Addy Hansen, if you took the time to get the facts you would realize how incorrect you are. Just because the tax passed in November doesn't mean the money just starts rolling in. The county did not start collecting revenue until January and the Sheriff didn't see a dime of that until March. Even though funds weren't there he started hiring in January. His people are working very hard to get people trained, but that also doesn't happen overnight. Would you like a newly hired person with no training to respond to calls? They have to go through months and months of training. As a community, we will probably not truly see the benefit of 1A until a few months from now if not longer. As far as the gun laws, I'm glad that we have someone that is representing us and protecting our constitutional rights. He took an oath to do that. I'm not sure what you are so distraut about. Sheriff Maketa doesn't believe in just anyone owning a gun, but he does believe in law abiding citizens having the rights to own one. Those who support the gun laws are living in a fantasy world. Do you really believe these laws will prevent criminals or mentally ill people from obtaining a weapon? That's not going to happen, then the law abiding citizen who gave up their weapon becomes a victim and is less likely able to protect their family. 911 is great, but what do you do while your waiting for the cops? Offer the criminals some coffee or tea? I think you should take a look at the big picture before making accusations.
