I hope this trend keeps on growing. Without local cooperation, FEDs are powerless to enforce anything. With local sheriffs outright resisting, it
might get interesting indeed.
I always find this topic interesting...
The chances that every member of the Federal Law Enforcement establishment, the active duty military, the state gaurd units, state and local law
enforcement are going to support an action against the citizens of this country is naive at best.
This topic has come up at my state level, with missouri putting legislation together that prohibits federal officers from confiscating / restricting
This topic has also come up at my department, with the directive being, in no uncertain terms, that there will be no confiscation, there will be no
support of federal actions that intrude on the 2nd amendment, and that we serve the people and that trust will not be broken.
The government needs to be reminded that they serve the citizens, and derive their authority from those citizens, and only govern with their consent,
and that consent can be revoked at any point.
I am more and more in favor of requiring a Constitution 101 class as a requirement to hold an elected office, or any office that represents the
people. Every time Chuck Schumer - D-Senator of NY opens his mouth I have an uirge to buy canned goods. When he lectured the media one day and said
the 3 branches of government were the President, House and the Senate, I immediately wondered what the hell New Yorkers were thinking to have voted
for this person.
This should not only be a wake up call for the government, but for the people as well. We have term limits at every single level of our government
They are called elections...
You have a choice.... Either be heard or be silenced.
