Sheriff Smith of Larimer County says a lot of crap. He doesn't want gun control because his buddies in the Patriot Militia need to get those Bushmasters so they can go to training in the mountains and in Idaho to play "Army". It's a load of crap. I don't care if people have guns or shotguns to go hunting. But when the nutjobs and the paranoid and the tough-guy wannabes want those weapons to either kill or pretend to kill people, that's out of bounds. The Second Amendment was enacted to maintain "well regulated militias", and the hometown militias are not "well regulated". Most are full nutjobs like Nichols and the OK bomber.
Some gun control is necessary, and I think all the recall efforts - if they try them - will fail.
