Sheriff Adam Christianson may have missed a golden opportunity at his recent Madison Society appearance.

Why didn't he Mirandize the room and make the folks produce those civilian gun permits?

Sure, you can rely on a show of hands when you are dealing with a crowd of "good moral character," but you never know who will show up at a seed company.

The sheriff might have snagged the odd armed person with no permit and used the fines to help fund chasing those gang members.
