Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- 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.
