PA county seeks to preserve 2nd amendment

Pennsylvania county makes new federal gun laws “unenforceable”

Red Alert Politics

February 28, 2013

Worried about the federal government imposing overly-restrictive new gun laws? One Pennsylvania county is saying, “Not in our backyard!”

Susquehanna County commissioners have passed a resolution to fully protect the Second Amendment from any federal laws infringing upon it, as reported by The Times-Tribune.

The resolution states that that “any federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that in any way infringes on our Second Amendment rights by attempting to reduce the private ownership of any firearm, magazine or ammunition shall be unenforceable in Susquehanna County.”

Republican Commissioner Michael Giangrieco, who proposed the resolution, admitted that the resolution was mostly ceremonial, but said it was an important message to send in response to harsher New York gun laws and laws currently being proposed in Pennsylvania.

The County has seen a sharp increase in gun permit applications since the Sandy Hook shooting, with about 175 in the first three weeks of January, already outpacing the 2012 monthly average of 133.

    I still can’t put a like your articles, but apparently I have something called clickjacking protection which I have no idea where it came. Anyway, I like your article.

    I’m glad to see at least one county in PA trying to protect their gun rights from the feds. I hope more do the same. I know in Utah, they have pretty much told the Feds, if you come in here the sheriffs will fight you.

    Bull, good post! I must say I’m rather surprised this is happening up north in PA. Orrr; perhaps I’m still eat up with the old, southern thinking of “those damn Yankee’s!” 🙂

    I’ve actually heard several stories from all over the south of sheriffs stating they will refuse any mandate to confiscate guns from their town people. And Texas…shit…my redneck ass wouldn’t go there trying to take their guns! I’m just crazy as a loon, not stupid!

    I believe we’ll see more and more of this arise across our nation when more local law enforcement believes King Sumbitch is really trying to accomplish this treason.

      Dave, yea its encouraging. Actually there are some good counties in Pa. Just that the Obamaholics have held them hostage. I’ll take Bible thumping gun clingers over Obamaholics any day…twice on Sunday. 🙂

    Good for them. Too bad our idiotic sheriff is an Obama buttboy,and most likely will go along with whatever DC decides to try. Constitutional or not.

      I share your sympathies, Clyde. Talk about people being trigger happy, they all ran to support as much gun control as they could steal. We all know who they are now.

    Good for Pa!

    Hey BR: off topic–I dont ‘like’ Iran, I just believe that Iran takes eyes off Obama and his idiots.


    • bullright says:

      MJ: glad to see someone on the ball… taking preemptive action.

      I understand your concerns. I don’t think he’s all that serious about Iran anyway. There’s lots of hot air there. But what harm he can do in undercutting Israel is another topic.
