    Saw a news blurb on Fox News regarding Larimer County, CO Sheriff Jim Alderden's position on CCW on campus.

    From the Sheriff's website: http://www.co.larimer.co.us/sheriff/bulls_Eye/BullEye.htm

    Read the rest of the article at the above link.

    Sounds like the good folks of Larimer County, CO have a decent, pro-self-defense Sheriff.

    Go, Sheriff Jim! I live here and didn't hear about this.

    Time to write him another letter... :)

    Sheriff Alderen is a great sheriff. He'll sign off on NFA stuff without hassle. Before Colorado was shall issue, he WAS. I've met a LOT of people in Larimer county who've had permits long before the rest of the state got em.

    Nice to hear that common sense can still be found in Colorado.

    Now this LEO is a Gent and he deserves all the praise I can muster for this public stand.
    I really wish men like him were the rule rather than the exception.

    +1 for power in the hands of understanding people.

    Is there anyone else who has noticed how we are touted 'pro-gunners' because we want more liberties for everyone who wishes to exercise them, while 'anti-gunners' are advocating less to NO liberty (at least as far as the Second is concerned) for ANYONE except the police/military (and of course criminals since they don't have to follow the law in the first place)?

    People like this Sheriff are the ones we should all HOPE to have in power around us. :D

    When I was browsing the Laramie County Sheriff’s department page looking for info on woman’s handgun safety classes for my wife, I clicked a link and got all warm and fuzzy when I start reading that page...until I figured out it was for Larimer County CO. Not sure why they had a link from a WY sheriff webpage to a CO Sheriff Webpage.

    The rest of the article is interesting too. I've posted the entire article because the omitted portion is substantial and significant.

    I'm not suggesting that the original poster had any ominous motive. I think, though, that we tend to see mostly what we want to see. Tunnel vision prevents us from seeing what we don't want to see but should.

    In this instance Sheriff Alderden described at length a situation in which he has reason to believe that the present situation with respect to mental illness and firearms ownership is seriously flawed. The person he offers as an example is a non-adjudicated mentally ill person who, he believes, should not own or have access to firearms.

    There are many messages in this forum that protest NRA participation in a bill that would tighten the reporting of adjudicated mentally ill people. Several of those messages defend a right of both adjudicated and non-adjudicated mentally ill to own and acquire guns. Do Sheriff Alderden's comments in the omitted portion of this article reflect on that dialogue?

    (It's not a trick question and I don't have the answer. I do believe that the situation is more complex than it seems to be at first glance and that it requires other than knee-jerk reactions.)

    Barf. Reading that makes me sick.

    My sheriff opposes CCW but has sworn to uphold the laws passed down from the Legislature. My Police Chief is the Mayor Bloomberg of Minnesota.

    If I move to Colorado I'm moving to Larimer County.

    I'm not sure how what he's saying is that unreasonable. I guess the danger would be if people took it to its extreme logical end. But what he is saying there seems pretty reasonable.
