Because I think only 2 Sherrifs in TN have signed on.

Hamilton County (Chattanooga) is one.

Tennessee Sheriff's by and large are not going to support 2nd Amendment Rights, it would interfere with their taking of Federal Grants. The State Legislature set the Sheriffs up two years ago to be kings, they can never be unseated till they are ready to retire, as for the first time since the Founding of the State, the Sheriff's co-opted the legislature to require a candidate to be a resident of the County, AND a Post Certified Law Enforcement Officer. You run as a Deputy against the High Sheriff, and you get midnights at the jail, not going to find anyone who fits the criteria to take on an established Sheriff.

Thank your local Representative.

Sheriff Buck from McNairy County is an exception, his Dept. takes NO Federal money, and he has already authored a letter stating he will uphold the 2nd Amendment.

The Tennessee Constitution requires each county to elect a sheriff to a four-year term. In all Tennessee counties except one, the sheriff is an official with full police powers, usually county-wide, although Tennessee sheriffs and their deputies generally perform the patrol portion of their duties primarily in unincorporated areas of their counties if the municipalities have their own police departments. The exception to the rule is Davidson County. In Davidson County, the sheriff has the primary responsibility of serving civil process and jail functions without the common law powers to keep the peace. Protection of the peace is instead the responsibility of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department under the county's Metropolitan Charter. The Metropolitan Charter did not remove the Davidson County Sheriff's status as a Law Enforcement officer however. It is simply not his or her primary function as it was prior to the consolidation of the City of Nashville and Davidson County.

The current Sheriff of Davidson County, Daron Hall, is still elected as is every other sheriff in the state. He has recently added a new law enforcement division to his department. The division is called I.C.E. which deals with immigration issues.[citation needed]

As of August 21, 2012, Sheriff Daron Hall announced that the Davidson County Sheriff's Office will not renew its contract with the 287(g) program after five years of its utilization. The contract will end October 8, 2012 and in its place will be an Obama administration project known as Secure Communities—it will be the default anti-illegal immigration mechanism for the Davidson County Sheriff's Office in the fall of 2012.
