Several Sheriff's Asked to Disarm at Oklahoma State Capitol
http://www.ktul.com ^ | march 14, 2014 | Burt Mummolo

It's a building of dignity and honor, but what happened at the state capitol recently has law enforcement crying shame.

"Everybody in that building knew who we were," said Wagoner county sheriff Bob Colbert, who, along with 40 other sheriffs from around the state, converged on the capitol as they do every year to meet and greet and lobby. Until...

"One of the senators, who they wouldn't tell us, complained because we were armed in the building," he said.

They were then given a choice, disarm or there's the door.

"So we all packed up and left," he said.

Colbert doesn't know for sure which senator complained, but has his own complaints about the complainer.

"We're the people that protect these people," he said.

It’s just common sense, what with the rash of officer related shootings.
They might mistake someones cane for an assault rifle, or a wallet/pocketbook/purse as a satchel charge or something.

I see a upswing in dog shootings next month because of this.

I don’t know which is worse, elected sheriffs being treated like the rest of us or that misplaced apostrophe in the title from a news station.

Hard to believe that the journalist wrote the title as is with an apostrophe, showing the possessive tense. LOL!

They should defect to Texas! Anyone with a concealed carry license can carry in the Capitol! There are even 2 security lines, one for those with CHL’s and another for those without a CHL.

Did the Senator said he (or she) would “give his left nut” to disarm those cops?

Reporters (or should I say “Reporter’s”?) don’t usually write the final headline that gets put on their articles. In my limited newspaper experience, typically, the reporter will suggest one but the editor writes the final headline. (It could be done differently at papers larger than the one I worked for.)

How does that work? Does one just show the permit and be allowed to enter? Do you pass the gun through a metal detector?

Offensive as it is, I doubt that anyone was buried as a consequence of misuse of the apostrophe. < smile >

This is a good thing. The pols don’t even trust the cops anymore. They shouldn’t. They’ve earned the right to be afraid for their lives.

Yes.
The dogs are hardcore criminals, addicted to nylabone and snausages.
Then they join canine gangs, so obviously law enforcement must execute every dog they see.
Otherwise there’d be a dog uprising crime wave!
Then there’s the high capacity assault chihuahuas!
/ bad attempt at joke.

Yes, I did neglect to mention that.
Kinda glad I don’t have a dog anymore, deprives jackboots of one more “feel good” action they can do should they feel the need to bless me with their attention.

I don’t think they would be having any feel good moment if they shot one of our dogs without really good cause. They might need to bring out their Bradley to shut me down.

Regrettably LEOs have lost much of their “citizen good will” due to such actions as unwarranted dog shooting, SWAT and No Knock. But yes, there are many good Law Enforcement, just a lot smaller percentage than the day.

Exceedingly small percentage these days.
And anyone who says anything finds out the thin blue line has a wall of silence and shunning.

Find out who that Senator was, and campaign to have them impeached for abrogation of the 2nd amendment.

The feds always wanted us to disarm when going into federal court. I didn’t feel that the 200 pound, old geezers reading the paper at the doorway were up to the job of protecting everyone there prosecuting the Colombians or whatever other gang member we were trying, so I would give up my holster weapon and forget I had on my boot weapon.

Courthouse are just ripe for some nut job or worse to walk in and take out the two mindless security guys (usually older semi-retired guards) and wreak havoc. No better than a school.

As does VA. But we can also Open Carry.
