To keep and bear arms...
The last bastion of freedom for us Americans is - wait for it -
Yes, children, it's true. No matter what the weenies in Foggy Bottom decide, or the almost-as-weenie weenies in America's state capitols come up with, it's the county sheriffs in our great Country who are charged with following the constraints of the Constitution of the United States of America.
Doubt it? Think about Arizona's infamous Sheriff Joe Arpaio. This guy has been a thorn in the side of redistributionist, illegal immigrant-loving, lefty legislators since Jimmy Carter was screwing up America. This is the guy that keeps arresting illegals, feeding them baloney sandwiches, putting them in pink undies and housing them in a tent city. He just tells everyone who disagrees with him to get bent, and goes about doing the job his constituents hired him to do. Right on, Joe!
Remember, the Constitution tells the Government what it cannot do, i.e., "negative rights," versus what it can. That sooooo irritates the Progressives among us. And let's look again at that pesky 2nd Amendment...
"...the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Need the definition of those little highlighted words?
Keep: To maintain, store, safeguard, secrete, save, reserve, stock, employ, shield, shelter, own, look after, care for, house, store, etc.
Bear: To hold, support, carry, wield, display, control, show, flash, produce, shoulder, wear, holster, have, convey, bring, take, etc.
That means, Messrs. Obama, Biden, Schumer, Emmanuel, Durbin, etc., and Ms.'s Feinstein, Boxer, McCarthy, et. al., we Americans can buy guns, and openly wear them, with no more authorization than a dog-eared copy of the Constitution of the United States of America in our shirt pocket (trust me, I'm really, REALLY close to giving that a try here in the second least-free state in the Union).
Okay then, students of English, which I would assume most of our states' legislators are, should understand quite well that any movement they make, besides bowel, of course, to infringe upon those God-given rights, would be negatively received. And they are, by everyone except the CPDLW (commie pinko dumbass liberal weenies). But does that stop them?
They are Hell-bent to keep the Sandy Hook massacre crisis from going to waste. They want to pass any, any negative measure they can, while they can, against guns and their owners, especially their red-neck, wife-beating, tattooed, inbred owners, before the low-information voter's attention returns to DWTS (Dancing With The Stars).
And hundreds, hundreds, of county sheriffs across the fruited plain are lining up as friends and protectors of the Constitution and its Second Amendment, stating publicly that they will not enforce any law, new or otherwise, that in any way infringes on the Second Amendment. And, as a kicker, they openly threaten to jail any Federal agent who attempts to enforce anti-2nd Amendment laws within their borders. And kiddies, those statements are not sitting well with the CPDLW in statehouses across the Country.
Let's take Colorado for instance. CO legislators are warning their county sheriffs that they risk losing their annual raises if they don't fall into lockstep behind the new, unconstitutional laws. And if that doesn't work, they say they'll move to fire those that are appointed. And so far, the sheriffs are telling the legislators to pound sand.
Good for them. Keep it up. The citizens of America who love freedom are solidly behind you. And the citizens of the states with CPDLW governors and/or legislators who love the Constitution and freedom are preparing to toss these bastards out of office at the very first opportunity.
As Thomas Jefferson so famously said, "The tree of freedom needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots."
I think that time may well have come...
