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.
