Last night, at approximately 7:08 PM, the Council Members for the Borough of Gilberton, PA, unanimously voted in support of enacting Police Chief Mark Kessler’s proposed 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution. A signed and sealed copy of the Resolution is available here – Gilberton 2A Preservation Act.
The Resolution provides, “All federal, state or local acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms, firearms accessories or ammunition are a violation of the 2nd Amendment along with Article I, section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution and in violation of this resolution.”
It continues on, “The Council of the Borough of Gilberton within the state of Pennsylvania recognizes that all Federal, State or Local acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations – past, present or future – in violation of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution and/or Section 21 of the Constitution of Pennsylvania are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and/or Constitution of Pennsylvania and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratified, and are hereby declared to be invalid within Gilberton Borough and all of its boundaries…and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in the Borough of Gilberton.”
I would encourage all of our viewers and clients to let the Gilberton Council know that you appreciate its decision to support the Constitution! Hopefully, its enactment of this Resolution will be the starting point for a national discussion on how legislative and judicial activists believe they can limit a Constitutional Right, without a formal Constitutional Amendment.
