Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Graham County, received the highest vote in the nation in the recent election for US Senate running as a Libertarian. He is charismatic, focused, and he has a message. He has been speaking out for a long time and his principles are clear. Let the people govern themselves in their own communities, comes through whenever he speaks.
Mack proved to the entire nation that he was one sheriff who "stuck to his guns" when he was the first sheriff in the country to sue the Clinton administration to stop the Brady Bill. Mack's case went all the way to the US Supreme Court where he won a landmark decision on the issue of states' rights. That ruling, which reinforces the fact that the Federal Government can not force their programs on the States, has been virtually hidden from the public by the media. Mack believes the people must know to do it for themselves.
Richard Mack has been in law enforcement for over 20 years. He worked his way up the ladder from parking cadet for the Provo Police Department while in college, to Detective. In 1988, Mack moved to Arizona and was elected Sheriff of Graham County, twice.
Other honors include:
Graduate of the FBI National Academy
Elected Official of the Year (1994) by New Mexico/Arizona Coalition of Counties
Received the Firearms Industry's "Cicero" award (1995)
Law Enforcement Officer of the Year (1995) by the NRA
Defender of the 2nd Amendment Award by Gun Owners of America
Sheriff Mack has been a consultant on numerous cases regarding police abuse, brutality or other government and police misconduct for attorneys and citizens alike. He lectures on various Constitutional issues, especially gun control and the 2nd Amendment, States' rights, federal intervention, the proper role of law enforcement, and the peace officer's oath of office. He is also an expert at explaining why a Sheriff is the leading law enforcement authority in his county. Mack believes that the Constitution must be enforced.
Publications authored by Mack include, "The Proper Role of Law Enforcement" and "Protect and Serve: Time for Sheriffs to Walk Tall."
Richard Mack will discuss the issue of justice and law and why it must be people on the local level who control their own lives on our show this Friday.
