Colorado’s legislature is considering a Red Flag Bill, which aims to remove guns from people who pose an extreme threat to themselves or others. If it passes, police, family members could petition a judge to have someone’s guns removed for up to one year.

Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario wrote in an op-ed that it would “take guns away” from non-criminal Coloradans. He shared his perspective with Aspen Public Radio’s Wyatt Orme.
