Tom Sullivan Will Sponsor Colorado Red Flag Law / by Charles Yeganian

LEAPer and Rep.-elect Tom Sullivan will be the lead House sponsor of a red flag law in the upcoming session of the Colorado legislature, where Democrats regained control in this year’s midterms. From Michelle P. Fulcher, CPR News:

The last red flag gun bill in Colorado lived a short, contentious life. Opponents argued the legislation could be misused by people with an ax to grind against a gun owner, or violate Second Amendment rights.

Sullivan wants to talk through differences across the aisle with the help of experts. But he isn't backing down from the bill, nor is he worried about claims from Republicans that Democrats may overreach with the power of a political trifecta.

"This is what we’re going to do, and this is not an overreach," Sullivan said. "We were elected to go in there and govern, and that’s what we’re going to do."

I will be tracking this bill once it is introduced, and grading support.
