It appears not all law enforcement officers are mindless drones with average IQ's, working blindly for The Corporation.



“Gun control is illegal, and it’s against the Constitution,” he said. “What people don’t realize is that the Second Amendment was designed to protect us from the power of the federal government.”

He said he would expect sheriffs across the country to defend the rights of ordinary Americans.

“I hope and pray America’s sheriffs won’t allow any more gun control,” Mack said. “The sheriffs need to be united in letting the federal government know that we’re not going to allow it.

“In the ’90s when I was the sheriff of Graham County, Ariz., we worked with other sheriffs and stopped two or three Brady Bills,” he recalled, a fight that he’s been detailing in seminars with sheriffs.

He said the office is critical, as it’s not only in law enforcement, but also is elected directly by the people.

“Out of 200 sheriffs with whom I’ve met, I’ve only had one give me a wishy-washy answer. That one said he would try to take the federal government to court,” Mack said. “Most of them have said they would lay down their lives first rather than allow any more federal control. They also said they would do everything they could to stop gun control and gun confiscation.”

Looks like at least some key players are drawing their lines in the sand:


Just a day earlier, WND reported that Firearms Coalition Executive Director Jeff Knox said Second Amendment supporters aren’t planning negotiations with Obama over gun control.

“We are not going to back down. We are not going to give in. And we are not going to concede one more inch,” Knox said.


And they should, dammit. I will argue all day long that "regulation" = "infringement". The Corporation just will not come to terms with how and why the famous document was written, to give the people some kind of ultimate recourse if tyranny ensued.

And tyranny did indeed ensue. Question is, what to do now.

I would not be a bit surprised if this thread disappears very soon. It seems that any thread that would give hope to the people or is remotely patriotic gets trashed or 404'd here these days.

C> another anti/pro gun thread

I guess because these Sheriffs in Arizona want to protect those guns rights of their citizens.




The guy above ran for Sheriff in Arizona. But he decided to kill his family instead including a little baby.

I was expecting the Dead Kennedys version of I fought the law



I'm the new folk hero of the Ku Klux Klan
My cop friends think that's fine
You can get away with murder if you've got a badge
I fought the law and I won
I fought the law and I won
I fought the law and I won

Is this story about neo-nazi freaks who lose it and shoot up people?

NO.

I don't see WHAT point you are trying to make with that post- at ALL. :shk:

He was running for sheriff in Arizona before he killed his family.
And you have other sheriffs from Arizona saying they want to protect guns.
And you have a problem with Arizona sheriffs and Neo Nazis.

National Socialist Movement member Thomas Coletto, a.k.a. "Vito Lombardi," with Sheriff Joe Arpaio


crooksandliars.com...




This May 2 dalliance with Coletto and J.T. Ready wasn't the first time Arpaio has associated with the neo-Nazis. In March 2008, the sheriff spoke before a United for a Sovereign America meeting at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Sunnyslope, where U.S.A. affiliate Elton Hall was in attendance. Hall, 75, is a legend in Arizona neo-Nazi circles, venerated by racist skinheads for his work as an organizer for George Lincoln Rockwell's American Nazi Party in the 1960s. - See more at: crooksandliars.com...

So let me see, they called to ban assault weapons, tighten up on gun control, assault weapons sales went through the roof, some of us are "stacking up" for the stage and dhs purchase millions of dollars worth of ammunition.

Are you concern? Ya, we should be if they ban your semi-auto so-called assault weapons (military style) not your handguns but we can define that to right?

Being realistic here blame the people who are using these weapons to kill innocent people not the government who are trying to curve the problem.

Brother, I am sorry, but I think you need to return to "Reasoning and Logic 101." You failed.

Why that there is good 'ol Mr J.T. Ready. Busted out of the Marine Corps on a bad conduct discharge ... Founder of a real wacko version of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps that created far more problems than they ever solved, member of a National Neo-Nazi group where he made public appearances in Riverside and San Berdo. California for posterity and first came to most people's notice by showing up at the Phoenix Occupy camp in full 'Battle Rattle' to take on the world ..or some such thing.

Anyone can run for anything. It doesn't mean they ever had a whispers chance of winning and he sure didn't.

@OP

Great thread. This gives hope. Sheriff Joe in Arizona and a couple Sheriff's in Nevada have recently used the awesome degree of power a Sheriff actually has ... but few ever actually seem to use their office to it's full potential. That's probably for the best, given just how much power an elected Sheriff actually wields. In this case though? It's a true sign of hope because they CAN do what they say and virtually no one else can in that way.

Happy New Year! Time to fight for our rights!!! "Equal opportunity for preservation of life and liberty."

Maybe Arizona sheriffs are a bad choice of sheriffs all across this country to quote!
They have a bad image in the public mind that they built!

Maybe in YOUR public mind, but in my mind Sheriff Joe is a national hero for at least attempting some credible investigation into Obama's BC. To me he elevated Arizona's reputation immensely, in a general sense. But I am not so shallow as to stereotype the lot of them, which is what you are attempting to do, and in a bad light.

No chance of winning? It just takes the right connections!No pun intended.

J.T. Ready with ex Senate President Russell Pearce.





J.T. Ready, Arizona's most prominent neo-Nazi and the one-time political protege of recalled state Senate President Russell Pearce, reportedly is dead by his own hand in what's described as a multiple murder-suicide in Gilbert that left four others slain, including a 2-year- old.

A one-time member of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, Ready, 39, was a committed white supremacist, a former Republican precinct committeeman, and a failed candidate for the Mesa City Council.

Charismatic and articulate, he was once a rising star in Arizona's burgeoning, anti-Mexican nativist movement where his inflammatory rhetoric and radical political ideas were largely embraced.

I suppose the local police departments will confiscate 500 guns from some of the trouble makers around and tell the regular people to hush up about having them. The local police departments aren't our enemy although there may be a few conflicts here in Michigan. The government just passed a law about stopping collective bargaining EXCEPT for police and firefighters. Maybe the governor wants all the cops to be on his side, with their allegance to him and of course, he wants the fire department to save his home if someone torches it. Oh well, we have a control freak in charge, maybe he will start outsourcing the police protection also. A bunch of Chinese cops around
