Supporting Ken Merritt

I was disappointed that you used your “Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down” column to respond to the situation in such a negative way.

I would like to express my support of Wood County Sheriff Ken Merritt and other West Virginia sheriffs and those across the country for signing a petition stating they would not enforce any federal assault weapons ban if one is passed. They have taken an oath to enforce the law, but not laws that disregard the Constitution of the United States. The current administration is bent on government take over of our rights. I am a Vietnam veteran and will support those who defend the freedoms we have.
