Saratoga [NY] County Deputy Sheriff's Police Benevolent Association's letter to the New York pols who passed the so-called SAFE Act.
This letter is a must read!!! The politicians have bitten off more than they can chew with this kind of legislation.
The letter is spot on and exposes Obama’s deceptive tactics for what they are. If thousands of Sheriffs would do the same and police departments would join in it would certainly help. It gives you at least some hope that not all government officials are corrupt.
Thanks & bttt
When Push comes to Shove who does one listen to? City Police Chiefs or County Sheriffs? which group has power over the other?
Or do we ascribe to our own beliefs and relie on the Constitution?
As I remember, Concord is not just a name for a grape!
The recent actions of the New York Governor and Legislature show, without reservation, that they consider themselves above their legally endowed authority. They have converted New York into a dictatorship that rules by decree rather than the voting will of the citizens.
To long and wordy just a simple it violates the 2nd amendment and we will not comply would have worked better.
Yes they do, and that is the objective, not safer streets or keeping children safe or what ever other reason they want to pull out their butts.
They are pushing buttons to get a response.
They get their response then they act.
The left has never fooled itself.
They have always known they could get limited power without violence but they could never get and keep absolute power without violence.
The gun grab has nothing to do with guns, it’s all about absolute power for the left.
Its just another law that will be enforced as strongly as the anti drug laws. Only difference is the real criminals are not the gun owners. I can see the police’s concern, just how many officers will they lose when confronted with a neighborhood of irate legal gun owners. The police and the national guard are filled with civilian legal gun owners. This is what you get when you have elected officials put in office by the uninformed voters.
It is entirely as you say! In my terminology it is Politicians selecting their Butt Boys, who walk the line, where as Sheriffs are elected by the people. Most Sheriffs know this and do the will of the people.
See link for example of a Sheriff that people re-elect
Yeh. Tried to read a bit of it and didn’t make it too far past the first page before I felt the beginnings of a headache coming on. Having been the unfortunate recipient of an ocular headache in the past, I was in no hurry to repeat the experience.
Thanks for the link. Saved for later perusal.
I think that should be the followup but IMO the letter was just right. Remember the DoI and how it lays out a 'long train of abuses and usurpations' and counsels that "...a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." That long letter leaves them no excuse that they were not "...Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms:..."
To that point; perhaps groups of like-minded friends and neighbors could set up some kind of early warning systems. Use computer cams and microphones set up to live-stream from your house to the computers on your network of allies. When activated it would contact everyone in the network on their 'puters, mobile devices, etc. like a text message. Just a thought.
