    At least, the Second Amendment (AND Article II, Section 6 of the NM State Constitution) are SUPPOSED to deny government any authority or empowerment to infringe upon the individual right to own and carry weapons.

Politicians Need to Follow the Law, Too [ABQ Journal — Letter to the Editor]

Filed under: Media, Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:00 PM (20:00)

In today’s Journal, I read an letter to the editor by Quay County Attorney Warren F. Frost [1] saying that the 29 county sheriffs who prefer their constituents’ individual liberty over Bloomberg-financed victim disarmament dictats from Santa Fe should resign or face the possibility of removal should they refuse to follow those dictats.

Frost cites Article XX, Section 1 of the New Mexico State Constitution [2] as his rationale on this —

Every person elected or appointed to any office shall, before entering upon his duties, take and subscribe to an oath or affirmation that he will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution and laws of this state, and that he will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of his office to the best of his ability.

Where in that clause do public officials, elected or appointed, reserve the right to blow off parts of the State Constitution that they don’t care for, as if those parts don’t exist?

In this case, I’m referring to willful disregard for Article II, Section 6, as repeatedly displayed by Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham and the Legislature.

Article II, Section 6 reads as follows —

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms. (As amended November 2, 1971 and November 2, 1986.)

If the 29 of 33 county sheriffs who are opposed to the Bloomberg-financed victim disarmament campaign are subject to removal for refusing to follow its dictats, then why are Lujan-Grisham and her fellow victim disarmers in the Legislature not subject to removal for their refusal to abide by Article II, Section 6?

RED FLAG DEBATE

Look who’s blowing off the Constitution now

  IN (THE Jan.12) Journal, I read an letter to the editor by Quay County Attorney Warren F. Frost saying that the 29 county sheriffs who prefer their constituents’ individual liberty over Bloomberg-financed victim disarmament dictats from Santa Fe should resign or face the possibility of removal should they refuse to follow those dictats.

  Frost cites Article XX, Section 1 of the New Mexico State Constitution as his rationale on this.

  Article XX Miscellaneous, Section 1 Oath of officer reads that: “Every person elected or appointed to any office shall, before entering upon his duties, take and subscribe to an oath or affirmation that he will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution and laws of this state, and that he will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of his office to the best of his ability.

  Where in that clause do public officials, elected or appointed, reserve the right to blow off parts of the State Constitution that they don’t care for, as if those parts don’t exist?

  In this case, I’m referring to the willful disregard for Article II, Section 6, as repeatedly displayed by Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham and the Legislature.

  Article II, Section 6 reads as follows: “No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons.

  No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms. (As amended November 2, 1971 and November 2, 1986.)

  If the 29 of 33 county sheriffs who are opposed to the Bloomberg-financed victim disarmament campaign are subject to removal for refusing to follow its dictats, then why are Lujan Grisham and her fellow victim disarmers in the Legislature not subject to removal for their refusal to abide by Article II, Section 6?

    William Bradford — It is not up to Lujan-Grisham or the Legislature to decide which parts of the State or federal Constitutions to enforce or not. So it would be better for those who oppose civilian firearms ownership to FIRST have Article II, Section 6 removed from the State Constitution via the established amendment process, and the Second Amendment removed from the U.S. Constitution via the specified amendment process BEFORE attempting any victim disarmament legislation or regulations.

    Apparently, the DingleBerry Express isn’t anything but an overpriced, more dangerous remaking of the Central Ave Rapid Ride. Look at the DBE buses in the video — you’ll see “766 RED LINE” and “777 GREEN LINE” on the top front of them.

    If you want to run as an independent, you should probably change your voter registration to DTS (“Decline To State”) ASAP (as in this morning, 5 minutes after your county clerk’s office opens, and make sure you get paperwork from them documenting the change), as you have to run with whatever affiliation you have when the Governor’s Proclamation comes out (usually the last week of January).

    You might have to be part of a Lincoln Chafee presidential campaign, for one. Even if you’re not planning on running until 2022, some of the Tapeworm’s patsies might insist that you “make your bones” in 2020 before being considered for anything in 2022.

    I saw how the LNC refused to even censure Mr Bill the Original Weldist after

    1. his 3 August 2016 interview on Revolt TV (“take a pin out of an AR-15 and it becomes full auto”),

    2. his 29 August 2016 interview with Yahoo! News (where he said “I’ve always supported the individual mandate” of Obamacare),

      https://youtu.be/MqcoF9oqW-w?t=420

    3. then he went on the Rachel Maddow show where he was “vouching” for Hillary Clinton (“because somebody besides the DNC should speak up for her”),

      https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Weld+Maddow+Clinton+2016

    4. how in September 2016, he donated 400 bucks to New Hampshire Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Sununu, while not donating a penny to Max Abramson, the Libertarian running against Sununu.
