Every sheriff in Florida pledges to protect Second Amendment rights

()   On Sunday, Feb. 17, Watch Dog Wire reported that they received an email from Constitutional Sheriffs stating that all 67 sheriffs in the counties of Florida have signed a pledge declaring that they not only support the Second Amendment, but that they will protect the right of the people to keep and bear arms. 67, that’s every single county in the state.

Florida has become the first state to receive 100% support from every sheriff, which makes a huge statement opposing tyrannical acts against the United States Constitution. A statement that many other states are most likely soon to follow.

Perhaps it’s a bit ironic that Florida is officially the first state with 100% support for the Second Amendment, when it was also a state that favored Obama over Romney this past election year. Although they are both anti-gun… or so-called pro-gun, depending on which state they are currently seeking support from.

The Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner commends the sheriffs of Florida for their decision to not only show their support for the right to keep and bear arms, but for pledging to protect that right for all of the American people.

Sheriffs who have signed the pledge are listed below. If you are a Florida resident, be sure to drop a letter, email or phone call thanking your sheriff for standing up for our Second Amendment rights.

    As a new transplant to Winter Park/Orlando, FL, attending FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY, I’ve noticed the High Quality and Rapid response of the Police, Sheriffs and Fire Depts., here. I’m Glad to see your Support of ‘WE THE PEOPLE’. My father spent 11 Months in Stalag IV-B to Keep Our Beautiful Country, which was actually Set-up by the most advanced Spiritual Masters as the Archetype for all the world, to Keep America Forever free of Fascist, Nazism, and nwo-ism, which is all the same thing. Now, would you Please, do like ICELAND did, and Arrest All the Wall-Street gangster-Banksters, who betray this country everyday, with every fetid breath they take. Thanks!

    It surprises me that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is listed as upholding the Second Amendment and that he would protect my right to bear arms. A few months back Israel was on CBS Miami Facing South Florida: Sheriff Scott Israel and Facing South Florida: Gun Control http://miami.cbslocal.com/2013/01/27/facing-south-florida-gun-control/ and http://miami.cbslocal.com/2013/01/27/facing-south-florida-sheriff-scott-israel/.

    SCOTT ISRAEL IS A GUN GRABBER, AND THIS REPORT THAT SAYS HS IS NOT IS A LIE.

    Israel states we should not have the right to "assault weapons" and that there should be gun registration. Israel is a hard core leftist and would confiscate your arms in a second if he could. Israel is of the mind that "black rifles are bad" but a wood stocked bolt action is good. How this so called report that all these Sheriffs swore to protect my rights to bear arms came to be is highly suspect. I bet there are many more liers on this list.

    This was Sheriff Israel’s reply that was delivered to me around January 31, 2013.

    Jan 31

    Sheriff Israel, like many, was very disturbed by the senseless killings
    in Newtown, Aurora, and other communities around the nation. He believes
    we as Americans, must take a serious, responsible and multi-faceted
    approach to the problem of rising gun violence in our nation.

    This includes developing a comprehensive national approach to the
    problem with reasonable gun control measures, enhanced school safety
    precautions, and improved mental health services. The Sheriff supports
    legislation to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban, banning large
    capacity magazines and armor-piercing bullets, and having a uniform
    national background check required before any sale or transfer
    (including private sales and gift transfers) of firearms. In so doing,
    this will still protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun
    owners while imposing reasonable restrictions to better protect our
    communities as a whole.

    Thank you,

    Broward Sheriff’s Office

    In addition, he mentioned during his 2008 campaign was a member of Homeland Security; can we say "conflict of interest?"
