No Unconstitutional Gun Laws In My County

An Eastern Kentucky Sheriff is taking a strong stance on gun regulation by saying he wont enforce any new federal gun laws in his county that he deems unconstitutional.
Jackson Co. Sheriff Denny Peyman said he is not defying President Obama but an executive order that might arise in which guns of any sort would be collected by the federal government. "I can only speak for the people here in Jackson County," Sheriff Peyman said. "We're talking about self protection here. I don't think there should be a limit." Peyman's comments come before next week's recommendations by Vice President Joe Biden and his task force to President Barack Obama on ways to minimize gun violence.
The sheriff of two years estimated that about half of the people in his county are registered handgun owners and many of them would not take lightly to giving them up."They're going to bury them, they're going to hide them and there are some who will probably just fight you for it," Peyman said. "If you take away our freedoms and take away our firearms that's total control of the people." Peyman said the decision came down to his duty to defend both the Kentucky and US Constitutions. He highlighted the importance of the Second Amendment which Peyman pointed out was put second on the Bill of Rights instead of "down the line". "Let's go to the Kentucky Supreme Court and see how much say the states have compared to the federal government," Peyman said, who added that he has received several calls from attorneys who told the sheriff they would help with any litigation. Peyman told LEX 18 he's not in favor of any restrictions. He said if the only guns allowed were six-shot revolvers the "bad guys {would still} walk in with AK-47's." "Once they outlaw them how many do they think they're really going to get," Peyman said. "If push comes to shove it's going to take a while. They're not going to come tomorrow."

What are they wanting to do. Is it the same thing Bush did when he was President? He Did no sale of ass rifle and no high cap mags.

an ASSAULT weapon is also any rifle that has a pistol grip on it. just like it was out in ca. so my 10/22 is considered an ASSAULT weapon because it has a pistol grip on it. it's a ruger 10/22 for petes sake

I would like to meet this Sheriff and shake his hand. He seems like a hell of a guy to stand up for what he believes is right. This country needs a lot more of his kind.

Assault rifles are also defined as having selective fire, between semi-automatic and burst or automatic(if you can afford the tax stamp). Most civillian models do not have this feature. It's the Jackson County Sheriff who is standing up to this bullshit and I would love to move there.

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave and hated and scorned.

When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it cost nothing to be a patriot."

I envy the people of Jackson Co, they now know how their police stand on the matter. When it hits the fan, I hope they stand side by side with their Sheriff and his crew.

Im moving back to Texas. They're going to make it illegal for law enforcement to enforce any new federal laws on guns. Awesome!
