California Shasta County Sheriff Backs Second Amendment, Gun Rights

Shasta County Board of Supervisors passes resolution supporting Second Amendment as Sheriff emphasizes gun rights and law enforcement duty

In a refreshing display of unwavering commitment to constitutional principles, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors took a stand for the Second Amendment, reminding us all that our God-given right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Under the able leadership of Sheriff Michael Johnson, this county is ensuring that our cherished rights are preserved for the present and future generations.

Sheriff Johnson, a staunch advocate for the Second Amendment, lent his resounding support to the resolution. Let it be known that this is not a mere gesture; it’s a declaration that gun rights are non-negotiable in Shasta County. With careful consideration and edits, the resolution passed, sending a clear message that Shasta County values and respects the Constitution, recognizing it as the foundation of our freedom.

In a time when political correctness and misguided interpretations of our founding principles run rampant, Sheriff Johnson’s commitment to upholding his oath to the US and California Constitutions is refreshing. He understands that local ordinances must align with these sacred documents. But, let’s not forget that the Constitution was written to protect individual liberties from the tyranny of overreaching government.

The Second Amendment, a cornerstone of our nation’s history, has been the subject of intense debate. The words “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” are as clear as day. Yet, some try to twist and distort this inalienable right. Sheriff Johnson refuses to be swayed by such distortions, understanding that responsible gun ownership is not in conflict with our rights, but rather a safeguard of them.

Concealed Carry (CCW) permits have long been a contentious issue, but Sheriff Johnson and his office provide clarity. They recognize that responsible gun ownership is a hallmark of our society. By vetting applicants for CCW permits, they ensure that law-abiding citizens can exercise their rights while maintaining public safety.

Sheriff Johnson’s commitment to waiting for the outcome of ongoing court cases regarding open carry rights is a prudent move. Rather than rushing to conclusions, he prioritizes thoughtful consideration. This demonstrates his dedication to sound judgment rooted in constitutional principles.

In a climate where gun rights are under relentless attack, the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office stands as a beacon of conservative values. They stand for the Constitution, individual liberties, and the rights of law-abiding citizens. It’s a reminder that true leadership involves not bending to the winds of political correctness, but standing firm for the principles that have made this nation great. Kudos to Sheriff Johnson and the entire Shasta County Board of Supervisors for their unwavering commitment to liberty and justice.
