Hopefully the LINK at the bottom of the article will work ................

Friends and Patriots,

The number of sheriffs standing against the Obama and Feinstein gun control efforts
has grown to 226 and 4 of them are from Pennsylvania!!!!! Click the link at the bottom of this email to see a State by State listing.





I applaud all the Sheriffs for standing with the people of their counties and with our 2nd Amendment. Thank you.




I would like to add this to the conversation. There are many in our country who have been diagnosed with a myriad of issues from PTSD, ADHD, Tourette’s, Sexual Disorders, etc., etc. and who have taken medications for their issues but who have never committed a crime. Many of these brave men and women were veterans who fought for and defended our country and Constitution. There are probably law enforcement officers who have experienced some sort of trauma and either had counseling or have taken some sort of medication at one time but who have never committed a crime. No one has the right to erode our 2nd Amendment for any reason. A crime has not happened until someone actually commits it and American citizens are not to be treated like criminals just because tyrants want to infringe on our God given rights.




There are no "ifs, ands, or buts", no mental health data bases, no background checks, not forced release of very personal and private information, and no descriptions of what type of firearms Americans can own or possess in the 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment was purposely stated in crystal clear language so that our rights that are afforded protection under it would not be infringed. ANY infringement or compromise of the Constitution is a violation of the law. There will be no compromise of "...Shall Not Be Infringed."

Any "law", "EO", or "rule" etc. that is not aligned with the Constitution, is invalid and void, as if it never occurred - reference: NORTON v. SHELBY COUNTY, 118 U.S. 425. A "law" that is passed, which is not directly inline with the Constitution includung the 2nd Amendment is invalid and those law enforcement who uphold any such laws are in direct violation of the Constitution and will in fact have broken the law themselves. I urge all Sheriff offices not to stray from the Constitution as doing so will be a violation of your oaths to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and of the people who elected you in your county. To those others who serve in law enforcement, you too have sworn this same oath, even though you were not elected to serve; even though you were hired on by some official, you are still bound by your oath to serve the people in a manner which remains consistent with the Constitutions of the United States and your respective States.




U.S. Supreme Court NORTON v. SHELBY COUNTY, 118 U.S. 425 (1886) 118 U.S. 425 NORTON v. SHELBY CO., STATE OF TENNESSEE. Filed May 10, 1886

"...An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed."




Again, I want to thank you for standing with our beautiful country, our Constitution and with the citizens of your respective counties.

There are some mental patients whose grip on reality is such that they should never be permitted to have firearms. Paranoid individuals who wrongfully believe that every body is out to harm them, should not be permitted to have them. PERIOD.

If you ever had to deal with a mental patient that had multiple firearms and routinely fired shots across your property, fields and pastures, day and night, you wouldn't make such ill conceived blanket statements. He bragged that he could kill anyone that angered him, and the worst that would happen, is that he would be sent back to the hospital. We already have a law that persons who have been committed involuntarily may not have firearms. There is a procedure for them to get their firearms rights back. That law should stay in place.

Do you know how many people try to buy guns in PA and are denied because of convictions and 302's, etc.

I turned in a local poacher. His hunting rights in pa were lost long ago. Because of other past convictions, he is prohibited from having firearms in PA, yet he illegally had 27 guns, 17 stolen. For 27 counts of illegal possession of firearms he got three years probation. Enforce the laws we have.

I agree some should be denied firearms and really agree they should enforce existing gun laws. What ever happened to the law about use a gun get 5 years?

The problem with this is not the concept or the principle. It's how the govt would or could abuse it. If we let govt mental health examiners decide who is mentally competent to own a firearm or not, they can easily paint you out to be crazy enough that they deem you unfit. There are alot of gulf war and Irag/Afghanistan vets who have had to seek some therapy for post traumatic stress. I'd hate to see a high percentage of these heroes denied a basic right of citizenship because they had to have some therapy as a result of their service. I'm sure they could ask why we want or need a gun, and I suppose if you claimed you feared your own government, they might consider that the wrong answer.One thing is certain. These issues need approached carefully and not in the do it right now, today time frame that Feinstein and Obama are pushing for. They are allowing hysteria and drama to dictate what needs to be very carefully considered before lasting decisions are made. Truth of the matter, the govt is using this as a scapegoat for their agenda which is ultimately disarmament. It has always been the goal of the socialists to do this. Fast and Furious was also intended to make a case against assault weapons being sold legally in the US. They don't really give a rat about mental health or even the shootings that have taken place. It's all a convenient excuse to further their socialist agenda.

5 years is a joke. If a persone commits a crime with any firearm, IMHO they should receive 30 years minimum!

The group that educates people about autistic children COMES OUT and says these KIDS are HARMLESS...BUT THEY ALSO SAY DO NOT have them around any firearms..ABSOLUTELY NOT....So which is it??? They are harmless or they are KILLERS???? I mean how stupid is that group???? I say lock em all up in nut hospitals..

The old adage is some of the highly intelligent people in our society also alot of time have a great lack of common sense..Apparently by all accounts Adam Lanza was highly intelligent but could not understand good from evil which is a deadly combination..If he did not have the ability to understand right from wrong he should not have been aloud out in our society..Theyre called EVILDOERS..
