Colorado's Defiance on 60 Minutes.
Colorado is one of them but, in defiance, nearly half of the state's counties have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. Colorado's Red Flag law takes effect New Year's Day. The story of how it works and why it's fiercely debated begins with a tragedy on New Year's Eve, 2017.

SNIP

Dozens of sheriffs in Colorado have dug in their heels including Bill Elder and Steve Reams.


Steve Reams: There are portions of the law I just flat out can't and won't do.

Scott Pelley: This is a law that was passed by the legislature. It's signed by the governor. Nobody asked you.

Steve Reams: That's right.

Scott Pelley: You're just expected to do your job. And enforcing the law is your job.

Steve Reams: Right. And I also take an oath of office that says, I'll support the U.S. Constitution, the Constitution of the state of Colorado and then, I'll enforce the laws of the state of Colorado. When those things are in conflict you know you have to decide which one you are going to adhere to.

Scott Pelley: Are you prepared to get locked up in your own jail?

Steve Reams: That is something that could happen. A judge could order me to my own jail. You know, I would be the one litigating that issue and we'll determine at that point if this Red Flag law is constitutional.


When you watch this, recall that DeWhine, Trump, Pence and many other RINOs have endorsed Pelley's encouragement of this tyranny.

Taken from TTAG article under the headline that "The Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement Goes National"... this post notes that there were Sanctuaries prior to Virginia, and they are certainly welcome to push the ball forward.

Posted this here, instead of Virginia, because of the "interposition" reference...that's what this thread is all about...and has been for a year plus.

The clash in Virginia over gun control has reached a new level, with proponents of a gun “sanctuary” movement urging active resistance to Democratic proposals in Richmond, citing the arguments that led to the American Revolution.

“Resistance to illegal and unauthorized government acts is not new,” said two leaders of the movement in noting the decisions by the Founding Fathers to sign the Declaration of Independence that challenged Great Britain and King George III.

This doctrine is, in fact, foundational to our form of government. Indeed, the Declaration of Independence is a document of interposition, between the American colonists and a tyrannical King George III. Its signatories — the people’s representatives — pledged to one another ‘our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor,’ believing that they most likely would be tried and executed for treason against the crown,” said the new memo from the Virginia Citizens Defense League and the Virginia-based Gun Owners of America Inc.

Their 12-page memo was both in defense of the state gun sanctuary movement that has been adopted by 114 counties and communities and a challenge to the opinion of Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring that the sanctuaries have “no legal effect.”

Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinances (SASOs) refer to ordinances adopted by some jurisdictions in the United States to prevent the enforcement of certain gun control measures that violate the Second Amendment. The ordinances typically prevent the expenditure of funds for various gun control proposals, such as emergency protection orders, enforcement of gun background checks, and red flag laws.

As of 1/07/2020, over 418 counties, cities, and towns have passed SASOs or sanctuary resolutions in 21 separate states. Illinois, Colorado, New Mexico, Washington, and more recently Virginia, have passed them in a majority of their counties. This number does not include Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, and Wyoming, all of which have similar state-level protections.


Toolkit to make it happen.
This is what leadership from national gun orgs looks like -- equipping people to take legal actions that preserve Liberty.
