Since he took office in January, Gov. Jared Polis has proven himself to be the man we thought he would be. He’s generally pursued the agenda he talked about on the campaign trail last year. And, much to our delight, he has so far kept his promise to pay attention to Pueblo and other parts of Colorado outside the Denver metro area following his election.
Having said that, his comments at a news conference earlier this week were kind of frustrating. Polis essentially said that local law enforcement officials are free to make the so-called “red flag” legislation a low priority if it becomes law.
“Every law enforcement agency has limited resources and they do have to prioritize what they choose to enforce or not enforce,” he said.
