    Default Interim sheriff refuses man’s request for a Class III permit

    http://www.timesleader.com/news/loca...of-county-spat


    A Foster Township man and Luzerne County Interim Sheriff John Robshaw are locked in a battle of wills over a permit request for a fully automatic machine gun.

    Thomas F. Braddock Jr. said he needs a “Class III” permit to buy the machine gun, which he wants as an investment and to enhance his gun collection. If the sheriff refuses to grant this type of permit, Braddock said he will be forced to undergo a more costly process, hiring an attorney to purchase the gun through a special trust.

    Robshaw, a former police officer, said the state gives sheriffs discretion to refuse Class III permit requests, and he has rejected them all since he became interim sheriff in February 2012 because he disagrees with allowing civilians to acquire automatic guns. He receives several requests each month, he said.
    Don't be an ass.

    This guy was appointed. So I am not sure there was an oath.

    Don't want to be nitpicker, but. There are full automatic firearms and there are machine guns. I don't know what a full automatic machine gun would be. Kinda like a semiautomatic machine gun? Sounds like something Barbara Feinstein or Dianne Boxer, uh, I mean Dianne Feinstein or Barbara Boxer would say. Anyway, our sheriff just is afraid and wants to cover his ass because everything today is sue,sue,sue.

    I believe that even an APPOINTED official still takes the same oath ... and after trying to contact him as far as his stance concerning the Federal attempt at gun contol I am STILL waiting for a response... he doesnt return my calls, emails or anything...
