Sheriffs: Feds can't take away Utahns' 2nd Amendment rights [View all]

Source: KSL.com

SALT LAKE CITY The Utah Sheriffs' Association has written an open letter to President Barack Obama, outlining its opposition to executive orders announced this week altering gun laws.

Within four hours of being posted on the Cache County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, the letter had garnered more than 150 comments and 1,000 "likes."

"No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights... has given them.

Sheriffs offices are now claiming to be law makers, government executives and judges at the risk of the population. This is not their job. It is not their pledged and elected right. There's is only to OBEY and carry out official orders.

We are facing tyranny in the making.
