On the eve of President Obama’s second inauguration, Collin County Sheriff Terry Box posted a message on his personal Facebook page that certainly ignited debate amongst the citizens of Collin County.
Box, who has been Collin County Sheriff for 28 years, posted a short message Sunday stating that he and his deputies will not enforce any new federal laws that infringe on a citizen’s constitutional rights, specifically the second amendment which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.
“If the laws passed aren’t constitutional, I won’t support it or enforce it,” Box told TownSquareBuzz.com when reached for comment.
