I just got off the phone with Sheriff Ivey. He has been inundated with emails regarding the 2nd amendment debate going on nationally. He asked me to communicate to everyone that his position on the 2nd amendment has not changed from that which he expressed during the campaign. He will defend the 2nd Amendment with every resource he has at his disposal. He said further, that while he hopes it never comes to it, should a confrontation ever arise with the federal government over this issue, he will make all of us very proud to have him as our sheriff. Depending on his schedule he will be our speaker at either our March or April meeting so you will have the opportunity to hear from him directly at that time on this and other issues.
