Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith says he will join other Colorado Sheriffs in a lawsuit against a new package of new Colorado gun laws. According to the Loveland Reporter Herald, the Sheriff says the new laws are not enforceable.

“People are saying, ‘The sheriff says he won’t enforce these laws,’” Smith said. “That’s not what I’ve said. What I’ve said they’re not enforceable.”

Smith said he and more than 40 other county sheriffs in the state would seek through the courts to dismantle the laws that require background checks on any sale or transfer of a firearm, whether privately or through a dealer, and limit the size of ammunition magazines gun owners can buy or possess. Denver University constitutional law professor and gun rights authority David Kopel will represent them in their challenge.
