Legislation that would allow Colorado judges to order the seizure of guns from people who are considered a “significant risk” to themselves or others passed out of the Democratic-controlled House on Friday night with almost no Republican support.

House Bill 1436 cleared the chamber by a 37-23 vote — with two Republicans voting “aye” — but not before facing another round of GOP backlash.

“If you truly care about those in uniform who protect us every day you will not take away the rights that they defend overseas,” said House Minority Leader Patrick Neville, R-Castle Rock, in assailing the measure.

Democrats argue the legislation is among the best of so-called “red flag” bills and laws in the U.S.
