Elbert County, Colorado, Sheriff Responds to State Legislators, Obama
Obama visited Colorado yesterday, congratulating our elitist legislators on the outstanding job they did of quashing the Constitution (both State & Federal) and passing ridiculously draconian gun control laws that will transform law-abiding citizens into criminals, and chase away nearly a billion dollars in revenue from our state. Nice work guys. Oh, and by the way, thanks, King Obama, for coming to rally your troops. I know both you and they are very proud.
Meanwhile, over a dozen Colorado Sheriffs held a press conference, voicing their opposition to these newly passed laws. One of them, Shayne Heap, Elbert County Sheriff accuses Obama of exploiting the recent tragedies in Colorado and Connecticut.
In the video below, Sheriff Heap eloquently expressed his views, saying that these laws border on ‘legislative abuse’ (remember this is the same legislature that forbade these Sheriffs from testifying during their hearings prior to passage of the bills). He also noted that these laws would have had no effect on the recent shootings in Aurora, Colorado, and Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. Criminals tend to not obey laws, so why are we demonizing law-abiding citizens?
Heap said that we need statesmen, not politicians, to work in these legislatures. Statesmen who will abide by and have respect for the Constitution & their oaths of office.
I could not agree more! These grandstanding liberal elitist politicos, who often cite inaccurate data, or “facts” that are invented of whole-cloth (or their imaginations), must, at the very least be recalled, if not prosecuted for their treasonous behaviors. (Sorry, that’s my opinion, not necessarily that of Sheriff Heap.)
Grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy this honorable lawman’s diatribe. Thank you for your service and your patriotism, Sheriff Heap!
