Kentucky Sheriff Tells White House: Go Ahead Make My Day….

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.”

  1. Its a good thing to see someone in a position of authority willing to back up the constitution of the united states. Keep it up.

  2. This guy is ridiculously illogical. People’s right to own a gun is more important then my right to live? This policy is out dated and will be amended. I didnt vote for obama but cant disagree with his next actions. People like this and NRA have been making a fool out of themselves lately, their arguments are invalid / ridiculous, and they have no human emotion.

    • Doug, you are the one that is ridiculously illogical. You have every right to live AND I have the right to have a gun. I also have the right to live which is only one reason why I choose to carry a gun. My right to life is more important than your right to be a scared sissy.

      • doug.. im sorry but you are a naive individual if you honestly believe a gun ban will increase safety by any significant amount. i grew up close to the inner circle of a criminal organization not by choice, just born there. I PROMISE YOU THAT ANY DANGEROUS INDIVIDUAL THAT WANTS TO, CAN AND WILL FIND A FIREARM WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE BANNED IN THE STATES! you have to be an idiot to believe otherwise. theres tons of cheap weapons smuggled in every year. just look at the countries that have firearm bans. the criminals and killers still get guns in places where even the cops dont have any. and even if your feeble minded fantasy world existed with NO firearms, you’d just be stabbed or brutally beaten with sticks. murders have taken place since the beginning of time. DEAL WITH IT. FIND A WAY TO CHANGE and INFLUENCE THE INDIVIDUAL OVERALL and NOT THEIR METHOD OF KILLING

      • My right to life is more important than your right to be a scared sissy. – spoken like a true intellect

        good for you man – keep thinking at a fourth grade level

        • “Any society that would give up liberty for temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety.”

          Benjamin Franklin.

    • If you think the Constitution is outdated please keep your first Amendment rights limited, The Founding Fathers never imagined computers or the internet their 1st amendment was about a spoken voice or printed on paper. We will be glad to hear your arguments on how outdated it is but please limit yourself to a soapbox in town square or a written letter posted at Town Hall. When you graduate to the fifth grade and learn the Constitution is just as vital then as now, you can advance to the modern world and join the rest of us who enjoy using our God given rights.

    • Doug , are you really that ignorant ? If the government decided to make guns illegal are you really stupid enough to think that there wont be guns out there? Murder is illegal, Drugs are illegal, Rape is illegal, Arson is illegal and guess what THEY ALL STILL HAPPEN! We have the legal right to own and carry a gun, Its Called the United States Constitution! Yes you have the right to live, but if legal guns are taken then only the criminals and the government will have guns, AND YOU CANT TRUST EITHER ONE! The 2nd Amendment was enacted to allow us to protect ourselves from the Government! Wake Up and stop acting like a coward!

    • Doug, why don’t you start by taking guns away from criminals instead of honest, law abiding people who DO NOT commit crimes?

    • Hay Doug if you want to give up your rights and try and take mine away from me why don’t you move to england were you can be a SUBJECT instead of a CITIZEN like I am …….Leo P

  3. (This policy is out dated and will be amended.) tell ya what Doug. the second amendment is still as important as the 1st amendment your expressing now.

  4. If his admin wont secure borders & DHS willfully wont enforce deportation, states should willfully ignore their excessive taxation, the albatross obamacare, and gun restrictions.

    • Well said, it doesn’t take a genius to understand what you just said. My 8 yr old understands.
      Liberals are simple minded, azz kissing, money ho wannabes. Out to serve only themselves.

  5. I’m all for peace and harmony, but until the government gives up there weapons…and the rest of the world…im with the second amendment.

  6. The arguments here are invalid and out dated. Good luck to you guys though; in the next four years assault weapons will be outlawed and maybe well take other countries policies and ban firearms all together & as this sheriff doesnt seem to understand – the constitution will be amended and federal law triumphs state law, which would make them illegal. I guess you hicks need guns to feel powerful. My dad has a foid card and firearm and he totally doesnt need it. The security system in my house works great, and if someone really wanted to raid my house and steal my shit ill give it up as possessions are replaceable. Ofcourse there are gonna be murders and violence but banning gun laws will eliminate a huge amount. Imagine if the kid from oregon or ct or colorado didnt have access to guns? you think their gonna murder tons of people with sticks and rocks. you guys are hilarious – love this!

    • Doug, you have no clue of what our government consists of or how it works. Here is something alot of people seem to forget… which you just proved the point I am about to make. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOES NOT “TRIUMPH” (as you say) STATE GOVERNMENT!!! If our state officials would be more like this County Sheriff the United States wouldn’t be in the shape it’s in now! We need “THE PEOPLE” to stand up for their rights!!!Now… here’s a history lesson that you need!!! The Constitution was established by our founding fathers to do just two things: 1)Establish a federal government for the United States of America and 2)Delegate to the federal goverment certain, LIMITED (and enumerated) POWERS! The Constitution was written by the thirteen original states. The “federal government” CREATED BY THE STATES, VIA THE CONSTITUTION, EXISTS TO SERVE THE STATES. The STATES are “THE BOSS” of THE FEDERAL GOVERNEMNT. The STATES “HIRED” the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and set forth the “RULES” as to how it SHOULD OPERATE. THE CONSTITUTION IS A LIST OF THOSE RULES. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STATES TO ENFORCE THE CONSTITUTION TO MANAGE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. The states are the rightful and logical enforcers of The Constitution. The Constitution does not give you rights. The founders considered your rights to be god given or natural rights… meaning… you are born with all of your rights. The Constitution does however, protect your rights by: Limiting the powers of the goverment by granting to it only those specific powers that are listed in The Constitution. Enumerating certain specific rights which you “RETAIN” and these are listed in THE BILL OF RIGHTS which are the rights deemed most important by the founders and are specifically listed (INCLUDING THE 2nd AMENDMENT… WHICH IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS… LET ME QUOTE IT WORD FOR WORD, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to KEEP and BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”! ANY POWERS NOT SPECIFICALLY DELEGATED BY THE CONSTITUTION TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ARE RETAINED BY THE STATES AND THE PEOPLE. THE FEDERAL GOVERNEMNT EXISTS TO SERVE THE STATES, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. Now… go to the library or google that shit and tell me I’m wrong!

      • Outstanding analysis and summary. Your civics teacher loves you again and again. (Is that even taught anymore?)

    • Hey Doug
      Did Timothy McVeigh use a gun? NO he used a Bomb and killed more people than a single person with a gun could hope to. I have been raised around guns and know both the cost and the benifits. FYI I am from Co and had a cousin in the caffiteria of Columbine and knew a guy killed in the Aurora shooting. My father is DPD and guess what no one in my family has ever misused our guns, our kids have never been shot. Are you even aware that in San Antonio Tx there was a theater shooting that had the potential to be just as deadly as Aurora and it was stopped by two off duty cops who had their WEAPONS ON THEM!! Its funny to me that you can’t conceive of a reason to keep the first amendment well then I guess your going to be screwed when they come for your 1st, 4th, and 5th huh?

  7. Doug only supports the Bill of Rights if its protecting gay marriage or an artists right to submerge a crucifix in urine. Don’t mind him. He and his kind have neither the resolve to fight in combat, nor the understanding of the correlation between an armed populace and liberty. They are the unfortunate spineless byproduct of multiple generations living in a peaceful environment, ironically created by the 2 things they abhor most: firearms and morality.

    • God bless you sir..You are a good man,a patriot who believes in our rights,2nd amendment,constitution…wish you could send Sheriff Tony Mancuso an e-mail in Calcasieu parish.Lake Charles,La.70615.

    • Great statement PatrickHenry. I will venture to say Doug kneels and licks the boots of his betters and enjoys the flavor.

  8. Dearest Doug,

    Please read the following quotes from the following leaders in which you would refer to as “idiots”…..
    1.) “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government” -Thomas Jefferson

    2.)”The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good” -George Washington

    3.)”Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.” -Mahatma Ghandi

    4.)”One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms.” -Supreme Court Justice and constitutional scholar, Joseph Story

    5.)”Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.” -John F. Kennedy

    6.)”A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves … and include all men capable of bearing arms.” -Senator Richard Henry Lee

    7.)The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” -Supreme Court Justice and Constitutional scholar, Joseph Story

    8.)Let us hope our weapons are never needed –but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government — and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws.” -Edward Abbey

    9.) “a sword never kills anybody; it’s a tool in the killer’s hand.” -Lucius Anneus

    … and I have saved the best for last, specifically for you Dougie Poo…..

    10.)”They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -Thomas Jefferson

    ….. now who exactly, do you claim to be the fools???….

  9. A patriot,and a hero..I am so proud to see our law enforcers and our law makers standing up for our rights..we in return should all let them know we have their backs in case there is opposition to their efforts.

  10. This Sheriff may be well intentioned, but he is flat-out ignorant of the law and the Constitution.

    He’s mistaking *his* authority with the President’s. The President of the United States is the top executive authority for our country, and trumps that of local sheriff.

    Most people seem to know this…. even if they don’t like the president, they acknowledge the primacy of the office.

  11. The idiots on the site care to disagree – they seem to think their sheriff has more power. Its people’s voices like the ones on this site that are leading to innocent children dying. School teachers with guns are gonna stop shooters- didnt happen – wont happen – and yes school shootings arent few and far between. Most of you guys are sick

    • Doug people like you liberal have cause policy that caused problem we did have this problem before school free zone please do libertarian favor go back thru history study what happened when other government disarmed their citizen tell you what they killed them sorry to disappoinet most you but the federal courts have ruled the sheriff office the highs law effercement in the land can kick out any fed official they want.
