Only 1 listed from Colorado; I know for a fact there are at least 2 more and as many as 6 (if none have craw-fished in the past year).

They don't have the Washington county, Oregon sheriff yet, and that's a big, highly populated county here. I was actually surprised about it.

I agree with you but lets face it, what is there to gain by publicly announcing it?

Meanwhile there is so much to lose....

I admire Sheriff Joe for his outspokenness but here in Colorado its a much different game, Term Limits included, I wished we had the voting power to turn term limits off for the Sheriff's elected position but that didn't happen because of poorly educated voters too easily swayed by incorrect political advertising.

It's definitely incomplete since Fresno County, CA Sheriff Margaret Mims isn't on there:

Cop Talk

But it is good that so many standing up, on the list or not.

Here's the full article and she is on there.

http://fromthetrenchesworldreport.co...updated/31948/

No surprise to see the NorCal Sheriffs on there and none from SoCal where CCW's are rarer than an honest politician.

I would have expected San Bernardino Sheriff to be on there if anything though but he is retiring and who knows how the new one is going to be.

A lot of Sheriffs are up for reelection this year.

And they are first and foremost politicians.

They updated the list after I posted it or I was looking a previous revision of the article. Either way, good on 'em for saying something.........

While it's true that they are politicians and some(or many) may be up for reelection, if the media is to be believed, the majority of the citizenry is for further restrictions on firearms. If that's the case, then this wouldn't help them, it would probably have the opposite effect.

Who do you think has a better idea of what the majority of their constituents want, the Sheriffs or the media?

I'd hope that the Sheriff's do however public statements like this, particularly at this time, can have an effect far beyond their respective counties which, in turn, could bring negative consequences back on them.

Well, here in western Colorado there were 4 sheriffs that stood up at least a year ago and said they would nor enforce any kind of federal firearms restrictions; including mine in Mesa County.

Add Elbert County CO

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Elber...ref=ts&fref=ts

I know many people are concerned about the recent talk of the federal government related to our second amendment rights, so I want you to know where I stand as your elected Sheriff. It should bring you comfort in this discussion specific to our 2nd amendment rights that the great majority of Sheriff’s in the state of Colorado have an overwhelming drive to uphold their oath and protect the rights of the citizens they serve. Many of you know the stand I have taken in the past when it comes to protecting the Constitutional rights, lives and property of all people in Elbert County.
In regards to the recent firearms debate, I can tell you that for years my staff and I have worked diligently not only to address school safety issues, but also to ensure that Elbert County is a safe place to live, work and raise a family. Additionally, I recently began offering concealed carry classes taught by ECSO deputies in an effort to enhance gun safety and provide individuals with high level training for their Constitutional right to carry a firearm. The Sheriff’s Office has come alongside the 4H Shooting Sports program by holding fundraisers and working with the youth of Elbert County to be safe and responsible when handling firearms. We have and continue to instruct, lead and mentor youth and adults alike when it comes to responsible gun ownership.
I feel that the national conversation has been sidetracked because the debate should not center around removing guns from law-abiding citizens. We all know that if you outlaw guns then only outlaws will have guns. I am not interested in making exceptions to ANY constitutional right. I am concerned with those suffering with mental health issues that populate our jails and go without meaningful and appropriate aid that provides solutions to the root of the problem. This issue has long been overlooked and I believe would address the source of the problem and not the law abiding, God fearing people that simply choose to embrace their rights as American Citizens.
We know, believe and stand fast on the fact that this great Country was established as a Constitutional Republic. This was because our founding fathers feared a democracy as much as a monarchy and understood that the only entity that could take away their freedom was their own government. I know that the sovereignty resides with the people and not the government. I am blessed, consider it a great honor, and I am humbled by my position as Sheriff.
As your elected Sheriff and a member of the executive branch of government, I do not determine what laws are constitutional. However, know that I will utilize any and all legal means available to stop the federal government from encroaching on any of our constitutional rights as Americans. Our right to keep and bear arms is absolute!

Sheriff Shayne Heap


Mine isn't on the list but its ok I know where he stands.

Well, it has to be said......so here goes.


We can't have LE "cherrypicking" what laws they will or will not enforce lest anarchy soon ensue. This is a very slippery slope and being LE does not = Constitutional lawyer, let alone some pseudo grand arbiter of justice. That's why we have a Court system in place.

That said, if one can't undo a great wrong at the ballot box then maybe it's time to reach for the cartridge box and change the Gov't.

While I understand your sentiment, the fact of the matter is that every minute of every day law enforcement officers from the lowliest meter maid to the Attorney General of the US "cherrypick" which laws they will and will not enforce. It's the nature of the system.
