CSPOA/Sheriff Mack Press Release: Dated Sept. 10, 2013
Today the CSPOA learned that the Missouri Sheriff’s Association “Board” voted to oppose a strong and correct piece of legislation (HB436) in an effort to override the Governor’s veto of a bill already passed by a substantial majority of MO legislators. The MO legislature was absolutely correct in doing so and was actually doing their job to keep unlawful federal gun control statutes off the backs of Missourians!
James Madison said, “We can safely rely on the disposition of State Legislatures to erect barriers against the encroachments of the national authority.”
We should be able to depend on Sheriffs, Chiefs of Police, County Commissioners, and all other local officials to do the same; erect barriers against tyranny and DC corruption. The federal government is out of control and local officials have no obligation to go along with it, quite the contrary. If we do oppose federal usurpations then the feds might just retaliate by cutting federal funding for local programs. What does that make local leaders who compromise liberty to keep federal grants coming in?Details
