Brad Rogers, the Sheriff of Elkhart County, Indiana, warned President Obama that he would disregard executive orders to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
On a broadcast of WNIT’s Politically Speaking this past weekend, Rogers said that “If President Obama today said, ‘I’m creating an executive order that all sheriffs and police chiefs around this nation need to start registering firearms,’ I will disregard it.”

Elkhart County, Indiana Sheriff Brad Rogers made a covenant declaration to his citizens that he will “disregard” any executive orders sent by President Obama that infringes on their Second Amendment rights.
Rogers was a guest, along with several other members of the community, invited to talk about the government’s call for more gun control and to speak on gun rights in the wake of the recent university shootings.
“We’ve always had this conversation that we need more reasonable gun control put in place,” Rogers said. “But we already have what is reasonable, in my opinion, and in fact it’s probably overdone.”
A video from 2013 shows the Sheriff speaking out against gun control to a group of hundreds of supporters.
During the rally, Rogers stated:
I want to affirm my commitment and my oath of office to uphold the Indiana and United States constitutions, the Second Amendment and all of the Bill of Rights. I will not allow gun confiscation in my county.
I will not enforce any additional anti-gun laws and I stand with you for liberty as a law enforcement officer, as a sheriff and hopefully to light the flame across this nation for other sheriffs to also stand for liberty and not tolerate the constitutional usurpations that are occurring at the federal level.

Comment: Should a sheriff uphold the laws as dictated by President Obama, or is he bound by the Constitution above all else?
