Milwaukee County's David A. Clarke Jr. apparently is far from the only sheriff taking a stand against tougher gun control measures proposed in the wake of the Newtown school shooting.

A group called the Constitutional Sheriff and Peace Officers Association says 408 sheriffs have "vowed to uphold and defend the Constitution" against President Obama's proposals.

A group called the Second Amendment Sisters linked to the CSPOA list, which includes a posting by Clarke saying those who want gun control have "the mindset of sheep."

Two other Wisconsin sheriffs are on the list: Dale Schmidt of Washington County and Jeff Rickaby of Florence County. Schmidt has criticized Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn, a gun control advocate, saying that Flynn "sounds like a man who makes no distinction between law abiding citizens and criminals."

Interesting to see this liberal paper admit that that there are hundreds of sheriffs in the country who think President Obama's gun control is unconstitutional.

“A group called the Constitutional Sheriff and Peace Officers Association says 408 sheriffs have “vowed to uphold and defend the Constitution” against President Obama’s proposals.”

That’s 408 more sheriffs who have vowed to die on a hilltop for the glory of obuma.

Buckwheat is cooked.

He’s got a bunch of mercenary secret service traitors who are more interested in finding hookers.
