Sheriff Deputy Tripp Kester became a viral sensation when Davidson County in North Carolina declared themselves a 2nd amendment sanctuary.
Kester vowed to put the constitution first in an emotional speech that has quickly become a sensation on social media.
Sheriff Deputy Tripp Kester:
I just wanna personally and publicly go on record supporting this resolution.
The Constitution needs no explanation; it’s been enforced for several hundred years, now. It’s easy to understand. It says what it means; it means what it says.
And the last time I read the Declaration of Independence, it specifically reminds all of us that we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, which means God given — among these, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
Governments were instituted among men, specifically, to secure our God given rights and it says when government becomes destructive to these endd, it’s the right of the people to alter or abolish that government, either by voting or, ultimately, God forbid, to use our Second Amended rights to protect ourselves from tyranny.”
I took an oath I swore that I’d give my life to defend that Constitution.
I’m not trying to be disrespectful, but regardless of what you guys do or don’t do, I’m not gonna enforce an unconstitutional law.
