Democrat sheriff candidate Daryl Fisher ‘jokes’ about killing legal gun owners if they resist confiscation

R. Daryl Fisher, a former Ashville PD captain and current law enforcement training director, is a Democrat candidate for Buncombe County Sheriff in North Carolina.

On March 7, 2018, Fisher spoke at the monthly meeting of pro-gun control Moms Demand Action, in West Ashville Library, Ashville, NC.

Responding to a question from the audience, Fisher said, with intermittent applause from the audience (note: some of his words are inaudible):

“I do have some recommendations. First of all, I would like to see the age for any purchase of firearm between (inaudible) ….. I think we should ban the sale of all high-capacity magazines, handguns and long guns. I think we need to ban the sale of even mechanisms that allow a firearm to fire in rapid succession. The reason why that’s the terminology we need to use in our statutes is there’s somebody out there is gonna develop some mechanism at some time that is going to be able to fire in that position. So we can’t just say ‘bump stock,’ we cannot say a ‘fully automatic trigger’ . We have got to say ‘any mechanism’ that allows firearm to be fired in rapid succession.

I also would like to require that when a person gets their carry concealed permit, I would like to have to carry the weapon at the trigger and not be allowed to carry any other weapon. For law enforcement officers, when we train, training standards mandate that we only carry the weapons as we’re qualified to. I think it should be the same for citizens.

I would also like to see some proficiency testing mandated here. You can see that one, make sure that the folks, if they take action, they’re trained efficiently, and two, they don’t hurt somebody who’s next to them.

Now we should do that, well, I would like to see it annually. However, permits are only issued every five years. None of us made the law…. something that we could do in the future, so that anytime once somebody renews their permit, I think that they should have some type of training instead….

[3:05 mark] I’m gonna tell you now: Don’t buy into the scare tactics, don’t believe the scare tactics. Because you’ve heard people say ‘You’ll have to pry my guns from my cold, dead hands.’ [Fisher shrugs his shoulders nonchalantly, to sarcastic tittering from the audience.] Okay! [He again shrugs his shoulders to indicate that it’s okay with him that gun owners defend their guns till death. The audience of mainly women laugh uproariously and applaud loudly. Fisher smiles, pleased with the audience’s reaction.] When you pass away, we’ll come get it…. Joking just a little bit.”

Hear for yourself:

If YouTube takes down the video, here it is in MP4 format, safe from YouTube censorship:

After Fisher’s incendiary remarks were posted on AltMedia sites like Conservative Tribune, on March 24, Fisher issued a denial on his Facebook page, claiming his remark had been taken out of context and that he was just joking:

Some reactions from Facebook readers to Fisher’s denial:

Bob Durham: “Since you have more than twenty years in law enforcement I believe that you have enough experience and intelligence to know better. In the age of cell phone cinematographers all LEO’s are aware of how they must watch their speech. I have twenty years in the field myself and I would not have made that ‘joke’. If your citizenry chooses to elect you then they certainly deserve better than such ill-thought sound bites. The most dangerous weapon you have as a leader of an agency is your mouth. And just like you can’t call back a bullet after you squeezed the trigger, you can’t take back poorly chosen vernacular. It comes across as pandering to a special interest group.”

Vernon Roach: “You are not advocating for ‘Justice For All’ when you propose on taking people gun rights away. As a retired Army Veteran of 26 years…I think we should slow down when considering taking rights away from good people because of the actions of the criminal elements. I’ve had close friends die protecting the rights you are willing to dispose of…. Also, if we disarm the populace, don’t forget that our country, without guns, would be open to being invaded. Why would you consider stripping me of owning a weapon that I trained with for 26 years? I have done nothing wrong and would protect us in the event of an invasion on our soil… . Also, for your safety, I do not suggest going door to door trying to take weapons away by force. I think you would be met with resistance. I wrote an article on the subject if you would like to read more.

Reaction on YouTube:

snowlothar: “Laughing about killing people simply because they are constitution abiding patriots makes you one sick individual. I believe you and your cronies should be placed on the no fly list and have a psychological investigation performed. You are certainly not fit for public office and frankly should not be part of a free society.”

MKArnold001: “You should be ashamed, but you’re unapologetic. You’re a bad American. I listened to your entire speech; your detractors are not misrepresenting what you’ve said, they have you spot on. You should be ashamed but you don’t even know why we’re calling you out. Btw, judging by their questions, your audience is sadly ignorant of firearms laws. You’ll be remembered for what you said, “…cold dead hands …OK…joking just a little bit there.” You are a bad American and I’m saddened you were ever a LEO.”

Cillian Zeal of Conservative Tribune points out that:

“In most of North Carolina, Fisher would generally seem to be a poor candidate with that kind of attitude. However, Buncombe County includes the ultra-liberal enclave of Asheville, a sort of San Francisco for the Tar Heel State. In fact, Fisher has served as a captain with the Asheville Police Department and is currently the county’s law enforcement training director. (And doesn’t that just make you feel safe?) There’s not a whole lot of polling out there, but those factors could mean he’s got a legitimate shot.

The fact that this guy was able to talk about being willing to kill people over the Second Amendment is a horrible omen. The fact that Moms Demand Action members thought it was funny was worse. This guy cannot become a sheriff. Buncombe County residents need to mobilize, and they need to mobilize now. The alternative is simply too grim to imagine.”

  2. This man should not be elected to any position in government what so ever.
    You do not joke about killing people in a public forum what was he thinking about oh that’s right gun owners are the evil people who do the mass murders on children and innocent by standers.
    What ever happened to “shall not be infringed upon” they think they can just sweep this under the rug.

  6. The Founders understood perfectly what would happen to the people if the government ever managed to find a way to disarm them.

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
    – Noah Webster, “An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution,” October 10, 1787

    “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.”
    – George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, “The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution”, June 14, 1788

    Officer and candidate Fisher knows this well. He also should know that threatening to kill law-abiding citizens for no other reason than the fact that they would refuse to surrender their arms is a felony (threatening grievous bodily harm, threatening to kill, putting in fear, etc.) This is a crime even if he had truly said it in jest, which I do not believe for a second. So the question is, “Why isn’t this POS in jail?”

    • Grif . . . . Bravo! You have stated the precise points that all of us need to focus on when confronted by traitorous individuals such as “this particular POS.” My big question is, would Sherriff Fisher not have to take an oath to defend the Constitution? Or, is this particular position exempt from taking the oath? I agree with you, he should be arrested and prosecuted as a traitor. People can say all they want to . . .” Oh! It was just a joke!” Well, I did not see anything that was funny about the things he said. He made threats to certain people in our society . . . this hardly constitutes a joking matter!

      It is interesting to learn that many of the women in the audience laughed and clapped. This goes to show you, that liberal women have an absence of brain power. They are so willing to trade their freedom, their children’s freedom, and the freedom of all the rest of us . . . for the possibility of BEING SAFE! Their is no safety to be had when you have One World Order tyrants out on the loose, trying to garner all the lands on this planet under their tyrannical ruler ship. As far as I am concerned, any mother who would give away their child’s god given freedom, is a sorry excuse of a mother.

    • Yes. Someone needs to tell Mr. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Baby that we know he was graduated from Redondo High School in 2015 and that he is at least 22 years old. Someone needs to remind Mr. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Baby that we know he WAS NOT in the Parkland High School building when the massacre went down.
      And someone needs to remind Mr. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Baby that we know he has enjoyed good media exposure in at least FOUR STATES in the three to five months BEFORE the mass killing that happened at Parkland HS.
      And I am sure that the name of the hospital that President Kennedy died in, Parkland Hospital, happens to share the name of this high school is just a “coincidence,” I am sure.
      Excuse me, Mr. Disappearing Chin: I would like to remind you that, as far as the Deep State is concerned, you happen to be expendable. Just sayin’.

        • The Great Leap Forward or the Cultural Revolution Mao called for in 1966 killed about 40 or so million people, most likely more.
          Some eight or so years ago, the Chinese admitted, after having discovered some hidden records, that Mao killed more than even they were aware of. Thus, the Mao death toll was upped to between 60 and 84 million.
          But about four years ago, I read somewhere (I cannot remember) that the real Mao death toll MIGHT be as high as 240 million.
          I guess we’ll have to wait until Judgment Day to find out.

          • Steven . various clips on YouTube last evening. I saw several clips of Hogg, in his own words saying, “I heard gunshots, I live three miles from the school … I jumped on my bike and road as far as I could to get there to interview students . . . ” Then all of a sudden, we see the pictures, with him supposedly hiding in a closet, with a flash light illuminating his face, and supposedly interviewing student’s AS THE SHOOTINGS WERE ACTUALLY HAPPENING. There certainly greater fame to be had if you were a survivor of the shooting, rather than a POS who got there after it was all over. This joker needs to be sewed for putting himself forward “as a survivor of the school shooting, and scarfing up monies, celebrity, etc. based on his first hand account of the shooting.” May this little punk rot in Hell through eons of time!

  8. Someone needs to remind Mr. Fishbrain of the 1902 Dick Act that guarantees American citizens of the right to own and bear firearms. And, Oh Yes: Someone needs to remind MR. FISHBRAIN that the Dick Act has a nasty little provision within it: IT CANNOT BE REPEALED.

    So mr. fisher want to impress us with his comprehension of ‘our’ Constitution by referencing the “Ex post Facto” clause ignoring the “Bill of Attainder” portion that guarantees no citizen may be deprived of a civil right as punishment for any crime. That is exactly why our ‘old west’ movies always portrayed prisoners being returned their firearms upon release from prison.

    I wonder just how many carry permits were issued before the turn of the 20th century?

  15. I’m not even worried that anyone would try to confiscate weapons. I don’t know any conservatives that would stand for it constitutionally and liberal voters that own guns are not going to go along with it either. Half the military would walk out. Many of them with their weapons. And there’s no telling how many guns that are out there that the gumment can’t account for. And they know it. Not to mention an inestimable amount of ammunition. and thousands of militias across the nation.
    The media is driving this. And the liberals are lapping it up. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    • Yes. What can happen is for them to pass idiotic restrictive laws and those effectively make it all but impossible to carry a weapon anywhere legally. That provides an excuse for them to arrest you and confiscate your guns.

      I’m not “worried” as in “scared”. I’m pissed that they don’t honor the “shall not be infringed” provision. This should have been settled long ago.
