270 Sheriffs and 8 State Sheriffs Associations Saying ‘NO’ to Obama Gun Control
constitutional sheriffs peace officers association ^ | 2-04-2013 | Sheriff Mack

Posted on 02/05/2013 9:41:08 PM PST by Colorado Doug

Sheriffs have risen up all over our great nation to stand up against the unconstitutional gun control measures being taken.

The following is a list of sheriffs and state sheriff’s associations from who have vowed to uphold and defend the Constitution against Obama’s unlawful gun control measures. I applaud these public servants for their courage and conviction.

I call on sheriffs all over this nation to add their voices to the growing numbers of faithful protectors of our freedom. -Richard Mack

Constitutional Duty of the Sheriff – Richard Mack

Sheriffs and associations who have made public statements committing to protect their citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights from Obama’s gun control efforts will be added. Some of these sheriffs are members of the CSPOA, but inclusion in this list does not necessarily mean they are a member.


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Extended News; Front Page News; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: banglist; constitution; guncontrol; nocompromise; secondamendment; shallnotbeinfringed; sheriff; wewillnotcomply; youwillnotdisarmus
See if your Sheriff is on the list. Sheriff Mack is the real deal! A true American. Here is another list of 328 Sheriff's with what seems to be a seperate group.

To make it more clear, I have posted two links to two groups. The link at the title seems to be the most serious bunch, the second link is what seems to be a second, somewhat parallel association but not as outspoken.

That is a pretty low ratio nationwide.

I do not feel comforted.

It is low indeed. We need to lobby our Sheriff’s to get on the right side of this. If it’s any comfort, the list is growing quickly.

There are 3,033 organized county or county-equivalent governments in the United States according to 2007 Census of Governments.[2]

Nothing to feel good about if only 9% of Sheriffs aren’t on board.

I had the pleasure of meeting Richard Mack at a gun rally at the Lincoln Memorial back in early 90’s. Impressive American indeed; we need more just like him.

I find it hard to believe there are only 3,033 organized county or county-equivalent governments in the United States.

That is an issue.
Laws in this USA start at the local level.
Or they should.

I did too, back when the Sage Brush Rebellion was in full swing. Interesting that the Denver Police Department was recording license plate numbers in the parking lots at the time and later pulled him over on some trumped up charge that didn't stick, of course.

I feel angry. Our Republican group in Brazoria County, Texas, spent a lot of time, money and energy on our Sheriff’s re-election and his name is not on the list. He’s going to have some explaining to do to a bunch of folks tomorrow.

That’s great, but Texas is making a rather weak showing on these lists thus far. It’s embarrassing!

I must call his office to see exactly what his stance is regarding his constituents here in Suffolk County. Also, in regards to gov nanny cuomo’s new NY state law, how that impacts us here in Suffolk.

Just called my Sheriff’s office. He was in DC, is on his way back and has been returning calls to his constituents. Yes, you heard that right...HE IS MAKING THE CALLS!.

She took my name and number, said he was pretty backed up calling every person BACK.....PERSONALLY.

I had to ask the woman...”wait, he is calling us back PERSONALLY, himself? That is unheard of!”

She laughed and said I know. Of course I had to ask again, just to be sure I heard correctly. I told her my concerns w/ barry and his anti-gun reg’s and nanny cuomo’s new anti-gun laws and about registration, etc, how that impacts us residents here in Suffolk County.

Said she is shooting off an email to him right now with these questions and hopefully he will call me back tonight...which seems when he has the time to call his “peeps” back!

Again....I AM FLOORED.....for now. Let’s see if it actually happens.

Any police officer, sheriff or agent of the government that wishes to disarm American citizens CAN NOT BE TRUSTED.

I see that the Harris County Sheriff is not on the list, although that doesn’t surprise me, he’s a Bronco Bama toe licker.

The Chief of Police has also said he will support Obama and there never was a doubt about Ms. Gay Mayor. Right now we have issues with the Sheriff in Brazoria County which we are tackling first. Houston and Harris County is in Obama’s pocket.

You must be referring to the queer Houston Mayor. She'll back Obama big time.

One in the same. I understand there is a rumor floating around that she may run for Gov next time. Wouldn’t be surprised if she launches a run against Cornyn or maybe one of the Houston area Congressmen though. Have been surprised BO hasn’t found a spot for her in DC yet - she’s such a good soldier.

Same here, FRiend. A paltry 5 county sheriffs in Florida, and I read yesterday that the Florida Highway Patrol will start doing "maintenance inspections" on major highways in and out of the Tampa Bay area.

This is death by a thousand cuts or boiling the frog slowly. They are testing the public's tolerance of travel suppression by police. It's only a matter of time before they turn entire neighborhoods or even counties into patrolled ghettos.

My hope for this nation is diminishing quickly.

[[That is a pretty low ratio nationwide.]]

Exactly, and it’s a low enough number that hte government does NOT fear FORCING them to comply- the number of towns and cities and states refusign to comply shoudl be large enough that the governemnt is FORCED to back down- but given hte extremely low numbers of ‘sherrifs’ resisting, you can bet that when push comes to shove, MOST of them will back down because they are NOT gettign enough support from Americans-

Not too long ago the government tried forcing soem assinien mandate down America’s throat, and a couple of states stood together and told the govenrment ‘Not on our watch you aint pullin that crap” and the govenrment was forced to back down- but now that we are faced with losing our constituional rights, NO state is standign up and saying “Nope- not on our watch’?

EXACTLY- they are seeing how far they can bully us, and they are findign out right quick that they can do whatever the hell they feel like- and they won’t face ANY or very little opposition- give htem an inch and htey wikll take a mile EVERY single time- NY just proved that- scratch that- NY just proved they actually no logner give a damn abotu what peopel think- they are no longer ‘testing the waters’ and htey have declared war o nthe public and will take no prisoners- It used to be that they would push until someoen cried abotu beign pushed- but no more- they are now shovign and threatrening ANYONE that speaks up-

I read a story in the WSJ this morning explaining how a state not taking the medicaid option really puts low wage employers in a bind.

The Baraqqis did a crafty job of forcing this on the states.
