To: the People of [county], Republic of [state]
cc: Vice President Joe Biden, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington DC 20501
I am the duly elected sheriff of [county], and the highest law enforcement officer in the county.
I freely and without reservation or purpose of evasion took an oath of office to well and faithfully support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That is the highest oath of my office. I hereby renew that oath.
The organic laws – those established by the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Northwest Ordinance, and the Constitution as lawfully amended – define the nature of our nation as consisting of sovereign People with unalienable rights, and government instituted by them that lawfully exists by, and derives its limited and enumerated authority solely from, the consent of the People. The Bill of Rights, which the People required before ratification, affirms those principles.
The Second Amendment reads:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The meaning and purpose is clear and plainly understood.
The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed, a well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State.
The right to keep and bear arms is an unalienable right, designed to protect the People from the unlawful overreach or encroachment of government. It is not a privilege subject to the whims of government, nor is it a crime to acquire, own, keep, possess, bear, or lawfully use firearms.
In accordance with the clear and plainly understood purpose of the organic laws, I and my deputies shall not within the borders of my county enforce, or permit to be enforced, any legislation, regulation, executive order, or other government directive or action that infringes upon the People’s unalienable rights.
In summary, I refuse to participate, or stand idly by, while my citizens are treated as criminals for exercising their unalienable rights.
Sheriff [name]
[county], Republic of [state]
