    Sheriffs Suing Own State Over Guns

    Revealing the disconnect between Colorado politicians and the law enforcement officers who are charged with making sure the state’s laws are followed, more than half of the sheriffs in the state are planning to file a lawsuit against recent gun control laws passed by Democratic lawmakers.

    The lawsuit was announced by Weld County Sheriff John Cooke on Tuesday. Cooke has previously publicly said he will not be enforcing the new gun control laws because he believes they are unconstitutional.

    While politicians may pass the laws, law-enforcement officials are the ones who have to deal with the real-world implications of putting the new laws into effect. Because of this, 37 of the state’s 62 sheriffs have announced their plans to file a lawsuit against the new laws, saying they are unconstitutional and unenforceable.
