Wow: N.C. Sheriff Candidate Jokes About Killing Gun Owners?

“You’ve heard people say: ‘You’ll have to pry my gun from my cold, dead hands.’ Okay!”

A candidate for sheriff in Buncombe County, North Carolina recently joked about killing people who wish to retain their constitutional right to bear arms. R. Daryl Fisher, who is running as a Democrat, quipped at a campaign event: “You’ve heard people say: ‘You’ll have to pry my gun from my cold, dead hands.’ Okay!”

His statement, which implied that it was “okay” to kill gun owners in order to confiscate their guns, met with laughter and applause from those in attendance.
