I just wrote to my local sheriff to see where he stands. I don’t know if I will hear back from him but maybe it will prompt him to put out a public statement like so many others have done.
I’ve seen articles lately about sheriffs that have pledged to obey the oath they have taken yet, through other actions, appear to be picking and choosing how they will obey that oath. Look, if these guys are willing to go on the public record as supporting MY 2nd Amendment Right, more power to them. My respect for them just went up 10 times. But, right now that public vow is pretty easy to make. When push comes to shove, what then? Will these guys really be willing to stand up to the atf or whatever jack booted thugs obama sees fit to send in? I hope so. But, you know, if it comes to that, it’s going to get real ugly, real quick with or without the sheriff backing us up.
I think the number of people who are waking up to the realization that obama and congress REALLY do want to take our guns grows every day. I also think that people are talking about what happens after a government takes away the guns. 9 times out of 10, it doesn’t end well for the suckers that gave up their guns. Millions of dead people can’t be wrong.
Anyway, this is encouraging. Maybe that will catch on. It would be very cool to see people in charge in the Military saying similar things. Police departments. National Guard commanders.
And then what? Do you think the department of homeland security has enough bullets and AR’s to take on all of us? They do have enough bullets, but not enough people to send them downrange…

From Florida to California, a growing number of the nation’s sheriffs are standing up to gun control measures proposed by both the administration and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).
Many law enforcement officials have written letters to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden voicing their concerns over what they believe is an effort to infringe upon the Second Amendment.
In New Mexico, 30 of the state’s 33 county sheriffs have reminded state lawmakers that they are under oath to support the U.S. Constitution, and that includes the Second Amendment.
CNSNews.com previously reported that 28 of the 29 sheriff’s in Utah sent a letter to President Obama stating that they will not enforce any new gun laws they believe to be unconstitutional.
A host of Oregon sheriffs have said that they will not comply with any new unconstitutional gun regulations:
- Sheriff Craig Zanni wrote, ”I have and will continue to uphold my Oath of Office including supporting the Second Amendment,” in a letter to Coos County citizens.
- Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said he would refuse to enforce any new Federal gun law he believes is unconstitutional.
- In a letter to Vice President Joe Biden, Grant County Sheriff, Glenn Palmer writes: “I will not tolerate nor will I permit any federal incursion within the exterior boundaries of Grant County, Oregon, where any type of gun control legislation aimed at disarming law -abiding citizens is the goal or objective.”
- Sheriff Gil Gilbertson of Josephine County told Biden in a letter: ”Any rule, regulation, or executive order repugnant to the constitutional rights of the citizens of this County will be ignored by this office.”
- Sheriff Tim Mueller of Linn County, Oregon says his department will not participate in any overreaching and unconstitutional federal firearms restrictions.
In California, Sheriff Adam Christianson of Stanislaus County wrote to the vice president: “I refuse to take firearms from law abiding citizens and will not turn law-abiding citizens into criminals by enforcing useless gun control legislation.”
A letter sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein from Sheriff Jon Lopey of Siskiyou County, California states: “Our founding fathers got it right and many politicians are getting it wrong.”
In Missouri, Lawrence County Sheriff Brad Delay tells the president: “I will…rise to the defense and aid of all Americans should the federal government attempt to enact any legislation, or executive order that impedes, erodes, or otherwise diminishes their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”
At a town hall meeting, Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County, Kentucky told citizens “you are never going to pull a gun from Jackson County.”
Smith County, Texas Sheriff, Larry Smith has said, ”I will not enforce an unconstitutional law against any citizen in Smith County. It just won’t happen.”
In Florida, Martin County Sheriff, Bill Snyder said that he will not enforce federal gun laws: ”Local law enforcement authorities are not empowered to enforce Federal law,” Snyder said.
