Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said he doesn’t think the government should tell people what they can and cannot have.

“I’m not going to confiscate weapons from people that are law-abiding citizens. I’m not doing it and I don’t care what kind of orders come down,” Wright said.

That’s why Spartanburg County is blessed to have our sheriff. You may remember this:

Earlier, Sheriff Chuck Wright sat down with Jenna Lee. He said, “I feel that a lady, that is a good upstanding citizen in the community, should arm themselves if they fit the qualifications of our laws and I certainly think they should be trained with it.”

Wright added, “I’m tired to looking at women, in general, or families and telling them ‘I’m very sorry our system has failed you again.
