A Sheriff's Response

I couldn't find this posted before so, here goes............President Obama visited Denver on April 3, 2013 to push his excessive gun legislation. Not one sheriff in the state of Colorado was included in the event. The sheriffs of Colorado representing 62 counties were kept out of the event because their legislative needs were not useful to the president. Obama's purposeful shunning of the state sheriffs could not silence them. Listen as Sheriff Shayne Heap from Elbert County Colorado responds to the president's comments.

Any bets on how soon the media will pick up this man's message and report on it?
Depends on what source. But probably little to no coverage of the statements.

How do we collect after the result is, never?

Not until Sheriff Heap is arrested, for sedition, or some such, by "agents" of the Secret Service, as outlined in the link provided in the third quote in this post.

Unless that occurs (the above mentioned arrest), there will be no coverage.

Tin foil, but not impossible, given the current clime.

I agree with almost everything he said, I am an innocent person, if someone tries to harm or kill me, I am the first responder,it's my right, it's my responsibility, it's my life. The police are the second responders after the shooting is over.
Absolutely Superb!

While I generally agree with the Sheriff, in the early part of the statement, he seems to want to eviscerate state premption and allow municipalities to make their own gun laws. I have a real problem with that, but then, CO is on my do not visit list anyway...
A friend of mine e-mailed the sheriff to thank him for the video. Here is the message traffic for your reading:

Subject: Response to Obama Video - Thank you!
Thank you for your Response to Obama Video! It was exceptionally well done, timely and cogent. As one who swore a life time oath to "protect and defend", and spent 48 years in different venues and am still doing so, I salute you. You have my respect and admiration.
Again, Thank You!

Thank you for taking your valuable time to share your thoughts. And thank you for your service! I have been working with other Colorado Sheriffs in response to the recent excessive gun legislation in Colorado. Yesterday we stood together in opposition to these unenforceable laws. I sat across the street from Obama's big show and heard how he misled the American people. He spoke of urban and city mothers listening to each other and of coming together for common sense laws. It was rhetoric with no truth to it. You need to know that not ONE rural sheriff was invited to the round table discussion he showed off or the invitation only event. We were approached by members of the Denver Police Department who wanted to stand with us against this new legislation and they were forbidden, and yet they were coerced into be a back drop for the president - an ethics complaint has been filed by officers. What the president said may have sounded good, it was a LIE. No one is listening to the other side. Please watch and share this video and promote it to everyone you know - we have got to get this viral and take the wind out of the president's big flashy show in Denver that was based on his showmanship and not the truth.

Let's get this viral and share the truth with EVERYONE! Remember, for this to happen, this has to spread in the next 24 hours!

That's a great video, although I too had a concern about preemption. The bulk of what the sheriff had to say was right on. I have passed this on to several others.
I wonder who in CO will stand with these patriots, these sheriffs, when the SS (secret service) come to remove them from their posts for failing to enforce these unconstitutional laws? It certainly wont be their legislators or the democrats. It can only be done by the people, all of us, at the polls in 2014 and 2016. How any pro 2A individual can vote for any Democrat after watching them erode individual liberties and constitutional rights is beyond me. You have seen the results of a democrat controlled legislature...if you vote a democrat in office, you deserve everything you get. Thank God I live deep in Dixie

Perhaps a day or 2 after that really hot place down below freezes over??
Great message, but too bad it has so few views. I'm going to forward it to my friends. Maybe if enough of us do that we can help him spread this important message.

Federal Framework Being Set Up To Arrest Sheriffs

^Let the games begin.^^^^^^^^^^

Bring it on. I would rather fight for our rights now while I am reasonably able, than when I am a feeble old man in 20 years.

In the infamous words of Sailor from the movie Uncommon Valor; "Boy, you just bought the whole can of whup-ass!"

The Feds are gonna be told in no uncertain terms where they can shove it if it comes to this.

This BS may, I say may fly in some of these craphole states like NY, Colorado, Illinois, Kalifornia and Perhaps Massachusetts but I highly doubt it.

It will indeed be interesting to see how this plays out. The future health of our society as we know it is hanging in the balance.
