    Adding to the Voice of 2nd Amendment Defenders.

    As most of you know, there have been some recent Resolutions, adopted by the Local governments, expressing support for our 2nd Amendment right. Although such Resolutions do not carry any force, and are not binding on future commissions/councils, these Resolutions DO add to the resounding Voice of the Citizens, towards Washington DC. Recently, in SW Kansas, Grant County and the City of Ulysses, Kansas, passed the following joint resolution (actual wording may be slightly different, as each entity passed the Resolution separately, and each entity intending this to be a Joint Resolution):

    County of Grant, Kansas Resolution No. - ____________________
    City of Ulysses, Kansas Resolution No. - _____________________

    A JOINT RESOLUTION TO PRESERVE AND DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

    WHERAS, the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America states that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” and

    WHERAS, the Supreme Court of the United States of America, in two recent cases, District of Columbia v Heller and McDonald v Chicago, has held that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right, and

    WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Grant County, Kansas and the City Council and the Mayor of the City of Ulysses, Kansas desire to adopt a formal Resolution to Preserve and Defend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT JOINTLY RESOLVED, by the Grant County Board of Commissioners, and the City Council and the Mayor of the City of Ulysses, Kansas, setting in on a duly called session on this, that: The Grant County Board of Commissioners and the City of Ulysses, Kansas, will not enforce any unlawful and unconstitutional statutes, executive orders, or other regulations and proclamations which conflict with, and are expressly preempted by, the United States Supreme Court’s rulings on the right of an individual to keep and bear arms; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Grant County Board of Commissioners and the City Council and the Mayor of the City of Ulysses, Kansas call upon the United States Congress, the Governor of the State of Kansas and all elected officials of the State of Kansas to preserve and defend the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States as an individual, pre-existing, and unalienable right of the citizens of the State of Kansas and to nullify any statutes, executive orders or other regulations and proclamations that infringe upon the right of an individual to keep and bear arms.

    This joint resolution was approved and adopted this _____ day of _____________, 2013.

    BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
    MAYOR and CITY COUNCIL

    ULYSSES, KANSAS


    Not bad.

    To add more Voice, the following is clipped from cjonline.com website:

    “Kansas' governor worked the pen hard Tuesday by signing documents transforming into law 31 bills adopted by the 2013 Legislature that tap into law enforcement, elections, Internet security and local government contracting.

    Gov. Sam Brownback affirmed Senate Bill 102 to set the stage for prosecution of U.S. law enforcement officials for enforcing any federal regulation or law governing personal firearms, accessories or ammunition manufactured and owned in Kansas.

    In a compromise to legislators concerned about showdowns with a federal officer, the measure precluded any arrest or detention of anyone prior to trial for violating the state act. Prosecution would occur, but the officer wouldn't be handcuffed and booked into jail…………..”

    Some news reporting entities label this new Kansas Law (SB 012) as the “strongest Pro-gun bill in [the] Country.”


    Thanks, Kansas!!!

    Yes, this IS Awesome!

    So, folks, please pass this along to everyone you know:

    To all who value your pre-existing, God-given and unalienable rights, bring your families, your businesses (are you listening Glock, Colt, Remington, Sig Sauer, etc.?), and your GUNS to SW Kansas. You are WELCOME here!!!

    I don't post much on this site (mostly read), but I feel very good about Kansas, and SW Kansas, today.
