To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all policies, procedures, directives, memorandums, and any other guiding materials regarding matters pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:
• policies and procedures on the issuance of firearms permits and licenses. (Please note that this point is not a request for identities of individual permit/license holders, but is rather a request for governmental policies and parameters regarding the process and regulations by which one may obtain a license or permit. If separate strictures exist for each, provision of both would be greatly appreciated.)
• policies and procedures on the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies. Please provide all such materials that alter or supplement departmental procedures.
Please include all available segregable data.

• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses.
• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• the suspension of firearms permits and licenses.
• the renewal of firearms permits and licenses.
• incidents involving the use of a firearm.
If various policies or reports exist dependent on the type of firearm, provision of all applicable materials would be greatly appreciated. Should they be voluminous, provision of materials on rolling basis would be greatly appreciated.
Should your agency believe that any additional policies, procedures, reports or other analysis pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, transfer, deaths, incidents, or any related issues may reside with another agency or agencies, indication of such agencies would be greatly appreciated.
Please notify us if further clarification is necessary.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Ms. Curtis

I am assuming from the subject line of your original open records request
that your intent was for the request to go the Custer County Sheriff's
Office in Colorado.....not Oklahoma...which is where you keep sending your
repeated requests........

Just in case I was wrong....I sent you an email on 8-1-2016 that stated:

" Ms. Curtis:

There is no statutory requirement in Oklahoma that requires citizens to be
permitted or licensed in order to own a firearm.

If you are referring to the licensing of individuals who carry firearms
under the Oklahoma Self Defense Act, the agency responsible for this
procedure is the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, and they do so
under the authority of Oklahoma State statutes. (Oklahoma Title 21, Sec.
1290.1 thru 1290.27) These statutes can be found here;
lahomaSelf-DefenseAct> &ftdb=STOKST21#OklahomaSelf-DefenseAct

So, if you wouldn't mind...either use the information that I sent you on
August 1st...or send it to Colorado which is where I believe you meant to
send it in the first place.....

Thank you

Kenneth Tidwell, Undersheriff
