Tag: 2nd Amendment

That people who value the constitution should be concerned about.
No 'law enforcement' activity can lawfully occur in your county without the sheriff being aware, or present directly, or through deputies. No federal operation can legally enacted without the cooperation of the county sheriff's office. Its a fact. The federal authorities have no arrest jurisdiction in the state of Michigan or any other 'sovereign' state without the assistance of local authorities, and in particular the highest local authority; the ELECTED sheriff.
What is important to remember when voting to fill this position, is whether he will be upholding the constitution, or collaborating with federal or rogue state agencies, which all too often seem to abridge constitutional protections as a matter of convenience.
We have highlighted a couple of TRUE county servants in the past.
Continue below the fold for who they were, and more good news.

The Benzie county sheriff Ted Schendel, received the Constitution Defender Award yesterday at the Benzie County Commission meeting drawing applause from the 50 or so present.
The award is given to 3 or 4 each year, with a 'Grand Defender' being chosen from those, and announced during the annual constitution celebration event in Acme MI. This year's event is Sept 15. The award reads:
"Has been recognized by the Constitution Celebration Committee and membership as a person of indefatigable character, who abides by the laws of our country, and defends with vigor, the principles of its founding by lawful means.Mr Schendel upheld his oath.
This video provides a pretty good explanation WHY this Sheriff was chosen.
We thank him.
And the Benzie Sheriff is not alone.

It's not the norm for me to take work off. However, I'm glad that I took it off this past Wednesday.
To say that I had a good time conversing and rallying with like minded people would be an understatement. It was a blast.
It was also my first time opening carrying.

Dr. Dan speaks out.
WASHINGTON, DC: Dr. Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement after the Obama Administration announced its plan to pursue sweeping new gun control measures:OK.
Impeachment is an option. Put all the damn cards on the table.
NOT just for this effort.

1. to commit a breach or infraction of; violate or transgress: to infringe a copyright; to infringe a rule.
Rules are made to be infringed upon, right?
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder might not have signed on the dotted line for SB59, but it is likely it will come up again, and perhaps with some minor changes. We can recognize the knee-jerk reactionary attitude towards firearms under the circumstances, and though it has affected good policy in our state, and perhaps the reaction does not seem logical, Michigan's situation can still be fixed. Snyder's veto was merely a reflex test result with a little jerk. Not surprisingly, NY state has a wholly different result with the knee breaking backward to smack the face.
New York's Lawmakers drive home yet another reason to .. not. live. there.
Ignoring 83,000 babies killed in NYC alone in 2010, (nearest statistics I could find) arch leftist gun grabbers in NY State wasted no time in enacting a gun grab and (of course) a money grab scheme allegedly based on the deaths of the children in Newtown.
"Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law a sweeping package of gun-control measures on Tuesday, significantly expanding a ban on assault weapons and making New York the first state to change its laws in response to the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school."The speed in which such things are passed must make one think that the shelves are full of devised infringements.

From a few years ago.
Every couple years a horrendous act occurs spawning the next round of gun control measures from willing sheep throughout the nation. Dr Suzanne Gratia Hupp explains through her own experience WHY we should not have restrictions on our ability to carry and self defend.
Her 'lesson' was as tough as any others that have been received recently.
However she actually learned from it.

Mike Cox has Received the endorsement from Shooters Alliance for Firearm Rights.
I know we have talked about the NRA recently, and SAFR became part of the discussion. SAFR is definitely one of the smaller representatives of Gun Owners rights, but seems to represent the true nature of the 2nd Amendment better than some other gun groups.
It was a win for the Cox campaign to see Mike Cox receive the SAFR endorsement, an important point made as the Shooters Alliance for Firearm Rights (SAFR) PAC, is one of the stronger pro-2nd Amendment leaders, with activists and voters across the state. AG Cox issued the following statement:
"As a Marine, prosecutor and Michigan's Attorney General I swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and I will continue to defend our gun rights as governor. I am honored to stand side-by-side with pro-2nd Amendment leaders, activists and voters at the Shooters Alliance for Firearm Rights in the fight to protect the right to keep and bear arms."
Note that its NOT JUST about hunting...
