Gun Control Activist Threatens to Shoot Sheriffs
The social media salvo came as Ledford's retribution for many of them waging a public declaration against the merits of a gun control bill called Initiative 1639. (The new law which passed in November, seeks to put more protections on gun ownership when it goes into effect in July.)
“I-1639 is law,” read one of the screeds composed by Ledford, whose Facebook profile photo features a headshot snap of a burly Karl Marx wearing a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers.
“sheriffs that are non compliant will be shot. by me.”
Another post reads: “I really want to kill a police officer.”
Okanogan County Sheriff's deputies promptly arrested Ledford. Local authorities have since turned him over to federal custody.
