The Greeley City Council is the latest in an increasing number of governmental entities considering “Second Amendment Sanctuary” laws after the implementation of a new “Red Flag Law” statewide. The City Council in a work session Tuesday night discussed a potential measure similar to one already passed by Weld County Commissioners and instructed their attorney to draw up a potential ordinance. Opponents claim implementation of Extreme Risk Protection Orders violates the Second Amendment of the Constitution, while supporters say the law should result in a decrease of gun deaths tied to domestic violence and suicides. Greeley would be the first municipality in Colorado to implement a sanctuary ordinance.

Greeley Police Chief Mark Jones addressed the new law and City Council’s move during “Mornings With Gail”. Listen to the podcast here.
