Rocky Mountain Gun Owners demands Pitkin County reverse gun ban

RMGO Demands Pitkin County Reverse Unlawful Gun Ban

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is partnering with sister organization Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO) in a cease-and-desist letter sent yesterday to the Pitkin County Attorney and Commissioners, demanding that they reverse the unlawful gun ban instituted Wednesday, October 28, 2020.

More from RMGO:

“‘The law is extremely clear when it comes to banning firearms; local governments can’t do it,’ Said Taylor Rhodes, Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners.

“‘It is a real shame the elected commissioners of Pitkin County have decided to go against their oath and enact this unlawful gun ban,’ said Rhodes. ‘I can assure you RMGO won’t back down from this fight, especially considering it is so apparent they are in the wrong.’ …

“RMGO’s letter to Pitkin County cited C.R.S. § 18-12-214, which says that a local government does not have the authority to adopt or enforce an ordinance or resolution that would ban firearms from government property without following specific criteria. As of today, Pitkin County does not meet those standards.”
