My Sheriff speaks out!

My initial plan for this post was to copy and paste Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith's statement frome facebook and paste it here..then I decided there may be an infringement there,so I backed up.

The statement is also posted on Bear Arms facebook page,of Windsor,Co

The sheriff of neighboring Weld county,Cooke,I believe his name is,has taken a similar stand.

Sheriff Smith sees his job as defending the Constitutional Rights of the people in Larimer County.He states what he will refuse to enforce.

Sorry I am not telling you more,but I do not want to corrupt his message by misquoting him.

He also clearly states the universal background check could only be implemented and enforced with universal gun registration.

This has hit the news,so a search should get you the media's version.

If you want the original,try fb for Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith,or try a search for Bear Arms,Windsor,Co.

It is worth a read and gives me a different perspective on the role of Sheriff.

Get to know your Sheriff,and be sure he knows what you believe in.Thanks

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

A link to the "Bear Arms facebook page,of Windsor,Co" would help.

Justin Smith replaced term-limited Jim Alderden.

Alderden replaced fellow Republican Shockley by running on a ticket of must-issue CCW. (Shockley wouldn't issue.)

Alderden then spearheaded the effort at the Colo. Legislature to get shall-issue CCW passed. He spoke as the head of the Colorado Sheriff's association.

While Sheriff Smith might be difficult to pin down on just what he defines as unConstitutional gun laws, we have a darn good track record in this county of protecting gun rights.

I just wish our legislators at State and Federal level hadn't been able to gerrymander the gun rights block's- representation away at those levels.

It will be interesting to see how Law Enforcement lines up on the issue across the country.
