So it's racist and hateful to disallow strangers on your property?
What if they were white people?
Would it be okay then?
It's called reverse racism.

Citizens have the absolute right to uphold those laws that are part of our country. No where in our Constitution is there language that even mentions police forces or government entities to uphold laws. That was never part of the federation when it was signed. Police forces where not part of our standing army. They where created by politicians to protect business at their inception. Citizens should never be fooled into thinking that only appointed law enforcement have that right.

So does that mean if I catch you crossing my lawn I can hold you prisoner at gunpoint? Who's the bigger threat to my country? The guy who ignored the 'keep off the grass' sign, or the guy pointing a shotgun at him?
I would love to have someone show me any law or any language in our Constitution that says a citizen does not have the same rights to uphold the law of the land with any less authority than those that are supposed to uphold the law by appointment. Citizens have the absolute right to uphold those laws that are part of our country. Citizens should never be fooled into thinking that only appointed law enforcement have that right. Zindo
I think you proved my point. The Federal Government doesn't have the right or does it give them the right to supercede the rights of citizens to uphold the laws of this country, nor does it designate ONLY Federal authorities to do same. If anything those quotes signify the limits of Federal authority.
