IT’S NICE TO SEE A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL STAND UP FOR CIVIL RIGHTS: Oconee sheriff boycotts weapons dealer after gun control policy.

OCONEE COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) – Oconee County Sheriff Scott Berry said neither he nor his law enforcement agency will purchase weapons anytime soon from a major firearms dealer, after that dealer made a change to its policy on who can buy certain types of weapons.

Dana Safety Supply, which has a store in Sugar Hill, recently amended its policy to exclude any non-law enforcement customers from purchasing semi-automatic weapons. . . . Berry said that kind of exclusion of civilians from purchasing weapons they’re lawfully allowed to own is the reason he is boycotting the company.

Good for him.
