The name of the senator who demanded the 40 plus sheriffs remove their guns was not given to the law enforcement officials, but sheriffs across Oklahoma are obviously upset after this incident.
The sheriffs were accustomed to visiting the capital once a year as part of a meet and greet and to talk with their state law makers. But this time, because one of the senators (who was apparently very anti-gun) complained about the sheriffs being armed and laid down an ultimatum.
Either the sheriffs had to disarm themselves, or they have to leave. The sheriffs chose to leave.
According to KTUL,
“Everybody in that building knew who we were,” said Wagoner county sheriff Bob Colbert, who, along with 40 other sheriffs from around the state, converged on the capitol as they do every year to meet and greet and lobby. Until…
“One of the senators, who they wouldn’t tell us, complained because we were armed in the building,” he said.
They were then given a choice, disarm or there’s the door.
“So we all packed up and left,” he said.
Colbert doesn’t know for sure which senator complained, but has his own complaints about the complainer.
“We’re the people that protect these people,” he said.
What’s more, he says, maybe if they were worried more about state business then law enforcement officers with guns, Oklahoma would be in better shape.
“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.
He says some lawmakers have called to apologize, but the sting of getting the boot from the capitol is gonna hurt for a while.
“Pretty sad day for me,” he said.
