Oscoda County is emerging as the hub for the Michigan Constitutional resistance.
The township of Elmer unanimously passed a resolution affirming the Second Amendment rights of its residents.
Elmer joins Big Creek and Comins townships in Oscoda County in passing Second Amendment Preservation Resolutions, with Greenfield passing a motion to uphold the entire Constitution. In lieu of this recent action, it is clear that Oscoda County has emerged as the trailblazer in protecting the rights of Michigan gun owners.
While Elmer Township made a statement that Second Amendment rights will be preserved there, two townships in Oscoda sadly rejected or stalled resolutions. Mentor officials rejected the resolution on a 2-3 vote, while Clinton tabled the vote pending review from the Michigan Township Association.
Still, a majority of townships within the county have passed something affirming the Second Amendment. Activists hope that this will serve to alert the freedom-starved masses that local, civic action is the way to fight back against federal overreach. These resolutions also make a bold statement to state legislature and will hopefully motivate them to wake up from their malaise, honor their oath and step up to protect the rights of their citizens.
“You end up creating a message, education, and influence [by passing these resolutions] that our rights shall not be infringed as a FREE People,” Oscoda County Republican Party Chair Doug Davis said.
Davis was influential in getting the resolutions passed.
“Also, by doing so, you send the message to the top, that we the People, DO NOT stand for the shredding of our God-Given rights!”Details
