    Vernon Co. Sheriff Canadate Jeff Smith Supports Open Carry

    I had a chance at the Vernon Co. fair to meet two canidates running for Vernon Co. sheriff. Independent canadate Jeff Smith was a treat to talk to. Jeff has very strong libertarian views and is a like minded man, he says what he means and means what he says. Jeff supports oc and ccw and wants nothing to do with permits. Jeff was willing to tell me what his thoughts were on all sorts of different issues we deal with everyday and it was obvious he was not trying to please me, just speaking his mind. I could not find a thing to disagree with him on. Thumbs up on Jeff, I hope he wins his race, he will have my suport all the way.
    The other canadate I met was John Spears, his motto is community first. After having a long discussion with him it was easy to see that community first meant he would tell me what ever I was hoping to hear. He flip-flopped on several issues like the GFSZ, first he suported it then when challenged on it he changed his tune. When pressed on issues it was very difficult to get him to take a stand on anything. He believes the constitution is subject to change as society changes. Thumbs down for John.
    Carry on

    Really?

    Seems as though he and his officers are not on the same page!

    The officers are not in support of OC or CCW.

    To Clarify:

    Mr. Smith IS PRO OC. He is a candidate, NOT the Sheriff.

    Either way, the Fair was posted by the Agriculture (AG) Board, NOT the Sheriff.

    +1000. bnh is correct, Mr. Smith is a canadate, the ag. society seems to be anti-gun not Mr. Smith. I have had the opportunity to talk with Mr. Smith in great length, he with out a doubt suports oc and cc without permits. He strongly disagrees with the positition the ag. society is taking.

    Right but your earlier post on the other thread stated that The LEOs that were present made the statement that they were not in support of OC or CCW.

    Or did I misread that?

    As far as Smith goes I was under the assumption he was the current Sheriff

    No, you read it correctly, I was incomplete. The Fair is held IN THE CITY of Viroqua. The Viroqua PD officers I talked with were/are against any kind of carry. I DID NOT talk with any Sheriff deputy, or candidate for Sheriff.

    My apology for not clarifying the difference between the two entities.

    Carry On
