Dem running for sheriff of N.C. county has modest proposal for dealing with gun owners
R. Darryl Fisher

After having witnessed the monstrous ineptitude of Broward County, Fla., Sheriff Scott Israel and his loyal deputies in dealing with the events of Feb. 14 of this year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, one might hope that we have seen the worst when it comes to law enforcement.

But a new contender for the job of sheriff in Buncombe County, N.C., promises to make Israel and his underlings look like Boy Scouts. His name is R. Darryl Fisher, he is a Democrat, and he is running on the “Justice for All” platform. It’s a curious name considering Fisher’s notion of justice.

On his Facebook page, Fisher writes, “I am running for Sheriff to ensure the fair and equal treatment for all people of Buncombe County by protecting and serving our communities.” By “equal,” he means literally taking guns out of the hands of citizens who lawfully own them.

And if they refuse to comply? “You’ve heard people say you have to pry my gun from my cold dead hands?” he asked rhetorically in a campaign appearance, then shrugged matter-of-factly and said, “OK.”
