Gun-Watch-LogoArizona – -(Ammoland.com)- It has become common for liberal fascists to proclaim that “only the Supreme Court” can interpret the Constitution.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Every legislator, every elected politician, every police officer and person in the military takes an oath to uphold the Constitution and defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They do not take an oath to follow orders given by the Supreme Court.

It is a myth that only the Supreme Court can interpret the Constitution. It was not always so, and legislators and juries commonly interpreted the Constitution in the United States before the “progressive” era. One of the strongest checks on government power is the power of the jury. A jury has the power to decide that a law is unconstitutional or that a particular application of a law is unjust.

In Florida, an elected Sheriff released a prisoner when the Sheriff believed the prisoners constitutional rights had been violated. A disgruntled deputy lined up another job, then accused the Sheriff of corruption. From wkzo.com:

BRISTOL, Florida (Reuters) – A Florida sheriff was acquitted on Thursday of charges that he committed misconduct and falsified public records when he freed a jailed man who carried a loaded gun without a permit.

Suspended Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch, 51, had testified that he released Floyd Parrish from jail because he had a constitutional duty to uphold the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Conservative organizations and activists opposed to gun control rallied to the sheriff’s defense after Governor Rick Scott suspended him last summer. Scott reinstated him shortly after the jury delivered its verdict.

So we have a very interesting case where a Sheriff acts on his principles, and is upheld in them by a jury of his peers.

Perhaps we will see the start of a trend.

There is a web site called Liberty Zone were they say the U.S. Constitution is defended. According to the web site a liberty zone is a concept to engage, local county citizens in defense of their freedoms and rights, their true constitutional liberties and rights from encroachment by lawless, unconstitutional powers of federal, state, or local governments and courts.

They go on to say that “everyone knows there is something terribly wrong with our governments, and that the problem is getting worse by the day. Many true patriots, and even many who haven’t even thought of themselves as “patriots,” are sick at heart at the unconstitutional lawlessness, greed and corruption taking place in our Republic, but are frustrated at what to do about it. Many join 33049_1thmvarious groups created to help educate people, and to begin to resist the growth of tyranny, which is a great thing to do, but this doesn’t address the real place change must take place… at out local, County level, and with the People. What can be done to unite citizens in towns, cities and counties across our great Republic”.

The site points out that the various Federal, State and Local governments have strayed far outside their authority and are unconstitutional in many actions. Unless The People stand up for the laws of the land and for the Constitution of the U.S.A., as it was intended and as “The People” expect it to be, our way of life is threatened and will cease to exist. There are millions of people across the country that belong to various groups that hold to these beliefs as well, but are so diluted at the local level that nothing can be done to effect grass root, local efforts.

They claim the solution is creating your local county, city or town as a “Liberty Zone” and is the start to bringing like-minded people together. Liberty Zones locally will be that focal point for individuals, irrespective of group affiliation, and allow our County citizens to support the varied missions of the many allies we all have in our varied groups. The ONLY way the People will secure their liberties is to stand together to defend the Constitution, both federal and state. More

Minnesota DFL’ers begin 2nd Amendment assault

“I have no doubt that chapstick is being widely used today by those we elected in the Minnesota legislature, in preparation for Monday’s lovefest with Obama .  Maybe someone will think to pass out knee pads, also.”

_________________________________________________________________________

In anticipation of the appearance of King Obama on Monday, February 4th, four DFL’ers here in Minnesota submitted their [coincidentally identical to Obama’s]  proposed legislation that infringes on the 2nd Amendment.  Not only have these people decided that they are not constrained by the Constitution for the United States, Supreme Court rulings or any other lawful obstacle to infringing on the 2nd, they also seemGun-Control-Works-Pictures-e1342051099803 to have forgotten the oath they swore upon taking office declaring that they would defend that Constitution.

Republicans had this same selective amnesia during the Bush/Cheney Crime Administration and worked tirelessly to strike down not only our rights, but the Constitution in total.

Sec. 8. Oath of office.

Each member and officer of the legislature before entering upon his duties shall take an oath or affirmation to support the Constitution of the United States, the constitution of this state, and to discharge faithfully the duties of his office to the best of his judgment and ability.

Apparently, judgment and ability is in short supply in the Minnesota House and Senate.  What a surprise!

SF 235: Modifying the lawful possession of firearms

This bill is on the hotlist of bills in Minnesota and is an ex post facto law.

Ron Latz, the DFL senator from District 46, appears to have no knowledge whatsoever about the 2nd Amendment or previous SCOTUS rulings or even the state constitution and also appears to be suffering from selective amnesia with regards to that oath of office he and several other DFL’er’s took.

Gun control state by state

On Monday, Obama is to appear in what is billed as a public meeting (that really isn’t unless you support his desires) in the Minnesota legislature.  Once there, his mere presence will cause the bending of many legislative knees, and from this position, that great sucking sound you will hear will be the result of numerous legislative lips, both Democrat and Republican, puckering in supplication and submission as he promotes his state-by-state efforts to pass the beginnings of gun banning and confiscation.  More
