Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- Ralls County Sheriff Gerry Dinwiddie, Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn, Jackson County Sheriff Chuck Heiss, and Livingston Country Sheriff Steve Cox are all saying “they won’t enforce any laws that they feel go against the Constitution.”

All four have made it clear there are enough gun laws on the books, and that the Obama administration will be overreaching if they try to put more in place.

Sheriffs Heiss and Cox have even gone so far as to sign and send a letter to Obama expressing their concerns:

I am writing to you to express my concern with the tone of your administration with respect to the Second Amendment rights of American citizens. It appears to me and many Americans that there is a genuine desire on the part of your administration to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law abiding American citizens in the interest of curbing gun violence in our nation.

Any attempt to restrict these Second Amendment rights through executive orders is unconstitutional and tantamount to an all out assault on the United States Constitution. Just as the Fourth Amendment…guarantees our citizens the right to be secure in the persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, the Second Amendment guarantees each of us the right to keep and bear arms.

These Missouri Sheriffs are the latest to join with others like Linn Country Oregon Sheriff Tim Mueller and Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman, both of whom have made it abundantly clear that any new gun control laws are DOA in their counties as well.

Men like our Founding Fathers made us free, men like these Sheriffs are keeping us that way. Patriots all.

      The military and law enforcement communities are now getting on board with this resistance effort. There are many more than those who have spoken out. With any luck, we’ll squelch this current crop of infringements and this won’t escalate into a situation that the government will regret.

      Encouraging a lawfull insurection throughout 90% of the nation sure seems like a poor way to “decrease gun violence” to me. My hat is off to any and all who say so these Sheriffs of course included.

    3. Chuck Heiss is the Sheriff of Johnson County, Missouri not Jackson County as reported. Way to go chuck.

    4. [...] Refusing to go against the 2nd Amendment. Read Story Here: [...]

      DEAR SIRSI THANK GOD FOR MEN LIKE YOU WHO STAND UP IN TMES LKE THIS WHEN MOST OF OUR LEADERS COW TAIL IT AND HIDE.I AM A CCW PERSON AND RET.DEPUTY SHERIFF BEHIND YOU 100% .

    6. First…a sheriff or other law enforcement officer has the discretion to enforce or not enforce laws….how do you think you get to pull away without a speeding ticket after being caught speeding…..officer discretion, that’s how. So stop with the soapbox rhetoric that officers must do this, they must do that. Secondly, the Milwaukee Sheriff did not tell people to not call 911 or do anything illegal as anti-gun propagandists are trying to twist it. The simple versions is: citizens must take responsibility for their own safety first and then depend upon law enforcement. This sheriff knows that NO law enforcement agency can be everywhere to protect every person all of the time. It is just common sense that apparently anti-gun propagandists don’t seem want to understand or want to accept. Lastly, what is going on in Missouri IS THE BEGINNING OF TYRANNY. A government trying to confiscate citizens’ property without that citizen having committed a crime or become a threat to society. A government that is NOT tyrannical knows that you can’t pass laws that make citizens criminals by virtue of passing that law. The democratic sponsors and supporters of that bill should be called out and replaced as soon as possible by the people of Missouri, whether you agree with gun control or not. It is proof positive that these legislators DO NOT have the correct mental state to serve as a citizenry’s representative. Get them out Missourians!
