The fight against the anti-gun movement continues.

Colorado’s Weld County Sheriff John Cooke says he will not be enforcing two aggressive gun-control laws that are currently waiting to be signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper. One bill expands background checks to be performed on consumers and the other bill limits consumer ammunition magazines to 15-rounds.

Cooke told The Greeley Tribune that Democrats are trying to find quick solutions to present to the public after recent mass shootings and the bills are “feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable.”

His reasoning for not participating in enforcing the new bills, if passed, is that he finds it impossible to keep track on whether or not gun owners are fulfilling their requirements. Cooke may even go so far as to consider pursuing a lawsuit alongside fellow sheriffs against the state, in hopes of preventing the proposed bills from being signed into law.

Just last Friday, a bill was passed that requires a $10 background check. The passed bill is also frowned upon by Cooke, who said it’s not going to keep firearms out of the hands of those who use them for evil.

“Criminals are still going to get their guns,” said Cooke.

Although Crooke has a point, it is important for law enforcement to cooperate with all laws, including gun-control laws, to decrease the likelihood of violence.
