After listening to President Barack Obama’s speech after the Umpqua Community College shooting, the publisher of the local paper said the President isn’t welcome in their town.
According to the Daily Caller, David Jaques, publisher of the Roseburg Beacon, didn’t mince words at all about the President’s potential visit to the humble town:
“I think that’s very inappropriate, and I think it’s disrespectful to the families”
“We haven’t even identified bodies, we’ve still got incident command trying to contain the scene, and he’s holding a press conference 3,000 miles away from here, telling — almost implying that he could have single-handedly prevented this if the Congress would have listened to him.
“I think he admitted it himself. His visit here isn’t a re-election campaign stop, but it is a campaign stop for an agenda that he and his associates believe is important,” Jaques continued. “And that is to take away Americans right to own firearms.
“It shows not only a total disdain, a disregard for Constitution, but our very citizens, especially those of us right here in Douglas County. We believe in the Second Amendment. We believe in the whole Constitution.”
The publisher then went out of his way to compliment Douglas County Sheriff John Hamlin, his handling of the shooting, and his commitment to the Second Amendment:
“We’re very proud of our sheriff. He’s basically put the administration on notice, that if you pass any laws or edicts or executive orders that are either unconstitutional or extra-constitutional, they will not be enforced in Douglas County and we’re proud of that. That is the kind of sheriff we elected overwhelmingly.”
