I've been to Jackson County and I'll tell you that the sheriff is being prudent... you don't want to try and disarm them there folks.
There You Go.................Sworn To Uphold AND Defend The US Constitution.
I think the uproar and resistance will be far greater than anyone in the administration realizes. They can only hope for Ghandi-style civil disobedience--but I don't see that happening.
Is the idea of Gandi-style civil disobedience in order to keep weapons (intended to prevent gov't oppression) a wee bit amusing on some level?
Thats how all states should respond.. Look at all the tough gun law states and funny how their numbers are much higher then the rest of the US in murders and gun crimes....
Exactly what should happen.
Protect and defend. Protect and defend.
IMO.............it's gonna be a great next 4.
I think it's already in the state Constitution as our right.
SECTION 8. Right to bear arms.—(a) The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and of the lawful authority of the state shall not be infringed, except that the manner of bearing arms may be regulated by law.
Note it doesn't say as allowed by the federal gov't and it only infringes as to the "manner" of carry.
Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest... - Mahatma Ghandi.
Your County Sheriff is your most valuable local elected official. They are the elected "by the people" official with the authority to boot the Feds out of their respective counties.
The Sheriff is entrusted with that power and is oath/sworn to uphold the Constitution but, if they will have a set of ga~nutchies big, bad, and bold enough to do it - that will be something that citizens may want to find out in advance.
I wrote my state rep and senator to look into sponsoring something like the WY proposed law. I haven't heard back from them yet.
