Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy Tripp Kester told the Davidson Board of Commissioners this week that he supported a Second Amendment resolution to protect gun rights and that he “swore an oath” to protect the United States Constitution. He added that as a law enforcement officer, he would not enforce any law infringing upon the right to bear arms.  More

“The Constitution needs no explanation; it’s been enforced for several hundred years, now. It’s easy to understand. It says what it means; it means what it says,” he continued.

“And the last time I read the Declaration of Independence, it specifically reminds all of us that we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights — which means God-given — among these, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.”

“Governments were instituted among men, specifically, to secure our God-given rights,” Kester noted. “And it says when government becomes destructive to these ends … it’s the right of the people to alter or abolish that government, either by voting or, ultimately, God forbid, to use our Second Amended rights to protect ourselves from tyranny.”

“I took an oath,” the deputy said, and I “swore that I’d give my life to defend that Constitution.”

“I’m not trying to be disrespectful, but regardless of what you guys do or don’t do, I’m not gonna enforce an unconstitutional law,” he added, sparking thunderous applause.

This is what real leadership looks like!
