Sheriff Refuses to Enforce Unconstitutional Executive Orders in Arizona County

Arizona’s Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has sent a letter to Obama stating that he will not obey unconstitutional executive orders banning firearms.

Babeu criticizes Obama and the political class in Washington for exploiting the Sandy Hook massacre and other tragic events to push an unprecedented gun control agenda.

“Do you honestly feel that any criminal or someone who is mentally ill will obey an executive order made by you related to ‘gun control?’” he writes in the letter dated January 16.

“I have sworn a solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America when I was first sworn in as an Army Private, later as an Army Officer, then as a Police Officer and now twice as the constitutionally elected Sheriff,” he writes. “You too Mr. President have taken the same oath, therefore I am gravelly alarmed – just as most Americans are that you would attempt to circumvent the Constitution of the United States.”

He then informs Obama that he will not obey “any ‘law’ or regulation created by an executive order of your office which is contrary to what the Constitution of the United States of America says” and pledges that he will not infringe on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens in Pinal County, Arizona.

Obama and the White House have not responded to Babeu’s letter.
