Parkinson’s perspective

Santa MargaritaMarch 24, 2013 

Thank God we have Ian Parkinson for sheriff. He has the sense to put the gun situation in the right perspective. Thank you, Ian, for sticking up for the law-abiding citizen. It’s about time we have a person in higher command who is not ruled by the political parties that demand elimination of guns or severe restriction of them, instead of focusing on people who have mental problems who commit the crimes.

Thank you, Sheriff Parkinson, for doing the job you were elected to do — protecting the law-abiding citizen and upholding your oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

And thank you for knowing the difference between ridiculous laws that are passed in a moment of stress and sensible laws.

You have my vote again, Sheriff.
