your huddled gun nuts ...'
Sheriff Jim Hensley's letter to Vice President Joe Biden, as reported on KTVZ's website, states "it is the position of this Sheriff that I refuse to participate, or stand idly by, while my citizens are turned into criminals due to the unconstitutional actions of misguided politicians."
Well, it looks like Hensley has unwittingly made the case for Central Oregonians to own any kind of firearm to protect themselves against this law enforcement lunatic, with access to all kinds of firearms, who believes he is above the law of the land.
Hensley, evidently, is hoping for another school massacre, this time in Crook County.
It's obvious he craves attention by telling KTVZ: "If the federal government comes into Crook County and wants to take firearms and things from (citizens), I'm going to tell them it's not going that way."
In case he needs reminding, Hensley's job is to enforce the law, not to ignore it, subvert it or violate it.
Hensley has demonstrated that he should be fired from his position by the Crook County Court.
The Crook County sheriff has joined other hyperventilating gun fetishists across the country in coming unhinged from reality. Check out the comments after the KTVZ story to see how crazy some people are in "God's country."
The facts are simple. In countries that have strict gun control laws, there are around 50 homicides a year from firearms. In America, we average about 15,000 a year. For those who are math-challenged, 15,000 is much larger than 50.
If some Americans think the price of freedom in the U.S. is easily worth 15,000 killings every year, not to mention the roughly 20,000 annual suicides by guns, then this country is due for even bloodier days than the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 kindergartners and six adults were sacrificed for this "freedom."
