Firearm Confiscation by Law Enforcement in a Nutshell

Video:  Firearm Confiscation by Law Enforcement in a Nutshell

NC Rengegade: The video was filmed at the Moccasin Creek Minutemen meeting on the 2nd amendment in Zebulon, NC on January 17, 2013. Three North Carolina sheriffs addressed a group of over 200 people who are concerned that the federal government will infringe upon our 2nd amendment rights. The consensus after the meeting is that we are now even more concerned about our right to bear arms. All three sheriffs (Donnie Harrison-Wake County, Jerry Jones-Franklin County and Carey Winders-Wayne County) assured the people that they would not confiscate our firearms. The reason: the federal government will not pass legislation restricting the 2nd amendment.

However, if Congress did pass such legislation, they would enforce the law and we must work through the legal or legislative system to change it. I personally want to extend my appreciation to these sheriffs for meeting with us. I also personally believe that they are all good men. But:

1. It has been said that for evil men to accomplish their purpose it is only necessary that good men should do nothing.

Reverend Charles F. Aked

2. Congress will pass legislation that is not supported by the majority of the people as (Affordable Health Care).

3. Congress will pass legislation without reading (or comprehending it) as Nancy Pelosi pointed out.

4. Marbury v. Madison cited by Sheriff Harrison’s attorney is the legislation that Thomas Jefferson warned us about:

You seem to consider the judges the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges … and their power [are] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and are not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves … . When the legislative or executive functionaries act unconstitutionally, they are responsible to the people in their elective capacity. The exemption of the judges from that is quite dangerous enough. I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves. …. — Letter to Mr. Jarvis, Sept, 1820.

5. Over 100 people stood outside the meeting room and in the parking lot trying to hear how our sheriffs will act under what we consider unjust laws. Obviously people want to know their position on this issue. I do not consider being told that our federal government will not act to take away our rights as a valid response based on what has already transpired. And I am not alone, based on firearm and ammunition sales.

We have vain and aspiring men in our highest offices and our sheriffs should be our best defense against this tyranny. But they do not see this danger. We need statesmen instead of politicians to save our country. We also need sheriffs who will stand up for the rule of law. If they cannot distinguish between the “rule of law” and the “rule of men”, where does that leave us?

Remember the words of Thomas Jefferson "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

  1. Our sheriffs cannot visualize a future where the enemy is domestic: I can. Will Congress pass legislation infringing on the 2nd amendment? I hope not but I have to ask this question: why is everyone buying firearms and ammunition? Or I should say why is every sentient person buying firearms and ammunition? I will be posting video of the entire meeting and I guarantee that you will not feel more secure after watching them.

  2. Some rural sheriffs view the federal government as an adversary, with gun ownership at the core of that belief.

  3. “Gun owner registration … bans on semi-automatic firearms … adoption of a UN gun control treaty — all of these issues could very well be decided over the next 24 hours,” states the GOA release.

  5. Thanks for the auspicious writeup. It in reality was once an enjoyment account. However, how could we keep up a correspondence?
