An Open Letter to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County, Arizona.

January 20, 2013

Dear Sheriff Arpaio:

In a recent interview with Mike Broomhead on KFYI 550 AM in Phoenix, Arizona, when asked about a possible firearm confiscation law coming from the Obama Administration, you stated, "I may not enforce that federal law."  Unfortunately, the word "may" puts us in the ambiguous realm of you may or may not enforce a federal firearm confiscation law.  That coupled with your comment that you would be purchasing semi-automatic and fully automatic weapons for your department gives one additional pause for concern as to how these weapons are going to be used.  Yes, you said they would be used against the "bad guys" but one has to wonder, who will you consider to be the "bad guys" in an Obama federal gun confiscation scheme?

You said that you have taken an oath numerous times to support and defend the U.S. Constitution.  I believe that you have a true love for the U.S. Constitution and for the God given freedoms that it recognizes and guarantees.  I do believe that the citizens of Maricopa County deserve a more definitive answer as to where you and your office stand regarding a potential federal firearm confiscation order from the Obama Administration.  Without equivocation, will you enforce or ignore a federal firearm confiscation law by the Obama Administration?

I have included an incomplete list of county sheriffs who have, without equivocation, stated that they will abide by their oaths to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic and will support the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights and they will not participate in any federal gun confiscation scheme.  As the Toughest Sheriff in America, I believe that your name and your office should be at the top of the list of sheriffs who will honor their oaths to defend the people's Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

I would encourage you to clear up this ambiguity at your earliest convenience in an M.C.S.O. Press Release.  The citizens of Maricopa County have a right to know exactly where you stand on this issue.
