Second Amendment Preservation Resolution

Local Tennesseans Standing Up

Madison County in West Tennessee has taken a huge step in stating that they support the Second Amendment of the Constitution, by passing the ‘Second Amendment Preservation Resolution’ in a meeting this week.

Commissioner Doug Stephenson stated,

“Send a message to the state and the federal government of where we stand as a county and as a body.”

Commissioner Adrian Eddleman said that he took an oath to defend the constitution.

The measure passed even with six people voting no on it (Katie Brantley, Claudell Brown, Aaron Ellison, William Martin, Luther Mercer, and James Pearson). Assuming that Commissioner Eddleman’s was speaking of his Commissioner’s oath (I can’t seem to find the exact text of that oath for Madison County), then what were these six people swearing to?

Only one (Pearson), as far as I can find, had an excuse:

“I believe any resolution that opposes or may oppose any decision made by the federal government as it relates to the Second Amendment, Constitution, Bill of Rights is unconstitutional in itself for that reason I voted against it.”

He added this idiotic statement:

“I believe state and local government should line up with the decisions of the federal government rather than take opposing positions.”

Accountability of Elected Officials

As a citizen of Madison County, shouldn’t you write and call them to ask exactly what their problem is with honoring their promises and perhaps educate them to what their duties truly are. I would suggest that you send that moron packing in the next election. Or do you believe that the Federal Government should be allowed to dictate what you do, no matter what the Constitution says or what state and local legislation expresses?

The resolution specifically states, “To prevent federal infringement on the right to keep and bear arms; nullifying all federal acts in violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.”

And that the commissioners are to “reject and nullify the enforcement of any federal acts, laws, executive orders, rules or regulations in violation of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee.”

The resolution seeks to quantify the sheriff’s duties regarding the Second Amendment. Madison County sheriff David Woolfork had this to say:  “I certainly support the Second Amendment and defend the Constitution of Tennessee,” and continued, “I will uphold the oath I have taken five times.”

Text of the resolution:

A resolution, which shall be known and may be cited as the “Second Amendment Preservation Resolution.”  To prevent federal infringement on the right to keep and bear arms; nullifying all federal acts in violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Whereas, the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed,” and

Whereas, all federal acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment, and

Whereas, the Madison County Board of Commissioners declares that all federal acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations – past, present or future – in violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers; and are hereby declared to be invalid in this county, shall not be recognized by this county, are specifically rejected by this county, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this county, and

Whereas, the State of Tennessee has the power given to it by the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and the duty to protect its citizens and prevent infringement of any unconstitutional federal acts, laws, executive orders, rules or regulations, and

Whereas, we believe it is the duty of the Sheriff of each County in Tennessee to take all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of any federal acts, laws, orders, rules, or regulations in violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and

Now, therefore be it resolved that the Madison County Board of Commissioners hereby supports and request the legislature of the State of Tennessee adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to reject and nullify the enforcement of any federal acts, laws, executive orders, rules or regulations in violation of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee.

Be it further resolved, that we call upon the State of Tennessee to adopt and enact any and all measures which would clarify the Sheriff’s duty and responsibility to defend the citizens of the State of Tennessee against infringement by the federal government.   Furthermore, we hereby ask the Sheriffs of the State of Tennessee to act on behalf of the citizens to defend them against infringements upon their rights and to hold the federal government to the limitations provided under the Constitution.

Be it further resolved that this body directs the office of the County Executive/Mayor to provide a copy of this resolution to all Tennessee counties and requests the Legislature to join in passing this resolution and forwarding it to their state delegations.

      The list reflects how al-Quida in the Maghbreb anticipated a military intervention that would make use of drones, as the war on common sense probes new areas of confusion from the ground to the air.
