Kentucky Sheriff to Feds: 'You Are Never Going to Pull Guns Out of Jackson County'
http://www.breitbart.com/ ^ | 01/13/2013 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 01/14/2013 4:15:55 AM PST by BO Stinkss

As I wrote on Jan. 11, Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman has made it clear that gun laws which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution will not be enforced in his county. On Jan. 12, he followed this up with a press conference in which he explained that a Sheriff's powers are predominant over the powers of federal and state agents. When he says these things he drives gun-grabbers batty because he says them with the conviction that rests on knowledge, and he has no intention of backing down. During the press conference, he took time to explain his powers as sheriff: I am responsible for the people inside this county. I am the highest elected official in this county, and this is the only opportunity the people have to speak for themselves and say 'this is what we want.' I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave. ...[And] it doesn't matter what [new laws] Obama passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people. He said that if federal gun-grabbers don't understand this, then "they need to go back and study it," because Kentucky "is a commonwealth." Peyman says he has been approached by liberals within the gun-grabbing world since he made his original promise of no gun control in his county, and he told them plainly: "You are never going to pull guns out of Jackson County." Sheriff Denny Peyman represents everything good and brave about America, and about the great state of Kentucky. He is a patriot, first class.

A patriot indeed. I could see my county sheriff taking the same stand. They can pass all the gun grabbing laws they want, but who would be brave (stupid) enough to go out and try to grab them?

I see this country divided along red and blue states.

Have you noticed that the ones who are calling for gun control are from the “blue states?”

Blue states where the GUN CRIME RATE IS THE HIGHEST!

Time to make an example of Sheriff Peyman with a fist-banging-on-the-wall raid, pushing people down on the floor, yelling, intimidating and disarming of him and his staff. Come on, government, what are you waiting for? Oh wait, that's right, Feds plan stuff for 2-3 years and then hit when everyone has forgotten about the original comments/actions.

The government will take care of him and all of the other big mouths that have been spouting off about all of this. They're taking names and preparing a list.

I see this as the next move, not only on the gun issue, but also on the tax issue.

The federal government has become far too big and invasive. "Gun control" in the red states simply won't fly.

The feds will almost certainly have to do SOMETHING about this defiance. What that is and when is a good question but they simply cannot allow their agenda to be challenged by anyone but especially not by a sheriff or other LEO.

He and any other elected official that openly defy’s them
can expect to be targeted in some fashion. If necessary
Holder will have some spooks plant something and then bust
the sheriff and anyone else who won’t play ball with them on
manufactured charges of some kind.

The people in DC have NO intentions of being thwarted...and they will fight quite literally to achieve their agenda if they have to. They want the prize....whole and intact if possible but broken and buring if necessary...but THEY WANT THE PRIZE.

Presumably the sheriff could deputize all or most of the gun owners in his county. Such a legally assembled group could face off against the federal forces. And so begins CWII

Perhaps because liberals don’t want to face the consequences of their failed policies- and ideology ((Socialism DOES NOT work)... but would prefer to just take the guns away- as if that is going to solve their mental disorder.

What will more likely WILL HAPPEN is that the red and blue states WILL end up parting company and safe to say, there is NOT a Lincoln-like figure in the horizon.

Doubtful.

Look for more and more of a “parting of company” between what is considered the “red states” and the “blue states”.

I agree with you and then again I don’t

The Feds have launched attacks against Sheriff Arapaio too and he is still there.

Certainly there is nothing the Feds would rather do than to get these Sheriff’s but can they? These men have courage and right is on their side.

I wouldn’t be surprised if CZAR B.O. and his capo, Eric Holder, brought in some of their “Fast and Furious” friends from Mexico (of course on Air force One) to help them enforce their dictates!

Folks should take a hint with what had happened at the Golden Globes last. The movies that look like they are going to get “shut out” or close to it by “Lincoln” and Steven Speilberg cleaning up the Oscars won last night.

I was at Barnes & Noble yesterday and they had a lot of gun books on displays. Of course, I live in SC, but still, it was surprising. Guess they realize there is a lot of interest in guns these days.

VERY Nixon like! And I always thought that the left didn’t like President Nixon. Just wait (and it will happen) until the administration turn on their own because they are not pure enough.

It is very safe to say rather:

I am RIGHT to say that there is NO LINCOLN-LIKE person on the horizon.

Obama IS NO LINCOLN. Obama DIVIDES. Lincoln UNITED.

If some states can refuse to enforce the immigration laws, then states can also refuse to enforce any new gun laws.

I will never forget that time. I had people who should know better tell me that Elian was an illegal alien so whatever was done to return him to Cuba was justified. I told them they were wrong, how can a six year old who was brought here by his mother be an illegal alien, he was a refugee. How could anyone justify sending 100 federal agents to kidnap one little boy in the middle of the night and send him back to Castro when they won’t lift a finger to stop millions of gang members, jihadists and drug dealers from coming across the border from Mexico?

You lost me at Lincoln united. He took by force, under the guise of stopping slavery. I’m a Canadian not a southerner, but it’s evident to me it was a war of northern aggression.

We don’t need a Lincoln, we need a Washington. When offered to be a leader of a military run regime, he turned it down. There is a man of principle and valour.

But even the founding fathers, during the time when the Declaration of Independence was being put together and the revolutionary war, the issue of slavery was an issue that was NOT going to go away and was going to have to take a civil war to resolve it once and for all.

Well, the slavery issue was going away already by time the civil war was around because of industrialization and other advances in farming etc.

It wasn’t about freeing slaves, they would be captured and pressed into service, that’s not freedom, hence the underground railway into Canada.

What gun grabbers don’t understand is that there are many millions of non-elite Dem gun owners who love guns just as much as those hated Republican/conservative gun owners. I know quite a few hardcore Dem gun owners and hunters who would not take kindly to some petty-fascist gun grabber trying to take their guns away from them.

gun owners outnumber the military 100 to 1 and that’s assuming all of the military would follow orders to fire on their fellow citizens, and I doubt even half would follow such orders, making it more like 200 to 1 or greater.

I have no idea how liberals who refuse to own or use guns plan to win a civil war they are desperately trying to pick.

Unfortunately our Sheriff would happily arrest and even murder law-abiding gun owners if so ordered. In fact, he’s already done so. Bill Gore, former FBI Agent, now San Diego County Sheriff, approved the “shoot to kill” orders in the Ruby Ridge travesty.

I have been trying to picture for years what the map of the new countries would look like.

The problem for the liberals is... their coalition is divided by the whole middle of the continent. If the country broke up, the North East would be cut off from the west, which would I assume lead to at least 3 different countries (a western liberal one, a north eastern liberal one, and everything in the middle and south joining Texas to become the new conservative nation. No idea what would happen with Hawaii and Alaska.
