In light of the Colorado shooting last Friday, Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton is urging people to always be aware of their surroundings.   He also believes that an off-duty police officer or a well-trained citizen with a gun could've prevented some of the deaths in the Colorado movie theater.  Blanton was a guest on 1110 KBND's "Your Town" show Wednesday morning.  He says sometimes you have to shoot to injure or even kill.  "I believe in the right to bear arms.  Frankly - I'm not being critical of the Colorado situation.  It's a terrible situation.  I wasn't there, don't know what happened.  But it's important...don't be a victim."  In Deschutes County there are about six thousand people with concealed weapons permits.  He says besides a background check every three years they also do random audits of gun holders.  Blanton says the sheriff's office hasn't had any significant problems with those who "carry" in Deschutes County.
