Sheriff Candidate Jones Responds to Gun Law Decision
Press release received from the Committee to Elect Davy Jones
A federal appeals court dealt a potentially serious blow to Maryland’s un-constitutional 2013 gun control law and similar measures across the country, ruling Tuesday that a lower court was wrong when it upheld the state’s ban on assault rifles.
In a 2-1 decision applauded by gun rights advocates, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit concluded that the semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines banned by Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act “are in common use by law-abiding citizens.” As a result, they don’t fall under the exception to the right to bear arms that applies to “unusual” weapons such as machine guns and hand grenades, the court said.
“After this decision was released Davy Jones, candidate for Berkeley County sheriff, felt compelled to weigh in and assure Berkeley County residents that as their sheriff he will protect their constitutional rights to life and self-defense.
“As your sheriff it’s not my duty to enforce monarchy style laws but to defend the citizen’s constitutional rights! This decision in MD and with our own Constitutional Carry bill moving forward I am confident we are moving down a path to reverse the infringement of our second amendment rights” said Mr. Jones.

“I am confident that most West Virginians understands what the second amendment was written to protect. Here in West Virginia I am hopeful that we would never allow such an injustice on our rights to defend our life. I wanted to assure all citizens of Berkeley county, that as their sheriff, I would stand with them on the side of liberty”, argued Mr. Jones.
“Our rights do not come from government but our creator. Government has no authority to “infringe” these in-alienable rights! The right to defend your self is in severable from the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. “Finished Mr. Jones
