Are Democrats in Colorado Threatening Sheriffs with Lower Salaries because of their support for gun ownership?

Here is something that received from Colorado State Representative Lori Saine:
Sheriff Maketa is filing charges with the AG, we will see where this leads. Apparently he is the only one to have received the email. If this is true, there will be no doubt we have a totally gangster government.   
Here is a quote from the video:
The Senate dem leadership is very upset with the sheriffs and their opposition to the gun control bills.  And there is another bill that has been put off and put off and that is the salary commission which makes recommendations to the legislature for the pay of sheriffs and other country elected officials.  And as you know Jeff, my pay is actually by the legislature.  Well, Governor Ritter under his tenure created a commission that would study these salaries and come forward with fact backed recommendations.  Now this salary bill has no effect on me, but the Dems have been dangling it out there and refusing to follow their own created commission's recommendations and they have put it off for two years and basically in that email it said sheriffs the Senate majority leadership are very upset with your testimony and opposition on the gun bills . . . they are stating . . . we should reconsider our positions to gain a more favorable light for salary support from the Dems. . . . 
Sheriffs haven't apparently gotten a raise since 2006.

I'm sure there were people in the U.K. who were very sincere in their desire to retain the ability to defend themselves - with guns where appropriate. I guess I'm a "radical" because I truly would rather be dead than to live in a society like the current U.K. or Japan. This unfortunate tragedy at Newtown has been like a dinner bell clanging to give permission to the liberals to pull out all the stops to take our weapons away. All of them, and for good.
It's as if half the population has gone completely crazy. Like some damn science fiction movie. I am honestly concerned that some of us will react violently - which will be exactly counterproductive. Maybe that's what they are trying to do, push us over the edge. Then Obama can introduce Marshal Law - for "our safety". Is that what they are up to?
