40 Oklahoma Sheriffs Asked to Disarm – They Leave Instead


Gun-grabbing fever has finally reached the conservative stronghold of Oklahoma.

An annual meet-and-greet at the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City turned sour when an anonymous senator demanded that the 40 sheriffs in attendance remove their firearms.

But rather than disarm, the sheriffs voluntarily walked out.

When given the choice, Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert said, “We all packed up and left.”

“One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” Colbert added. “Everybody in that building knew who we were.”

“It’s a pretty sad day for me. We’re the people that protect these people,” he said.

Colbert suggested Oklahoma might be in better shape if legislators focused on issues like the economy and the state’s finances rather than legal owners of firearms.

    It alarms me when ONE man (i.e. this senator) can have so much influence and can intimidate so many.

    This to me just proves how stupid the liberal politicians are… We have seen in the past several years many random shootings and we realize that they can happen anywhere at anytime…. To me it is very simple, more guns in capable hands equals more protection…

      Maybe it is that the corrupt politicians equate lawmen with guns equals justice… now I understanding the liberals fear of guns.
