New York Sheriffs Fight Back

New York’s Schoharie County Sheriff Tony Desmond and Otsego County Sheriff Richard Devlin Jr. are both questioning the legality of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s recent gun control legislation.

Desmond told the New York Daily Star

“Nobody from the Schoharie sheriff’s department is going to be taking any weapons away from anyone unless they have committed a crime,” Desmond said. “An average law-abiding citizen is not going to have to worry about the sheriff’s department coming to take their weapon or arresting them for having a weapon.”

“We don’t have the time to run around and tell everybody to bring their long weapons in to register them,” he said. “We’re just barely keeping up with the pistol permits we have now.”

  1. I hope to see this kind of response here in Georgia as well, and in as many places as possible. Sheriffs actually hold quite a bit of power, and I’m glad to see them using it to protect and serve their people, even from our federal govt.

  2. Well it’s good to know and encouraging that it’s still people that are willing to stand up for for our 2 amendment and constitution.

  3. Perry County Sheriff said if the feds wants them, they can come in here and try to take them themselves. I wish them all the luck in the world with that. Laughing afterwards. So Perry County, Kentucky is onboard with the Consitiution.
