Utah Govenor "Herbert the Weasel" says otherwise

Herbert says Utah will follow federal gun laws

The weasle denounced the Utah Sheriffs association Letter to Obama.

Not good

Why battle lines when mutual respect is called for?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Got a letter

from our county sheriff last week. It stated he did not have to answer to the Fed and would defend the Constitution by protecting our right to bear arms and refusing to confiscate any weapons should such laws be inacted.

Pretty words, these

Pretty words, these nullification threats. But do they have any real muscle behind them? I wouldn't bet my life on it.

We'll know that we're getting serious about the right to keep and bear arms when some state or states step up and declare all of the adult inhabitants under their jurisdiction to be members of that state's militia. That would place those citizens beyond the reach of federal gun laws. That the federal government may not interfere with the states militia activities is explicitly guaranteed by the Second Amendment and has never been questioned.

Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Utah, Arizona, Tennessee and Alaska are likely candidates for grassroots activism.

Hearts in the right place

That last paragraph made me tear up..though it's a bit ignorant that the Constitution doesn't grant rights.

No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights--in particular Amendment II-- has given them. We, like you, swore a solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and we are prepared to trade our lives for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.

I sent this to my Sheriff

his reply.

"I, however, do not feel those Sheriffs who have at this jucture staked out a firm position opposing something that has not yet happened is wise or prudent. NO new federal gun control laws have yet been passed and even after they are there will likely be court challenges so we are a long way from the end of the story. I am very serious and believe in supporting the rule of law as well as the Constitution. I will not however shoot from the hip so to speak just to satisfy those who are in a premature sky is falling panic. When or if new gun control initiatives materialize i will then reassess the situation and respond/react accordingly."

A understandable position but still wishy washy about my direct question about defending my rights.

who is your sheriff?

if you do not mind posting here so we know.

Ron Paul is My President

This is what you call...

This is what you call nullification with teeth! Hopefully other state sheriffs will follow suit.

SLC county sheriff denounced the letter

He's not an association member.

Please vote that coward out.

Thanks for finding this visible.

"We are confident in the process that Congress and the courts will continue to protect our rights as established."

Now that is one UNbelievable statement.

I posted a comment on his FB page.
