Chicago Democrat City Govt. Supports Second Amendment!. Ashe County Does NOT!

Rahm Emanuel's Check to Second Amendment Foundation



Well, they didn't actually SUPPORT it on a VOLUNTARY basis....but after the Court Of Appeals found that they had violated the Second Amendment Rights of Chicago citizens and ordered them to pay the Second Amendment Foundation they eventually wrote the check pictured above.

More news on the original Court decision can be found by clicking here!

In local news, according to WATA's very fine web siteGoBlueRidge . net , Ashe county commissioners have followed the trend set by Blowing Rock and Boone to ban handguns in certain county recreational facilities.
Commissioner Gerald Price made a motion to NOT institute a ban in Ashe County parks....

“There will come a day, a point in time, when that frog is cooked, and all our rights and all our freedoms and all our liberties are going to be gone, folks,” comments made by Ashe County Commissioner, Gerald Price, in support of a motion he had made to not ban the carrying of concealed weapons on county property.

According to the article on GoBlueRidge.com, 16 of the 19 people speaking were against any county ordered gun bans. No matter, the county commissioners voted 3 to 2 to impose restrictions on gun owners.

Hurry up November!

I am not surprised at this happening in Blowing Rock, but Ashe County? The State Senators who failed to put language into the Parks Bill should be voted out in November. RINOs like the Republican Speaker need to be voted out. Like most RINOs, they sell out just like a Democrat. This is why I won't vote for Romney.

How is it that the Constitution can be abridged so easily?

I would have thought that Ashe county would be the last one to give in to the anti gun crowd. We will remember this come election time.

As I understnad it, there is already work underway to remove the amendment that has caused the inconstancy of local laws of which Senator Soucek made reference. The intent of the Castle Doctrine was to make laws uniform throughout the state, not do the opposite (as the ill founded amendment did).

There is a pretty good article in the Ashe County edition of Mountain Times...

Three Ashe County commissioners voted in favor of the ban...William Sands, Judith Poe and Larry Rhodes. Of the three, only Rhodes is up for reelection this year.

Apparently those in favor of the ban are under the impression that certain people would have no compunction shooting innocent people in a public park, but WOULD respect the law as it pertains to carrying a weapon in the park.

The logic escapes me. I would have to believe that people, such as the ones who shot up Va Tech; Columbine, etc, would not be (and certainly weren't in the above examples) prevented from doing so because weapons were banned in those areas!

Will the residents of Ashe County relieve these traitors of their posts during the next election? Or will they forget in a couple of weeks as is the case with a majority of Americans?

Neither Boone nor Blowing Rock is technically a done deal.

Blowing Rock had to have a second reading with no public comment so it is very likely they will pass their safe areas for criminals.

Boone does not even have a draft ordinance yet. They will probably rubber stamp whatever their attorney produces unless they want it more restrictive.
