    Ohio County Sheriff David Thompson wants no part of those who would ignore the U.S. Constitution or take guns out of the hands of those who are entitled to them.

    Thompson’s remarks come on the heels of a National Sheriffs’ Association meeting last week in Washington, D.C., and 23 executive orders recently handed down by President Barack Obama dealing with the controversial issue.

    “It is my job and I am sworn to protect the rights of our citizens and that means upholding the language of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution,” Thompson said. “I don’t want my guns taken away and I don’t want the guns of other responsible individuals taken away.”

    And Thompson’s stand is basically the same as the stand taken by the sheriff’s association.

    In a prepared statement, the association was adamant in its support of individual sheriffs as leading local law enforcement officers who are directly accountable to the people through the election process.

    “A primary mission of a sheriff is to ensure public safety and gun safety is vitally important to our nation’s public health,” the association determined.

    The group, in its concluding statement, also determined:

    “The cause of violence, including gun violence, must be addressed on many fronts, including improved mental health treatment, media violence, drugs, gangs, breakdowns in the family, strengthening laws that prevent or reduce the access of legally prohibited persons to firearms and vigorous enforcement of existing laws.”

    The sheriff said he does not agree with all of the president’s orders, but is in full agreement with some of them.

    “He wants to provide law enforcement, first responders and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations and to provide incentives for schools to hire additional resource officers,” he said. “How can I be against that when it means I can hire additional personnel?”
    Much has been said about the ownership and use of assault weapons and the capacity of the ammunition clips in those guns.

    When they come after them it will not be local LEO , they know they cannot count on them, it will be DHS, Fema, UN soldiers, Obama's "youth army" His version of the Hitler youth) etc. Some states with strong anti gun Dem Governors will/may order the state police to assist as well

    Boone county sheriff has already said he won't enforce any new regulations. He is sponsoring the local Day of Resistence. While I don't know him personally, I have heard he is a strong supporter of the 2nd, as he should be.

    If they are coming to disarm you, they are not your friend.

    Our Sheriff is a convicted felon so hes probably for confiscation....make his job a lot safer. Well, his deputies jobs anyway. I guess Grand Marshall Escort of a funeral procession is a pretty safe gig.

    The local paper had an article on this last week. Both the Sheriff and Chief of Police stated they were against the gun control measures. It put my mind a little bit at ease.

    BTW: they already stated it will be Federal Agents, like ATF and FBI, who will be performing these duties. Local LE will be far removed from this.

    The Regime IS counting on a vast majority willing to comply, otherwise just imagine the resources that it would take to "go door to door" searching everyone. There are more than 300 MILLION firearms owned legally (known) I would not be surprised if that isn't even half of the real number.

    I think they want to make some laws SO severe that many will just hand them over rather than risk being a "felon" not allowed to own guns at all in the false belief that after another election their rights will be restored.

    I also believe they're sadly mistaken that any real % will hand them over; they have started something they do not have the time , $ or resources to finish, and EVEN IF they do get the resources (Using UN troops and Obama's "youth brown shirts" ) they have NO clue where 1/5 even are at right now. Imagine this regime locking up the gun owners (or killing them outright) WHO then works and pays for the "free stuff"?

    As for the FBI , ATF etc. they may assist somewhat, but are they going to be able to just let their jobs "go" in order to pursue > 300 MILLION guns? The plan to disarm us all, HAS to depend on many /most just turning them into to them......
