JustDoIt, out of curiosity when do you have encounters with Sheriffs over your firearms, I was under the impression that they have no real function that would bring them into that enforcement capacity. Are you talking about the Alberta Sheriffs under the Solicitor General and Justice ministry or the Civil Sheriffs (bailiffs)? Or am I way out to lunch and misinformed (also highly likely lol)
It's the boys that give you tickets that have been arses ( i don't speed). Never had a Bailiff in my life. From what i understand they show up mostly to evict you and or lay down certain laws. Not highway enforcement.
As far as a officer of the law acting like that ( not saying he did) after a total SHTF.. he wouldn't live long i have a feeling. Lots of rednecks out there that wouldn't put up with it.
