The Texas Director of Operations for Gun Owners of America Teresa Beckmeyer reported on the Texas border county of Presidio declaring itself a Second Amendment sanctuary on Wednesday July 10, 2019.
At the Commissioner’s Court, over sixty citizens presented this resolution to a standing room crowd.
Six individuals spoke out in favor of this pro-gun resolution. No one came out in opposition.
The last speaker asked for a show of hands of those in support of this resolution. All those present raised their hands and shouted “Hear, hear!”
In Presidio County, having gun rights is a matter of basic survival for those living close to the Southern border. Beckmeyer noted this:
Some of those speaking were rancher’s wives who told of instances where they had encountered illegal aliens on their property and that without a weapon, they would have not been able to protect themselves should the need have presented itself.
Additionally, law enforcement is not very reliable in this area.
In this sparsely populated part of Texas, it can take law enforcement 45 minutes to an hour to reach the vicinity of a 911 call.
Other speakers noted how the federal government has overreached on gun rights and re-iterated that they have a constitutional right to defend themselves. No government, federal or state, can infringe on that.
The local sheriff also spoke before the court and crowd. Like other sheriffs across the country, he pledged his support for Presidio county citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.
After much discussion, the commissioners present at this gathering voiced their approval for the Second Amendment and the need to defend it at all times.
When the final vote came, all three commissioners and the judge in attendance voted for the resolution.
The gun rights sanctuary movement is arguably one of the fastest-growing nullification campaigns taking place in the nation.
When state governments fail to uphold gun rights, local entities must take matters into their own hands.
Bronx Bobblehead AOC Believes that the Current Budget Cut to NYPD is Not Enough
On June 30, 2020, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that New York City’s budget cuts to the police department were not sufficiently adequate, declaring that “defunding police means defunding police.”
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman remarked in a statement.
The defund the police meme has caused some debate in Democrat circles. Some Democrats believe that the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and is only a slogan for police reforms.
“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”
On June 30, the New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio came to a deal to slash $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget.
“We’re acting on that call for justice. I believe it is our mission to redistribute resources to those who need them the most,” de Blasio stated, “This is real redistribution.”
Activists that agree with AOC’s radical anti-cop reforms said they won’t put up with any plan that merely reallocates money and does nothing to substantially gut police departments.
“No funny math. No budget musical chairs,” radical anti-law enforcement activists said in a letter on June 30 to the mayor and council. “We’ll know if you fought for our communities or whether you will let the NYPD continue to be treated as if they’re above the law, even in the budget.”
New York City is currently suffering from a $9 billion shortfall in revenue due to the Wuhan virus shutdowns.
Defunding the police will only make New York City less secure and leave New Yorkers with virtually no options left for security.
