Carroll County Nullifies Maryland Gun Control Legislation With 2nd Amend Preservation Act

In a victory for Maryland concealed carry, open carry, and gun Rights, Carroll County has passed resolution 884-2013, a Second Amendment Preservation Act.

“The Board reasonably believes the MFSA to be “pretended” (unconstitutional) legislation and be it further resolved that the Board, in affirmation of the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Carroll County, herein direct that Carroll County Government will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers or offices for the purpose of enforcing any element of the MFSA that infringes on the right of the people to keep and bear arms” [Source Legislation]

Two other counties have also joined Carroll County, Maryland, in nullifying new Maryland gun control legislation, which:

Bans 45 types of Rifles
Bans magazines carrying more than 10 bullets, criminalizes the utilization of said magazines already owned
Deputizes doctors against patients, encourages reporting of gun owners to government, prohibits ownership of guns by “mentally ill” deemed so by the State
Requires fingerprinting for new handgun purchases
Requires licensing and training for new handgun purchases

from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?” -Thomas Jefferson

A resolution is not a law.

Please remember what we learned in politics school about back stabbing:
Resolutions are not laws and have no teeth.
They just make you feel good and get you off the politicians’ ass.
Works pretty good don't you think?

Yep. It does not matter.

Any resolution, ordinance, law or fee repugnant to the Constitution is null and void.

The only time resolutions and laws are even considered valid is when uneducated people allow them to be, thus they get steamrolled by kangaroo courts.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Clarification

Are you saying that the local politicians are conspiring with the feds to dampen resistence by a token statement? I wouldn't assume any such thing, myself.

I think the local politicians realize which side their bread is buttered on, know that the public is not happy with this infringement, and these locals want to be re-elected.

Traditionally, this is how it's done: first the juries stop convicting, then the police stop ticketing and the prosecutors stop prosecuting, then the state gets involved, and finally the feds cave. Congress as a whole may or may not get it, but those who don't get tossed out.

This is a real indication that the locals have gotten the message and that there is real resistance, a parade they can get in front of. It does not matter that the resolution has no real teeth--those who don't heed the growl will be eaten.

Don't be bitter. Be encouraged. If you don't recognize that politicians are individuals and not a singular monster, you might accidentally vote another Ron Paul out of office or worse, give up.
