Today I presented our 2nd Amendment Resolution and Ordinance to the County Board of Supervisors. Supervisors Larry McDonald and Henry Cochran made statements and asked questions regarding the legality of the Ordinance and asked for advice from County Attorney Robert Shepard. Robert Shepard said that the Supreme Court was in charge of interpreting the constitution. I did rebut to the best of my ability, however, the statement that the Supreme Court would be the law in our county, in regards to the 2nd Amendment, remained. I cannot express in words, my deepest concern, for the future of our county and our 2nd Amendment Rights. If the Supreme Court rules against the 2nd Amendment, the words at this mornings supervisors meeting do not offer much hope. I encourage all citizens of this county to contact the Board of Supervisors and ask them to Nullify any Federal Laws that could infringe on our brith right the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

The Constitution of this country should over rule any other laws. We have not voted to change it. I certainly appreciate your stand and we must not let any judge take away our rights.

Thanks for trying to stay on top of our Constitutional Rights. If our stupid supervisors leave it up to the Supreme Courts to make a ruling, the why in the hell do we need Supervisors?? We could just sit back and let the Supreme Court make up The rules. Why do we need Supervisors in the first place, they are obsolete in modern counties. I can't believe the county hasn't progressed enough to eliminate them.

I personally do not see any 2nd Amendment rights at risk, they're going to bubble and boil about how things should be done, but the bottom line is going to be maybe more background check and I doubt that will ever see a vote. Just going through the usual concern dance, but the citizens of this country are not going to let them go too far. The old need your vote thing. Just my opinion.

This is a red neck gun toting group, and our supervisors know it. I think they need to ban cars, look how many are killed in wrecks everyday.

Got any better choice? some counties that opted for a different way converted back for some reason.

U.N. passes sweeping Arms Trade Treaty

Critics worry pact may lead to interference with 2nd Amendment
Published: 4 hours ago

(WASHINGTONTIMES)— The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday signed off on a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty to regulate the international arms trade, brushing aside worries from U.S. gun rights advocates that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry and disrupt the American gun market.

The long-debated U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) requires countries to regulate and control the export of weaponry such as battle tanks, combat vehicles and aircraft and attack helicopters, as well as parts and ammunition for such weapons. It also provides that signatories will not violate arms embargoes, international treaties regarding illicit trafficking, or sell weaponry to a countries for genocide, crimes against humanity or other war crimes.

With the Obama administration supporting the final treaty draft, the General Assembly vote was 154 to 3, with 23 abstentions.

American gun rights activists, though, insist the treaty is riddled with loopholes and is unworkable in part because it includes “small arms and light weapons” in its list of weaponry subject to international regulations. They do not trust U.N. assertions that the pact is meant to regulate only cross-border trade and would have no impact on domestic U.S. laws and markets.

John, I was there as well. I hate that I missed you. We seem to share a lot of views. I'd love to sit down over some coffee and share a discussion.
