A Virginia sheriff has vowed to deputize thousands in his county should the state government pass stringent gun control measures.
The Culpepper County Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to proclaim the county a Second Amendment Constitutional County last week, according to Fox News. At the meeting, Sheriff Scott Jenkins announced that he would deputize masses of Culpepper residents to protect their Second Amendment rights.
“My office will always encourage and support our citizens in firearms training, concealed carry permits, and the ability to defend themselves and their families,” Jenkins’s office wrote in a Facebook post during the meeting. "If necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.
In the hours, days and weeks following the death of a loved one, there are times when the grief, sadness and mourning gives way to the blessed relief of a light moment when one is not crying and inconsolable.
I dont know the details, but I gather from comments in another thread, that this is a picture of a father whose child was shot dead at a school massacre. And there are some who criticize his seeming ‘joy’ at his child’s death.
With those assumptions, I base my comments.
The intrusion of the media may have forced him to resume playing the role expected of him despite the naturalness of the mood swings. One minute wracked by tears and the next moment laughing heartily at something funny.
This is irresponsible reportage or posting to suggest a father would not be overwhelmingly sad at the death of his child just because he was caught by news cameras smiling or laughing.
You capitalize on his cycles of grief and make it seem perverse.
Damn the grown up “children” in the media who know nothing about life but to use it for their own immature purposes.
