Texas Sheriff Jack Brandes Stands Up Against Obama’s Gun Control Agenda

January 21, 2013 9:39 am 27 comments

As the Obama administration and their fellow party members across the country push to restrict your second amendment rights, many people feel helpless as they watch their elected officials push the limits of their oath of office.

We see state legislators requiring special background checks to buy a box of ammunition. We see long lists of useful and popular firearms banned due to their color or cosmetic features. We see legislators trying to add gun owners to a database that can be tracked,  just like sex offenders. Forced buy back confiscation plans proposed. The list goes on and on.

Although we would never blame an entire religion of people due to the acts of a few crazed killers on 9/11, the Obama administration is set on punishing an entire nation of law abiding gun owners for the acts of a few mentally ill murderers. This unprecedented attack on our constitutional rights is enough to overwhelm many Americans, but there are beacons of hope out there – local law enforcement officials that are willing to stand up and defend us.

The final line of defense for any community is their local Sheriffs Office, and this week a bold new sheriff from Austin County Texas put out a statement promising that he will keep his oath of office and protect his citizens from unconstitutional federal laws and agencies sent to enforce them.

Sheriff Jack Brandes‘ press release was titled “The Constitution Of The United States Of America and Your Second Amendment Rights” that said the following:

I, Jack W. Brandes, Sheriff of Austin County, will defend the Constitution of The United States of America until there is not a breath left in my body. As Sheriff, I will not allow any agency to come into Austin County and unlawfully disarm law abiding citizens or impose any unlawful unconstitutional orders upon our citizens. I, as Sheriff, will take every measure necessary to protect you and all law abiding citizens of Austin County. – Sincerely, Jack W. Brandes

Sheriff Brandes, and the dozens of other Sheriffs across our nation that have opposed Obama’s unconstitutional agenda are true leaders, and I hope that their brave actions are followed by many other sheriffs throughout the country.

Their support will give hope to millions of Americans that know that if a government fears it’s citizens enough to strip their second amendment rights, they will just as easily take away their fourth and first amendment rights soon after. The second amendment is one of the cornerstones of our free constitutional republic and should never be destroyed.

Sheriff Jack W. Brandes – Austin County Sheriff

    I’m honored that he is my Sheriff! Stand strong Mr Brandes, we need your support.

  • Thank you Sheriff. We need every local law man/woman to be as brave as this Sheriff so that we can make a strong statement to Feds that want to restrict our freedoms.

  • Kudos Mr. Brandes.. Being a single mother and coming from an abusive marriage I thank you from the bottom of my heart. God Bless You..

  • Honored that my county feels this way and supports our Constitutional rights! Thanks Sheriff!

  • All Sheriffs should be this gutsy and American!

    When the feds come, you citizens of Austin county grab your weapons and back him and his deputies up. Don’t just hide at home and let him stand alone.

  • I can only hope that ALL Texas law enforcement officers should be as patriotic and follow your example. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights is all that separates us from the rest of this crumbling world. Without opposition, Obama will turn the country our forefathers gave their lives to protect into another socialist third world country. The Second Ammendment protects the very foundation this country was built on.
    May GOD bless you, for you are surely a true American!

  • Way to go Sheriff, behind you 100%!

  • Howard Paul Burgess

    Way to go, Austin County! Hang in there. The Constitution will still be there when the current administration is gone and takes its rightful place next to Warren G Harding in the history books.

  • I live in Kentucky. My local sheriff has told us he would stand up Against Obama. I think the people of your town are lucky to have you as their sheriff. Good luck.

  • Thank you for standing up for our Second Amendment rights and our Texas citizens!! We all need to stand together against tyrants who want to disarm us and make us prey to armed criminals. I’m proud to live in Austin County and to have you as our sheriff! Sheriff Joe Arpaio would be proud!

  • MICHAEL S. WHITLOCK

    WHAT DO FIREARMS, KNIVES, SCREWDRIVERS, BASEBALL BATS, BALL POINT PENS, & PANTYHOSE HAVE IN COMMON???? ANSWER: THEY ARE TOOLS/IMPLEMENTS WHICH HAVE USEFUL LEGITIMATE PURPOSES IN POLITE SOCIETY. HOWEVER, THEY ARE ALL CAPABLE OF ENDING HUMAN LIFE IF UTILIZED BY EVIL MINDED PERSONS. THESE IMPLEMENTS ARE NOT INHERENTLY EVIL & DO NOT HAVE A WILL OF THEIR OWN TO COMMIT A CRIME—IT REQUIRES A HUMAN BRAIN FOR THAT PURPOSE !!!!

    THANK YOU SHERIFF BRANDES FOR PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF LAW ABIDING AMERICANS TO USE FIREARMS FOR ALL LEGAL & LAWFUL PURPOSES AND FOR RESPECTING THE RIGHTS OF THOSE AMERICAN CITIZENS WHO CHOOSE TO NOT OWN FIREARMS. WE MUST ALL RESPECT THE OTHER PERSONS RIGHT TO SAY “YES” OR “NO” TO THE QUESTION OF FIREARMS OWNERSHIP. THAT IS WHAT MAKES AMERICA & THE STATE OF TEXAS A WONDERFUL PLACE TO LIVE—AMEN.

  • He hits the nail on the head. It’s not the “law abiding gun owners” it’s the mentally ill murderers and lifetime criminals. Thanks Sheriff Brandes for standing up for us and our rights.

    • Thank you for standing up in defense of our 2nd Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Your service will not taken lightly nor forgotten.

  • I am blessed to live in Texas and particularly Austin County. We all need to back our Sheriff 100 %, as he is the head of a much larger body…We the People

    Commissioners Stop Jesus Prayers After Threat By Judge

    Sadly, the right to pray “in Jesus’ name” has been halted by an anti-Jesus Judge.

    Maryland’s Carroll County Commissioners say they’ll reluctantly obey a federal judge’s order barring them from starting their public meetings with sectarian prayers,” reports OneNewsNow

    The five-member, all-Republican board voted 3-2 Tuesday to use only nonsectarian prayers to open their meetings – for now. The resolution runs through Aug. 1, when the board says it hopes the Supreme Court will have ruled on a similar dispute in New York state.

    Some commissioners have routinely prayed to Jesus Christ when it was their turn to ask for divine guidance over board proceedings.

    Obama Admin: Fighting Terrorism but Supporting Terrorists?

    News recently emerged that “the Obama administration is imposing sanctions on an Egypt-based group that has claimed responsibility for attacks against Egyptian officials, Israeli interests and foreign tourists in Cairo and the Sinai peninsula. The State Department said Wednesday [4/9/14] it has designated Ansar Bayt al-Muqadis a ‘foreign terrorist organization.’”

    While ostensibly a laudable move, some—many in Egypt—think this announcement is a ruse to portray the Obama administration as committed to combating terrorism, even as it supports the head of the terrorist-snake, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    For instance, according to Mustafa Zayid, the Coordinator of the Sufi Coalition Forces in Egypt,

    Christian Publisher Plans Pro-’Gay’ Book, Employees ‘Under Threat’

    Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?

    The book’s author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda.

    Despite his frequent use of a Christian-like lexicon, Vines surprisingly admits to running an apostate enterprise that he calls The Reformation Project. An unabashed denier of Biblical teaching on sexual morality, Vines has publicly acknowledged that his goal is to “reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity.” The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, 2014.

    How The ‘Gay’ Jihad Normalized A Filthy Practice

    The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left’s intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of “equality, tolerance and diversity.”

    Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America’s “progressive” power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexual-anarchist, socio-political agenda.

    Judge To Christians: Celebrate Gay Weddings Or Go To Jail

    An administrative judge has ruled Christians must now celebrate sodomy, or face jail.

    Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.

    Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.

    Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.
