Who will stand up to feds?

  • Follow Letters

Out of all the candidates running for sheriff in Richmond County, I haven’t heard any of them talk about how they would handle an out-of-control, draconian federal government.

We witnessed during hurricane Katrina that the feds will unconstitutionally disarm law-abiding citizens. Thankfully there were some county sheriffs on the Gulf Coast who stood up to the feds, and told them they are not going to disarm their citizens.

A candidate for sheriff must realize, if elected he will be the ultimate law authority in Richmond County. He will be sworn to defend his citizens against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

These days, the biggest threats seem to come from Washington, D.C. Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, lead the most anti-gun administration in American history.

There will be a day they will come for your guns, and the county sheriff is the last line of defense against these people in Washington.

The bottom line is, our next sheriff must be ready to tell these federal interlopers that he is the one who will decide what is and what is not enforced in the county.

Who will stand up to the feds, and who will bow?

Really?

Keep stocking up your bunker. Federal money will soon begin to withdraw from the CSRA.

I do not like Obama either, but the writer has to admit it's a stretch to blame Obama for what occurred during Katrina, right?!

Clinton was Worst President for Gun Control

I am not aware of any significant new restrictions on guns during Obama's term.

In my book, Bill Clinton was the worst president in terms of gun control. That was when we had a number of new restrictions, many of which have been rolled back. Remember when magazines were limited to 10 rounds only?

Unpublished

I didn't see anyone blame Obama for what happened during Katrina.

If you read the letter, it clearly says that the threat comes from the Feds, then says that "THESE DAYS, the biggest threats seem to come from Washington, D.C. Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder."

This letter seems pretty non-partisan to me.

"These days, the biggest threats seem to come from Washington, D.C. Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, lead the most anti-gun administration in American history."

There is nothing 'non-partisan' about that. This fear that Obama is going to take our rifles and pistols away holds no water. It bothers me because this comes up once in a while in ACES, every month in NRA, and it's the reason why there is such a large backlog to getting parts I want to build my AR.

Seems pretty obvious that the writer of this letter CLEARLY indicated that the problem existed BEFORE Obama took office....but if all you can see is hatred of Obama, then so be it.

BTW....what parts are you needing.... Model One has TONS of parts.

Unpublished

"This administration has consistently favored the reinstitution of the assault weapons ban. It is something that we think was useful in the past with regard to the reduction that we’ve seen in crime, and certainly would have a positive impact on our relationship and the crime situation in Mexico."

What the writer didn't make

What the writer didn't make clear was that it was a republican time. Omission of the (R) during a negative event/scandal, then throw out liberal names later tends to indicate partisan thoughts.

Eric Holder can't be that against weapons, he has no problem selling them to drug cartels.

And I've ordered everything I needed- just there is so much backlog because people are afraid of Obama. I'll check out Model 1 though- never heard of it. Thanks for the tip.

Fix the Gov't - Become part of it.

Who or what is this Federal Government? Some bogeyman under the Big Bed? No, folks... the gov'mint is YOU & ME. It always was. You don't like what your elected representatives are doing with YOUR government? Here are three things you can do about it: 1) find a politician you trust, get him (her) elected, hold him accountable for his actions. Repeat every election cycle as necessary. 2) can't find a good pol in this mix-up mix-up world? You know what you gotta do then... drop everything else, run for office, get elected, do the dang job yourself. #1 "impossible?" #2 "too much work?" Then 3) sit down and be quiet.

We The People get EXACTLY the government we deserve.

Are you kidding me?

Google: Obama and U.N. gun rights...

I can't believe how uninformed or naive some people are today. Do your own homework!
