WATCH: Crowd erupts with huge standing ovation when NC sheriff deputy tells board of commissioners “I will not enforce ANY unconstitutional law!”

A North Carolina sheriff deputy got crazy applause earlier this week at a Davidson County Board of Commissioners meeting where they were seeking to make Davidson County a Second Amendment protection county. The applause came Tripp Kester, the sheriff deputy in uniform, made clear that he would not enforce any unconstitutional law in his jurisdiction:

Here’s more from Journal Now:

Davidson County gun owners can claim a victory as the Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to make the county a Second Amendment protection county.

The board, which is made up of seven Republicans, heard from 20 members of a standing-room-only crowd of more than 150 during a 30-minute public-comment period. Every person who spoke did so in favor of the proposed Second Amendment protection resolution.

Perhaps the biggest cheers of the night came for Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy Tripp Kester, who spoke while wearing his sheriff’s office uniform. Kester called the Second Amendment “God given,” and called on the board to publicly demonstrate its willingness to protect those rights. Speaking with a hardened look on his face, Kester said as a law enforcement officer he would not enforce any law infringing on his right to keep and bear arms.

“I’m going to protect the people of the county regardless of what’s done here,” Kester said. “Let’s get on board and let’s do the right thing. We’re not going to allocate any personnel, finances, resources or anything to infringe on their liberties.”

Kester’s short speech was fantastic and it’s great to see North Carolina sheriff deputies willing to stand up for the second amendment.

Now you may have noticed this meeting is being said to have happened in Virginia. As you can clearly see it is not, so feel free to share this to get the word out.
