    Default Utah Sherriffs Prepared to "Trade Our Lives" to Protect 2nd Amendment

    Welcome to the Official Website of the Utah Sheriffs’ Association

    http://www.utahsheriffs.org/USA-Home...ent Letter.pdf


    The Honorable Barack Obama
    President of the United States of America
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
    Washington, DC 20500

    Dear President Obama:

    We, the elected sheriffs of Utah, like so many of our fellow Americans, are literally heartbroken for the loved ones of the murdered victims in Connecticut. As Utahans, we are not strangers to this kind of carnage—one of the latest being the 2007 Trolley Square murders wherein nine innocents were gunned down—five losing their lives.

    We also recognize the scores of other recent domestic massacres, which have decimated countless honorable lives. As Americans, we value the sanctity of life. Furthermore, similar to our inspired Founders, we acknowledge our subservience to a higher power.

    With the number of mass shootings America has endured, it is easy to demonize firearms; it is also foolish and prejudiced. Firearms are nothing more than instruments, valuable and potentially dangerous, but instruments nonetheless. Malevolent souls, like the criminals who commit mass murders, will always exploit valuable instruments in the pursuit of evil. As professional peace officers, if we understand nothing else, we understand this: lawful violence must sometimes be employed to deter and stop criminal violence. Consequently, the citizenry must continue its ability to keep and bear arms, including arms that adequately protect them from all types of illegality.

    As your administration and Congress continue to grapple with the complex issue of firearm regulations, we pray that the Almighty will guide the People’s Representatives collectively. For that reason, it is imperative this discussion be had in Congress, not silenced unilaterally by executive orders. As you deliberate, please remember the Founders of this great nation created the Constitution, and its accompanying Bill of Rights, in an effort to protect citizens from all forms of tyrannical subjugation.

    We respect the Office of the President of the United States of America.

    But, make no mistake,


    as the duly-elected sheriffs of our respective counties,
    we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution.

    No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents
    and take from them what the Bill of Rights
    —in particular Amendment II—
    has given them.


    We, like you,
    swore a solemn oath to protect and defend
    the Constitution of the United States,
    and we are prepared to trade our lives
    for the preservation of its traditional interpretation.

    It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen
    to set brush fires in peoples minds! Revolution is Action upon Revelation!

    The small green parakeet, Tito, was flung helplessly from the cage, landing on the floor. When a girl screamed, the officer sneerd:
    "F*** THE BIRD !!!"
    ...and stomped on it with his jackboot. READ MORE: http://www.policestateusa.com/2013/n...lugo-parakeet/

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I wish they would run these things past me prior to sending. Small errors can make large differences in meaning. The devil is indeed to be found in the details, especially with the sorts of scoundrels to which such missives are directed. They are players of words first and foremost and cannot, therefore, be taken casually on that basis. This is particularly true because in their world, words put guns into motion.

    ignominia et contemptum tyrannis

    Habeo excelsum artem; afflixerim cum crudelitate illis qui laedas me

    Shelley's thinly veiled warning to tyrants:

    The monster saw my determination in my face and gnashed his teeth in the impotence of anger. "Shall each man," cried he, "find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn. Man! You may hate, but beware! Your hours will pass in dread and misery, and soon the bolt will fall which must ravish from you your happiness forever. Are you to be happy while I grovel in the intensity of my wretchedness? You can blast my other passions, but revenge remains--revenge, henceforth dearer than light or food! I may die, but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes on your misery. Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful. I will watch with the wiliness of a snake, that I may sting with its venom. Man, you shall repent of the injuries you inflict.”

    Is this the same batch of sheriffs who takes federal grants and serves drug warrants for the feds?

    The same group who drives cars and APC's paid for with federal money?

    The same group who is threatening to use weapons and ammunition paid for with federal tax dollars to fight just one instance of federal government overreach?

    Well I wish them the best of luck.

    And I sincerely hope they pull their heads out and pay attention to other areas of federal misbehavior..

    Yes, but at this point all I want is a peaceful secession. We can worry about those "details" after we settle that primary business.

    I appreciate their intent, but the 2nd amendment doesn't give me a damn thing I already didn't have.
