Kentucky Sheriff Won't Enforce Gun Control Laws

Denny Peyman, Jaskson County Kentucky Sheriff, said he will do nothing to enforce any federal gun control laws imposed on people in the country he represents.

Reminding people Kentucky is a commonwealth, Peyman said he has power over any federal or state officials, and contends that that power extends to him telling anyone representing those agencies to leave the county.

He said, “My office will not comply with any federal action which violates the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold. Let them pull that stuff in other places if they want, but not in Jackson County, Kentucky. Just a few of us have to be willing to stand up to political opposition putting our people at risk. The other side will back down.”

A number of other sheriffs around the country have echoed similar sentiments, saying they won't enforce any gun ban either.

People in Larue County deserve to hear from their sheriff as to where he stands on the issue.

As for Obama, he has no authority to pass or implement any law, as that is the function of the legislative branch.
