Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania is the latest local community to take a stand against the Police State. They recently passed a 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution that stands against the Feds trampling upon the Constitution in their neck of the woods.
The resolution affirms the natural rights of people saying that “any federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that in any way infringes on our Second Amendment rights by attempting to reduce the private ownership of any firearm, magazine or ammunition shall be unenforceable in Susquehanna County.”
As Judge Andrew Napolitano has said recently, widespread noncompliance can make a federal law “nearly impossible to enforce” (video here)
The passing of this resolution also marks a rare instance where bipartisanship within government works to the benefit of the American people. The resolution was introduced by Republican Commissioner Michael Giangrieco and supported by Democratic Commissioner MaryAnn Warren, as well as the whole committee. It was passed unanimously.
“The Constitution is in place to protect us from the government. They’ve got it backwards,” Commissioner Giangrieco said. It is refreshing to hear such common sense sentiments from government officials who usually do everything they can to obfuscate the real meaning of the Constitution in order bamboozle the public into giving them more power and money.
This is part of a hopeful trend that is emerging throughout Pennsylvania and the rest of the country with cities and counties everywhere taking a stand on behalf of the 2nd Amendment. Pennsylvania has been an early leader in this resistance with Gilberton police chief Mark Kessler even calling for citizens to stand with local law enforcement to show the Feds that their rights will not be trampled on in lieu of their recent bulk ammo purchases and martial law drills in cities across the nation.
