Sheriff Stands With The Second Amendment

Here is another brave Sheriff from Maryland. Sheriff Mike Lewis has stated that he, “Will not comply”, if the states lawmakers pass a long gun licensing and confiscation law.

He is the Sheriff of Wicomico County in Maryland. He told the press that he believes that lawmakers are punishing residents throughout the state for the out-of-control crime in Baltimore. He added, “Law-abiding citizens are repeatedly being penalized because of Baltimore City’s inability to control their crime. And I’m sorry — I’m not someone’s puppet.

There are two bills that are being considered House bill 786 and HB 796. HB 786 will regulate shotguns and hinting rifles like hand guns. HB 796 would require confiscation of firearms from unlicensed owners.

Lewis stressed his determination to 786 by stating, “I will stand against it.”

Sherriff Lewis should be applauded for standing up to tyranny and for the rights of the citizens. We will need many more men like him in the future.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Status

I wrote an article regarding red flag laws and how they lead to the destruction of our second amendment rights, as well as due process. These laws are very broadly written. They rely solely on anyone making an accusation about someone else who they say is a danger. That is all law enforcement needs to then confiscate someone’s firearms. This accusation could be from someone who holds a grudge, an ex-girlfriend seeking revenge, anyone for any reason. Without due process your guns will be confiscated.

In New Mexico, Democrats led by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, are pushing universal background checks, gun confiscation via red flag laws, and a broadened prohibited persons list for firearm purchases and possession.

In response to this, 29 of New Mexico’s 33 counties have declared sanctuary status. The sheriff’s in these counties are refusing to enforce these laws if enacted. The New Mexico Sheriff’s Association also made clear it plans to sue the state if the new gun controls are enacted.

Also, in Colorado the same thing is happening. If you want more information on that you can find it here.

Oregon’s New Gun Law Proposals

What the Oregon legislator is proposing is truly draconian. The NRA had stated that the law if enacted would make Oregon the most restrictive state in the country. Senate Bill 501, would require prospective gun owners to obtain a license before making a firearms purchase. It would make magazines capable of holding more than five rounds illegal and limit individual ammunition purchases to no more than 20 rounds every 30 days. Can you believe that, 20 rounds every 30 days? That is insane!

Senate Bill 501 doesn’t stop there. It also would mandate that a background check be delayed for two weeks so the Oregon State Police can complete the needed research into a prospective buyer’s background, which could entail police showing up at your place of work, interviewing your neighbors, or studying your Facebook and Twitter profiles for politically incorrect postings.

It should be no surprise that the sponsor of this bill, Senator Rob Wagner, has been backed by the anti-American Michael Bloomberg.

It gets worse. This bill has no provisions for self-defense or self-defense firearms. Neither does its language allow owners to retain possession of currently owned, currently legal magazines, which may be affected by the ban.

The article that I am referencing is from the USCCA and speaks about handloading as a skill we should look into. I agree.
