“EEEEK! It’s a gun!!” [Darleen Click]
I got a grim chuckle out of this
The annual meet and greet is a chance for sheriffs and legislators to come together and discuss the needs of the state as well as an opportunity to just to get to know each other better. It took place this year in the same location it has in previous years, the Oklahoma State Capitol.
One thing was different this year that had a major impact on the event. An anonymous senator requested that the sheriffs be asked to disarm. Even in Oklahoma, gun-grabbing fever is rearing its ugly head.
The Oklahoma sheriffs didn’t disarm. They decided that it was time to end the meeting and all forty walked out.
Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert was miffed, as were the others. “We’re the people that protect these people,” adding, “If the state troopers are satisfied that we’re ok in that building I’m pretty sure that the legislators should have something else to worry about such as the economy or something.”
I actually want this kind of thing happen to more law enforcement until Police Chiefs support the Second Amendment for all citizens.
