    Just got an email alert from the NRA. This is a 5 page .pdf from the Sheriffs in Colorado. Basically 62 Sheriffs are going to oppose any new gun control legislation. Well written and worth the read. Hopefully other states will follow suit!!

    Good. I think its about time that local and state agencies started telling the federal govenment when and if they want their input on things!

    Glad I moved to Colorado. You'd only see a handful of sheriffs in California support the 2A.

    It is opening for me. Maybe right click and save. It is an Adobe Acrobat .pdf

    Great letter and I'm sending it to my brothers who live in the Springs in case they haven't seen it. Now to get Iowa sheriffs on the ball.

    Any idea which two counties did not participate?

    El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa has come out on the Sheriff's web page saying that he will not enforce any new laws that violate the 2nd Amendment.

    I'll take a wild guess and say Boulder and Denver Counties.

    Thankfully my county's Sheriff is on board!

    I just sent an email to the Sheriff of Arapahoe county to ask the question of which 2 counties aren't represented. I am assuming it is Boulder and Denver as well. I find it amusing that Magpul's facility is in Boulder!!

    I'm very glad of the perspective demonstrated by the LE in my county and state.

    Local news was reporting that Sheriffs in the Denver metropolitan area were FOR the bans. This is where most of the population of Colorado reside.

    Colorado Sheriffs issue strong pro-gun position statements

    While this is not a direct "comittment" to "not enforce" new gun laws, I was delighted to find that the County Sheriffs of Colorado are saying what we've been saying all along:


    Hell, I could have written that myself. Maybe your Sheriff should read this.

    I was a supporter of mandatory background checks on private sales until now. If all the Sheriffs in Colorado, law enforcement professionals who presumably know their stuff, say it won't help and will be unenforcable, who am I to disagree?

    Just got a response from the Sheriff in Arapahoe and apparently Broomfield and Denver don't have an elected Sheriff. That is why Colorado has 64 counties and only 62 Sheriffs represented on the document.

    Also, if folks are not doing so - please use the Contact form to send them a thank you note. Sending out letters doesn't always have to be of the "don't you dare..!" variety, and it's good to let your officials know that you appreciate them representing you well.
