Susie Makens: Important facts
April 6, 2013
I have been reading all the letters to the editor these past few weeks concerning Sheriff Garrett Wiggins' stance on the new gun bills. It is interesting to see the voice people have been taking with regards to his actions concerning these bills.
A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend a meeting where Sheriff Wiggins gave an informative talk about these bills. Facts were presented about each bill, bringing to the surface the impact these bills will have on citizens, businesses and the state of Colorado. In addition, Sheriff Wiggins talked about his experience attending a session down at our state Capitol before our elected officials. It was mind boggling to hear the reactions from some of our elected officials when facts were presented by different groups.
My first thought after hearing this talk was that the public needs to be made aware of this information. I asked Sheriff Wiggins if he would be willing to present this information to the public at some sort of gathering. "Absolutely," was the response. With the help of another gal, a date was arranged. A location was provided with the help of the American Legion.
An invitation is being extended to anyone who is interested in hearing the facts about these gun bills as well as the implications the bills will have on citizens, businesses and Colorado. This meeting is not being sponsored by any political group, just some very concerned citizens. There will be some guest speakers and a time for answers and questions.
Please come and learn the facts about these bills. We hope to see you there. The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Steamboat Springs Community Center.
