From Barrett Firearms:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Barrett Firearms Donates Rifles to Every Tennessee County Sheriff Office or Department

(Sevierville, TN) At the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association Annual Conference & Exhibition today, Barrett Firearms President Chris Barrett, shown photographed with Robertson County Sheriff Bill Holt, announced that his company is donating 95 Barrett REC7 DI rifles, one to each Tennessee county sheriff’s office or department.

“When the Barrett story is told, folks usually talk about the civilian shooters and militaries around the world that have chosen Barrett long-range precision rifles for more than three decades. Less-often mentioned is my father’s background as a county sheriff’s deputy, our 5.56 carbines and rifles, and the countless law enforcement agencies that choose Barrett. We want to highlight that legacy and show our strong support for law enforcement by donating these Barrett REC7 DI rifles to the sheriffs in our state,” Mr. Barrett said during remarks at the conference.

“As lifelong Tennesseans and builders of the Barrett Model 82A1/M107, the ‘Official State Rifle of the State of Tennessee,’ we are proud to build every one of these rifles in Tennessee. We believe that the sheriffs can use these rifles as they enforce the laws around this great state.”

Chicago Police Chief: We will shoot anyone with a gun.

From BearingArms.com:

“You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”

Sheriffs vs Police Chiefs

From Ammoland:

Chiefs are at the beck and call of their political bosses, mayors and city councils. “We chiefs get our opinion on firearm ownership when it is issued to us.”–A recent quote by a chief.

A sheriff told us “There is an active debate between sheriffs and chiefs that is affected by the big city chief culture because chiefs tend to emulate each other.”

Marisol Valles, 20-year old Student, Named Police Chief in Violent Mexican Town

Alcazar/Getty Twenty year old criminology student, Marisol Valles, stands outside of her office in the northern Mexican border town of Praxedis G. Guerrero municipality in Chihuahua State.

“(AFP) – A 20-year-old female criminology student was named police chief of a northern Mexican border town plagued by drug violence because no one else wanted the job, AFP reported Tuesday.

Marisol Valles became director of municipal public security of Guadalupe “since she was the only person to accept the position,” the mayor’s office of the town of some 10,000 people near the U.S. border told local media late Monday.”
