Author to discuss power of the county sheriff
September 16, 2013
Former Graham County, Ariz., Sheriff Richard Mack will speak on the power of county sheriffs during an Oct. 18 discussion at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building.
In 1994, Mack, during his second term of office, sued the federal government for requiring him to enforce the Brady bill. The law required sheriffs to do the bidding of the federal government within their own jurisdictions and threatened sheriffs with arrest if they failed to comply, Mack argued. Six small-town sheriffs around the country joined Mack in similar lawsuits as the case progressed. On June 27, 1997, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with Mack.
The event is sponsored by the Nevada County Republican Women Federated.
Tickets for the event, set for 6:30-8:30p.m. Oct. 18, are available for $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Free general admission for law enforcement, college and high school students with ID. Tickets available at Briar Patch, Gold-N-Green, or 530-263-2672 or $50 in advance for VIP Reception with Sheriff Mack at 5 p.m., appetizers and special seating.
