Washington DC – -( On December 18 2015, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio referenced President Obama’s pending executive action on gun control and said executive order or not, guns will not be surrendered.

Arpaio talked with Breitbart News about a number of gun-related issues and indicated that an ongoing problem is that guns and gun control have become part of the “political situation.”

As a result, Democrats react to the criminal misuse of guns by grandstanding to punish law-abiding citizens with gun control.

The same thing happens after a terror attack, such as the one that took place in San Bernardino on December 2 2015. Since then, Democrats have pushed to add the no-fly list to background checks, to expand background checks, to pass an “assault weapons” ban, and to institute and fund a national gun buyback.

Now, Jen Psaki, White House communications director, says executive action to go around Congress and expand gun control will be coming in “weeks, not months.”

Arpaio addressed this pending executive action, saying, “Obama does know we have the Second Amendment, right?” He added, “I’ve said it before. I’m not surrendering the guns. He can give an executive order saying we’ve got to collect the guns, and I’m not going to do it.”

Arpaio said that “there’d be a revolution” if a president ever issued such an order.

Violating prisoners rights? The poor things live in tents, and are U ready for it? They have no air conditioning in the hot southwestern sun, they have to wear pink underwear, no smoking, and no magazines or books. Poor things. I also hear that the chow is pretty awful, baloney sandwiches and such. Not too much different than what our troops experience over in the sandbox while being surrounded by religious fanatics that want to shoot them or better yet behead every american they can lay their hands on.

Lava….No. Google it, and stay off of the lib’s sites when you do.

Sorry but he’s just spreading more fear using the NRA tactic by perpetuating the false propaganda that THEIR COMING TO TAKE ALL OUR GUNS! What rubbish.

Lava, What the heck are you talking about? I guess you think he bully’s all the convicts.


Isn’t Arpaio the one who violated inmates’ rights? If so it’s good to hear that he is doing something right.


Sheriffs and Police Officers oath is to uphold the U.S. Constitution and laws approved by Congress not Presidential orders.

Way to go Sheriff Joe!!! Encourage the National Sheriff’s Association to back you and the Peoples Nation will arm with you. The Constitution means nothing to the Washington idiots!


Tell it like it is Joe……’re not alone!

Tony Suggs

Add Sheriff Dave Clark of Milwaukee. I doubt that he will follow any of Obama’s exc orders!


This man is a vanishing breed . . a true American.

Donald Wilson

This is why I support Sheriff Joe. The crap that Obama has put on his plate would scare off most everyone else. What I don’t understand is why our military and congress just sits back and lets him get away with all this !! Obullshit needs to go! NOW !!


They’re not YOUR guns TO surrender, Sheriff.

We need many more like sheriff Joe Yes many more

We need more sheriff’s like Joe. We need our elected senators and congressmen to have at least half the backbone as Joe to stand up against the tyranny of the Obama administration.
