NC Sheriff’s Deputy Tripp Kester Defends Second Amendment


Tripp Kester Thank you ma’am. My name is Tripp Kester and as you can see I’m here I just want to personally… could you pull that mic up a little bit up? better? Okay I just want to personally and publicly go on record supporting this resolution before us this evening. You know guys, it’s simple: like a lot of them have said the Constitution needs no, no explanation. It’s been enforced for several hundred years now. It’s easy to understand. It says what it means… It means what it says. And the last time I read the Declaration of Independence it specifically reminds all of us that we’re endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. Which means God-given. Among these life liberty and pursuit of happiness and that governments were instituted among men specifically to secure our God-given rights and it says when government becomes destructive to these ends, meaning when they go above and beyond trying to secure our liberties and trying to take them, it’s the right of the people to alter or abolish that government either by voting or ultimately. God forbid, to use our Second Amendment rights to protect ourselves from tyranny. And I’m just asking all of y’all to unanimously join our sister counties of Wilkes, Surry, Stokes, Lincoln and Cherokee and get on board with this thing and publicly demonstrate to us that you’re willing to uphold and honor the same oath I took when I put my hand on God’s Word and held my other hand up to him and swore that I’d give my life to defend that Constitution and I and I hate I’m not trying to be disrespectful but regardless of what y’all do or don’t do, I’m not going to enforce an unconstitutional law. I’m going to protect the people of this County regardless of what’s done here. So I’m just praying, I’ve been praying about this thing all week, that God would touch y’all’s heart and say “hey, Let’s get on board. Let’s do the right thing. Let’s let these people know that we’re here to support them and we’re not going to allocate any personnel Finances resources or facilities to infringe on their liberties.” Thank you

    FYI, your text in the video claims the Deputy is a Captain. That's incorrect according to rank on his shirt. If your video is going to be shared, it might be beneficial to you to correct the error. FYI only!

    OK so he's not going to enforce unconstitutional laws…we need him and other sheriffs to commit to arresting anyone else, from any other agency, who does!

    Doesn’t matter what his rank is, what matters is that he is willing to actually serve the correct way and by the constitution without trespassing or infringing on anyone’s god given/unalienable rights. It’s more of a plus on the title cause that just means more people under his command,which means more people who he can influence to do the right thing. Just an opinion.🤷🏽‍♀️ don’t know how correct it is, it is just my view on what he has said.
