Fourteen thousand shares later— as of this writing, and counting— Ulster County sheriff Paul Van Blarcum still has ~opinions~ and so does everyone after he posted this VERY HOT TAKE.
So let's see what else the Democrat (the sheriff is elected) is saying to other media:
* "The people who are doing the gun violence aren’t using registered guns.” Daily Freeman;
* "people are getting slaughtered and nobody has a gun" Times Herald-Record;
* "when stuff hits the fan it'd be nice to know that there's somebody there that's going to stand up." WAMC;
* He said he’s “not trying to drum up a militia of any sort.” AP.
So we just got it as a letter to the editor as well, with sheriff's letterhead pic.twitter.com/aBBX7GkSkL— Ivan Lajara (@ivanlajara) December 3, 2015
Do I have a hot take about guns? Of course I do. And so did you when I wrote that.
