Sheriff Candidate Jokes about Killing Defiant Gun Owners to Delight of Bloomberg Moms

Sheriff Candidate Jokes about Killing Defiant Gun Owners to Delight of Bloomberg Moms
“You’ve heard people say ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold dead hands.’ OK.” Buncombe County Sheriff candidate R. Daryl Fisher.

“On Wednesday March 7, 2018, I was asked to address a group in West Asheville and relay information as it pertains to current gun legislation in NC.,” Buncombe County Sheriff candidate R. Daryl Fisher told visitors to his campaign Facebook page. “I took this opportunity to relay proposals on what I believe to be sensible gun legislation.

“A group”?  Why not just come out and say it was Michaels Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action?

“As a candidate for Sheriff, I cannot enact legislation,” Fisher goes on to deflect. “If elected Sheriff I cannot enact legislation. But as a candidate for Sheriff, I can propose what I believe to be sensible gun legislation. It is up to our legislators to determine what becomes law.”

What he’s obscuring is that law enforcement officials can be extremely influential in persuading lawmakers to act, and as sheriff, he would enthusiastically enforce citizen disarmament edicts. That he would take an oath to the Constitution seems not to trouble Fisher, as there are evidently no citizen disarmament laws he would refuse to issue to his subordinates or to obey himself.

He would enthusiastically enforce forbidding citizens old enough to serve in the military or the “unorganized militia” of U.S. Code from purchasing guns. He would ban standard capacity magazines for everyone (except the “Only Ones”), along with any firearm that has “some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia [or] is any part of the ordinary military equipment, or that its use could contribute to the common defense.”

How far would he go?

“There is one statement that many up to now have taken offense to,” Fisher notes, getting to the reason he felt compelled to post a Facebook clarification. “That statement starts out with language similar to, ‘Don’t believe the scare tactics,’ and I say that some gun enthusiast might say, ‘You will have to pry my gun from my cold dead hands.’

“This is also a movie quote. The crowd laughed and I made a joke. I admit the joke was a mistake and I should not have joked.”

He’s glossing it over. He’s taking heat because his “joke” involved killing gun owners who would not surrender their firearms. What good would the Second Amendment be if we did? See for yourself at @3:00 into the following video:

[ot-video type=”youtube” url=””]

“What about people that already had weapons? Well, I’m gonna tell you now, don’t buy into the scare tactics, don’t believe the scare tactics, because you’ve heard people say ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold dead hands,’” Fischer admonished.

“OK, he grinned and shrugged to delighted laughter and applause of the Bloomberg Moms.

So don’t believe your lying eyes and ears? Ther afterthought of adding “Whenever you pass away…” was just that.  His audience had already registered its unqualified gleeful approval, and besides, stealing from the dead or their grieving survivors isn’t much of a mitigator.

Fisher goes on to trivialize that “joke” by saying taking guns “would be unconstitutional because that would constitute what is called an ex post facto law” and that “responsible gun owners have nothing to worry about.”

What he’s not saying is that edicts could be passed, as they have in California, requiring gun owners to register the firearms he wants to see banned, and anyone who does not comply will be “fair game” for his shrug and “OK.” He also supports other prior restraint edicts that could order guns removed from citizens who have not been convicted of any crime. And face it, any official who would willingly and forcefully violate the Second Amendment is hardly a trustworthy arbiter of what’s Constitutional.

“Being downright rude, making false statements, making half-truths or being utterly disrespectful is unacceptable,” Fisher protests, like he’s the injured party, before urging voters to “properly voice your opinion … on election day.”

They will and whomever they pick will be predictably big on “gun control. ”  Fisher’s one of three Democrat candidates out of a field of seven, Buncombe County “is the only Democratic bastion in western North Carolina” and it went big for both Obama and Hillary.

They’ll be “OK” with a badged gun-grabber.

  1. Another Law Enforcement Officer who pledges to enforce the laws with which he agrees and ignore the ones he doesn’t (to include OUR Constitution). Definitely not Sheriff material, and not PEACE OFFICER material.

    1. This is what happens when these traitors are tolerated when they raise their heads.They hide behind the 1st Amendment and then when they smell power they censor the 1 Amendment when is your turn to speak.Every single one of them should have been arrested immediately they showed attitude against our Constitution and the Bill of Rights…

  2. R. Daryl Fisher is a traitorous piece of scum. I bet he would love the chance to blow away a citizen who refused to turn over a banned firearm obtained after a ban. He has no respect for the Second Amendment, nor does he seem to know its purpose in guarding us against tyranny. And the reason is, he is a little tyrant.

    1. This SOB needs a psychiatric exam to determine whether he is a threat to himself or others, His guns should be confiscated pending results. He is NO asset to any counrty…he is a nut bar. As for the cheering crowd…ha…bring em on………

      1. This is how the left thinks!!!!The right needs to raise up and let these idiots know you are NOT going to take any guns from honest citizens, without reprisal !!!

      2. If this POS tried some extra judicial gun confiscation, I don’t think it would end well for him. Just the spark needed to start a second American revolution!! I hope the good people in SC are smart enough not to elect this anti-American libtard to any position. And to the hags of Moms Demand Action I extend a middle finger and say;
        MOLON LABE!!!

      3. He is listed in the article as being from Buncombe County, North Caroloina (Asheville NC is the county seat there). Very liberal/socialist/communist area of the state. There ARE some REALLY good people embedded there too. I used to live there.

    2. Well said!!! I wonder if tyrannical buffoons such as that lad if they become too common are what light the fuse for a conceivable Revolutionary War Two?

  3. This is really close to home for me, just one county between us. Asheville is a really unique place and has a lot to offer. However, it is locally known as the San Francisco of the South. It is full of hippies and homosexuals. Those who are not, are old school retired hippies who went on to become liberal professors, social workers, or another cut of the same cloth. Some Hollywood actors reside there as well. I met and talked with Harry Anderson who was known for being the quirky judge on a show called “Night Court”. He was a very rude and condescending ass in my opinion. I wouldn’t walk across the street to meet him again, but I would to avoid him. Asheville has been a liberal bastion for a very long time. Then the Obama democrats had their national convention in Charlotte, NC and they flipped that city to a liberal hell hole. Obama handed out federal jobs to the mayor and others when the convention was over. I’m sure those were promised in advance. There is talk of republicans having their next convention in Charlotte. I hope they do before we lose the entire state. The governor’s race was very narrowly won by Roy Cooper, but nonetheless, we now have a leftist governor. The south is starting to go south. Lord, help us.

    1. It really is like a metastasizing cancer. Sad…I would have thought the South would be the strongest defense. Keep fighting brother. We started a Warwick Common Sense series to take back the local public square…one heart and mind at a time. We are finding that the Left does not do well when confronted with bold truth.

  4. In North Carolina? This azzclown needs to be in a mental institution not running for Sheriff. WTF?

  5. Its kinda ironic that he says we cant come back and take a gun already legally purchased because it would be an expos facto law ie. unconstitutional but we can infringe on your secound amendment rights to keep and bear arms without being unconstitutional ???? These idiots will be the first ones to scream when everyone starts taking their cue and deciding which laws they want to follow. Oh that reminds me of a quote from a case i heard about think it appropriate here to recall the closing words of Mr. Justice Brandeis’ great dissent in Olmstead v. United States,277 u.s. 438, 471,485 (1928):”In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good for ill it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, il breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. All I can say is people that we have entrusted with authority need to live up to that trust or they might regret the reprecussions.

    1. “Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, il breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” The heart of Soros’ prayer…

  6. I live in North Carolina. worked most of my life here and retired here. I am ashamed that we have a person like this in our state. He does not deserve to be a friggin dog catcher let alone a Sheriff.

  7. My cousin is a deputy sheriff in northeastern Indiana. He and ALL the other deputies have told the Sheriff that, should they be ordered to disarm local citizens, they will all quit. And that’s the way it should be nationwide.

  8. Will these ladies clap and laugh when the other Constitutional rights are being taken? Because once the Second is gone, the rest will follow soon after. It’s amazing to me that these people claim their goal is stop gun violence–yet they’re perfectly okay with perpetrating gun violence on their fellow North Carolinians. And the **cough** sheriff **cough** is perfectly fine with pulling the trigger.

  9. I never thought I would see the day when an American law officer would talk like this. Sounds like Germany in the early 1930’s. He needs a course in the U.S. Constitution, since he has apparently not read it. What part of “shall not be infringed” does he not understand? And they keep telling us that they have no intention of coming for our guns. Yeah, right.

  10. Whenever this bottom dweller feels brave enough he can visit me. I’d be happy to see how I feel about his braying.

  11. Somebody on a comment forum said that Fisher is a 30 year police veteran and former SWAT. That is an especially disturbing revelation, if true.

    1. “… that Fisher is a 30 year police veteran and former SWAT. That is an especially disturbing revelation, if true.”

      Why would that be disturbing, to me that is expected. There is nothing Lawful about a SWAT breaking and entering a house, it IS *terrorism against the American people. Why is the SWAT action *terrorism?

      US Constitution, Fourth Amendment: “The RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” (caps are mine, and the rest should also be capitalized.)

      Swat teams are a huge force today that works DELIBERATELY against our legitimate government. Show me where all the conditions of the Fourth are met, heck, show me where any of the conditions of the fourth are met when a SWAT is sent out.

      Now consider that every person in that SWAT has broken their Oath every single time they go out, a felony or two/three and Perjury.

      How else can our nation be destroyed except by those willing to follow unlawful orders? At this time American people going about their daily lives have been murdered by “LE” following “Color of Law”, breaking their Oaths and their supreme Contract, (if state) also breaking their Highest contract and another part of the Oath, if combined, or another Oath if not combined. So there would be, if our real LAWS were actually followed and enforced, a charge of Terrorism, two counts (at least) of a felony, two counts of Perjury all for one action not including breaking and entering, assault, etc for every home broken into.

      Once again, unless the Law Enforcement and Military start KNOWING and KEEPING their Oaths to the US Constitution, and (when applicable) to the US Constitution, you (generic “you”) are the problem bringing down our nation because it could NEVER be done if you would NOT “just follow orders” and “just do your job”. Remember, the Oath makes YOU personally responsible for your actions and for knowing the US Constitution (at least the Bill of Rights which lists the rights of the PEOPLE which are forbidden to you as governmental servants) and your own state’s Constitution. Those documents are above any other you are under.

      1. One thing is for sure; SWAT teams have been overused to the point the bad guys use them to do their dirty work. Everyone has heard of being SWATTED when someone calls in a fake claim of a dangerous person when ends being innocent but killed by the team due to their training. Many of us saw that video of the heavy set guy the SWAT team commander had crawl on the floor to humiliate then when he reached back to pull up his shorts they shot and killed him. SWAT teams need to be heavily regulated and used in limited situations.

  12. Mr Fisher, I raised my right hand and swore the oath on Sept 20,1983, and I will honor that oath until the day I die – traitors like you use it as a tool to get to what YOU and a bunch of anti American socialists think our country should be like and would gladfully shred the Constitution and Bill of Rights to get it. First I’ll tell you the same thing I tell others like you……if you don’t like our system here than feel free to LEAVE – there’s lots of countries that will love your ideas and views and international flights leave everyday. Second you are really delusional if you think you would even have a chance in forceably taking someone’s firearms – you might – MIGHT – be able to get away with it in the city but try that crap out in the country. I don’t know a lot about the county you’re running in but more than likely there’s places you would go to that you would’ve a footnote in history before you even knew what hit you or where it came from……….

  13. If they come for my guns, I am sure, in the end, they will get them, BUT, my question to oath breakers like this a$$hole is simply this: How many of you are willing to die at my front door before you get them?

  14. What a shame that he even jokes around (maybe) with this remark. Many people that took the Oath are deadly serious about protecting it.

  15. The sad part is that this fat POS won’t among those he orders to go out and do the collecting and face the ambushes and firefights.

  16. Ya this guy is gonna come and take my tools good luck to you and not only that your idiot for putting your deputies in danger that they don’t need to be unbelievable if this guy gets in there will be serious problems but on the other hand how many of his deputies would actually go door to door I really don’t know what happen to this country oh ya that’s right Obama was in office for 8 years thank God that Hillary didn’t get in or this country would be at war with its self

  17. “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution. ” -Thomas Jefferson

  18. The tyrant’s lackeys are catering to a crowd that operates at an emotional level while omitting logical, rational thought. Hitler and his cronies were experts at influencing the masses using emotions. I see a similar pattern within the USA where the traitorous tyrannical elites are using the media and corporations they own and the many lackeys they hire/support to alter the USA into a fiefdom of which they will lord over as the Kings did in medieval Europe.

  19. I would be less concerned with this candidate running for office of Sheriff with this ideology, and more concerned about elected Sheriffs which possess this ideology currently serving. More concerning is the deputies that have agreed to the same ideology, or have been coerced to comply. Even more alarming would be all town, county, and city first Responders, Firefighters, EMT’S, and Personnel obeying, or coerced into obeying such orders.
    Leadership is important, more that politics, a paycheck, more than making somebody at the top happy, or a promotion. Leadership is going against what you know is wrong at all costs for something greater than yourself, that you know is right…..That is what the Constitution is, and that is what Americans hold dear.

  20. The liberals/communists have all been activated recently and there is an all out assault on our second amendment rights. Remember that the tiger fights the fiercest when it’s dying. So hold fast and hopefully we’ll see this movement die out after the 2018 elections.

  21. Sure is a lot of bravado here in the comment section about not taking MY guns..
    Might I point out that to date “they” have won every time so far. Nationwide.
    They also control the narrative of the gun nut who resisted a lawful arrest and was killed.
    “They” WILL come and you don’t stand a chance alone in your own home Period.
    Thinking otherwise is foolish fantasy..

    1. Here is a twist for your narrative,

      This is a good trendy, go to term for “MEDIA NUTS” and/or entities trying to make it appear as if they are making a lawful arrest while serving a specific agenda to label an unwitting individual, or group of individuals as such, relying on the “MEDIA NUTS” to be the scapegoat vehicle for unlawful activities conducted by such entities, I’ll provide these events, times, and dates, backed by facts if you so desire..
      But there are “Media nut fear mongers”

      Question for blogger,

      Point out the” DATES” and whom “THEY” are referring to,
      In addition to “WHAT” was WON??


      “Might I point out that to date “THEY” have won every time so far. Nationwide??

      What Nation??

      “They” Will come and you don’t stand a chance???

      Who will come??

      You don’t stand a chance??

      Who doesn’t stand a chance??

      I stand on my feet, gun nuts don’t exist, but testicles do,

      So “THEY” Will come, sounds like a B side Horror film featuring Boris Karloff….

      “Assault” is a behavior not a device,

      A rifle is a device,

      please explain what you mean.
      Don’t be vague.

      Its IMPORTANT.

    2. Stuart (and others here), I believe you are forgetting that an intelligent Sheriff/Chief of Police doesn’t have to “SWAT” your home to get your weapons. If any of your firearms are registered – and any you have purchased where a 4473 form was filled out ARE registered – or you possess a concealed weapons permit (which means you own guns, duh), a smart Sheriff or PD will simply perform a traffic stop on you, and take you into custody. When you are in custody, THEN a team will be sent to your home, and they will leave with all of your guns, hopefully leaving your wife and children alive, although it is likely that you dog will be shot and your kittens “stomped” to death. They might even burn your house to the ground, especially if the FBI gets involved.

      Remember, almost eighty men, women, and _children_ were murdered in Waco, even though they could have stopped and arrested Koresh in town if they had chosen to do so. ATF wanted to show their disdain for all of us gun owners, so they attacked instead, believing they would simply roll over a mere church group, “religious nuts”. The FBI (and Clinton) wanted to show American citizens that they would not survive standing up against federal law enforcement, so they burned to death the ones that ATF (and the FBI in the helicopters) didn’t shoot.

      I’d like to think I could send at least one or two of them to Hell if they attacked me at my home, but they could very easily avoid it as stated above. So, consider stashing some guns and ammo. That way, if they don’t keep you in jail or put you in prison, you will have the means to show them the consequences of treating armed citizens in that fashion.
