    Some anti-gun politicians are seriously over the top with their irrational fear of guns. Apparently, so much so, that they can’t be in the same building with armed individuals, even when those individuals are county sheriffs.

    According to KTUL, nearly 40 sheriffs walked out of the state capitol after being asked to disarm because an unnamed state senator was uncomfortable with them being armed,

    “One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” Wagoner county sheriff Bob Colbert said.

    “So we all packed up and left,” he said.

    “We’re the people that protect these people,” he said.

    “If the state troopers are satisfied that we’re ok in that building I’m pretty sure that the legislators should have something else to worry about such as the economy or something,” he said.

    Just another example of the completely irrational fear of guns far too many people in government have. Also, real brave of the anti-gun politician to send a messenger and remain anonymous.

    According to reports, some lawmakers have apologized to the sheriffs, but this is a situation that shouldn’t have ever happened in the first place.

    I support the Sheriffs of Oklahoma. I'd leave that building unprotected forever. Let the legislators buy yellow "you're making me anxious" cards for those who would do them harm. Turn off the metal detectors, and go out the door, you can go catch perps instead of babysitting legislators who are cowardly

    We have to find out which one of these cowards asked this stupid thing and put it on the news. Boy will have to go to the peoples republic of Connecticut to find a new job

    As an Okie, I was appalled to hear about this the day it happened. They need to find out who this senator was and relieve him of his duties the next election cycle. I applaud our Sheriffs for taking the action they took.

    Well, if it helps, I really don't care who wins college football, other than the 'Bama vs Auburn game, and that's because I had a butter bar (2LT, Second Lieutenant) back in my army days that was an Auburn grad. After about two weeks I asked him where he went to school He said "Auburn". I asked who Auburn didn't like, he said "Alabama". Ya know, I've loved 'Bama ever since, lol.

    But I agree. Y'all and us are brothers. When we pull the dang plug and go back to being a Republic, join us, and we'll just make up one hell of a Republic.

    Just keep your ears to the ground, and it will leak out who the Yahoo Senator is... And when it does you locals need to bombard that Idiot, with letters, emails, and letters to the Editor, of your local papers, demanding a Personal apology to each Sheriff, who left.... You need to make that SOB, understand, and pay the price for foolishness..... .....

    Oh man....those Sheriffs are just way too polite....

    " Why sure Senator...we'll remove our shooters, when you remove yer lily liver, and donate it to science. Otherwise, don't bother calling us if some sensible constituent takes it into their head to share their lead with you. We'd be obliged to give your constituent a sporting chance to confirm your unreasonable fear of firearms. Have a nice day. "

    This story had me smiling all this week! Also the N.Y. people tearing up their gun registration paperwork I just read about. And of course, Conn.

    Actually, the majority of the state of NY is "non-socialist". It's just the wogs in charge in Albany who were voted in by the VERY population dense NYC.

    Spent over a year in NY state mostly the western side, from Jamestown to Niagara. Also spent 3 months in the 5 boroughs. Met a lot of great folks out in NY state. We have a similar problem in Texas, with Austin. Liberal stronghold as well as the capital. We are contemplating a military incursion to roust them out or whether to just build a wall around it and only let them fly to NY City and California

    If the good people of OK can identify the ass-hat who wants to disarm the Sheriffs, then they need to vote him gone ASAP.

    Was just talking about this at lunch. There needs to be a recall election/vote of no confidence and his @$$ needs to be unemployed no later than November and he should be censured before then.

    Mike, our problem is not just Austin but all the large metro areas have been gerrymandered to go to the libs.I like your idea but think some in the capitol building would benefit more from a case of rope burn.
    Would help some of our federal reps(Sheila jackson-lee for one) see the way.

    No THERE is one that I hate to see talk because they ALWAYS say she is from Texas. She is as stupid as anything I have ever seen. Yet the entitlement class keep re-electing the stupid thing

    I concur.

    No doubt. Even CHL Holders can carry in all but the Voting Chamber of TEXAS State Capitiol. Of course DPS and all other LEOs carry open or concealed as their job requires.

    The people that asked the sheriffs to disarm need to decide if they work for the people, or the state senate, because the sheriffs were legally carrying their sidearms. The answer to the Senator that complained should have been "too bad, they are not breaking the law".

    The folks that told the sheriffs to disarm need to read up on the history of the SA in Germany. The SA (Brown Shirts) did the bidding of Hitler until they were no longer necessary and then they too were disarmed, arrested, and killed. Same thing always happens once the ball starts rolling. Rome, Russia, Germany... Those that do the bidding of the governemnt over the people will ultimately be distrusted and persecuted by the government they served, and in the end see the same fate as those they persecuted.

    The same goes for the AFT agents that raided the gun store in California, or police officers that arrest folks for taking videos.
