Posted on 09/03/2013 6:44:02 AM PDT by george76
The right to keep and bear arms may have been stolen by the Colorado state legislature, but a posse of local lawmen is riding to the rescue.
Elected sheriffs, as the top law enforcement officers within their counties, work for the citizens and taxpayers in their jurisdictions, not the federal government. Even the Supreme Court ruled that sheriffs cannot be compelled to follow federal dictates or mandates in a landmark case on gun control. Now, with Obama pushing hard for new restrictions on gun rights finding strong support from some anti-Second Amendment Democrats in Congress and much of the increasingly discredited establishment media sheriffs nationwide are putting their foot down to defend the rights of their constituents. Chief law enforcement officers from Kentucky, Oregon, Texas, California, Missouri, Idaho, Alabama, Colorado, South Carolina, Georgia, Minnesota, Florida, Nevada, Arizona, Ohio, New York, Utah, Oklahoma, and other states have all spoken out already many of them in unison. It seems that virtually every single day, more sheriffs are adding their voices to the expanding list of prominent lawmen who have vowed to ensure that the U.S. Constitution is respected in their jurisdictions.
On its website, the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) reports that 18 state sheriffs associations have signed on to join the growing numbers of faithful protectors of our freedom. The state associations that have enlisted in the fight against Obamas gun control are:
California Sheriffs Association
Colorado Sheriffs Association
Florida Sheriffs Association
Georgia Sheriffs Association
Illinois Sheriffs Association
Indiana Sheriffs Association
Kentucky Sheriffs Association
Michigan Sheriffs Association
Minnesota Sheriffs Association
Missouri Sheriffs Association
Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association
Nebraska Sheriffs Association
New Mexico Sheriffs Association
Oklahoma Sheriffs Association
South Carolina Sheriffs Association
Texas Sheriffs Association
Utah Sheriffs Association
Wyoming Sheriffs Association

Maybe so, but I wouldn't recommend towing one of these through Colorado
They may start by deputizing all who wish to be and then getting a government grant for arming them with military assault weapons through Homeland Security and making available a large amount of ammunition that the government just acquired.
El Paso and Pueblo counties need to GET OUT THE VOTE to RECALL these fascists!
Now that's a pleasant surprise.
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF
Good work by the Colorado Sheriff’s Association.
Indeed. Little known law: If one can get permission/approval from a government agency (Sheriff included) one can get a new machinegun.
Just got back from Montrose two weeks ago. The local Montrose IDPA group had a scheduled regional match that was canceled due to the new laws in place.
The Montrose group worked hard in association with other local IDPA groups to put on a state match on short notice. People from New Mexico and other locales showed up to participate. It was a good match. Attendees enjoyed the technical challenges of the match.
