More gun control, what state do I live in again? Oh yea I live in the state of Seattle now. Good grief, this is insane! Gun control creates crime, look at Chicago and D.C.
Here we go again, instead of admitting this gentleman has an important issue - the blatant bias against Sheriff Turner by the UB staff all the comments slam him! Grow up children. he makes some extremely valid points that no one disputing! The UB does not represent the people of Walla Walla! We are not Seattle, we need a new paper.
Great letter Margaret. Thanks for telling the honest truth. I also work with Search and rescue and Sheriff Turner is a real blessing to the county.
Great letter, full of facts without smears and misrepresentations.
A vote of yes on 594 will have a dramatic impact on your life. Think about this for a minute - if 594 passes (I hope it dies a horrible death!) here is one consequence I haven't seen spelled out -
A burglar/criminal (with an illegal weapon) breaks into your home, your spouse shoots them with your legally owned gun, she then goes to jail!!! The weapon was transferred without a background check, and according to 594 that is illegal! What a stupidly written piece of junk 594 is, and it was written that way specially to eliminate our rights to self protection.
The incident in Maryville was terrible, but this law (594) would have had no impact at all! We already have laws to protect illegal arms transfers, they need to be enforced, not re-written!

True and honest public servants don't take a two year vacation at the count's expense! He was offered a limited duty assignment and refused it. The offer maintained his pay but it was beneath his and an insult. He'll never get me vote.
One of the first things Tom Cooper has promised is to BREAK the LAW! Not only will that set a terrible example but it will cost this county thousands of dollars in law suits. He has stated publically on many occasions that he will hire a Hispanic deputy. That may be a worthy goal, we'd all love to see some Hispanic deputies, but all hires MUST come from the list of candidates provided in the registry!
Loyal employees work for their place of employment or retire! Tom Cooper is not loyal to the county and has not shown he deserves to be Sheriff. Then you slam Sheriff Turner by stating - "Along comes an outsider, an interloper with fancy new ideas who upsets the status quo and the line of succession." Sorry, the sheriff is not a position where only loyalty matter. Skills and experience matter, our safety is at stake here! Sheriff Turners experience and background matter now more than ever!
