Sheriff Babb pledges to uphold gun owners’ rights

Sheriffs across Georgia and America are lining up on the issue of gun control. Fayette County is no different, with Sheriff Barry Babb echoing the stance of the recent Ga. Sheriffs’ Association statement supporting the 2nd Amendment and the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

Babb, along with Griffin Judicial Circuit sheriffs Jimmy Thomas, Wendell Beam and Dan Kilgore, have released a statement saying they unanimously agree with the Ga. Sheriffs’ Association’s stance on gun control.

“The sheriffs took an oath to support the Constitution and will stand by the 2nd Amendment. The sheriffs will aggressively oppose federal or state legislation which infringes upon law abiding citizens’ right to bear arms,” the Ga. Sheriff’s Association press release said.

The statement also noted the agreement to support legislation that would effectively penalize criminals who use firearms in the commission of crimes.

Sheriff’s statewide were absolutely being bombarded by people wanting to know where we stand on gun control, Babb said.

“We’re trying to let people know, including in the Griffin Judicial District, that we’re all on one page,” said Babb. “I’ve had people ask if I’m going to take their guns away. I took an oath to uphold the Constitution and to protect the citizens. And the Constitution includes the 2nd Amendment. I’m in the business to arrest criminals and protect the citizens. We’re there for the citizens.”

Please protect us if we go to a Lynn Westmorland rally so we don't get gunned down like the folks who went to that rally for Representative Giffords. Including the 6 year old girl. When we go to the movies, please protect us from the terrorists guys coming in the back door opening fire on the audience. And wehe nwe send our kids to school, please protect them from the home grown terrorist types armed t othe teeth hell bent on killing as many kids as possible because they hate their mothers or something.

Sherriff Babb please consider the rights of the people not to get gunned down in the course of their normal daily lives.

Please do not let these insane stupid crimes of terror and mass murder come to our community.

Thank you for assuring the citizens that our rights are protected in a civil and non- violent environment.
