    I hope they find and deal appropriately with the person making these threats.

    "Investigators said someone called Crime Check to report a Facebook post threatening to kill Spokane County Sheriff Knezovich and other Sheriffs who have stated they won't enforce Initiative 1639.

    That's the initiative passed by Washington voters in November that bans people under the age of 21 from purchasing at semi-automatic rifle and creates safe storage requirements for firearms.

    According to the person who called Crime Check, the threats were posted on a shared news story about the Grant County Sheriff announcing that he won't enforce I-1639.

    According to the caller, the post stated Sheriff Knezovich is going to get a bullet in his skull. The caller said another threat posted by the person stated he would shoot sheriffs that don’t back I-1639."

    Sheriff was very clear, distinct and placed responsibility where it needed to go. Also impressed that it appears he's wearing a cocked and locked 1911.

    i hope this doesn't turn into a situation of regret.
    this person has a history of threats and he is apparently armed and free.

    It won’t end well for the bed-wetting basement-dwelling mommas boy leftist who made the threats.

    Typical leftists mentality. These are supposedly tolerant people according to their platform.

    “Shall not infringe” seems clear to me. Anti-gun groups lack any intellectual capacity to evaluate and assess a problem, formulate logical conclusions resulting in evidence-based solutions.

    People make hollow threat like that all the time on "social media", in both directions. Probably nothing will come of it - although I would assume the Sheriff's office will look into it.

    This type of thing happens all the time. For example, look at how many states have legalized marijuana yet it is illegal federally. Have their been any death threats for anyone failing to enforce those laws? Its just weed, right?

    I get an email from time to time about gun issues in my state from a state focused group. Most of time it involves one of the 2 large cities. A common issue that comes up is failure to return a firearm when it is a justified shooting. Not, it has happened and they corrected the issue. No, every time it happens it takes lawyers and emails and court appearances just to recover your rightfully owned property. And who pays for that? We all do. So, using the law to further your agenda is nothing new. Glad to see someone using it like I would.

    This same kind of thing happened a few years ago when our county's sheriff took a pro 2A stance. The SO's Facebook page was peppered with hateful comments, many from out of state. It's a sad commentary on our current culture.

    Not just the elected sheriff the individual has threatened?

    How unsurprising.

    This whole terrible law can laid at the feet of the progressives/ socialist in Seattle.

    It by the way if more then ban on 21 year olds and locked guns. To buy a semi auto rifle you have to allow access to LEO to you medical privacy. And you have to take a safety class

    Our Sherriff here received death threats as well. Just two or three days ago he finally made a public statement that he would not enforce an unconstitutional law.

    Ironic that these same people are all for sanctuary cities which choose to ignore Federal immigration laws and refuse to allow LE to cooperate with ICE. They see "justification" there but when it happens the other way around in order to follow the Constitution, they issue death threats. I doubt that they even see the level of hypocrisy. On the other hand, they might and just don't care.

    Hypocrites. Ban guns or else or we will resort to violence and kill the sheriffs who refuse to enforce the new gun laws.

    So how will these fanatics kill? Knives, garrotes, poison, etc.? Certainly no guns.

    If it is a constitutional issue, let the courts resolve the matter after all sides have had a chance to plead their case.

    Guess I learned about the separation of powers between the 3 branches of government differently from others. The Legislature makes the laws; the Executive Branch enforces the laws; and the Judicial Branch determines if the laws are constitutional. If the new law is unconstitutional/constitutional, let the courts decide.

    Sheriff Kenezovitch is a stand-up guy. I have met him and spoken with him on a number of occasions and have supported his bid for re-election. I live in Spokane county and the sheriffs do a great job under his leadership.

    This might be easy for me to say but just once I would like to hear some high profile conservative who gets death threats from the left respond this way:

    I am unconcerned with the empty death threats I've received because I know the radical left are nothing but talk and filled with spineless cowards without the balls to actually go through with any such threats.
