Skip to comments.Kentucky Sheriff to Feds: 'You Are Never Going to Pull Guns Out of Jackson County'
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.

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!
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.
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.
The real prize is maintaining life while attempting to grab guns
Yep, what a BUNCH of HYPOCRITS!
Prediction: The feds will ignore any defiance.
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
Civil war 2 is coming.
One county over from where I live. Good to see this! Jackson Co. is ‘real country’ - often the butt of many jokes, but I sure wouldn’t mess with this feller.
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.
That would be called a militia.
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.
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!
