Dudley Brown, the executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, warned his pro-gun group’s members that because of Democratic Party victories in Colorado “there’s no sugar coating it; it’s 2013 all over again.”

Colorado Senate Republicans blocked so-called “red flag” legislation last spring that would have allowed judges to order the seizure of guns from people considered to pose a “significant risk” to themselves or others.

The bill was intended to allow relatives, household members or police to petition a judge for a temporary protection order so that firearms could be confiscated from the person considered to be an “extreme risk.”

“I got the biggest round of applause when we talked about the red flag bill, and its demise,” Senate President Pro Tem Jerry Sonnenberg (R) said of his appearance at a county Lincoln Day Dinner following the failure of HB 1436.


Come January, Democrats will control both chambers of the state legislature, along with the offices of attorney general and governor.

One has to go back to 1936 in the Centennial State for the last time Democrats enjoyed such a stranglehold in Denver.
