Sheriff Mack Fights Gun Control

When I get on the phone with Richard Mack, better known as "Sheriff Mack"—NRA darling, militia hero, and former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona—he tells me he doesn't personally own that many guns. But he won't say how many: "That's between me and the good Lord." Mack isn't a hunter, either. For him, the specter of new gun control legislation is all about the Constitution. Which is why he has been leading an all-out crusade to prevent the federal government from taking away your firearms—if they ever were taking away your firearms. The idea is to convince  county sheriffs around the nation to refuse to enforce any new gun laws/Erika Eichelberger, Mother Jones. More here. (Wikipedia photo of Richard Mack)

Question: Was it only a year ago that an invitation to Sheriff Mack to speak at the Kootenai County Lincoln Day Dinner split the local Republican Party in half? My how time flies.
