Skip to comments.Shocking email: Dems threaten Colo. sheriffs’ salaries over gun control
Posted on 03/10/2013 9:42:04 PM PDT by Nachum
The Colorado gun debate is heating up. Companies are threatening to move, rape victims are ridiculed for testifying in committee hearings that they desire guns for self-protection, and potential victims are instructed to rely on rape whistles and call boxes.
Now the states sheriffs have entered the fray, expressing support for the Second Amendment, and according to El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, the officers are getting some blowback from the Democratic Party.
In an interview Saturday morning with Jeff Crank on 740 AM KVOR radio, Maketa said 30 Colorado sheriffs went to the state capitol to speak out against restrictive gun control legislation.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The media calling them the “Democratic” party is propaganda. FReepers, as well as people like Rush and Glenn Beck calling them the “Democratic” party as well, are buying into the propaganda. This needs to end.
The democrats are provoking a war.

We have seen above that the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class, to win the battle of democracy.Of course, the lefts means of winning falls way short of honest, but the end justifies the means for them.
Yes. They are.
WOW! It’s heating up here in Colorado.
Good! Go after these petty tyrants hammer and tong.
Big mistake turning on law enforcement. This has the potential to bite the lefties on their posterior if they push too hard.
I think you’re right! Looking forward to the outcome...
Nothing new here - just marxist thugs acting like... marxist thugs.
I’ll bet you that the little dirtbag Ulibarri is involved.
Maketa then referred to an email hed received Wednesday saying that the Senate Dem Leadership is very upset with the Sheriffs and their opposition to the gun control bills.
Sheriffs salaries are set by state lawmakers upon the recommendation of a salary commissions findings, he explained. But the Dems have been dangling [the salary bill] out there and refusing to follow their own created commissions recommendations. Theyve put it off now for two years.
The Senate Democrats, Maketa told Crank, were very upset with his testimony in opposition on the gun bills. And they are stating that, basically, we should reconsider our position to gain a more favorable light for salary support from the Dems.
The sheriff said he was absolutely outraged by that. Number one, the salary bill for elected officials is a mandate of the legislature. Creating gun control is not a mandate, and in this case, there is no factual basis for it. And I made it very clear that I felt it was almost bordering extortion, attempted influence of a public official, but more so that we would be sacrificing our morals and principles in what we know is the right thing to do.
Recall is being initiated against 2 more CO Dems, John Morse and Evie Hudak.

Anyone in the Colorado Springs area come to the Broadmoor Hotel tonight at 7pm. Were having a meeting about beginning the recall process on John Morse and Evie Hudak.
Weve already filed the official paperwork on Mike McLachlan and signature gathering begins next week.
We can also now take donations towards the recall efforts of these legislators that would destroy our freedoms.

Can we remove ‘shocking’ from the title? This isn’t shocking at all. This is day to day Democrat operations.

This is not going to play well in rural counties. Sheriffs are all elected officials and obviously enjoy the support of their constituents. That is also true in urban counties too come to think of it. These turds are playing with fire.
They are going to ram all of these unconstitutional laws through. 1 million protestors could show up at the capital and they would still do it. They know if every damn one of them gets thrown out of office that the [insert profanity here] Republicans will never repeal the laws. They never do.
The courts? Please, don't make me laugh.
