Resistance to gun control is spreading
Across the country, local officials and individuals are drawing a line in the sand and saying that they will not accept further encroachments on the people’s right to own and carry the means to defend themselves. You may or may not agree with each and every approach being employed or suggested, but either way, this is a newsworthy trend.
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes Gun Control measures with an executive order.
Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our . . .
My friends, there is hope. Law enforcement officers at the local level are making their stand and they want you to be a part of that. While I’ve written on various sheriffs that have made their own stance to protect their citizens from anyone attempting to confiscate guns, I recently ran across Police Chief Mark Kessler of the Gilberton Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania. He wants citizens to join with his police department in building a “reserve force” that will aid his police force should the need arise to resist Federal authorities when it comes to the Second Amendment.
I spoke with Chief Kessler and he is most definitely a patriot and a Constitutionalist. The police force is quite small in his town and, much like my own town, criminal activity is not rampant.
The reserve force will be made up of volunteers, they can be past or current police officers with act 120 training . . .
To date, six counties in New York; Ulster, Lewis, Warren, Washington, Madison and Oswego, have passed resolutions calling for the repeal of the law. In addition, resolutions have been introduced and are pending in Jefferson, Erie and Ontario counties. Many of my neighbors and friends feel that it is time for Suffolk County to join these other counties and let the Governor know that law-abiding citizens in this county resent many of the proclamations in this new law. We feel that many of the initiatives in this law now make previously legal gun owners felons. One way this law hurts a “legal” gun owner is by restricting the magazine size to only seven rounds. At this time NO gun manufactures make a seven round magazine.
The California Sheriffs have joined the ranks of the other 282 Sheriffs and Sheriff Associations who have followed the lead of Sheriff Tim Mueller of Linn County, Oregon – who wrote a letter to VP Biden that they don’t support or want to enforce a gun ban. The California Sheriffs have a few points which I haven’t seen from any of the other Sheriffs I have reported on, they take issue with the fact that the prison system has been turned into the primary place for mental health care for criminals, and they think that the solution to reducing violence is not to ban assault weapons but to have better treatment of the mentally ill instead of having a revolving door policy of putting criminals that haven’t had proper rehabilitation back out into the public – and to take more measures to stop the mentally ill from purchasing firearms.
After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new registration mandate while daring authorities to “come and take it.”
Analysts say the legislation, passed in a frenzy last week in the wake of the Newtown shooting, represents the most brazen infringement on the right to keep and bear arms anywhere in the nation. Among other points, the so-called SAFE Act seeks to limit magazines to just seven bullets, require virtually all of the estimated one million semi-automatic rifles in the state to be registered . . . .
LEANDER, TX –-(Ammoland.com)- Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.
Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies.
In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.
Press Release: Olympic Arms, Inc. Announces New York State Sales Policy
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Olympic Arms is a staunch believer in and defender of the Constitution of the United States, and with special attention paid to the Bill of Rights that succinctly enumerates the security of our Divinely given Rights. One of those Rights is that to Keep and Bear Arms.
Legislation recently passed in the State of New York outlaws the AR15 and many other firearms, and will make it illegal for the good and free citizens of New York to own a large selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel as though the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of the United States, ignoring such SCOTUS rulings as District of Columbia v. Heller – 554, U.S. 570 of 2008, McDonald v. Chicago – 561 U.S. 3025 of 2010, and specifically the case of United States v. Miller – 307 U.S. 174 of 1939.
Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that the State of New York, any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of such an entity – will no longer be served as customers.
In short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York – henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.
If the leaders of the State of New York are willing to limit the right of the free and law abiding citizens of New York to arm themselves as they see fit under the Rights enumerate to all citizens of the United State through the Second Amendment, we feel as though the legislators and government entities within the State of New York should have to abide by the same restrictions.
This action has caused a division of the people into classes: Those the government deems valuable enough to protect with modern firearms, and those whose lives have been deemed as having less value, and whom the government has decided do not deserve the right to protect themselves with the same firearms. Olympic Arms will not support such behavior or policy against any citizen of this great nation.
Olympic Arms invites all firearms manufacturers, distributors and firearms dealers to join us in this action to refuse to do business with the State of New York. We must stand together, or we shall surely fall divided.
