Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy Tripp Kester, speaking during a board of commissioners meeting Tuesday night, gave a fiery defense of the Constitution and Second Amendment rights, “personally and publicly” going on record that he will not enforce an unconstitutional law.
“I’m going to protect the people of the county regardless of what’s done here,” Kester said. “Let’s get on board and let’s do the right thing. We’re not going to allocate any personnel, finances, resources or anything to infringe on their liberties.”
“I am not being disrespectful, but regardless of what you do or don’t do, I am not going to enforce an unconstitutional law,” he added, garnering a raucous applause from the packed room.

Shortly after his speech, the board voted unanimously to become a Second Amendment sanctuary, joining several other North Carolina counties that have approved some form of gun rights affirming resolution over the last few weeks.
