There is so much negative news about law enforcement out there (and, too often, it’s because too many law enforcement officers abuse their positions) that it’s nice to be able to share a piece of good news about law enforcement officers actually taking their oath of office and their duties seriously.
So, here’s the specific situation: the State of Washington decided to ignore all reality and jump completely on board the anti-gun bandwagon. Yes, they had gun control before, but they’ve upped their efforts now. But that doesn’t mean that sheriffs in that state are going along with this unconstitutional idea. Matt Agorist writes,
In reaction to the tragic shootings throughout 2018, Washington state has passed and is planning to pass a slew of new anti-gun bills that will make them one of the most regulated states in the country. But these bills are being met by resistance from an unlikely group. A handful of sheriffs is standing up to the “unconstitutional” nature of the bills and is promising disobedience.
Sheriff Bob Songer is one of these sheriffs who is outspoken about his resistance. During an interview with the Guardian, published over the weekend, Songer told the newspaper that the anti-gun legislation passed last November “is unconstitutional on several grounds. I’ve taken the position that as an elected official, I am not going to enforce that law.”
Songer—like every single sheriff and law enforcement officer in the country—swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, and now he’s overtly honoring it by protecting the Second Amendment.
Agorist mentions other sheriffs in Washington resisting unconstitutional anti-gun measures by the state, too. If the State of Connecticut is an example of what will happen, then the cities in Washington State with these sheriffs will become “sanctuary cities” for gun rights.
While the entire nation should be a sanctuary for gun rights, we applaud these law enforcement officers who take their oath of office seriously. Good for them, and may their example turn the tide in Washington so that gun rights dominate instead of being attacked.
FINALLY! Some sanity in this country. Common, let ALL sheriffs follow this example! It IS the Law of the Land, after all!
More Patriots, kudos sheriff. The silent majority is silent no longer. MOLON LABE.
Oath keepers will keep the peace by keeping the constitution…otherwise people like me don’t give a damn what You wear over Your heart or the uniform You wear…if You tread on us we will revolt…don’t tread on me
GOD BLESS ALL LAWENFORCEMENT THAT’S RESPECTING THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS AND IGNORING THE ANTI GUN AND GUN CONTROL LIBERAL LEFTISTS TRAITOR’S WHO SEEK TOTAL POWER AND CONTROL OVER THE CITIZEN GOVERNMENT OF THIS NATION AND THE SITTING PRESIDENT!! GOD PROTECT ALL LAW ABIDING AND HONEST UNCORRUPTED LAWENFORCEMENT AND THE LAW ABIDING CITIZEN’S THEY PROTECT!! THANK GOD FOR OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AS AMERICAN CITIZENS!! VOTE AND FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT’S OUR FORFATHER’S DIED TO MAKE US FREE AND SAFE!! THANK GOD
THE SECOND AMENDMENT SAYS (SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!) THAT MEANS DON’T ALTER IT IN ANY WAY!! CAN NOT BE AMENDED BY ANY MEANS OR PERSON AT ANY LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT!!
Quoting the author –> “ANTI-GUN BILLS THAT WILL MAKE THEM ONE OF THE MOST REGULATED STATES IN THE COUNTRY.”
The term “REGULATED gives Washington State Law makers much more credence and respect than they deserve !!! It would be more accurate if it were phased thusly: –> anti-gun bills make them on of the most UNCONSTITUTIONAL INFRINGING states in the country !
The U.S. Constitution trumps The State of Washington Statues.
Finally some government official is doing the right thing he is actually sticking to an oath he swore to uphold. That being the Constitution Of The United States Of America hats off to this sheriff. Stand your ground and keep doing the right thing officer Bob we The People applaud you for going against an unconstitutional act from the corrupt government. Once again stand strong and know GOD is with you.
One more thing it is very unconstitutional what this government is trying to do. We need to tar and feather these traitors in public this might wake up some of the people if they see these traitors get the punishment they truly deserve. They can’t keep getting away with breaking the LAWS of this Nation. They are set out to destroy America and we can’t let this happen Trump start arresting these traitors that have and are committing crimes of treason. Enough is Enough
These Sheriffs that protect our rights under the Second Amendment are the top of the line in Law Enforcement, up holding their oath of office, and protecting the citizens against all wrongs under their supervision of Law Enforcement.
It’s about time. Good for those sheriffs. If they can have sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants, then we can have them for gun ownership!
Glad to hear there are still sheriffs with brains. One only has to examine the states with biggest gun bans . Like Chicago and New York and California . Crime and murder runs rampant . Their people are being killed constantly 24/7 .
The Demoncrats love criminals and hate decent, honest citizens! The Demoncrats are currently busy killing babies! What’s next? Killing old people?
Another Navy PO2 here as a gunners mate from the Vietnam era , they may find that hard to do
I don’t trust a word the Democrats say.!!
As one who lives in Washington state, I can attest to the angst we have with Olympia trying to legislate our guns out of existence. The law that most of the sheriffs in the state abhor was put on the ballot and passed by mostly those living in the greater Seattle area, which should surprise no one because it’s the greatest concentration of freaking libtards! The vote in the majority of the counties were against the bill. But King, Pierce and Snohomish counties is where it passed. Those three counties have the heaviest concentration of the state’s population, and also elect the worst Democrats for office, Patty Murray being one of them. Heaven help us! The NRA has taken the law to court for its unconstitutionality. We’re hoping and praying that it will be overturned by the SCOTUS!
Please note – Most of the public officials from the POTUS to the local school boards take some form of oath when they take office to “uphold the Constitution of the United States”. The problem is, it is just meaningless words to most and there seems to be no accountability to those who choose not to support the Constitution. How many Senators and Congresspersons should be in Federal Prison for blatantly violating their oath of office?
When did violating your oath of office become a crime punishable with prison time? If that were true Obama and a lot of other politicians should be behind bars. If people will start using the power given to them by voting out the bums you will see less of this. But no, the people have become enslaved to the powers of Washington. It is time to show them this country is ruled by “We the people.”
To all members of the Armed Forces: The first sentence in MY Enlistment Oath is to DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, BOTH FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. And this includes the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments, ALL of which have been VIOLATED in the name of “gun control”. My term of service has expired, but my Enlistment Oath HAS NOT.
WE NEED SOME GOOD CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYERS TO FIGHT THESE BLATANT, FLAGRANT VIOLATIONS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.
Most people are so naive and forgetful, the first action of tyrannical rulers is to take away guns from the people, then they tell you what to eat, how to dress, they even tell you how to move from one place to other. Total control over the people is the goal. That’s what happened in Cuba, Venezuela, North Corea, China, etc.,etc. Open your eyes, don’t allow socialist take control of our great nation.
Now, if we can just get law enforcement to refuse to enforce the sanctuary city/state laws we’ll be moving back in the correct direction. As I consistently tell all who will listen, without the Second Amendment, there would be no other amendments or a Constitution, for that matter. The libtards would have brought fascism/socialism as our government, long ago. FDR, anyone?
The reason they are coming after the rights of the people is because we have already accepted GUN CONTROL. We have never called for a repeal against the absurd bogus corrupt law that say’s felons cannot own guns. BULL. If a man or woman is that bad. They should NOT be on the street PERIOD. That came straight out of the 68 GUN CONTROL ACT. But why should WE care? We let the same group MURDER our unborn. Which clearly shows me that why would they give a flip if another group is set up to be murdered by taking their natural GOD GIVEN rights away forcefully. Reading some people’s statements saying basically WHO CARES? It’s just criminals. BE DAMN CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. We are in the early stages of a POLICE STATE. You and everyone are now sitting ducks. I have witnessed it and about puked seeing what is going on from the cop shop to the court room. If WE do not reverse this. Then stop gasping over what more they plan and will do. And NEVER EVER try to convince me that you do not support GUN CONTROL. To those few of you who are in this fight with me. May GOD BLESS US and put down all these Political MURDERERS. Who are More of a FELON then those they jail. Personally. To all you chest beating so called patriots. I can hear Jesus Christ our LORD and Savior’s words. YOU WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW. Enjoy your bitter harvest. Or maybe you should try something different. WAKE THE FLIP UP. before it’s too late. If it isn’t already.
It’s about time the war starts and these queer leaders throwed out of America. The. Leaders we know have all its few are anti God and this is what you get.
We must insist that our constitution be followed! More people are carrying guns all the time. Our police response time is over twenty min. What am I to do is my house is broken into?
Our Motto in our House. If our Dogs don’t get you first We will And we wont count to one. We are Fully Loaded & ready. If things keep going like they are now The demirats will be taking over the White House if were not careful. We will be going to a socialized America . With no rights at all. Will all this come down to us being taken over like & run like so many Cattle. Our Four Fathers, Four saw all this as a reality, And tried to protect us when the wrote the Constitution like they did. We do have a President who is trying his best to keep our rights in order. Building that wall is our safety as it should be. What do we have to do to keep our God Given Right’s??? Have Another WAR???? Fight to keep them. My Father was a WW ll VET A War Hero who came Home after Being Wounded. He was one of the lucky. Are we to have another one here in our America just to keep & defend our God Given Rights. I have one more thing to say, Get behind our President help him fight. He is a appointed choisen by God to help us. Stop fighting him get it together or we will loose the battle.
Stop complaining, Organize to Refuse, any Laws against the Constitution, regardless who makes them, if you don’t, you agree with them, we should Group Together, the right to assemble citizens and Arrest those who go against the Constitution, then have a Public Trial by there Piers, and if found treasonous put to death. a few of these arrests will stop the Destruction of are Constitution. Are Amendment, states Death for Treason. This would be a short War
Well it’s about time someone in the position they were hired to do or elected to do follow the law ! I know a bunch of D whom should be looking out from behind bars wearing orange jumper suites that aren’t following the laws they were sworn in to office to follow and preserve ! They all need to be arrested and form a long line into the jail cell and as they are assigned to the cells the attitude and vote would change and president Trump would have be going around them as the were filled in rank and order the would quite braking the laws this country was found on , and it that doesn’t change there law breaking hearts sit them on the other side of the wall with those whom are breaking the laws coming into this country illegally ! Why these whom have been braking the laws aren’t being arrested along with those coming into this country illegally ???
Something u all need to think about,this certain( group) and we know gew I’m talking about,do not serve in the military,our kids do,with that said we have been at war ongoing for over seventy five years our kids r dying by the thousands and theirs live and breed more,not to mention all the gews coming from Russia,the little story of them being only one percent is a fable a big fat lie,like the holohoax and be it known every gew I have had the shit luck of knowing owns an ar15, and that explains all the ammo the govt bought up so they take yer guns and keep theirs,then and only then u get what poor Russia had to go through the Bolshevik revolution where millons of innocent Russian people were slaughtered,so go ahead and give up yer guns
I want gew out of my country 110 never again
Shut the Fuck up asswipe you are such an ignoramus you can’t even spell. Sub 90 IQ jackass should be shot like lame horses
I am constantly amazed at these comments. I read the same things over and over. We need to unite, stand up and be counted and show a united front to our government. We need to demand our “God Given Rights.” Our government is there by our consent and are accountable. If they do not want to abide by our will, then they should resign or be removed.
Our government is bloated with employees doing nothing. This cost the taxpayers over and over. We must demand accountability. We must demand a balanced budget. We must demand our country become great again. Our country must become self reliant first and then assist other countries. Cut the foreign spending. Close the borders and start making products again, for our country’s consumption. We must bring our manufacturing back into this country. Remove the illegal aliens.
We can go on and on about all of this but, WE MUST STAND TOGETHER!
Designate our leaders/speakers. Follow them and back them up. Organize.
With all of this, we must show that we are intelligent, thoughtful and considerate of our fellow citizens.
When you write something for everyone to read, please proofread it. Check your spelling, grammar and punctuation. No one will give credibility to an illiterate person who rants on and on. Credibility is important. Using proper grammar, spelling and punctuation makes communication and understanding what you are saying much easier.
That I agree with. Enough talk action but pushback hard make the left extinct. Start with the anti semitic asshole I feel it’s my Christian duty to put a bullet in his head. Oh btw I don’t miss the Government Federal and state spent over a million dollars in my training. Went to war once and my oath says all enemies foreign and domestic.
One more thing!
DID…..YOU…..VOTE….in all of your elections? Apathy runs rampant. That is one of your rights. Take advantage of it.
Thank you, Sheriff Songer! As you so aptly pointed out, your sworn duty is to uphold the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC! Especially when those enemies are your own State Government trampling on the rights guaranteed by our Constitution, trying to strengthen their own power rather than enforcing the will of those who elected them! Give ’em Hell, Sir!! (Myself a Deputy Sheriff in MD)
Never give up! Our constitutional rights, freedoms. Never Ever! We will need to band together that means if we all move too a few states and make our stand so be it, then take our country Back inch by inch. Put the fear of God in these politicians, judges, lawyers, professors, etc and the like.
Also when people start too congregate in these areas those people already there need too help us who make it too adjust and help out, we’ll be refugees for a bit but help us be productive, train fight, need land too stay on for those that can’t afford, but willing too fight do ones part too take our country back.
