Actually, it's almost the opposite. I don't really care for f***book, but that letter is starting to spread around like wild fire on there. Apparently the Sherrif in Crook county has sent a similar letter, as welll as folks from the Lonestar state. Also, the govenor of Texas is trying to pass a state law to prosecute any federal official who tries to enforce unconstitutional laws regarding the second amendment. I hope it snowballs!

Sir,

I am a resident of Linn County Oregon.

I just finished reading your letter to Vice President Biden declaring your stance on impending legislation in violation of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. As a former police officer, and staunch supporter of the right to remain an armed citizen, I am compelled to state my support for the position you have taken and the courage you have shown in professing it publicly. It is my experience that it is not often a ranking law enforcement official, much less an elected one, is willing to position him/herself in direct opposition to the 'higher-ups' or society's 'popular opinion'. Your letter pulled no punches and the Vice President should not have to read it more than once to know where you stand.

When I worked as a police officer, I came to many realizations. One that is relevant to the topic at hand is this...
I came to understand that when detailed to an incident, no matter how fast I drove to the scene...no matter how thorough my investigation...and even if I was able to make an arrest...and even if a successful prosecution occurred...I could never.....'un-victimize' the target of the suspect's actions. The financial and/or emotional impact of the crime could not be erased by my actions taken...after the fact!

I saw evidenced time and again the fact that the citizens were on their own during the most critical moments of any criminal act. They were ultimately responsible for their own safety. I vowed then that I would NEVER relinquish my right to self defense...the right to defend my loved ones...and just as I had done as a police officer...my responsibility to defend those that could not adequately defend themselves against the predators in our society. That 'right' requires that I also possess the ability to exercise it. Clearly, as an unarmed citizen, that ability is diminished.

Ours is not a popular position in the shadow of isolated tragedies. Ours is not a popular opinion in a culture that seeks to disarm law-abiding firearm owners, while apparently condoning the profiting from, and glorification of, violence resulting from illegal acts with firearms depicted in movies, television shows and video games. The hypocrisy and double standards are sickening, and one can only question if there is not a larger, more insidious agenda on the move.

Again, I commend you for your public profession of commitment to your oath taken as a public servant.

If you indeed stand by your words...regardless of the personal and professional cost...then every Deputy and Sheriff's Department employee should be extremely proud to work under your command.

Respectfully,

M. Otto
Outstanding letter bro!

Sheriff Winters rocks! He has had and will continue to have my vote! Time to
write a letter of thanks to him too.

Yeah, I think it's important for these guys to hear support from the folks they're standing up for.....and hopefully they'll put it all on the line when the time actually comes....and we know it's coming.

These exec. orders issued today are done to put in place laws that would NEVER be able to be passed in time for our country to be in compliance when we join the UN Small Arms Proliferation Treaty.

As part of that treaty....member nations can solicit the assistance of other member nations in 'securing' the conditions within their borders in order to remain in compliance. (aka...no US Military or direct alpha-bet squads needed to carry out the ugliness of confiscation)

....now where'd I put that rattle-can of paint for the steel?

The News has reported that almost all but two sheriffs are on the side of the 2A, the Libtard sheriffs are Multnomah and ClackamASS counties.

We have got to get behind these good Sheriffs! The only way we're ever gonna defeat this tyranny is to be organized and have people with power and resources backing us up. I gotta get out of this town...... Deo Vindice!

I'm glad you don't either Pluskat. The Lesser sheriff's letter looks like he is trying to play it down the middle, trying to please as many as possible.

Any person who has taken an oath to uphold the constitution needs to do that.


TREASON IS A BIG WORD.

I was tempted to contemplate calling in sick, but our staff is stretched thin as it is.......and with my luck, the event would be on the news, and someone from work would see me on TV....

As a native of Lane County and former Lane County LEO, I'm glad to be outa there.

.......I would have truly been surprised if the Lane County Sheriff had shown the backbone to stand up to the gun-grabbers and uphold our Constitution.

Trying to decide if I want to be stuck downtown without a rig until everybody decides to return to our rigs. Though, I do like the company.
