A senator in the Oklahoma State Capitol demanded that sheriffs disarm before entering the capital building in Oklahoma this week for their annual meeting.
“We are the people that protect these people”, says Wagoner County sheriff Bob Colbert.
After the 40+ sheriffs were given the option of either disarming before entering the building or leaving the sheriffs chose to leave.
Amazingly, even law enforcement is being demonized for carrying guns now – at least when around politicians. Why would politicians be fearful of armed law enforcement officers…even the very ones suppose to protect them?
I think only a criminal would fear an honest cop with a gun…right?
