Sheriffs Coalition Calls for Resistance to Vermont Move Against Gun Rights

Adam Lanza would have qualified for statist sainthood if liberals had succeeded in exploiting Sandy Hook to the extent they hoped. But it is beginning to look like they overreached. Authoritarians can’t even count on law enforcement to take their side against the Second Amendment:

The head of a nationwide sheriffs coalition is calling on Vermont’s law enforcement officers to defy three controversial gun control measures passed by Burlington voters three weeks ago.

“Sheriffs have a constitutional duty to refuse to comply with such ordinances,” said Richard Mack, president of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. “We’re seeing sheriffs in New York oppose the Safe Act and Gov. Cuomo. If we have sheriffs in New York doing this, how much more should we have sheriffs doing it in Vermont?”

Despite the colonization by hippies that turned Vermont deep blue, the state has a libertarian streak that can be seen in its resistance to gun-grabbers. However,

On March 4, Burlington voters joined a push by elected officials throughout northeastern states to enact stiffer gun control measures. By a 2-to-1 margin, they banned the carry of firearms in bars and restaurants, authorized police to confiscate guns during domestic disputes and required gun owners to keep firearms locked up at home.

The attack has been incremental. At this point, the camel has far more than its nose in the tent. Virtually any law to further infringe on our right to bear arms needs to be resisted tooth and nail.

The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, which touts sheriffs as the highest law enforcement officials charged with defending the rights of citizens in states, claims that 17 police associations and nearly 500 sheriffs nationwide have pledged to defy unconstitutional gun control measures.

If Vermont sheriffs resist, they won’t be alone.

Sheriffs in Colorado are refusing to enforce that state’s new background checks and ban on high-capacity magazines. In Connecticut, tens of thousands of residents are refusing to comply with a new state law that requires registration of guns and high-capacity magazines. In Saratoga Springs, N.Y., citizens publicly protested the state’s new SAFE Act last week by burning a thousand gun registration forms.

If leftists are smart, they will back off for a while, and pray to the dark gods of authoritarianism for another school shooting. If they aren’t, things could get interesting. Quite a few of us are still Americans, despite the Hope & Change and Fundamental Transformation.

Right to Bear Arms

On a tip from Wiggins.

    This may be hard for some to believe but here’s a snapshot of Vermont gun laws from the NRA-ILA website. Hard to believe that the state that gave us the communist Bernie Sanders is so pro 2nd Amendment – until now.

    West Lost 500 Years of Basic Law In Ten Years

    “Everywhere you look in the world now, the government is giving themselves permission to skip all those pesky rights won with rivers of blood for five centuries fighting tyrants like Napoleon, Cromwell and Adolph Hitler.

    Because they know when to stop. After all, they’re the government. The best check on the government is for them to self-check, which basically consists of themselves checking and deciding they are infallible and should be able to do whatever they want. Now you know why Cromwell, Mao and Stalin got rid of the right to bear arms first, not last.

    Why? The reason is that 9/10ths of mankind are beasts recently down out of the trees who really never understand anything unless it is a hollowpoint exiting a barrel pointed at them. Everything else is a little too complex for them to follow. Trusting in the sorts of people drawn to government to police themselves is identical to having a round robin session with foxes to convince them to self-police their need for eggs after giving them the key to the henhouse.

    As soon as these laws fade, the first person to benefit is the local crooked cop who thinks there is now carte blanche to act like a night warden in a Mexican jail who feels he should be able to strip search incoming women at midnight. Every psychopath in the system acts like it is Christmas and decides this is the perfect time for a wild binge in which they can do anything they want. After all, the government said it is okay. That proves it is alright to stop worrying about impulse control.

    A little bitch stopped my wife the other night and ordered her into a dead end street because he decided to breathalyze her. He admitted she had not been driving dangerously or done anything to warrant or suggest a test. He had just picked her at random. He added before she could really say anything, “If you don’t I will arrest you and I’m not kidding.” He struck a pose that he had been practicing in front of a mirror that he probably thought was impressive. You see, this guy thinks he is part of the “anti-terrorism” special squad worldwide. He almost thinks he can call Obama on the phone to discuss policy if he needs to. He’s a serious individual and all those people who laughed at him or discovered he has an IQ of 91 will be sorry they ever failed to respect him. He’s part of the mission and it goes right to the top. Those civilians will just need to bend over and submit or there will be hell to pay. Police forces all over the planet draw clowns like these the same way a buglight draws moths.”

    Here is why they want your guns.

    The hard tyranny has arrived.

    I cannot fathom why there isn’t a posse or militia being formed to get that girl. There sure would be if it were MY daughter, and I’m quite frankly ready to go if asked.

    The state is now fully able to take away your child simply if they feel like it. Because ONE f-ing doctor didn’t agree with another doctor’s diagnosis.

    If that girl isn’t back with her family TODAY, we all better lock and load.

    This may very well be, to use the progressives favorite phrase, the tipping point.

    Yes, I know I posted this earlier, but sadly, sheriffs who uphold the Second Amendment aren’t necessarily the case in Connecticut 🙁
