Hood County 2nd Amendment Resolution

#1

Post by carlson1 » Tue Oct 08, 2019 10:13 pm

County commissioners took an oath to "support and defend" the U.S. and Texas, as long as the laws are constitutional, the resolution says.

The resolution continues, the "Commissioners Court affirms its support for the duly elected Sheriff of Hood County, Texas, in the exercise of his sound discretion, and affirms its resolve to support decisions by our Sheriff to not enforce any unconstitutional firearms restrictions against any citizen."

While it is certainly good news....it is also a poignant example of something that is very wrong.

This mans 'stand' to uphold his vows should be the NORM...not the exception.

It is sad that we find ourselves celebrating an occurrence that should be just day to day policy.

From what I can tell....this Sheriff's position is in line with many other departments across the country, so maybe they are just more honest than Police Chiefs...who seem to make up the bulk of the problem (anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment, anti-right to protect one's self).

Difference is Sheriffs are elected and Police Chiefs are appointed! Most Police Chiefs are political hacks!

The difference here is that Hood and the other counties are "sanctuaries" for law abiding citizens of this country (the Constitution trumps all other laws), while other "sanctuary" cities / counties are sanctuaries for criminals who are not citizens of this country.

The Collin County Commissioners Court passed a resolution today. The video for the proceedings can be found at the following link;

http://collincountytx.new.swagit.com/vi ... 261?ts=360

The resolution itself is in this link;
http://eagenda.collincountytx.gov:8085/ ... ment%2Epdf

This resolution should NOT be controversial. It is merely a reaffirmation of support for the 2nd amendment, and a reaffirmation to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and the State of Texas.

This is basically the same oath that all elected officials in the State of Texas take.
This is basically the same oath that all law enforcement in the State of Texas take.
This is basically the same oath that all attorneys take when they pass the Texas Bar.

And yet, there were many in the room speaking in opposition to the proposed resolution. One gentleman was wearing a familiar red t-shirt under his coat. Another woman wore a "March for our lives" t-shirt. More than one registered nurse. One of the people testifying in opposition, needed a deputy to be called to politely escort her back to her seat. She had a few outbursts when others were speaking and was very close to being thrown out.

While this resolution changed nothing to restore/regain our 2A rights, it is important to send a message to our elected officials in Austin and Washington to remind them that we will not tolerate those who would break their oaths. For those who watch the video, there were fewer people speaking in favor of the resolution than speaking in opposition. With primary season about to start, it is getting to the time where candidates are going to be out asking for support (both votes and financial). This is where we have the ability to have a civil conversation with our elected representatives (and candidates seeking those offices) about our concerns. I have already started doing that in my area, and I would encourage everyone else to do the same.
