Colorado Sheriffs Rebuke their State’s Gun-Crazed Democrats
Would you look at what’s happening in the not-exactly red state of Colorado? The Governor, who is a Democrat, and other Democrats in the state legislature are hell-bent on passing major gun control legislation over the apparent will of the people. The debate there has featured such shining moments as this from Joe Salazar:
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”
At the same time, the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs thought it preferable to advise women to urinate or vomit on their attackers rather than allow them their Constitutional right. Still, the Democrats pressed onward in their quest to rid their state of evil firearms of evilness or at least keep them out of the hands of crazy people such as soldiers.
Their overreach has met with stiff resistance in the form of law enforcement officers who have said, on the record, they will not enforce whatever insane law the gun-obsessed Democrats in their state concoct. First up, as Duane Lester reported here, was the Sheriff of Weld County. We can now add a second, Sheriff Terry Maketa of El Paso County, the most populous county in the state.
“Maketa said his office keeps records of every concealed carry permit holder in the county as required by law, but he would never share it. He said he would destroy the database if anyone tried to get their hands on it and would intervene if government agents started arresting county residents for exercising their constitutional rights.”
Don’t think for a second there won’t be others. Democrats may believe they have the whip hand in the gun control debate, but they’re about to learn what happens when they take things several steps too far.
