[Watch] Sheriff Says “If Feds Take Our Guns, There Will Be Civil War, No Question About It”

094-sheriff-reid-610

Sheriff Mike Lewis describes the culture and the lifestyle of the eastern shore region of Maryland in which he lives as being founded in hunting and fishing. The Wicomico County Sheriff says life is simple in his county.

Sheriff Lewis says he’s been holding a gun literally since he could walk. He says, “It’s part of my everyday life to be armed, and I don’t go anywhere without my gun.”

He takes his responsibility to those who elected him very seriously and says that their guns hurt no one. Literally, no one, if they’re left alone. He says that it’s when you put a gun into the hands of a bad person that the trouble develops and that is where any emphasis needs to be.

He says plainly, “We do not need to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right to bear arms. That I get upset over, I really do.”

Sheriff Lewis says he’s made a vow and a commitment that as long as he’s the sheriff in his county, he “will not allow the federal government, to come in here and strip my citizens of their right to bear arms.” He adds, “I can tell you this, if they attempt to do that, it would be an all-out civil war, no question about it.”

Sheriffs like Lewis are members of the community they serve, not a distant unaccountable bureaucrat. They are our front line of defense against tyranny.
