Colorado: Sheriffs Say No to Proposed Gun Control

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Late last week, the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) drew a line in the sand in defense of the Second Amendment, telling elected officials in the Centennial State that they will not support any of the proposed gun restrictions.

These devoted public servants understand better than most the efforts necessary to preserve and advance public safety interests for the community as a whole.  The CSOC also made it clear in their statement that they welcome dialogue, in the wake of recent tragedies, that relates to protecting the public.  However, they ardently assert that they “…do not believe these tragedies should be used as the backdrop to advance gun control legislation.”

The CSOC specifically cited their direct opposition to the gun grabbing efforts in Denver, being led by extremist organizations like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s group “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG).  The so-called “common sense” measures being weighed by these out-of-town extremists include a ban on commonly owned semi-automatic rifles, arbitrary limitations on magazine capacities, the ban on bulk purchases of ammunition, a statewide database for concealed carry permit holders, unnecessarily restrictive mental health checks and the criminalization of law-abiding citizens through the prohibition of private firearms transfers.

The NRA applauds and thanks the CSOC in their vocal defense of gun rights on behalf of the tens of thousands of NRA members in Colorado.

      Good for him. I would vote for him to run this nation. At least he is willing to stand up for what his right. Colorado should be proud of there Sheriff’s. He is doing the right thing.

      Law enforcement officials who understand that abiding by their oaths of office is more than just obeying orders and that protecting the rights of the people is not limited to enforcing the law.
