|Sheriff Keith Gary and Deputies of Greyson County, Texas|
From: Sheriff J. Keith Gary
For: General Release
Date: February 7, 2013
During my 17 years as sheriff of Grayson County, Texas, I have always worked to make sure that my office has respected the rights of the people without regard to race, religion, or creed. Respect for the law, even by those in positions of government authority, is a hallmark of the rule of law and underpins our great democracy.
Among the rights of the people that deserve, and in fact demand respect by lawful authority, is the right of the people to keep and bear arms as embodied in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. This is one of the rights that our forefathers saw as inherent to a free people. I strongly support it.
Having laid out my position on the Constitution, law and order, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms, it goes without saying that neither I nor my deputies will take any action that infringes on the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
