WATCH: Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy After Second Amendment Resolution, ‘I Will Not Enforce Unconstitutional Law’

DAVIDSON COUNTY – Today, as tens of thousands march on the Virginia state capitol in defense of gun rights and liberty, the same movement is finding more and more support in North Carolina. More than a dozen counties have declared themselves protectors of the Second Amendment, and Sheriff’s Deputy Tripp Kester delivered one hell of a speech in support of Davidson County’s resolution. It’s gone viral for good reason.

“I’m going to protect the people of the county regardless of what’s done here. Let’s get on board and let’s do the right thing. We’re not going to allocate any personnel, finances, resources or anything to infringe on their liberties.”

Those, “God given” rights, as Kester said deserve a demonstration of public support from local governments in an era in which state and federal movements increasingly threaten our rights. Kester spoke directly to this and reminded everyone that he, as a sheriff’s deputy took an oath to uphold the constitution and the right of the people in Davidson County.

Residents of Davidson County, and a dozen more, should feel reassured in the event that gun control interests gain electoral power here in our state. Moreover, these declarations are a way of standing with our fellow Americans in Virginia against an oppressive government. There are more counties with resolutions supporting the Second Amendment this week; is yours one of them?
