Greg Rotz had a meeting with his local sheriff.Â Not the guy who revoked his license to carry, that sheriff retired.Â This is the new sheriff.Â I link to this because I think it’s a great way to do activism:
In the end he said I was glad I took the time to come see him. He asked if he could keep all of the documentation I presented to him. I told him that was why I brought them. He asked if I had a card. I told him I did not have a personal card, but gave him a PAFOA card, and he wrote my name/number/e-mail on the back. I told him we were not a PAC, and were not trying to offer money in exchange for policy changes, etc. We are not making demands. We just want everyone (citizen and LEO alike) to know what the laws are, so they can be followed. I also asked if he would be willing to attend a local social gathering, and he said he would do so. I promised to keep him updated as plans began to form.
I think you can get more mileage out of a soft sell than you can walking in and making demands.Â While they are public servants, they are also people, and they will tend to listen better if you’re treating them well.
