Still no mention of this on Drudge

I wonder why. Is this not a big story???

thank you Sheriff John Minor

... of heavily Democratic Summit County. Liberty åctivists back your principled stand and work to educate the sleepy misinformed progressive commies of the numerous errors in their policies ...

nice, sitting in summit now,

This is nice to see

but when are they going to stop enforcing all of the other unconstitutional crap they do on a daily basis? (drug war, evictions for foreclosures, etc..) Color me skeptical. I see this as more of a publicity stunt for upcoming elections, and/or as a way to make sure they are not targets when this revolution gets hot. (which I hope it never does)

If 10% of the American people simply resisted by not paying their taxes we wouldn't need state sponsored pirates in costumes like this to "protect" us.

you have no clue

you have no clue what you are talking about. I can tell you do not live in colorado at all. Many sheriffs have not been enforcing the marijuana laws for like 18 years already,unless you flaunt that you are growing lots of marijuana and then pushing it on the streets.

If you lived here you wouldn't be saying half the stuff you do in your post about colorado.

In general there might be a few rogue cops just like there are a few dumbass marijuana smokers but overall. I applaud law enforcement in colorado on the marijuana issue and gun issue.

These sheriffs have steel balls for coming out in favor of guns or marijuana. many of these sheriffs in the mtns live in heavy dem areas and are republicans. They have steel balls for coming out and supporting this. This is not about parties. These sheriffs have support from dems,reps,indys.

Ron Paul 2016

That was just one example and

That was just one example and I bet there are more cops that have arrested than not arrested people for pot use, growing or smoking. I could've said not wearing a seat belt, or how many times did people get pulled over for no license plate light, or a burned out taillight that escalated into more charges. You can hero worship these cops all you want. I'm not naive about where we are in this country. Just because they took a stand on this one issue does not make them men of steel! Is it good they took this stand? Yes. But why can't they honor their oath ALL of the time, not just when it is politically popular? This is more PR stunt than it is a show of them honoring their oath.

Well.. I agree, but..

Why not find mutual ground where we can, and work on the rest as we can? Rome wasn't built in a day type of thing.

You could write them a letter reminding them that their oath applies elsewhere.

I'd use the compliment sandwich..

Compliment: We're incredibly proud of you for standing up for the 2nd amendment.

However, ( insert tasty complaint here )

Compliment: Thanks again for your support, you rock! I look forward to working with you on a number of other constitutional issues.

Mmm, delicious compliment sandwich.

Seriously tho, maybe we should write a letter.

Good luck with that...

I am extremely PROUD of the example set by these Sheriffs!

I would be happy to have any one of them as my county sheriff.

I'm not sure how my Sheriff would handle a similar situation, but I plan on sending this youtube to him along with my expectations of someone in his office.

Anything less is not worthy of the highest elected office in the county.

i hear ya, our sheriffs in

i hear ya, our sheriffs in summit and lake county are with this, sadly so called joseph hoy who is suppose to support the 2nd amemdment rally in eagle county? did not sign on this and has nothing but bs excuses on why he has not signed on. He will be remembered as the traitor 8. 2 other appointed sheriffs didn't sign on as well but the 8 are elected and will be challenged.

Ron Paul 2016

I'll bet you a dozen cop donuts

MOST of these sheriff's will eventually cave on this and it will be police state business as usual.

You have no idea how big the black market is for confiscated weapons in police circles. I know many people who have lost their weapons due to various legal technicalities and when they went to get their guns back, they were gone gone gone.

These Sheriffs

are to be commended; they have my utmost respect. May other states follow suit! May this story go viral!! I shared it on Twitter--have "you" passed it on?? :)

Powerful line from one of the sherrifs

At the 20:23 minute mark the sheriff says "We each took an oath. The line in the sand has been drawn and we will stand united".

http://youtu.be/49F1uWp7kMo?t=20m23s

Yeah, they all took an oath

to get their paychecks. But I bet you every single one of these pirates have arrested and caged people for smoking a weed. Where was their oath then???

you do not live in colorado

you do not live in colorado and are basically talking out your ass. If you do live in colorado. Then your head is in the sand for even saying bs like you just did.

You do realize that marijuana for the last 18 years was only a 100 fine for having an ounce,less then a speeding ticket. Police didn't give a crap about marijuana unless you were selling it on the streets like a dumbass or blowing smoke in a police officers face out of spite or flaunting your grow(like a dumbass). Police in general did not enforce the marijuana laws unless you were a punk behind a 7-11 or just plain stupid.

Any folks that did get busted pretty much were flaunting the law or ignoring it flat out. Most sheriffs were very reasonable considering.

Ron Paul 2016

You've missed the point.

And I don't have to live in Colorado to know that most Sheriff's violate people's rights on a daily basis. You seem stuck on the MJ issue, maybe because you don't like it or think it's a drug or something. Why should it "only" be a 100 fine? What difference does it make WHERE someone sells it?

How come you think it is OK for a sheriff to evict people for some bankster that can't run their business without some pirate in a costume with a gun as their enforcer?

Wake up, America is in a police state! And we got here because of people like you that hero worship LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!

would you have preferred jail

would you have preferred jail instead of a 100 dollar fine at that point?

Wow, if you are a part of the freedom movement we're freaking doomed. I can't believe how much people who claim to be Ron Paul Republicans bend over for the cops.

Will the national news pick up on this?

Can they ignore? Can they marginalize? I checked the front page of a few news websites. The story is mentioned on FoxNews.com (pretty prominently) and msnbc.com (not so prominently but at least there was a mention). There is currently no mention on the frontpage of cnn.com and, surprisingly, Drudge.

It's on the Dailycaller.com

But that's the only place I've seen it. I don't even remember where I found this at. (It wasn't dailycaller)
We can submit it to Drudge.

I've noticed that Drudge has been slow lately. I've been relying on DP for up-to-date news, 'Cause you guys ROCK!

Some sheriffs want to salvage what we know as America

And many police chiefs want to make it easier to invade your rights. It is amazing what has happened in this country and much of society will only realize it, once it is too late

Agenda 21, PNAC, CODEX ALIMENTARIUS and UN biodiversity study. Help me understand why I shouldn't think there is a big agenda against the wishes of the masses.

I agree this current, genuine news deserves to be front page for at least a few days.

Email, Twitter, or whatever else you happen to use.

Let YOUR People know about these TRUE sheriffs.

OATHKEEPERS

Excellent development, next state please! Who will follow next?

Kudos to all the Constitutional Sheriffs for having the courage and will to honor their oaths! So much so that they are suing their state to protect the U.S. Constitution!

Great points and interpretation of the Anti-gun bill.

¶~~*~~Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth. ~Ludwig Börne~~*~~¶

unforcable laws, unless you

unforcable laws, unless you bypass the constitution in its entirety, if one goes, then they all go....what would law keepers have to do, to follow the law, break other ones?
Are we being foolish, because we hold greater value for those laws that will be violated, in the process of abiding to NEW laws that, either, we dont agree with, or have no say in

"because they are uninforcable they poison the relationship between law abiding citizens and law enforcement, and in that way seriously harm law enforcement"

Is it safe to say that, this is an opinion of some law keepers, if that is the case, this one person hears you, and agrees, and i wouldnt put it past others citizens to be of like mind, thankyou for being good guys and gals, and for not being those who would ignore rather then care
