Fully 55 of the 62 sheriffs that serve in Colorado have outright refused to enforce the state's new gun laws — the requirement for universal background checks and the ban on ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.
Magpul Industries joined 54 Colorado county sheriffs Friday in filing a federal lawsuit against the state's recently signed gun-control bills.
