When El Paso County, Colorado Sheriff Terry Maketa spoke to Breitbart News on September 4, he said “constituents should be able to fire representatives who ignore constituents.”
Just hours before, Maketa attended a rally where he lent his voice “to citizens fighting for their constitutional rights through the recall process.”
Speaking to Breitbart News, Maketa made it clear that he understands Coloradans’ frustration with the new gun control laws: “If you look at it from the macro-level, these laws did not deliver what was promised.”
“Number one–they were passed under the promise that they would prevent another Aurora or Sandy Hook but there is no validity to that statement,” he explained.
“Number two–these laws were not born in Colorado. Rather, they are just a copy of what NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others are trying to do all around the country,”
“Number three–the laws are unenforceable. They ban ‘high capacity’ magazines purchased after the laws went into effect on July 1, but provide no mechanism for knowing which magazines were in fact owned or transferred prior to that date.”
