FIRST HOUR: RICHARD MACK
Sheriff Richard Mack (Ret)
Sheriff Mack is best known for challenging the Brady Bill, a gun control scheme requiring local law enforcement to perform background checks on prospective gun purchasers. He maintained that the Federal Government had no authority to command local officials, and became the first sheriff in American history to sue the Federal Government (under the Clinton administration) and win at the US Supreme Court. The case was based on the Tenth Amendment, states rights and local sovereignty.
Mack is the son of an FBI agent and began his own law enforcement career as a street cop in Provo, Utah. After graduating from BYU in 1978, Mack became an officer with Provo P. D. He was soon promoted to corporal, sergeant, and detective. He spent one year as an undercover narcotics agent. In 1988, Mack moved home to Arizona where he ran for sheriff. He was elected Graham County Sheriff and served as such for eight years. It was during this time – in 1994 – that federal agents informed all sheriffs that they would be required to work for the Federal Government under the mandate of the Brady Bill, and Mack's court case began. Since that landmark ruling Mack has written seven books and appeared at over 120 Tea Party rallies nationwide. He has stood against the incursions of the Federal Government and has fought for civil rights from Hawaii to Bangor, Maine.
He is the Founder and President of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) and is on the Oath Keepers Board of Directors.

Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Virginia, Richard Leigh was born into a home filled with domestic violence that ultimately claimed the life of both parents. Richard became an orphan at the tender age of four.
Going from family to family, he sought comfort in the form of music and songwriting. By the time he was ten, he was performing at church and school functions. By the time he was a teen, he was performing in music venues. Despite his humble beginnings, Richard went on to write songs for the greatest country music artists in history, including Ray Charles, George Jones, Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Dixie Chicks, and more. Award trophies include a Grammy, CMA Award, and Richard is one of only ten songwriters in history to ever receive the Song of the Century award. Arguably his most famous song, Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue, reached #1 on both the Pop and Country charts, earning Richard his first Grammy. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994. To date, Richard’s music has sold 50 million records and has made fourteen trips into the top ten, including eight #1 hits.
Join hosts Lynda Cheldelin Fell & Angie Cartwright as they talk with Richard Leigh about his humble beginnings and journey into stardom, and learn the story behind his keynote speech Three Minute Miracles: From Orphan to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday, March 18 beginning at 6 pm pacific / 9 pm eastern.
