I would like to thank Sheriff Gilbertson for upholding his Oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution.
Despite all attempts to "reinterpret" the 2nd Amendment, its wording is inescapably clear. The Right of The People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Arms are weapons suitable for combat, the litmus test confirmed by the Supreme Court in the Miller case (1939). No allowance was made for the myriad infringements, magazine capacity restrictions, feature restrictions or nearly any of the restrictions pushed by the Left in the USA.
Your ability to defend your life, the lives of your loved ones, to defend your community (in case of riots or gangs of criminals taking advantage of natural or man-made disaster) and your nation (in case of domestic insurgency) depends upon your being well armed and well trained in the use of arms. That's what the Constitution means by preservation of a Free State. It is NOT, as the deceivers claim, related to "sporting" purposes or hunting.
The Sheriff is one of the few public servants who is willing to uphold the law when politicians try to subvert it. Americans need more men (and women) like that.

I think taking away the right to bear arms make as muh sence as takig away all rights o dive a ehicle beause thry or so people havese them s a weapon to kill or harm anoher indivdual. What w rull need is btter mental facilities. Get the mentally Ill people off the steet and give them the help hy need. In each of the mas shootings, people were aware these individuals had severe metal proems. Theywere tragedies looking for a place to happen. Unfortunately, because of the lack of good mental health facilities, we lost some precious comodities, other humans.

I don't know what happeed with that last message. Letters are missing and words are left out. What I meantto say is: Taking way the right to bear armsmaks as much sence as taking way h right to Drive simoly because a number of people used them as a weapon to kill others. Our need is for better mental facilities. In each of the Mass shootings, people were aware of the mental problems these people were plagued with, and no one did anything to stop them. All were tragedies looking for a place to happen. The rest is readable.

the liberal moderator probably stopped your message as the moderator has double standards as to what some may say?

The Public has become suspicious, so the cops are having to pretend to be pro gun.
One more school shooting and the Public will want the cops rounded up, arrested, for conspiracy to murder first and second graders.
Not once was the flip-flop of Adam Lanza mentioned here (he didn't use an AR). The flip-flop came about after the Public became suspicious. So cops had to change their story.
Why do cops tell witnesses to close their eyes while the cops escort them out of the crime scene ? Hmm ?
