I Brandon LaBar have created this petition because I would like to avoid the erosion of our civil liberties. I believe that we have enough existing gun laws and restrictions on our current right to own a firearm.
Chicago and California have some of the tightest regulations and gun laws, however that does not stop criminals from breaking the law. This petition is to officially declare schoolcraft county a 2A sanctuary. Any law that does not comply with the United States constitution is NULL AND VOID Marbury vs Madison 1803. Here is what I propose.
1. No new gun laws or restrictions of any kind shall be infringed upon furthermore. The people must be sufficient to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government, even if politicians pass new laws.
2. Do not enforce magazine bans ammo restrictions or gun free zones. Criminals do not follow laws as it has been proven time and time again.
3. Do not enforce “red flag” gun laws such as proposed “dangerous people here say” or he said she said, we must maintain the American way with our due process and avoid Orwellian laws.
All law enforcement whether it be sheriff or Michigan police, have taken an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States. They did not take an oath to POLITICIANS AND CORRUPT TYRANIC LAWS. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution reads: "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, Article l, 5 6 of the Michigan Constitution reads: "Every person has a right to keep and bear arms for the defense of himself and the state."; and,
WHEREAS, the People of this county and citizens as well as people signing this petition are concerned that introduced legislation in this session or future sessions, if passed, could infringe upon rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article l, 5 6 of the Michigan Constitution; and,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of Commissioners in schoolcraft county and or the sheriff declare Schoolcraft county a Second Amendment Sanctuary County and fully affirms its support of the rights ensured and protected by the constitutions of the United States and Michigan, including the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms; and,
BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED, that the Board urges the Michigan Legislature, the United States Congress, and other agencies of State and Federal government to vigilantly preserve and protect those rights by rejecting any provision, law, or regulation that may infringe, have the tendency to infringe, or place any additional burdens on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms; and
BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED, that the Board supports the enactment of Michigan as a 2 nd Amendment Sanctuary state; and,
BE IT, FURTHER, RESOLVED, that the Board directs its staff to forward a copy of this resolution to the County's elected representatives in the Michigan Legislature and the United States Congress and to the Governor of Michigan.
Duly passed this day of 2020
