Virginia sheriff says he won’t enforce Democrats’ proposed gun laws

Wa Ex:

The sheriff of Grayson County, Virginia, said Monday that if gun control legislation proposed by Democrats passes, his department will not enforce those state laws.

“If the bills go through as proposed, they will not be enforced; they’re unconstitutional,” Sheriff Richard Vaughan said. “We swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Virginia, and that’s what we’ll do.”

Vaughan was one of thousands of gun enthusiasts from around the country in Richmond on Monday, many of whom were heavily armed, to protest sweeping gun legislation proposed by Democrats in the state’s general assembly. The bills would virtually ban military-style firearms, limit the frequency of handgun purchases to once a month, and allow local police to take guns from citizens who they deem to be a threat to others. read more

  1. Vaughan must realize that igniting another civil war isn’t too smart of an idea, too bad the democrats have their eyes shut.

  2. Good on ya, Sheriff Vaughn.

    But as for the WaEx writer, what the heck is this:

    Vaughan was one of thousands of gun enthusiasts from around the country in Richmond on Monday, many of whom were heavily armed…

    I mean, “gun enthusiasts”? Is that like MLK was one of a number of “marching enthusiasts” on their way to Selma? And then as distinct from “heavily armed” I suppose there were some “medium armed” and even “lightly armed” people there. That writing is terrible.

  3. There were several LEO’s there that vocally, and with signs that supported the 2nd Amendment. Lots of Patriots out there.

  4. If Obama waived his finger in the face of Arizona stating, “State immigration laws are null & void, they are a federal responsibility” then why can’t/doesn’t Trump nullify state’s who trample a Constitutional right?
