Responding to Barack Obama’s visit to Colorado yesterday, during which he pushed for new gun control laws, Elbert County Sheriff Shayne Heap slammed the President for politically exploiting recent tragedies by using “fear” and “grandstanding”.
More than a dozen Colorado sheriffs held a press conference yesterday in opposition to newly passed laws in the state that prohibit the sale of magazines which hold more than 15 bullets, in addition to mandating background checks for all private gun sales.
In a YouTube video, Heap said the new laws bordered on “legislative abuse” and only served to punish law-abiding citizens, adding that Obama flew in from DC, a city which has one of the highest per capita murder rates in the country.
“His domestic policy has been to legislatively carpet bomb law-abiding citizens with excessive restrictions,” said Heap, adding that Obama had engaged in a “broad legislative attack on constitutional rights,” concentrating on border security between Pakistan and Afghanistan while ignoring the flow of illegal guns coming across the US border.
