We are not alone in this fight! While California is known across the country as being on the forefront of liberal politics, we have twelve sheriffs (so far), who decided it was time they tell the country,and Vice President Biden, that they do not agree with the anti-gun majority.
Maybe it comes as a shock to the more liberal parts of the state, that there are so many sheriffs who do not stand with the majority. And we hope it does. For too long, we've heard the sheriffs from California's major cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc), act as if they speak for all of law enforcement, in support of stricter gun control laws. Well, we are proud of the twelve sheriffs who have decided they've had enough! They are taking their oaths to support and defend the Constitution to heart. We can't thank them enough for their bravery and dedication to protecting the safety and rights of their citizens, while at the same time, continuing to defend the Constitution.
If your Sheriff is on this list, send them your thanks and support. If your Sheriff's name is not on this list, call him or her and ask them to join this brave group of Sheriffs who are standing by their oaths:
Del Norte County Sheriff - Dean Wilson
El Dorado County Sheriff - John D'Agostini
Fresno County Sheriff - Margaret Mims
Humboldt County Sheriff - Mike Downey
Lassen County Sheriff - Dean Growden
Mendocino County Sheriff - Thomas Allman
Modoc County Sheriff - Mike Poindexter
Plumas County Sheriff - Greg Hagwood
Shasta County Sheriff - Tom Bosenko
Siskiyou County Sheriff - Jon Lopey
Stanislaus County Sheriff - Adam Christianson
Tehama County Sheriff - David Hencraft
In fighting for you and your rights, these Sheriffs are upholding the Constitution as it was intended by our Founding Fathers.
Bookmarking for places to stay and spend during our annual Westward visit. I love the West Coast. We just need to outnumber them and take it back!
I especially recommend the letter by Sheriff Mims. Check on the link.
Yeah, those sheriffs are all in Northern/Eastern CA counties. Of course.
Yep. We need to fill-in the blanks.
You missed Shasta.
