Constitutional Sheriff’s Association

County sheriffs are the highest-ranking law enforcement official in your area, and they are elected by the people, unlike police chiefs who are political appointees.

Where does your County Sheriff stand on protecting your Second Amendment and other Constitutional rights? Will he or she stand up for you against the on-going rush in the Federal government to restrict your rights?

The Constitutional Sheriff’s Association is a grass-roots activist organization that supports those Sheriff’s who adhere to their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Membership is free and open to all. Set up as a social network, it has State and County groups within the overall organization.

I encourage everyone to join, and get involved in your State and County groups. Fundamental change begins at the local level. Bloggers and writers, there’s room for your expertise. Many county-level groups are still in need of administrators.

    Sorry, I’ve given up on enacting any meaningful change using the so-called political process.

    We are ruled by a set of criminal cartels (whether Republican or Democrat) and they simply duke it out over which of them will be robbing the treasury this cycle. At the moment, the Democrat Cartel (obviously closely allied with the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico judging by Fast and Furious) is in power.

    Changing one cartel for another will make no appreciable difference.

    So your solution is to sit back and just let it happen?

    This nation was founded by people who took grass-roots level action. It starts at the local level, or it dies at the local level. Congress and the Senate no longer represent us, so it’s up to We The People to start to stand up. Federal laws can be NULLIFIED. But it has to start with patriots at the local level.

    Sir M,

    No my solution is to prepare and be ready.

    When the balloon goes up, I’ll be there. As Sablegsd says, “Rule of law is dead in this country.”

    See Dr. Reynold’s piece on Due Process When Everything Is A Crime. See any analysis of the criminality of the cartels running the country. You can go to meetings, you can participate in ‘grass roots’ whatever and it will have exactly zero effect.

    Meanwhile, I’ll be ready for what is slouching towards us. Won’t start it, but will sure as hell be part of finishing it and cleaning up the mess.

    Seems Appropriate:

    http://tlinexile.blogspot.com/2013/02/clinging-to-broken-paradigm.html

    State by state the collectivists are racking up victories on gun control while the majority cling to a broken paradigm. Too many still believe that elections will solve something; that Republicans are champions of liberty. They are not. This is no longer about the GOP vs the Democrats. Our representatives have already sold us out, whether the Senate holds the line on the Assault Weapons Ban, or not, they will cave on something, sometime.

    We are witnessing the implosion of liberty and rights. We have been for a long time. We have waited for the Republicans to do something to express our thoughts and demands to the government at large, but they have not. They have not taken their oaths seriously enough to bring impeachment charges against Barack Obama for abuse of power, even when the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Obama had done just that by making recess appointments when the Senate was not at recess. They have not because they are cowards terrified of the media.

    In a previous post that I removed because my thoughts had not clearly been conveyed called “Vote Democrat” I tried to explain, that if one is still a Republican, they do not understand the dynamic. One is either willing to fight for their rights, or they are willing to abdicate your rights along with theirs.

    It is not about politics, or power in the political system. It is a broken system. It is a broken nation. It is a broken government that has disconnected itself from its authority. It is rogue. To even participate in elections at this point is like choosing sides between two criminals guilty of the same crime. To choose one criminal because they vote Republican is insane.

    That being said – sure would be a lot easier to cause the feds mayhem if the local sheriff is telling them to fuck off while you’re getting up to it….

    Exactly Hemp Rope.

    Let’s help it get started. I’m thinking I’m going to start ‘voting’ for every piece of statist crap that comes down the pike. The faster we push this over the tipping point, the faster we can start seeing what’s needed to fix it and go back to being a Constitutional republic with actual laws and a government rather than a criminal tyranny.

    Time to contact my ‘representatives’ and encourage them to vote for the strongest gun control, the highest taxes, the most regulations, every socialist dream they ever had. Kick ‘em in! Right now! Let’s blow through another $2T stimulus – SOON! Jack the taxes through the roof! MORE Obamacare – hell, them durn’d Republican obstructionists are going to foul it up, let’s be smart and fully nationalize health care RIGHT NOW. He can do it via executive order.

    Sheriff in my County is on the list and about 80% of the Deputies are members of Oath Keepers. They are quietly digging in and preparing for the worst!

    They get to see the dysfunction of DHS (VIA Border Patrol) on a daily basis (we are a Border County) and have damn little hope for the future!

    Also if you look at the count of Background checks in this state alone it is staggering and here if you have a CCW you DO NOT GET A BACKGROUND CHECK! So all of those checks are NEW gun owners. Bob Owens was right, this is a nation arming for war!

    When my state went CCW, I saw it then as a road to confiscation in the future and refused to get one. I also saw it as unconstitutional in that I see nothing in the 2nd Amendment that says I may bear arms unless they are under my coat. Since then Alaska has seen fit to allow us to carry concealed with no permit. Not sure how the actual statute reads but I prefer to think that they have acknowledged that that it’s part of our 2nd Amendment rights.

    The point I’m trying to make is I get a background check every time I buy gun and I’m not a newbie. I don’t know how many like me there are out there but I’m sure there are some and they would definitely skew the statistics.

    I’m also under no illusion that my name isn’t going into a database somewhere every time I get a background check but at least I can find out if I’m a criminal.

    Sheriff in my county is not generally aware that there is a Second Amendment in the bill of rights. He seems to think it skips from 1st to 3rd.

    Unless, I have heard tell, you contribute around $10k to his reelection campaign, then he’ll suddenly sign a piece of paper that allows you to carry concealed.

    I find myself in the same school of thought as HempRope and Orion …

    The only meaningful “grass roots” activity at this point is figuring out which of your neighbors will help you defend your family and property, and which will sell you out for another day’s rations.

    Research is now the ultimate prepping activity … where utility lines have access and are where they’re vulnerable, transportation choke points, water sources and fuel sources, likely sources of wildlife, municipal vehicle and supply depots, drone-proof shelter and movement, etc.

    It’s coming … not a question of if, just when.

    IN SEARCH of an OPEN THREAD……………………………

    I think my wife is cheating on me

    I’ve never talked about this before, but I really need the boards advice on what could be a crucial decision. I’ve suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me.

    The usual signs… Phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up.
    My wife has been going out with the girls a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, “Just some friends from work, you don’t know them.”

    I always stay awake to look out for her taxi coming home, but she always walks down the drive. Although I can hear a car driving off, as if she has gotten out of the car round the corner. Why? Maybe she wasn’t in a taxi?

    I once picked her cell phone up just to see what time it was and she went berserk and screamed that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her.

    Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife I think deep down I just didn’t want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her.

    I decided I was going to park my motorcycle next to the garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the whole street when she came home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my bike , that I noticed that the valve covers on my engine seemed to be leaking a little oil.
    Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the dealer?

    My neighbor downstairs is an old Stalinist, in his 60s. Said to me the other day, “All property is theft!”

    Needless to say, I never talk politics with people of his ilk. Hell, I’m not even up to anything, but people like that would drop a dime on you just to see your crib get tossed for fun. You know? I don’t trust him as far as I can kick him, and I’ve known him for 20 years.

    This has some Very Useful Facts and Evidence to use against the “gun control” crowd. From Jeff Jacoby, writing for The Boston Globe.

    After the ‘toughest’ gun law, gun crime rose
    by Jeff Jacoby
    The Boston Globe
    February 17, 2013

    In 1998, Massachusetts passed what was hailed as the toughest gun-control legislation in the country. Among other stringencies, it banned semiautomatic “assault” weapons, imposed strict new licensing rules, prohibited anyone convicted of a violent crime or drug trafficking from ever carrying or owning a gun, and enacted severe penalties for storing guns unlocked.

    “Today, Massachusetts leads the way in cracking down on gun violence,” said Republican Governor Paul Cellucci as he signed the bill into law. “It will save lives and help fight crime in our communities.” Scott Harshbarger, the state’s Democratic attorney general, agreed: “This vote is a victory for common sense and for the protection of our children and our neighborhoods.” One of the state’s leading anti-gun activists, John Rosenthal of Stop Handgun Violence, joined the applause. “The new gun law,” he predicted, “will certainly prevent future gun violence and countless grief.”

    It didn’t.

    The 1998 legislation did cut down, quite sharply, on the legal use of guns in Massachusetts. Within four years, the number of active gun licenses in the state had plummeted. “There were nearly 1.5 million active gun licenses in Massachusetts in 1998,” the AP reported. “In June [2002], that number was down to just 200,000.” The author of the law, state Senator Cheryl Jacques, was pleased that the Bay State’s stiff new restrictions had made it possible to “weed out the clutter.”

    But the law that was so tough on law-abiding gun owners had quite a different impact on criminals.

    Since 1998, gun crime in Massachusetts has gotten worse, not better. Instead of “lead[ing] the way in cracking down on gun violence,” the state has seen gun violence shoot up. In 2011, Massachusetts recorded 122 murders committed with firearms, the Boston Globe reported this month – “a striking increase from the 65 in 1998.” Other crimes rose too. Between 1998 and 2011, robbery with firearms climbed 20.7 percent. Aggravated assaults jumped 26.7 percent.

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for gun-control activists to admit they were wrong. The treatment they prescribed may have yielded the opposite of the results they promised, but they’re quite sure the prescription wasn’t to blame. Crime didn’t rise in Massachusetts because the state made it harder for honest citizens to lawfully carry a gun, they say; it rose because other states didn’t do the same thing.”
