Founding Fathers didn’t want citizens arms race

A Constitutional Sheriff: one that upholds the duly enacted laws of the U.S. and the State of New York. This sounds good on its face; as long as the sheriff or his department doesn’t cherry pick the laws to enforce based on some popularity contest. AKA THE SAFE ACT.

As a citizen voter, gun owner, property owner and family man, I seriously expect the new sheriff to enforce the SAFE Act and turn over to the District Attorney all incidences of violations for prosecution.

The answer to gun violence is not more guns in the hands of more people. It is a ban on certain weapons from the procession of certain people, maybe you.

The Constitutional Founders of the Second Amendment did not unleash a citizens’ arms race. Their intent was the right for the citizen’s State Militia to take up arms to fight an enemy.

Good luck Randy, you have a sacred task before you.
