Here’s another great article about the power of your local ELECTED Sheriff against Gun Control or any other unconstitutional law passed in DC.
Now, as Washington gears up to consider imperious plans to limit guns, require fingerprinting and registration, impose additional taxes and fees, ban particular features or functions outright, and even confiscate weapons of self-defense, Mack has told WND that there’s hope remaining in local law enforcement.
It’s not complicated, he said.
“Gun control is illegal and it’s against the Constitution,” he said. “What people don’t realize is that the Second Amendment was designed to protect us from the power of the federal government.”
He said he would expect sheriffs across the country to defend the rights of ordinary Americans.” (From an Article by Michael Carl at WND)
Think about it for a moment. When the conflicts between local citizens and the federal agents begin, who is the person to get between them? Your local sheriff, that’s who.
When I was sworn-in, many years ago, as a deputy sheriff, I swore to uphold and protect the US Constitution. As Mr. Carl points out in his very enlightening article, gun control is illegal. It is a violation of the US Constitution. The 2nd Amendment says plainly your right to keep and bear (“bear” means “to carry”) arms shall not be infringed. Infringed means “to go against,” to change, to limit, and on, and on. In plain language it means the government cannot, legally, do a darned thing to infringe your rights under the Second Amendment.
Seems to me, a local sheriff would be well within his rights, in upholding the law (the constitution) to arrest any, and all, federal agents who persist in an attempt to enforce any federally imposed gun control laws in his jurisdiction.
Here is a little known fact: ” … no matter what gun control laws are passed by the federal government, they can only be enforced in your area if your county sheriff allows them to be.”
” … the county sheriff is the highest governmental authority in his county and he does not have to bow to the tyranny of the federal government if he deems such actions to be unconstitutional or unlawful. In essence, the county sheriff has more legal authority within his county than the governor or the state or even the president of the United States.”—Read more:
I agree with the writer of the article at godfatherpolitics.com. But I see two problems. One: The American government is no longer bound to the constitution. Having decided the constitution is no longer valid, since we MODERN Americans have outgrown its lack of moral relativism, our current government just does whatever the heck it pleases and rams it down the throats of the citizens.
Two: The American citizen is so totally ignorant of his/her rights under the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, that they no longer protest when their government goes rogue. Of course, there is always the ten percent who either don’t get the word or don’t give a da*n.
Given the above information, don’t you think it might be prudent to contact your local sheriff and inquire where he/she stands on gun control and the enforcement of unconstitutional laws in his/her jurisdiction?
