    GCO Sues over “Man with a Gun” Incident

    GCO filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia against the Sheriff of Richmond County and a Richmond County deputy who detained a GCO member and seized his legally-carried pistol. After checking it to see whether it was stolen, the deputy confiscated the firearm until “proof of purchase” could be provided, and the Sheriff’s Department then refused to return it. The deputy insisted that it is against the law to carry a pistol openly.
    This sort of police misconduct is fortunately rare, but it is becoming more common as more Georgians begin carrying firearms.

    Truly disgusting in a sister Southern state. Hope the purveyors of the law learn what it means to enforce and not MAKE the law with this suit.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Sheriff Ronnie Strength should be fired immediately. He has intentionally failed to uphold his oath of office.

    Good luck devo1123.

    Sherrifs are elected and therefore cannot be fired. Maybe recalled or impeached, but never fired.

    Since they can't fire him... I vote KEEL-Hauling him... naw thats too good. Make him kiss the gunners daughter...naww....

    Flogging? no... what we need is something truly horrible for a punishment..

    I know... set him adrift with Obama and Biden and Moammar Kadafi aka three men in a tub...rub a dub dub:celebrate or well the four stooges if you count the sheriff.






    And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms....The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants"
