Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is telling politicians and ordinary folks alike to step back from the gun control debate in order to hear from the law enforcement community.
But the mayor of the murder capitol of the world is clearly ignoring the voice of courageous law enforcement individuals who’ve been standing up for the Bill of Rights and Constitution, even in the wake of tragedy, to say they will NOT infringe on the right to bear arms.
Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County, Kentucky, held a town hall meeting to explain to his constituents that the best way to live up to his responsibility to protect the residents of that county is to uphold their right to own guns.
“You’ll understand me very well when you leave here today, and why we’re all still going to have our guns here in Jackson.” Peyman said in his opening address to his people.
“I am responsible for the people inside this county… I couldn’t justify, if Obama passes this, it doesn’t matter what he passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people.” Peyman urged.
“They need to go back and study that. We are a commonwealth. I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave.”
