Sheriff Tim Mueller's stance on unconstitutional firearms regulations.

In response to Obama's executive mandates or orders and Biden's proposed gun control legislation.

The letter below explains Sheriff Tim Mueller's stance on unconstitutional firearms regulations.

If only every sheriff in every county thought like this... We need a lot more Andys (Tim) and a lot less Barneys in this country. Most law enforcement officers and judges have become nothing more than tax collectors without any honest due process. The officer writes the ticket, the judge sets the fine, and the person is taxed at the court clerk's register (Cha-chinggg!). Andy used good old common sense to read a situation and determine if it should be pursued and enforced. Barney was a mindless retard void of discernment at any level.

Update: Three more Oregon Sheriffs stand with Tim Mueller.

UpdateState officials in Mississippi, Oregon and Texas are vowing to fight back against any attempt by the federal government to impose new gun control laws.

UpdatePine County, MN sheriff ‘will not enforce’ further federal gun regulations

Update: Add Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman to the list: “I talk about what I can do for my county. I can’t stand up for other counties, I can’t do it for them, but I can stand up for my people.” Peyman vowed.
“I was one of the first people to say, I think they need to arm school teachers. Not all of them, but there is somebody that needs to have a weapon.”
The sheriff then spoke about how the media glamorizes mass shootings and makes them appealing to copycat wannabe’s.
“What would happen if the first two or three that tried it got shot coming in the front door?” Peyman said. “They wouldn’t do that anymore, it would be taken from them, there’s no glory in that for them.”
“In Jackson county, as long as I am Sheriff here, I got children, I got family, I got friends, I got everybody here, and I feel a whole lot better coming into a room if I know everybody is packing, than if I’m the only one, because if they take me out first, then they take everybody else out too.” the Sheriff concluded.
Sheriff Denny Peyman should be commended for his fine job in upholding constitutional rights. He is a shining example to other law enforcement officers who should take note of his concerns regarding the ongoing attack on the Second Amendment. Rest assured, Peyman is also not the only Sheriff ready to stand up and defend the rights of his people.
Update:  Madison County, ID Sheriff Roy Klingler said states passing gun reform are "out of control." "I personally am sick and tired of the government putting regulations in place that affect our personal rights, our property rights and the Constitution," said Klingler. 
UpdateTexas and Wyoming are threatening to arrest any federal law enforcement agent who tries to enforce federal gun laws in their states.  Let’s hope more states follow suit.
Update:  Richard Mack, a former sheriff in Graham County, Ariz., joined with then-Ravalli County Sheriff Jay Printz in a lawsuit against Washington when Bill Clinton demanded sheriffs enforce provisions of the Brady Bill gun-control law. He won. And since then he’s been at the front of a movement that highlights the responsibility of local sheriffs. Read more at 

Update: Republican Rep. Steve King, who represents western Iowa in Congress, is a gun-rights supporter who warned during an October 2012 debate against Democrat Christie Vilsack that the purpose of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution “is to guard against tyranny because our Founding Fathers understood that if you did not have an armed populace, a tyrant could take over America.”  “So we have a responsibility not just to defend the Second Amendment in words, but do so in deed by hunting and target practicing and also self-defense,” King said.

One of King’s constituents published a letter from King on Jan. 2 in an online gun-rights forum. In the letter, the congressman said he was “heartbroken” by the Newtown, Conn. shooting but called the tragedy ”the act of an evil, and likely deranged, individual intent on committing horrifying acts of violence.” Read more:
