Law enforcement

In the wake of yet another gun massacre, and this one hitting close to home, perhaps now would be a good time for Sheriff Ian Parkinson to spell out exactly which gun laws he will and won’t enforce in his quest to protect so-called gun rights in the Second Amendment.

I think we need to know the level of protection we can expect from our county’s top elected law enforcement officer as our nation’s gun orgy continues unabated. I’m sure Mr. Richard Martinez, who lost his only son in the UC Santa Barbara shooting spree, will appreciate knowing if our sheriff is one of the “craven politicians” of which he so eloquently and heartbreakingly spoke.
