Virginia Sheriff to Deputize Citizens in Response to Proposed Gun Control

Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins vowed to “deputize residents in his county if the new Democratic-led legislature enacts gun control measures.” He made this vow during a Board of Supervisors meeting. Everyone in the panel agreed to declare the county a Second Amendment Constitutional County.

“Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions,” Jenkins said on a Facebook post. Jenkins said he plans to properly screen and deputize law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.

Other counties in the state passed similar resolutions in response to the expected gun control legislation. “Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam has said his party will push for gun control measures since it regained control of the Virginia General Assembly,” reported Fox News.
