Former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack sounds off on gun control

Posted: February 23, 2013 at 12:30 pm   /   by

As we have been reporting for many weeks, sheriffs across the country have been going public with written and spoken declarations that they will not enforce federal gun laws that exceed the Second Amendment. Richard Mack, the outspoken former sheriff of Graham County, pulls no punches in the video below, stating his view that these kinds of actions by sheriffs are the best means by which to deal with federal encroachment upon the individual right to bear arms.

In the 1990s, Mack successfully sued the Clinton Administration over the Brady Act, helping to weaken what otherwise might have been a highly draconian series of laws.
