Growing List of Sheriffs, Associations and Police Chiefs Saying ‘NO’ to Obama Gun Control

 

UPDATE: We’ve been contacted by police chiefs and other groups or individuals who want to be counted among the valiant as well! Look for their list after the sheriffs.

The following sheriffs, state sheriff’s associations, and police chiefs have vowed to uphold and defend the Constitution against Obama’s unconstitutional gun control measures.  We applaud these public servants for their courage and conviction.  

The remarkable thing about what these brave men and women are doing is that nobody told them to do it.  Neither the CSPOA nor any other organization that we are aware of contacted sheriffs across the nation and asked them to make statements; this is something sheriffs did on their own, or because their constituents requested it of them.  Soon, people started submitting letters and links to us, and it was such a remarkable thing that we started to collect all the names and list them together.  Then the miracle happened: Other sheriffs across the nation have been inspired by the courage of those who stood first.  Now we see the power of standing, even if you fear you may stand alone.

NOW, powered by the gaining momentum of this movement, the CSPOA has joined with other like-minded organizations in a largely volunteer effort to contact all the remaining sheriffs and ask them for a statement. You can read more about this effort here.

“I call on sheriffs all over this nation to add their voices to the growing numbers of faithful protectors of our freedom.”

A NOTE ABOUT THE FLORIDA SHERIFF’S ASSOCIATION: These guys were some of the first to make our list, but they have turned down to be a great disappointment as they have lobbied hard against a bill designed to protect 2nd amendment rights in the event of a natural disaster. That’s right; they would rather take guns from people when they need them the most. FLORIDA SHERIFF’S ASSOCIATION IS NOW OFF THE LIST!

TOTAL STATE SHERIFFS ASSOCIATIONS: 15

Updated 09/02/2014

Note: A statement from a state association does not necessarily mean that every sheriff in the state supports it. One such case is is Florida, listed below. This statement was voted on and approved by a majority of the sheriffs in the association, but not by EVERY sheriff in the state. While other lists may include all sheriffs within such a state, we have chosen to list associations and individual sheriffs separately.

Updated 09/02/2014

We are in the process of researching and posting links to online statements for all entities on these lists. You can help us by sending us links to statements by any of them.If you know a sheriff or association that should be listed: Please send us the sheriff's full name, county, and state along with a link to an online statement by the sheriff if available. You may also email us supporting documents via the contact page.

Disclaimer: While we encourage all sheriffs and peace officers to join CSPOA, the list below includes members of the CSPOA and any others who have gone on record to uphold their oath by having made public statements, written open letters or contacted us personally and asked to be included. We have indicated which sheriffs are members of the CSPOA.We evaluate each sheriff on a case by case basis, but in general we are looking for sheriffs whose statements contain:

  • A reaffirmation that the sheriff will follow his or her oath and uphold the Constitution
  • An affirmation to support the constitutional second amendment rights of citizens in his or her jurisdiction
NOTE: Some persons or organizations on this list state that they are in favor of further gun restrictions in order to 'keep guns out of the hands of criminals and/or the mentally ill.' The CSPOA is NOT in favor of these programs becasue we realize they just can't work without controls that would severely limit the freedoms of law abiding citizens. We also recognize that throughout history, gun registration is always followed by confiscation. And guess what: a required background check is the same thing as required registration. Let's not be stupid. Once the info is on file, it's going to be abused.

HOWEVER, we are listing individuals who are still trying to have it both ways because we believe they have taken the first positive step by stating that they will defend the constitutional rights of the citizenry. We hope they will soon realize that the two ideas cannot exist together.

Names added recently are marked with the number of days since added, in the 'NEW' column. For instance, 5D = Added 5 days ago.

How NOT To Get On The List

We used to have a list down here of lame sheriffs who are declining to defend the rights of their people, seemingly not realizing what is at stake or trusting the feds to be the only source of truth. Richard Mack has started calling this our Red Coat List. This list has now grown to include not just sheriffs and associations with cowardly stances, but also those who are openly attacking the good men and women who are standing firm. We’re moving this list to another page: The Red Coat List

  1. Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Obama agree, gun control works. This dictatorial regime by Obama and in general the money debasing Federal government must be resisted! FREEDOM AND LIBERTY MAY RING! They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. OBAMA and FEDGOV, are not Caesar, but as a person of faith in the USSA today, it seems the Roman Empire decline applies perfectly, when is the corrupted evil Goverment going to realize it needs freedom liberty natural rights faith and hope and not jack boots monetary debasement .

  2. I sent out n email to the Cuyahoga County Sheriffs Department over a month ago asking where they stand on this and what the plans for this were and still have heard nothing back, not surprising. If any one is interested in flooding this county with emails and letters or calls so that they may realize what the citizens want I suggest sending all emails to shcuy@cuyahogacounty.us calls to (216) 443-6066 faxes to (216) 348-4353 and letters or petitions to Cuyahoga County Sheriff 1215 West 3rd Street Cleveland, Ohio 44113. Please speak out, I cannot afford to move out of state as many others also are not in a position to do so, so if we stand strong this county can too be added to this list.

  3. Sadly, talked with the sheriff of Butte County Idaho over a coffee this morning at my local truck stop. Put him on the bad list, he is a big fan of the dems and CNN and about this list said; It’s silly, and he is too smart to get himself on some list like that.

  4. Sheriff JR Smith of cross county AR has a link leading to the the AR Sheriffs Association,AR Sheriffs Association”The Arkansas Sheriff’s Association supports” query?Shouldn’t that association be included?Just curious is all.It is a little wishy washy on the background checks.
    Also you know much more of this this than I can hope to,but how many sheriffs of a said associations does it take to garner that association to the list?
    Such as 36 counties in OR.and 21 against gun control including Meyers “hmmm”of Marion County,head of the association here.
    I know question,questions. lol.Thanks.

    • Ok, the statement by the AR sheriffs association is wimpy. Too much in favor of gun control to get them on the list, and not enough alone to justify any of their members being on the list. We’ve removed that link from Sheriff JR Smith’s listing.

      We generally don’t list sheriffs just because of a statement by their state association, except in a few cases where they have shown by their actions that they are really standing behind a strong statement. Similarly, we generally don’t list associations by virtue of a certain percentage of the sheriffs in the state standing up.

  5. Why have things slowed down so much, don’t see one new LEO signed on in two weeks. This is a real question, what gives?

  6. What the heck’s wrong with Connecticut ??

    • We’ll tell you what’s wrong… Connecticut legislators abolished the office of sheriff in 2000, so they now have no elected official to interpose for them. They replaced the sheriffs with State Marshals, which are voted in by other state marshals, and therefore not accountable to the people at all.

      • Has this org reached out to state marshalls in ct? Do we have the names of the state marshalls so that they can be contacted and put on record for being for or against the cause? My feeling is they are probably the gestapo for comrade malloy office. hope im wrong.

        • We haven’t, because these marshals have no ability to act independently since they are not elected by the citizenry. They can be fired by their bosses at any time, and are therefore useless as protectors and defenders of the rights of the people.

      • Was wondering if law allows sheriffs from other states to intervene in protecting the constitutional rights of people who do not have a sheriff? In my eyes protecting the constitution should have not bounds ie state lines. Would be great if a lawyer on here could answer this too.

        • Nope… The sheriff has authority only within his jurisdiction. And remember that state lines are one of our important safeguards. The more we erase the state lines, the more we are relying on a central government.

  7. Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg of Clermont County OH. states that he is sworn to uphold the laws of the State of Ohio as well the United States without the authority to interpret the laws constitutionality. He then goes on to ensure the citizens of Clermont county that…
    “neither my Deputies nor I will support or enforce any laws that
    undermine or deprive individuals of their Constitutional rights, whether under the 2nd
    Amendment or otherwise.”
    Not sure what to think of his statement. Seems like he is talking out of both sides of his mouth.
    I would love to see him commit to being a Constitutional Sheriff.

  8. We need to follow this and get other Petitions like this going. We should support John Hikel and hope to God he wins.

    A New Hampshire state representative has filed a petition to remove 189 legislators from the House of Representatives for voting to diminish citizen’s rights of self defense. John Hikel filed an Emergency Petition of Redress and a Verified Complaint of Breach of Oath of Office and Conspiracy against Rights in April against 189 members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives who voted to repeal the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law for “Breach of Oath of Office and Conspiracy against Rights.”

  9. I live in Pearl River county, Ms and I made contact with our Sheriff, David Allison, and he assured me that he is for gun and ammo rights and he would defend these rights. Our Great Govenor, Phil Bryant, signed into law a reguisered person can own any gun and type and amount of ammo he desired, along with open carry, is protected under the 2nd admendment to the Constitution.

    • Hi Carlos, thats great. But i have a problem with the “registration” thing and so does the Constitution. None of us should ever register our firearms, because this has always led to gun confiscation through out history. Food for thought. Take care brother. And can someone please contact our Sheriff in Cuyahoga County Ohio ? Ive attempted to contact him multiple times with no reply. Very disappointing, but like all major counties, (mine has over 1 million citizens) the Elite have a stronghold over them it appears. btw, Way to go Texas ! Looks like you guys have nearly all your Sheriffs. Nice !

  10. I emailed Sheriff Adrian Garcia (Houston, Harris Co) asking if he was member. He did not even respond. His choice but he will never get another vote from me and in fact, anyone who is Pro Gun Control will not either. It’s a crying shame they are there to represent the people and choose not to. I think anyone who takes an oath to preserve, defend and protect the Constitution should be removed from any office when they cross that line.

    • Good, it’s time to vote out people who do NOT support the constitution and find people who DO!

    • Yeah, these guys… Some of what they say sounds good. We would consider this one not strong enough, probably, because they don’t say they will follow their oaths and they don’t say anything about refusing to enforce unconstitutional mandates. It’s all kinda middle-of-the-road, written to appease the public. We also disagree with them on the point of enforcing all existing gun laws, but that one is not a requirement for this list.

  11. People need to make copies of their Individual State Constitutions and learn them as well as the US Constitution. I haven’t read mine in a few years (Montana) and need to dig it out and read it again. But it seems like I remember reading that Montana could secede from the US if the feds try to take our guns…? Even if I’m not remembering correctly…I know it is important that we know our State Constitutions…

    • Thank you so much! I will look into this. I am happy to see other people who care about our great nation band together to defend our constitutional rights!

  12. I’m proud of my Sheriff and I want to see if his name is on the list.

  13. How is it that New Hampshire is supposed to be this mecca for Libertarians, “Live Free or Die” and only one county supports the Sheriff movement? Sounds like Live Free or Die is just a bunch of words that aren’t practiced. Pathetic.

  14. I too am afraid that I have no kind words for Mr. O’ Maley. I AM, however, extremely proud to see Carroll County, Maryland on the list. Thank you Sheriff Tregoning. Thank you for standing your ground and standing up for what is right. It probably makes you extremely unpopular at “political dinner parties” but it makes the people you serve truly proud to have you as their Sheriff . . . .

  15. We had a constitutional sheriff in Carroll County New Hampshire named Christopher Conley, who went to at least one of Sheriff Mack’s conferences. He has many videos posted on YouTube where he spoke out against mortgage fraud foreclosures in support of the people ~ and look what happened to him. He was replaced! I personally think all the elections are predetermined and have little or no relationship to actual voting, which is why they were able to get rid of him as soon as he opened his mouth. The bankers, who support and control the “criminal justice” system and everything else, probably didn’t like his anti-fraud messages.
    On the other hand, our Hillsborough County Sheriff James Hardy received Sheriff Mack’s books and conference invitations as well as letters appointing him as trustee of our estates. And what did he choose to do with that information? He chose to be a corporate shill and to fully support banking fraud as a co-conspirator in treason and war against the people, and to send out his goon-squad SWAT teams to remove people from their homes at gun point. He’s so far away from being a constitutional sheriff like Chris Conley was that he’ll probably receive a medal of honor from the foreign occupiers who are here to destroy America.
    So now it’s up to the people to start forming common law juries to take the criminals out of office. If we can’t figure out how to take back control of our lawful government, we’re probably doomed ~ especially since we have no law enforcement, no constitutional sheriffs, in support of the people here. What we have are corporate drones prepared to commit acts of genocide.

  16. What a wonderful site and association. One of OUR greatest fears is how law enforcement will react in the event of a tyrannical maneuver, not unlike what we are beginning to see. Although my sheriff has not come on board, I applaud and salute all who have.

    Suggestion: I think you should add each and every County in America to your list and have a simple “status” column for those who are “interested” or “have been contacted” or “declined”. You might have those NOT on board in red text. It’s one thing to be on a Red List and another to be a Dissenter on the Blue List.

    Great work and Thank You for your incredible service!

  17. here is a link to statements made on the subject by our Navajo Country Sheriff, KC Clark and also it cites the Apache Country Sheriff…both are from Arizona. I had written Sheriff Clark to specifically ask if he would enforce any additional federal gun control laws including any regarding confiscation, and he answered back right away stating that he and his deputies would be following their Oaths of Office to uphold the Constitution.

    • Yes, this is an excellent one. We’ve added him.

  18. I am so encouraged to see this organization! I am frustrated to not see anyone listed from my home state NJ. If I wasn’t tied here by employment, I’d move somewhere where more people are prepared to address the dangers that are looming for us all.

    • Find a job in another state.

  19. To Admin..
    I can’t understand why this list has not grown lately,, since all this stink in Washington is going on.. You would think more Sheriffs would be waking up.. They really think their going to get their cake and eat it too.. Got news for them , Their gonna be exterminated instead by the New World Order.. They just don’t know who their working for…. I’ sorry to say,, but i see 2nd civil war brewing…….
    Would more news coverage help? Are some sheriffs just not aware of this list, if so how to get their attention to this list

    • Yes, the number probably has grown, but we don’t have the staff to watch everywhere. That’s why we count on site visitors to report sheriffs who should be on the list, and then we check out the links you submit. Occasionally a sheriff contacts us and says he or she wants to be listed, but usually it’s someone else who submits the names.

  20. I recently moved from a small town in central Alabama and I did notice that the sheriff there was on the good list to support our constitution.But one thing has always been puzzling and that is they started about a year ago getting all this military equipment and vehicles in stating in the local paper that they were storing these vehicles for the Goverment.Whats up with that? And I wonder how many other small towns in America are doing this.So I really have to question if the sheriff will really enforce the feds law or protect their citizens. I really don’t trust him at all considering what I have heard of this man.He could just be saying this.People say alot of things but do just the opposite..I hope he is being true..

    • @Teresa; You said, “He could just be saying this.People say alot of things but do just the opposite…”

      Perhaps he took his cue from the disingenuous actions of Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Barrack Obama. He is renowned for promising one thing and delivering Socialism.

  21. I’m just confused as to why more sheriffs in Virginia aren’t participating, so maybe it tells me something about the people running those offices. My wife is on the local police department and she has asked if anyone knows anything about this. So I’m guessing I know where they stand, because most of the officers in her unit are democrats. So it must run all the way up the chain of command. If you know anything else I would appreciated. I see Williamsburg Sheriffs are participating and they aren’t far from where I live. Thanks!

    • Not everyone has the testicular fortitude to stand against tyranny.

    • I too am VERY disappointed in only 1 sheriff in the entire state of Virginia on this list. It’s a shame, one of the 13 original colonies have sold out for money.

  22. Hey guys….We (American Citizens) are with you 100%. As a retired U.S. Navy Chief, I am here to help out in any way I can to escalate your cause. Thank you for standing up for us! Just give me a holler and I will get with you.

    • I will stand up for American constitution any time and will support those Sheriff that do the same. I appreciate them and their courage. I am a Big fan of Joe Arpaio and Jan Brewer, they have America’s citizens best interests.

    • I’m with you, Chief.

  23. God bless you for upholding our God-given rights! The sheriff of Wayne County, in SE Illinois is an awesome Christian man & I’m happy to say he is my friend! I’m not sure if he is aware if all of this. If not, I know he would like to know about it. His name is Mike Everrett. Also, I admire greatly what Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing. He is my hero, & I would like to let him know that! God bless & protect him!

    • Thanks much! Please realize that your sheriff must answer to you, his constituents, and not to the CSPOA. A contact from you regarding our organization will be much more meaningful than a contact from us.

      • Too bad finding the Sheriff’s email is such a quest!

    • Owning a gun is not a “God Given” right it is a responsibility. Our fore fathers knew “we the people” require the ability to defend home, family, and property if need be. Removing law abiding citizen’s guns means that those who are not law abiding have less chance of injury when committing crime. A big hurray to those who can see the wisdom in defending honest citizens right to have and bear arms!

      • Those brilliant men that created our Nation and Constitution created the Second Amendment so “We The People” could protect ourselves and the Nation from a future tyrannical Government. Now we have politicians that are reinventing the meaning of words, phrases, and entire text of the Constitution. Things like the meaning of, “Natural Born Citizen.” To qualify for that prestigious title both of your parents are required to be citizens of the nation; not just one.

    • “God Given”? Really? I’m a gun collector, shooter and will stand for my rights. Yet, where does it say we are given the right by God?

      • Well, how about the Declaration of Independence? “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Inherent in the gift of life which our creator granted us is the right to defend that life. This is what the founders believed, and we still believe it today.

  24. I’m in the State if Massachusettes. I’m in Berkshire County and I don’t know where our Sheriff stands on the 2nd Amendment. Can you give me some feedback on this issue?

    • We rely on feedback from you, the constituents, regarding your sheriff’s stand on issues. We encourage you to contact your sheriff directly or search for statements online and send us whatever you discover.

      • I think I’ll stop by the Yazoo County, MS Sheriff’s Office and have a cup of coffee with my elected Law Enforcement Officer to see where he stands on this issue. A Sheriff is a unique person in that regard. An Elected LEO.

    • What happened in Boston should give you a clue

    • Mississippi just passed HR 2 that clarifies the MS Constitution that has always allowed citizen non-felons the right to Open Carry without the idiotic arrest based upon the fact that a holster “conceals” a portion of the firearm, therefore you are carrying concealed.

      • We need see thru holsters……

  25. Hey Guys,
    I check out your list about once a week and it is always growing, I was wondering if you could put a date next to the new ad ons so I don’t have to wonder who’s on first,LOL. Your doing a great job. Thanks.

    • That’s a great idea. We’ve implemented it, sortof. We’re marking anybody added within the last 2 weeks with the number of days since added. That should make them stand out.

      • I noticed that last night but wasn’t sure what it was..
        On another note,any idea why why there hasn’t been any T.V. coverage of the Kansas nullification?I kinda got my guess’s…but.

        • Yes, several states have now made landmark nullification decisions, which you would think would be big news no matter which side of the issue you are on. For some strange reason, though, we have a media blackout… BUT DID YOU HEAR ABOUT JORDIN SPARKS’ HOT NEW LOOK?

          • Now that is something definitely newsworthy.Jordin Sparks’.I heard it here first! Good reporting.

          • We used to laugh at conspiracy theorists. Now it seems many of them were right on. Nothing else can explain much of the illegal, immoral, unconstitutional acts emanating from Washington and the State Capitols.

  26. how our lawmakers could uphold some one who goes to other countries time and time again only to put america down and bow to to some. now the visit to mexico blame the usa for guns and drugs….that is being a traitor putting your own contry down and blame its people.if one is ashamed of the country you lead… then step down and let someone lead that is proud to be an american.we stand tall for our rights and freedom. i agree with benjamin franklin quote!!!!100%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. It’s pretty bad when the Sheriff of Mass isn’t on the list protecting the people of this state. We need to get him on board with the rest of the sheriffs his name is Sheriff Michael Ashe and he is from the city of Springfield Mass.

  28. May I get a direct answer to a question?

    As a Constitutional Sheriff one of the citizens of your district who is well trained, well prepared and a peaceable law abiding citizen has trouble sleeping at night so a doctor prescribes him some form of anti depressent (I know this happens because it happened to my wife but she would not take them).
    Next thing you know a Federal or State Swat team is attempting to by force remove his weapons and/or arrest him.
    This man considers (rightfully) that they are acting in violation of the Constitution which is in violation of law, therefore he considers them absolutely no different than any other criminal thug who might attempt to enter his home at gun point to harm him and or steal his belongings.

    This man goes to war to rightfully defend himself, his family, and his property and those officers still standing call in ‘Officers Down’

    Does your department immediately respond to assist the ones committing criminal acts, or to defend the one putting his life on the line to defend himself, his family and his property?

    That truly is the only question that matters to the people and eliminates all the BS. Can I get a direct answer and how many of these so called constitutional Sheriffs will give that direct answer?

    • Glen, this is also one I would like to see answered,for similar reasons.I also await,thanks for bring that up.

    • Glen,

      Clearly you’ve already got an answer in mind, so why don’t you just give it? Of course you know that we don’t have info on how many sheriffs would respond in exactly the way you want them to in exactly this scenario.

  29. Sheriff Jim Casias of Trinidad, CO, Sheriff of Las Animas County should be on the list. He supports the Constution, is on the CO sheriff’s list, and has gone on Cam Edwards (NRA) program to publicly show his support.

  30. I am from SC, I thought our sheriff in Aiken had signed! Please advise, he will be getting a call from me!

    • Have not seen a petition from him yet, unless it’s still in the works. Did a quick search online and did not find any statements from him on the issue. If anybody has any info on this, please let us know.

  31. “NOTE: Some persons or organizations on this list state that they are in favor of further gun restrictions in order to ‘keep guns out of the hands of criminals and/or the mentally ill”
    - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

    Can you please identify these traitors so we know who they are?

    One cannot state that they will uphold their Oath to defend the United States Constitution and then turn right around and want further restrictions on the 2nd amendment that forbids any infringements,without being a blatant liar and an enemy to the very Constitution they are claiming they stand behind!!!!

    There is no maybe they will wake up to it. The line is drawn in the sand and everyone with an IQ over 50 realizes it by now. If one attempts to stand with one foot on either side of that line at this point, they become the enemy of both sides.

    If they are heading for my door and there is any doubt in my mind whatsoever, well you get the picture.

    • you said it all.

    • In our estimation this does not qualify. First they say they’re going to leave constitutionality up to the courts; then they state support for a national background check system. And they have the nerve to end off by blathering about considering the children as the community’s most valuable asset. Yes, we all feel that way; that’s why we want to keep America FREE. “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin

      • Maryland is a state TO STAY AWAY FROM. The clone of Ovomit is our Governor! Need I say more… IF I could afford to get out of this rotten state, I would leave tomorrow! OweMalley wants to ‘control His People, stale from them & give it to his “New Americans” aka his Illegal Aliens!
