The Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner was stopped by police and nearly disarmed during a confusion on state grounds following interim senator and former agriculture commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith’s documented push to ban firearms on state capitol property.
‘”We, in my situation we had a reserve deputy who didn’t know what the law was. So he came up to me on state property and tried to search me and take my gun. And I said, no you’re not,” Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Andy Gipson told Big League Politics in an exclusive interview.
“I think it’s a matter of education, some law enforcement officials out there might not know what the law is. It’s a constant battle to stand up for our Second Amendment freedoms,” Gipson stated without condemning Hyde-Smith.
BLP reported: An appointed U.S. Senator from Mississippi who filled the seat of retired Sen. Thad Cochran and claims to be a Republican, once sought permission to randomly search fairgoers for guns during her tenure as State Commissioner of Agriculture.
“Your letter requests our office’s opinion on the following issues:” wrote the Mississippi Attorney General’s office in response to Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith’s request. “Can the MFC and the Department prohibit the carrying of weapons, concealed or not concealed, on the Mississippi State Fairgrounds Complex and at properties of the Department, including but not limited to the Mississippi Farmers’ Market and the Mississippi Agriculture & Forestry Museum, by posting signage prohibiting the carrying of a weapon?”
In case that request was denied, Hyde-Smith suggested random searches of patrons of the fairgrounds for weaponry. In the end, both requests were denied by the Attorney General.
“You also ask our opinion about other procedures that might be deemed to be random searches of individuals entering the gates at the State Fairgrounds Complex,” the letter says. The issue is only answerable by reference to federal law and cases construing the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
The letter was first obtained by Mississippi Conservative Daily.
The Fourth Amendment protects United States citizens against unlawful searches and seizures. In response to Hyde-Smith’s attempted gun grab, the State Attorney General’s office advised her that random searches and seizures were a matter of federal law too complex for them to assess.
Hyde-Smith is a former Democrat who once occupied a State Senate seat in Mississippi. She supported Hillary R. Clinton for president in 2008. During her tenure as a State Senator from 2010-2012, she switched her party affiliation from Democrat to Republican, knowing that it would benefit her in seeking national office in a red state.
But she has held onto her Democrat roots.
“Sean Parker, billionaire founder of Napster, the online file sharing service, and early investor in Facebook, has donated $250,000 to the Victory Fund PAC, aimed at getting Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) elected, according to Pro Publica.
Parker was a large Hillary Clinton donor, too. According to the New York Times, he “gave nearly $300,000 to a joint fund-raising committee for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and dozens of state Democratic parties.””
BLP Passage Ends.
Parker is known for his anti-Second Amendment stance, and for using his deep pockets to promote politicians who are weak on gun rights.
“He gave $250,000 to a gun control super political action committee led by former Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and more than that to help incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. — a supporter of gun rights — fend off a Tea Party challenger,” according to San Francisco Gate.
Considering Hyde-Smith has a long history of fighting against gun rights, it is fitting that Parker would support her.
Hyde-Smith faces State Senator Chris McDaniels (R-Ellisville), and two Democrats in a special non-partisan election on November 6.
“Senator Chris McDaniel has been a rock-solid supporter of the rights of gun owners, wrote Mississippi Conservative Daily. “Not only has he authored pro-gun legislation in the Mississippi Senate, he has never, not a single time, supported any law or regulation to curtail, in any way, the rights of Mississippians to keep and bear arms.”
Florida Sheriff Will Deputize Gun Owners if Rioters “Overwhelm” County
He’s not messing around.
A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.
Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.
“If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.
The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.
“If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”
Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
