“A high-profile former sheriff who once sued the U.S. government over its gun regulations and won says it is the local sheriff who will have to defend Americans when and if the feds starting banning and confiscating guns.
Richard Mack, a former sheriff in Graham County, Ariz., joined with then-Ravalli County Sheriff Jay Printz in a lawsuit against Washington when Bill Clinton demanded sheriffs enforce provisions of the Brady Bill gun control law.
He won. And since then hes been at the front of a movement that highlights the responsibility of local sheriffs.
Now, as Washington gears up to consider imperious plans to limit guns, require fingerprinting and registration, impose additional taxes and fees, ban particular features or functions outright, and even confiscate weapons of self-defense, Mack has told WND that theres hope remaining in local law enforcement.
Its not complicated, he said.
‘Gun control is illegal and its against the Constitution,’ he said. ‘What people dont realize is that the Second Amendment was designed to protect us from the power of the federal government,'” quoting J.D. Longstreet in in Front Page, U.S. Constitution.
