MOSES LAKE — The Grant County Republican Party has invited controversial speaker Sheriff Richard Mack to speak July 13 at Big Bend Community College’s Wallenstien Theater from 7-9 p.m.
Mack is most famous for his role in a successful lawsuit brought to the United States Supreme Court claiming that the Clinton-era Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act violated the constitution.
Mack is also well known for his role with the Oath Keepers, a far-right group whose membership includes current and former law enforcement officers, which is known for patrolling rooftops during the Ferguson, Missouri standoff, proposing insurrection if President Obama declared martial law, and strategizing the Bundy standoff in Oregon.
Mack is also the founder of the Neighborhood Alliance PAC, a political action committee that supports the arming of teachers in public schools.
According to a press release from the Grant County Republican Party, Mack will be speaking on the following subjects:
• The Dangers of Gun Control; Liberty v. Statutes, what are we really after?
• Is There A Peaceful and Effective Solution when government becomes oppressive?;
• To whom can the people turn for peace?: ‘Hero Sheriffs’ in Washington and around the Nation; a 1993 United Nations sustainability declaration; and The Oath of Office, Our Duty, and the Supreme Law of the Land.
“This is our way to say ‘thank you’ to all those in law enforcement for their dedication and tireless service to their communities,” the press release stated. “All law enforcement attendees will be recognized for their service.”
Tickets are available at the door for $12 or may be purchased online at SheriffMackGrantCounty.brownpapertickets.com.
