Members of the Kentucky Sheriffs' Association voted unanimously today to support the Constitutions of the United States and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Citizens across Kentucky have been calling county law enforcement offices seeking clarification of sheriffs' positions on gun rights in the face of recent federal rhetoric about confiscating private weapons.
"A lot of people have been calling and we just wanted to clarify that we do support the Constitutions our members have sworn to uphold," Jerry Wagner, Kentucky Sheriff Association Executive Director.
This comes less than three weeks after Jackson County Sheriff Denny Peyman created a national firestorm by proclaiming that he would defy federal efforts to violate citizens' Second Amendment rights.
