Better than a dozen Michigan legislators are working on a bill that would remove federal regulations from guns made and sold in Michigan.

Thank you.

The gun-grabbers crossed the Rubicon this time and it’s not just a ‘fringe’ that’s pushing back.

Good. It’s about time the left got pushed back.

GOOD READ HERE!!! FRom the Sheriff of the county next door... Josephine county, Oregon.

By Sheriff Gil Gilbertson
January 18, 2013

NewsWithViews.com

[Note: The following letter was sent to Vice President Joe Biden from Josephine County, Oregon Sheriff Gil Gilbertson regarding the Constitutional rights of the second Amendment to the US Constitution.]

January 15, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.
Washington, DC 20501

Dear Mr. Vice President,

As the elected Sheriff of this County, I am saddled with the duty, as well as responsibility, to uphold the Constitution and protect those people who placed their trust in me to do what is right.

I believe in our Constitution and all it stands for. We, you and I, are sworn to protect and defend our Constitution as required through the “Oath of Office”. This same Constitutional form of government provided us with the most privileged, and envied, country in world history.

Someone once said our country would collapse from within, without a shot being fired. No nation in the world can do more damage to the United States than we can inflict upon ourselves. We are keenly aware of just that by the accelerated pace in which our central (federal) government is usurping the Constitution. This lends itself to a much broader discussion, but for brevity sake I remain focused upon the Second, and Tenth Amendment issues.

It is so typical of the “big brother” mentality to punish the masses, for the heinous crimes committed by a few despicable individuals.

The Constitution, and Bill of Rights, guarantees liberties to the people. These documents, as you know, cannot be whisked to the side by regulation or executive order. According to these documents, the Executive and Judicial branches were to have NO lawmaking powers. The question then becomes how is it “executive” orders can be enforced as if they were laws?

As such, any rule, regulation, or executive order repugnant to the constitutional rights of the citizens of this County will be ignored by this Office, nor will this office, or the citizens, allow enforcement of unconstitutional activities by federal officers.

We refuse to participate, or allow our law-abiding citizens to be criminalized through constitutionally repugnant actions by misguided intentions or politicians.

Sheriff Gilbertson further states:

If our President ever wanted to polarize our nation, this may be the topic that accomplishes just that. Let me embellish on the two levels of government.

The Sheriff’s Office is the supreme law enforcement officer over their county and the federal government cannot supersede that legal authority.

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote: “…The great innovation of this design was that ‘our citizens would have two political capacities, one state and one federal, each protected from incursion by the other’” – “a legal system unprecedented in form and design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own set of mutual rights and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it.” (P.920

Scalia then quoted the man considered to be the Father of the US Constitution, President James Madison, when he wrote in the decision: “[T]he local or municipal authorities form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres, to the general authority than the general authority is subject to them. Within its own sphere.” The Federalist, No. 39 at 245.

Scalia then referred to Gregory, 501 US at 458 when he wrote: “This separation of the two spheres is one of the Constitution’s structural protections of liberty: ‘Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the Federal Government serve to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front’…”

Referring once again to President Madison, Scalia wrote: “In the compound republic of America, the power surrendered by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each subdivided amo0ng distinct and separate departments. Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” (P.922).

I REALLY want everyone to start calling their local sheriff’s office to politely ask which way THEY are going. Will they, TOO, stand up for the Second Amendment?

What if a state was to expand its National Guard by selling commissions to its citizens to be inactive militia, issuing them belt fed weapons, mortars, etc. to store at their residence as appropriate (conveniently covered by cost of commission).

Not as an assertion to meet the “militia” wording, nor a substitute for normal rights, but rather as a means of strongly asserting state rights over federal law.

“I REALLY want everyone to start calling their local sheriff’s office to politely ask which way THEY are going.”

I really want conservatives to get off their duffs and start electing Constitutional sheriffs in their counties who believe in the 2nd amendment. A county sheriff can:

1. Buy surplus military equipment.

2. Harass federal fascists.

3. Investigate liberal scum in local government.

4. Muster a 2,000 man armed auxiliary deputy force for “emergencies.”

Get to work, people. There’s other levels governments - local and state - that can be used. Your life and liberty may depend on a tough constitutional sheriff.
