Beginning with Sheriff Mueller, a 28 year law enforcement veteran, a number of Sheriffs around the country have begun to voice their opposition to the unconstitutional gun grab being orchestrated by the Obama administration.
Linn Country Sheriff Tim Mueller wrote a compelling letter to Vice President Biden, the head of Obama’s 2nd Amendment Hit Squad, eloquently stating his intentions should the federal government attempt to undermine the citizens right to keep and bear arms.
“In the wake of recent criminal events, politicians are attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims by advocating for laws that would prevent honest, law-abiding Americans from possessing certain firearms and ammunition magazines.”
“We are Americans. We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws.”
“Any federal regulation enacted by Congress or by executive order of the president offending the constitutional rights of my citizens shall not be enforced by me or by my deputies, nor will I permit the enforcement of any unconstitutional regulations or orders by federal officers within the borders of Linn County, Oregon.”
“In summary, it is the position of this sheriff that I refuse to participate, or stand idly by, while my citizens are turned into criminals due to the unconstitutional actions of misguided politicians.”
This isn’t some whimsical note that some guy sent the administration. This is a man, elected by his county as the highest ranking law enforcement officer in that county, saying not only that he doesn’t like unconstitutional laws, not only will he not enforce them, but that he will not stand idly by while the federal government tries to enforce them.
This Sheriff is willing to actively defend his people and their rights from the encroaching hand of a federal government drunk on it’s own highfalutin pomposity.
And it would appear he is not alone. On top of states pushing legislation to arrest federal agents who attempt to impose unconstitutional federal laws in their states, a number of other Sheriffs across the country have followed Mueller’s lead and have vocally announced that they too will not betray their citizens by allowing unconstitutional laws to be enforced in their counties.
In Oregon for starters, 3 other sheriffs have joined Mueller to stand against tyranny. Sheriffs Bishop, Zanni and Hensley have promised their citizens that they will stand up for them against any federal law that would see their liberty denied and their freedom curtailed.
Jackson County’s Sheriff, Denny Peyman has also come out and assured his citizens that he will not enforce the administrations attack on liberty. “My office will not comply with any federal actions which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold.” He considers it “a moral obligation,” and he’s got “a team of attorneys to step up with me if necessary.”
Pine County Sheriff Robin Cole of Minnesota has joined the wave for freedom by voicing his opposition saying he would consider any new federal regulation on guns to be illegal and would “refuse to carry it out.”
These are just a few in the avalanche of Sheriffs standing up for their counties and opposing tyranny.
It is a good first step. If you live in a county where one of these Davids is standing up to Goliath, let them know how appreciative. If your Sheriff hasn’t voiced an opinion or is willing to let your constitutional rights be ravaged by a insatiable federal meat grinder, contact them and let them know where you stand.
With enough voices joining in, the walls of Obama’s gun grabbing regime will crumble beneath our shout.
