CANON CITY, Colo. - Cañon City has joined the list of Colorado cities and counties opposing the controversial red flag bill.
On Monday night council members voted 4-3 to declare a "second amendment preservation status" for the city.
El Paso County passed a similar preservation status last week, opposing the red flag bill. During the El Paso County Commissioners meeting, Sheriff Bill Elder said the bill does not focus on mental health. If signed into law, El Paso County expects to challenge it in court.
The red flag bill allows law enforcement to seize someone's firearms if they're deemed dangerous to themselves or the public.
The bill would allow family or law enforcement to seek a court order to have guns seized if they believe the gun owner poses a threat.
On Tuesday Huerfano County will vote on whether or not they will become a Second Amendment sanctuary designation.
