This powerful speech in defense of the Second Amendment is a stark reminder as to why the right to bear arms is fundamental to the constitution.

A sheriff's deputy in Davidson County, North Carolina, delivered the speech earlier this year before the county's Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to declare the county a Second Amendment sanctuary.

20 people spoke before commissioners and a "standing-room-only crowd of more than 150" in January.

Every person who made a statement was in favor of the proposed resolution to make Davidson County a Second Amendment sanctuary.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported at the time that "perhaps the biggest cheers of the night came for Davidson County Sheriff's Deputy Tripp Kester, who spoke while wearing his sheriff's office uniform."

"I just want to personally and publicly go on record supporting this resolution before us, this evening," Deputy Kester began.

"It's simple," before making his case.

"The Constitution needs no explanation. It's been enforced for several hundred years now."

WATCH:

"It's easy to understand. It says what it means, and means what it says," he said.

"And the last time I read the Declaration of Independence, it specifically reminds all of us that we're endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, which means God-given."

"Among these, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," Kester continued.

"And that governments are instituted among men specifically to secure our God-given rights."

"And it says when government becomes destructive to these ends — meaning that they go above and beyond trying to secure our liberties and trying to take them — it's the right of the people to alter or abolish that government, either by voting or ultimately, God forbid, to use our Second Amendment rights to protect ourselves from tyranny."

Deputy Kester then called for the Board of Commissioners to join the counties of Cherokee, Lincoln, Rowan, Stokes, Surry, and Wilkes in becoming Second Amendment sanctuaries.

"Publicly demonstrate to us that you're willing to uphold and honor the same oath I took when I put my hand on God's Word and held my other hand up to Him and swore that I'd give my life to defend that Constitution," Kester told the commission.

He added he was "not trying to be disrespectful, but regardless of what you all do or don't do, I'm not going to enforce an unconstitutional law."

The deputy received a standing ovation as the room erupted with applause.
