick template message that can be used or changed.

I am writing to ask that you vote NO on HB19-1177: Emergency Risk Protection Orders.  I oppose this bill because it puts every gun owner in Colorado at risk.

The extremely low threshold of evidence needed to obtain the temporary ERPO, along with the $0 cost and the ability to petition over the phone without even providing an address, is downright dangerous.  It would allow for vindictive ex’s and roommates to make false accusations – people who are somehow included in the bill’s definition of “family or household member”.  This could lead to those needing protection the most, being disarmed, and also opens up opportunity for it to be used as a “hate crime” against minority groups.  With a search warrant being issued with the temporary order, this law would create a dangerous situation where children and other family members may be present.  It also puts law enforcement in harms way as they are required to confiscate the firearms of people who have committed no crime and could easily be innocent. And it is absolutely appalling the initial hearing is ex-parte while allowing for such a low evidentiary threshold to issue the order and search warrant.

Lastly, this bill is being promoted as suicide prevention while there is nothing in it about mental health, and removing one tool of self harm does nothing to help the person.  In fact, creating a scenario where police are raiding the homes of those who may be suicidal will only exacerbate a suicidal situation.

    “Pueblo lawmakers undecided on gun bill”

    https://www.chieftain.com/news/20190302/pueblo-lawmakers-undecided-on-gun-bill

    We have a Constitutional Sheriff in Huerfano County that has previously refused to enforce gun control laws so I expect his position is still pro Constitution as it should be for all Americans. I say Constitution because that is actually what is at stake. The implementation of Red Flag laws in Colorado or any other state is in essence the abolishing of the Constitutions both state and federal. Social justice warriors declaring war on Americans who believe in the rule of law.

    Weld County 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Resolution.

    https://www.greeleytribune.com/news/tribune-obtains-language-of-proposed-weld-county-second-amendment-sanctuary-resolution/

    Sanctuary counties do not comply.

    Sanctuary citizens…………………………………….

    Has anybody seen New York Red Flag MS13 for their current threat to LE published in the MSN?

    When the criminals produce fake laws.

    Moffat County.

    Thank you Colorado Sheriffs for obeying the Constitutions.

    We stand united!

    NEXT!

  5. Warren says:

    Whatever happened to due process. Just another attempt by the Socialist /Democrats to eliminate the Constitution. The same action to disarm citizens was done by another group of Socialists. The Socialist /NAZI party.
