Nevada Sheriff to Enforce Red Flag Laws

Nevada Sheriff to Enforce Red Flag Laws


With the rapid spread of Second Amendment sanctuary cities in Virginia, it’s easy to forget that some elected law enforcement officers still adhere to the, “just following orders” excuse for enforcing unjust laws.

This appears to be exactly the case in northern Nevada, where sheriff Mike Allen of Humboldt County recently declared the following:

“I might not like the law, but I’ll still confiscate your guns.”

This was the headline quote allegedly made by Sheriff Allen according to Law Enforcement Today in their most recent article. The author then continues on quoting Allen’s response to the question of how he would fulfill a no-knock, red flag warrant on a gun owner who refused to turn over their firearms. He responded, “It would depend on the circumstances. There are always other ways, that if we had to fulfill the warrant, there are other circumstances we could take into consideration. A lot of times, we can wait until they leave, surveillance, but if we have a legal warrant...”


This attitude of just following orders initially seemed to be turning around in a town hall meeting where he and his command staff were recorded stating, “Nobody is coming into your house and taking your guns.”


However, when confronted by an individual at this same meeting who stated, If you come to my house in the middle of the night, with my wife sleeping next to me, my kids are asleep in their room, and you kick in my door, what do expect me to do? Have I been charged with a crime? No. I have been accused anonymously and a judge has just leveled a sentence of possible death on me.”

Sheriff Allen meekly replied, “I understand.”

In response to the two unnerving statements, his constituents filed a petition to have him recalled.

After being notified by his county clerk, Tami Spero, Allen and one captain Sean Wilkin “thumbed through” these petitions in direct violation of Nevada state law NRS 293.126.7.


Apparently, Allen and his cronies are more concerned with retaining their positions than following the U.S. Constitution. This should be concerning for all Americans, but especially Nevada residents whose lives may one day be ruined (or taken) by an administration that will openly violate the U.S. Constitution.

Hopefully the recall will either remove Allen from office, or compel him to act properly. Either way, stay tuned to Firearms News for the latest on this, and other breaking Second Amendment news.
