Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart was among the overwhelming majority of sheriffs in the Florida Sheriffs Association who voted to uphold the rights in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Adopted on Dec. 15, 1791, the amendment protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
Stewart, a lifelong supporter of gun owners’ rights, said he was proud of the Florida Sheriffs Association for taking a stand to protect the rights of gun owners.
A resolution was voted on at the recent Sheriff’s Association convention held Jan. 27-Feb.1.
