We at the Tenth Amendment Center are well aware that it has taken a long time for us to lose our liberty, and reclaiming it will be no easy task. Recently, we have suffered some set-backs at the state level. Unfortunately, many of our so-called public servants do not take their oath to the Constitution seriously and show nothing but contempt for the people who they are supposed to be representing.
The first disappointment came at the local level. We have covered the heroic patriots in Oscoda County extensively in their fight to preserve the 2nd Amendment on here and our national blog. They went from township to township attempting to get the 2nd Amendment Preservation Act passed with several successes. They tried to build upon those successes and replicate it at the county level. Unfortunately, they were not very well received by the County Commissioners.
After a contentious hearing on Aug. 13, the resolution was rejected. One Commissioner, Larry Wilson made the motion to adopt and support the resolution, but there was no second and the rest of the commissioners were against it. The rationale they used to reject it was redundancy. They alleged that since they already took their oath, they didn’t feel it was necessary to send a strong message to the federal gun grabbers. The majority felt it wasn’t in the jurisdiction of the county commission to stand up for the Bill of Rights. These are rather pathetic and craven excuses considering our freedoms are in such jeopardy. It is worth noting that everyone on this board was a Republican. I will address the problem with these wolves in sheep’s clothing later on.Details
