Sheriff Berry's Second Amendment Views Reach National Stage

The Oconee County, Ga. sheriff spoke with Melissa Francis of Fox Business on Jan. 4, 2013.

Oconee County Sheriff Scott Berry Friday was interviewed on Fox Business about his decision to no longer conduct business with Dana Safety Supply in light of the company's policy change to sell selected firearms only to law enforcement and not to the general public.

Host Melissa Francis questioned Berry about his opinion of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence's scorecard for the state of Georgia regarding gun regulation.  In 2011, Georgia was given a score of 8 out of a possible 100 by the campaign.

Berry responded by saying he "was kinda hoping we'd shoot for a lower number than that."

"Georgia's a state where we truly believe the Second Amendment exists for a reason, and the Second Amendment exists for lawful citizens to be able to carry and buy firearms.  It's that simple, and Brady's not gonna like it.  Brady's never gonna like the state of Georgia."
