President Obama derided the Second Amendment as obsolete in his second inaugural address, claiming that “when times change, so must we” on issues like citizen gun ownership.
“Can’t kids be kids anymore?” asked Maryland attorney Robin Ficker. In today’s hysterical anti-gun atmosphere, the answer, at least for public-school students, is apparently no.
Across America, state lawmakers, governors, attorneys general, sheriffs, and other officials are promising to protect the gun rights of citizens in their jurisdictions in the face of the most aggressive assault on the Second Amendment in generations. Indeed, as the Obama administration’s unconstitutional agenda becomes increasingly transparent — backed by some Democrats and much of the establishment media — resistance to further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms is exploding nationwide.
As the Obama administration and some Democrat lawmakers plot more infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, residents in at least one Kentucky county are relieved knowing that they will be protected from unconstitutional gun control and federal lawlessness by their chief law enforcement officer, Sheriff Denny Peyman. In an interview with The New American, the liberty-minded Jackson County sheriff said he would refuse to enforce any more assaults on the Second Amendment, and that federal agents would not be allowed to do so either — at least not in his jurisdiction. Teachers will be allowed to bear arms as well, he said.
Earlier this week, Missouri State Representative Casey Guernsey introduced a bill that would prevent the federal government from seizing weapons owned by citizens of his state.
Sen. Rand Paul is readying legislation to "nullify" President Obama's executive orders to implement national gun control "laws" in violation of the Constitution.
The president's plan to usurp Second Amendment rights is already meeting increasing resistance on every level: from informed citizens and their sheriffs to the House and the Senate. His time is running out.
A six-year-old boy was suspended from school in Trappe, Maryland, for the grave offense of using his fingers as an imaginary gun in a game of cops and robbers — the second such suspension in the Old Line State this month.
President Obama’s decision to have himself surrounded with school children as he announced his “proposals” to deal with “gun violence” on Wednesday caused a lot of hand-wringing among his opponents, but it should have served as a model for political victory.
