I am asking all my viewers to help support Police Chief Mark Kessler in his 2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance that he will be presenting at 7PM on January 24, 2013, at the Gilberton Borough Council meeting, located at 2710 Main Street, Mahanoy Plain, PA.
Concerned about future federal and state legislation that infringes on the Second Amendment, Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler drafted a proposed 2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance. The text of the proposed Ordinance is below.
I am asking everyone to support Chief Kessler by either attending the meeting or by sending a letter or email to Borough informing them of your desire that they enact Chief Kessler’s Ordinance. Some proposed language for your email, fax or letter is directly below. Please do your part to support Chief Kessler, the 2nd Amendment and Article I, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution.
Dear Council Members:
I am calling/writing today to ask you to please support and enact the proposed 2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance of Police Chief Mark Kessler. The federal government, based on Vice President Biden’s comments, appears intent on violating our Second Amendment, as well as, Article 1, Section 21, of the Pennsylvania Constitution. The 10th Amendment specifically provides that the states may nullify unconstitutional acts of the Federal Government and many states have passed nullification acts, such a Firearms Freedom Acts – see, http://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2010/02/05/raising-the-bar-for-nullification/ as one of many examples.
I feel it is incumbent upon our states and cities to take action to protect communities from illegal firearm seizure and unconstitutional laws that seek to limit and restrict law-abiding citizens from owning, purchasing and possessing firearms. The seizure and denial of firearms to law-abiding citizens is unconstitutional based on the plain language of the 2nd Amendment. Our forefathers fought the English, almost to their demise, for the freedoms that so many now take for granted. I am requesting that you show your American Patriotism and support our 2nd Amendment. If no action is taken, it will only be a matter of time before the remaining Amendments are also denied to the People.
I hope you will stand with the vast majority of Americans that want our Constitutional protections enforced and adhered to by the Federal and State Governments.
Please pass the 2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance as soon as possible. A majority of your constituents support this effort.
