Sheriff Warren is a very intelligent, kind, impressive man. I've had the honor of meeting with him on a couple of occasions. Each time he listened and provided outstanding support.

I am very proud to live in Cobb County under his leadership. This letter is just another example of his professionalism, dedication and true passion for the protection and rights of citizens. A letter that I hope is utilized in our high schools and colleges to help educate our students as well.

Outstanding letter, Sheriff Warren. Very thoughtful and articulate. I am proud to have supported you for several elections. I know you will remain true to your beliefs, the Constitution, and the citizens of Cobb County. The majority of Cobb County has your back, Sir. Thank you for voicing your opinion.

Dear Too Funny, you're too funny and Rule of Law (good names)... All the Sheriff is saying is that there is a proper way (Rule of Law as some would say:) to enact law - executive order is not it.

Thanks Sheriff. Maybe there's still some hope left for the Republic as long as good men like yourself are willing to take a principled stand. Liberals beware - your treasured first amendment will be next!

Thank you yet again for being proactive in protecting the citizens of Cobb. We appreciate you for this and other decisions - such as being the first to apply for 287G.

You are the example our Commissioners should follow - don't cower to Chamber boys in order to finance your election.

The sheriff seems to think the second was written to make murder more efficient. The Minute Men of Lexington and Concord were not using AR 15s or Bushmasters, they were using muzzle loading flintlock muskets which could fire two shots per minute if the gun's owner was very fast. The general population does not need these semi automatic assault weapons, with large capacity mags. The current patchwork of gun control laws in the US are ineffective at best. Very thorough background checks must be utilized in all states, including a waiting period, including limitations and what types of guns can be purchased and the amount of ammunition. The background checks should include,checking former or current employers, family, military records, arrest records, schools attended by the buyer, credit check, drug screening. The buyer of every weapon purchased will bear the cost of these checks.

No one is attempting to take away your damned guns, so you can stop frothing at the mouth over this perceived notion.

Wait - you are going to protect us from government encroachment? You are the government!

And exactly what right to bear arms is being infringed?

Surely you too aren't trying to score political points Sheriff?

A sherrifs position and the position of the local law enforcement is not the same as the federal government. These are people selected and elected by the local citizens and they are usually there for the best interest of the local populace. Political points? As long as they stand for the people there should be no need for political points

Although the Sheriff is a dyed in the wool Republican and hates all liberals in the Democrat party, he is still responsible for the fair treatment of all the citizens of Cobb County. I would not bet my life that he would fulfill this commitment if he had to choose between one of his so-called conservative buddies and a Democrat. He is over the hill and should take his retirement and go shoot off his guns like he does his mouth. It is funny as all get out for the Sheriff to say guns are to protect us from Government tyranny when he is the epitome of Government with all the power he has.

Does this mean you will actively oppose the federal government even the Supreme Court if they disagree with you on your interpetation of the second amendment as the majority including Scalia apparently does?
