Need help with petition for sheriff

We are starting a county wide gun owners association. One goal is to get signatures for a pledge/petition/decree (not sure what to call it to submit to our sheriff. Here is what we have so far, An open letter to the Sheriff. Any thing more specific we are missing?
We the undersigned wish to express our support for the County Sherriff Department in their efforts to insure safety within our community.
As firearm owners and concealed pistol licensees, we intend to act within the law, and are fully behind efforts to thwart the activities of those who would use firearms illegally. We believe the unlawful use of firearms only enhances the negative aspects of gun ownership, and may negatively influence the thinking of local officials when it comes to protecting our rights.
We recognize that all rights come with attendant responsibilities. We would ask that the Sherriff and his officers and staff do all they can to assist us in preserving these rights.

We had a public meeting at a library to show a film on nullification. Few showed up, but one lady who did, said there was specific wording you needed to address a sheriff. I do not know, but for what it is worth, here it is. I guess, at the beginning of the letter you state: I accept your oath of office and I bind you to it.
That is all I know.

thank you for the input!!!

thank you for the input!!! That search phrase opened up some interesting language written to sheriffs. Interesting the latter part of the phrase comes from this: "Bind down the Public officials with the chains of the Constitution" ---Thomas Jefferson
