BUNCOMBE COUNTY – Democrat Daryl Fisher, a candidate for Buncombe County Sheriff, created a firestorm last week when video emerged of him joking to a Democrat Women’s Forum about prying guns from the cold dead fingers of those that refused to give them up.
The video quickly went viral, and Fisher has since apologized. Preceding the tasteless, if not dangerous, joke, Fisher outlined his wishlist for gun control, including banning all assault weapons, high capacity magazines, and raising the age for long guns to 21.
Former chairman of the Buncombe County GOP Chad Nesbitt caught up with Fisher and was granted an interview to discuss his view on guns. His answers are not necessarily reassuring when it comes to the Left’s assault on the Second Amendment. Instead, even though he apologized for his joke and explains that it was misinterpreted due to editing, he expresses views consistent with the Far Left’s view on gun control.
Watch the interview below and decide for yourself if this is the kind of Sheriff you’d want running your county.
When asked about his views on the Second Amendment, Fisher gives an answer Barack Obama would be proud of. In fact, like Obama, Fisher claims to have taught the constitution to others, and that the ‘Right to Bear Arms’ was only ever intended for the military, recent Supreme court cases notwithstanding.
How would Fisher define “Assault Weapons?”
“Any mechanism that is not for specific hunting putposes, or any item that is built specifically for the military to use.”
That’s right. According to Daryl Fisher, Democrat candidate for Buncombe County Sheriff, the Second Amendment guarantees the inalienable right…to hunt.
His other points give Buncombe County residents even more to worry about should he be elected Sheriff.
For instance, he is on record supporting making gun permits holders a matter of public record, the way permit denials are. Again, displaying for all to see every person that has a pistol purchase permit, so criminals could know who does and does not have guns in their home.
Or, a 14 day waiting period for law abiding citizens to get a firearm they legally purchased.
We think, maybe, Fisher should consult that U.S. Constitution just a few more times.
