A special thanks should go to Sheriff Richard Mack, who in the 90’s reminded us all of what a Sheriff’s job is when he stood up to the Brady Bill..and won!

A note today, from Richard Mack:

Dear Friends and Patriots,

I am ecstatic about the growing number of sheriffs around the country vowing to defend the Second Amendment against Obama’s unlawful gun control efforts.

There is a growing list of sheriffs on our website who have said “NO” to enforcing gun control.

As the groundswell continues, we expect more and more sheriffs to come out of the woodwork and join our coalition against tyranny!

THanks for posting this AuntB. Really surprised at some of those Northern California counties on the list, but glad to see it. Sure wish some of ours down here in So. Cal. were also involved.

Or when Hussein’s minions make credible threats to the sheriffs’ family members.

I emailed the sheriff of the county where my land is, asking where he stood on this. Here's his response (names removed):

Good morning ______, This debate will work itself out and I will wait for the finished product. There are so many checks and balances in our society, that for the life of me, I can’t imagine federal agents trying to enforce “unconstitutional” regulations to begin with. This issue requires a level of cooperation between all levels of law enforcement, mental health professionals, school officials and the community in general. Thanks for your inquiry, ______

Somebody must teach lessons in vagueness to some of these guys.

Add Polk County, Florida Sheriff Grady Judd. His email he sent out said he would protect the Constitution with his “last breath”.

Very frustrating - Frank Denning is the sheriff of Johnson County, Kansas, not Missouri. People get confused because we’re part of the Kansas City, MO metro area. I have issues with Frank though since his security on the courthouse is so tight that I have to take off my cowboy boots.

It's a positive stance for publicity but the reality is we don't really need to worry about the local Sheriff when it comes to enforcement of unconstitutional federal laws and regulations. We need to be concerned about federal agents, namely those from the BATFE.

What I want to hear from these Sheriffs is that they are going to ARREST any federal agents attempting to enforce or even harass law abiding citizens, firearms dealers and manufactures.

The feds don't give a crap about what these Sheriffs say and the they don't want them enforcing gun control laws. No, the feds want to conduct their illegal thuggery themselves.

So while I appreciate the sentiment of these Sheriffs, the reality is we need them to do more, a lot more. We need them to fight fire with fire. We need them to say, when the BATFE shows up, we are going show up with handcuffs take them into custody and they can call their federal supervisor while they sit in the tank for week charged with a felony offense.

You are correct. During the chinese cultural revolution, the local police were told to not get involved as the Red Guard, did their work.......................

It is easier to get someone to run as county sheriff than it is to run for Senator or Rep or sometimes even mayor!!!

If your Sheriff chickens out, run against the POS, if your sheriff stands strong, support them!

Looks like my Sheriff David O. Livingston in the Contra Costa County is not up there. From what I understand only CCW are issued to friends, and those who donate large amount. O well at least it is good know which sheriff do uphold the US Constitution.

“””Really surprised at some of those Northern California counties on the list, but glad to see it. Sure wish some of ours down here in So. Cal. were also involved.”

That’s why we call So. Or & No. Calif. the State of Jefferson. Siskiyou County, Ca. is more conservative than just about anywhere and we don’t even claim the rest of California.

47. Sheriff Terry Box – Collin County, Texas

My wife and I so want to move back to Collin County from (blue) Dallas County. Sometimes I feel like I'm living just across the border from America.

Thank you, Sheriff Box.

Is Lee Baca still the Sheriff of L.A. County? What a waste of an honorable uniform that guy is.

I don’t know. I’m in Riverside, and don’t pay much attention to Los Angeles.

I Just dropped one of my sheriff’s a note, Jon.Lopey@siskiyousheriff.org. He wrote back and appreciates the encouragement. If you have a moment, please thank him. It’s a lonely struggle for a small county sheriff in California.
