Utah Sheriffs’ Association pledges to defend citizens from “tyrannical subjugation”


The Utah Sheriff’s association sent a letter to Obama pledging to defend the 2nd amendment and protect citizens from “tyrannical subjugation.” The letter insinuates that the elected Sheriffs of Utah would defend citizens against a Federal gun confiscation.

The letter was sent on behalf of all elected officials. However, Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder immediately ran to the media to disavow the letter.

Three Utah Sheriffs have stated or insinuated, independent of the letter, that they would refuse to comply with Federal gun confiscations.

Davis County Sheriff Todd Richardson (refuse to enforce gun laws mandated by president without congressional act)

Weber County Sheriff Terry Thompson (insinuated that he would refuse)
