Posted on 01/18/2013 2:37:06 PM PST by AuntB
The "Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act" is now working its way through the Oklahoma legislature.
Introduced by state senator Nathan Dahm, this legislation puts Oklahoma shoulder-to-shoulder with Wyoming and Texas by putting federal gun-grabbers in check.
The language of the legislation is clear: "Federal acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations, bans or registration requirements regarding firearms constitute an infringement on the individual right [to keep and bear arms] in the Constitution of the United States...and are hereby declared to be invalid in the State of Oklahoma."
The legislation mentions the "intent" of America's "Founders" and the Constitution's "ratifiers," and sets forth the punishment for trying to enforce new gun control measures:
Any official, agent, or employee of the United States government .............shall be punished by imprisonment in the custody of the Department of Corrections not to exceed five (5) years.
After reading this legislation, only one word comes to mind--FREEDOM.

It is in the best interests of the federal officials. Better 5 years in prison than 6 feet under.
Texas is the best-equipped of course.
In addition to having a large, angry population; it has oil, gas, agriculture, transportation infrastructure, and most importantly - seaports.
“In addition to having a large, angry population; it has oil, gas, agriculture, transportation infrastructure, and most importantly - seaports.”
....and guns. Lots of ‘em. I don’t think they’re angry, yet. Just resolved.
PS. Save me some backstrap. :<)
And you forgot to mention — the best medical facilities and the best BBQ, in that order.
GOOD READ HERE!!! FRom the Sheriff of a neighboring county.
By Sheriff Gil Gilbertson
January 18, 2013
[Note: The following letter was sent to Vice President Joe Biden from Josephine County, Oregon Sheriff Gil Gilbertson regarding the Constitutional rights of the second Amendment to the US Constitution.]

Vice President Joe Biden
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.
Washington, DC 20501
Dear Mr. Vice President,
As the elected Sheriff of this County, I am saddled with the duty, as well as responsibility, to uphold the Constitution and protect those people who placed their trust in me to do what is right.
I believe in our Constitution and all it stands for. We, you and I, are sworn to protect and defend our Constitution as required through the Oath of Office. This same Constitutional form of government provided us with the most privileged, and envied, country in world history.
Someone once said our country would collapse from within, without a shot being fired. No nation in the world can do more damage to the United States than we can inflict upon ourselves. We are keenly aware of just that by the accelerated pace in which our central (federal) government is usurping the Constitution. This lends itself to a much broader discussion, but for brevity sake I remain focused upon the Second, and Tenth Amendment issues.
It is so typical of the big brother mentality to punish the masses, for the heinous crimes committed by a few despicable individuals.
The Constitution, and Bill of Rights, guarantees liberties to the people. These documents, as you know, cannot be whisked to the side by regulation or executive order. According to these documents, the Executive and Judicial branches were to have NO lawmaking powers. The question then becomes how is it executive orders can be enforced as if they were laws?
As such, any rule, regulation, or executive order repugnant to the constitutional rights of the citizens of this County will be ignored by this Office, nor will this office, or the citizens, allow enforcement of unconstitutional activities by federal officers.
We refuse to participate, or allow our law-abiding citizens to be criminalized through constitutionally repugnant actions by misguided intentions or politicians.
Sheriff Gilbertson further states:
If our President ever wanted to polarize our nation, this may be the topic that accomplishes just that. Let me embellish on the two levels of government.
The Sheriffs Office is the supreme law enforcement officer over their county and the federal government cannot supersede that legal authority.
Justice Antonin Scalia wrote: The great innovation of this design was that our citizens would have two political capacities, one state and one federal, each protected from incursion by the other a legal system unprecedented in form and design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own set of mutual rights and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it. (P.920
Scalia then quoted the man considered to be the Father of the US Constitution, President James Madison, when he wrote in the decision: [T]he local or municipal authorities form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres, to the general authority than the general authority is subject to them. Within its own sphere. The Federalist, No. 39 at 245.
Scalia then referred to Gregory, 501 US at 458 when he wrote: This separation of the two spheres is one of the Constitutions structural protections of liberty: Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the Federal Government serve to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front
Referring once again to President Madison, Scalia wrote: In the compound republic of America, the power surrendered by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each subdivided amo0ng distinct and separate departments. Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself. (P.922).
You forgot to mention bass fishing!
Nathan is a real young guy. He operated his campaign on a shoestring. His main strategy was basically door to door self introductions. His opponent on the other was well connected multi-multi millionaire and not a bad candidate in his own right.
Apparently this energetic campaign paid huge dividends because, after being a big underdog, he pretty much ran away with the election.
He is definitely someone to watch in the future.
What a great letter!
Honestly, who would be stupid enough to pull this kind of stunt? (Federal gun grabbers)
Yes, it is!
How sweet it is...
“The Sheriffs Office is the supreme law enforcement officer over their county and the federal government cannot supersede that legal authority.”
But America cannot survive without the booming North Dakota oil.
“The Oklahoma Gov. just got her conceal carry permit yesterday. “
Nice! I got updates from Mary Fallin during her last election. The lib media so hates to admit ‘redneck’ states might elect a woman!
Don’t only go after the federal gun grabber, put out a “Wanted” poster on whoever issued that unconstitutional order in the first place.
I would love to see some FEDS looking out through the bars at BIG MAC!
Hope it’s a felony charge. In most states if a death occurs in the commission of a felony, The charge is spelled M u r d e r... Also a citizen can often use his gun to prevent a felony.
Wouldn’t this legislation also include machine guns that were banned by the fed after 1986.
