Asshole Law, Loophole Reaction

Give this man a 2A medal:

Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County, Va. proposed a way to exempt citizens from newly proposed Virginia gun laws that might otherwise bar them from owning certain firearms.
In a Wednesday Facebook post, Jenkins warned that some of the gun laws proposed in the Virginia General Assembly would “disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense,” and in turn suggested he would confer the label of deputy on thousands of law-abiding citizens to include them in law enforcement carve-outs included in new gun legislation.

For those ignorant of Virginia’s counties, here’s where Culpeper County lies:

In other words, close enough to D.C. that would make a difference.


  1. Wonderful. Make a new law to make up for a previous bad law. The sheriff should declare Culpeper county a “sanctuary” county and therefore not beholding to the unconstitutional state laws and that the very first state politician that says anything about it will get set on fire and dragged down the main street in the state capital.

    1. The sheriff isn’t talking about (illegally) making new law, but following existing law in a creative way, and Culpeper County already is a 2A sanctuary county. However, just because it is one doesn’t stop city police forces and state law enforcement organizations from enforcing a state law. The sheriff and his deputies won’t enforce these unconstitutional laws, or assist the state in doing so. By deputizing thousands of people, he’s making them part of law enforcement and making them untouchable by the state for violating one of these tyrannical laws. It would be a grand finger in the progressives eye.
