I just got a letter from our Sheriff Stan Barry. I will paste the entire letter below.
During the Republican nominations a few months ago, I mailed both candidates a letter asking for their stance on signing form 4's. Only one replied back and he didn't know anything about NFA weapons. He said he would follow the laws. Well he didn't win, his opponent did. I have no idea on his stance on civilian gun ownership.
Anyone thinking of buying a Class III weapon or going the SBR route needs to help out. After his letter to me, I will donate to his re-election campaign.
Even if you are not into Class III weapons, please help out and vote for Stan Barry. Tell all your friends too.
As you are no doubt aware, the 2003 election season is upon us. Over the past four years, my staff and I have ssisted you in your investment and collection needs. It has been my pleasure to do so.
As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, I have faithfully processed your requests for Class III firearms, as I believe is your right to make. One of my goals four years ago was to complete these requests equitably and in a timely fashion.
Unfortunately, the manner in which we have conducted these transactions may change dramatically. I believe my opponent in this year's race for Sheriff may want to change this process. In his role as former Chief Depudy Sheriff, his administration demonstrated a different stance on gun ownership than mine. At that time many of the Class III requests were either denied or not acted on.
In addition to my stand on Class III requests, you should know that I am endorsed by all Deputy Sheriff, Police and Firefighter groups as well as the Law Enforcement Alliance of America. These organizations have said that I am the clear choice to lead the Sheriff's Office.
As in all political races, sufficient funding is imperative to mount a successful campaign for re-election. If you are able to help with this your contribution would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your time to read this letter and I look forward to the opportunity to continue serving as your Sheriff.
sounds like a good man, thanks 7.
Good info. I will pass the word around at work.
