A Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff is telling the Feds that they better not step foot into his jurisdiction. In fact, he is telling the Federal Government that he will not enforce any new gun control laws that he considers unconstitutional, and that they better remember that Sheriffs have more power than the Federal Government.
Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman told reporters that as Sheriff he has a “moral obligation” to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Therefore he will not allow the Feds to take any actions against the citizens within his jurisdiction.
He told Reporters:
“The Sheriff has more power than the Federal People.”
“We are a constitutional office and will uphold the Constitution…. American citizens already have given up too much power over guns… My office will not comply with any federal action which violates the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold,” Peyman said. “Let them pull that stuff in other places if they want, but not in Jackson County, Kentucky.”
