New legislation would fire sheriffs who disobey federal gun restrictions

gun-ban

Move over – there might be a new sheriff in town if you don’t go along with federal gun control mandates, says new state legislation. The 380 sheriffs who have vowed to defend the constitutional right to bear arms may now be at risk to lose their jobs.

Many state legislatures are now pushing to passing measures that would remove any sheriff found defying federal law.

In the Texas state legislature, Dallas Democratic Representative Yvonne Davis introduced a measure that would fire any aw enforcement officer who disobeys state or federal orders.

And it gets worse.

The bill even calls for the removal of any  law enforcement officer who just promises — either on paper or just verbally — not to enforce any federal gun control mandates that the federal government passes.

“Beware because once something like this is introduced in one state, it will be followed very quickly in several other states,” one gun lobbyist told the Washington Examiner.

But while some state legislators are working with the federal government to push gun control, others are still fighting against it.The Senate gun bill is expected to be introduced when the Senate reconvenes after the Easter recess.

The Idaho state legislature is working toward passing legislation that would actually prohibit state and local police from enforcing any gun control mandates. State legislatures in Montana, Wyoming, Texas and Virginia are also proposing legislation that would block any new federal gun restrictions.

As for Texas, Gov. Rick Perry has been calling all gun owners and companies to move to the longhorn state, but if this new legislation passes he may have a problem.

If your guns aren’t even safe in Texas anymore, you might want to keep on going to Mexico.

    Love this crap Obama sets back allows the entire world dictate his next move has not the balls to say a word about Blacks killing blacks in his city not to mention all the black gang bangers thats fine don’t send law enforcement after them.. He turns a blind eye tells his DOJ to not bother drug users and such thats fine and as for the Illegal aliens invading this country he allows them to be released buy the hundreds from ICE holding cells to run amuck through what ever street they choose but Sheriff’s can’t touch them .. But I want the legal gun owners and law abiding citizens to have their rights stripped and I want the guns NOW !
    This half baked SOB can not leave office soon enough to suit me .. Yesterday was to late.. 4 yrs ago would have been perfect.. This sonuvabitch Obama will not stop until he cause a full out revolution in this country he wants a uprising I think hell he is the king of class warfare ..

      why did you vote for non-white immigration? 90% vote for liberals. this is not an ideological battle of left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Socialism vs liberty. This is ethnic warfare against white people.

      Why are hostile globalist elite defending Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but ravaging white majority Europe/North America into a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

      Why do gullible Whites kowtow to murderous Jewish/Crypto-Jewish bolshevik commissars, who butcher White soldiers in bankrupting wars, confiscate White people’s guns, infiltrate & subvert our banks & spying agencies, indoctrinate White children in academia/mass media, & plunder White jobs, wages?

      East Asia is 99% yellow. Africa is 99% Black. West Asia is 99% Brown. But 3rd world colonizers are annihilating Whites, just as Chinese colonizers are annihilating Tibet. Genocidal Jewish Bolshevik commissars murdered 100 million White European Christians in Soviet Gulags from 1917-1991.

      “Native” Americans are not native. They invaded from East Asia. Not just Whites, but Muslims, Jews, China, India, Mayans, Africans all are guilty of slavery, genocide, imperialism. Whites were victims of Islamic, Jewish, African imperialism, genocide, slavery.

      Gullible Whites should reject subversive Jewish ideologies – libertarianism, feminism, liberalism, socialism, & reject hostile slanders of racism, collectivism.

      Love to all humanity, but if White people wish to survive, they must unite & organize to protect & advance their families, their fertility, their interests. Reading list:

        That is the most obnoxious, blatantly anti-Semitic blather I have yet to hear. So much so that it rivals the unabashed crap that is foisted upon the American public by the Obama Administration.

        Your comments are discriminatory at the very least and have the ring of the same sentiments expressed in 1930’s in Germany and have no place in honest public discourse.

        I am not a Jew and *I* find them offensive

        1. Curtis says:

          I should clarify that, “I am not a Jew and I find your comments offensive”.

        2. Marikya says:

          Ultra offensive, divisive to the hilt instead of unifying in the interest of peace and acceptance.

    3. jimpeel says:

      Why did it take the slaughter of 20 White children, en masse to get this guy’s attention while Black kids are being mowed down in his home town 1 or 2 at a time? Is it that the slaughter of Black kids is merely collateral damage that are acceptable losses?

      1. Curtis says:

        Because, contrary to the view they want the public to hold, the Liberal Progressive organization is the most racist, discriminatory, divisive, evasive and elitist group of people around.

        They look down their noses at those who live in the ghettos, exist on welfare – until, that is, it is time to win an election. They see minorities, immigrants and such as a means to an end but they have no real intention of improving their lives. If they did, many, if not most, would see through the smoke and mirrors and cast the monkey from off their back.

        1. Gregory Romeu says:

          You are on target with the problem, however as a solution, we as a people face is getting this EXACT MESSAGE to those that are directly affected.

          1. Curtis says:

            Then we need to quit abdicating that message thus allowing the Libertards to establish the “truth”. We, as a group of conservatives, need to sponsor soup kitchen days. Be present on the street corners handing out bottles of water and hamburgers or hot dogs.

            We need to get the News Media out there to see it. Make some t-shirts that say something like “Conservatives helping minorities, combating Liberal propaganda” or something.

        2. ckehoss says:

          playing into a person’s fears with your rhetorical belief system only adds problems for yourself and your party. I believe that all states and all races are suffering from the most elitist group of all, the NRA. Instead of respect and tolerance, they teach intolerance and disrespect. Very very damaging to the future of your position because like it or not, you are not the most intelligent rat in the pack. I am republican in all aspects except for the mentality to goes with being the top of the food chain. That is something that I am saving for the election process. Then and only then, does one’s thoughts and beliefs get their just reward. So stop talking like you are God, please, this only makes you sound so very evil.

          1. Gregory Romeu says:

            Tell me something, as a matter of fact, tell ALL OF US on this forum, just what solutions YOU have provided for these issues? Just name one. What good are you doing other than using this forum to try to put yourself on some sort of virtual pedeastal? As another matter.. What have you ever done to solve ANY of our nation’s woes??

          2. ckehoss says:

            “tell ALL OF US on this forum, just what solutions YOU have provided for these issues? Just name one”

            who named you God? I am friends with our local congressman so I talk all the time. My solution has been submitted, end of story Greg.

          3. Gregory Romeu says:

            You never explained anything past the point that you are a socialite. WHAT HAVE YOU ACCOMPLISHED for your country? What are you DOING to provide SOLUTIONS for our country’s problems? Why are you even on this forum other than to brag about YOU and WHO you know? I have never seen where THAT relates to solving ANYTHING in this nation.

          4. ckehoss says:

            Look, you little control freak, I have had enough of your demanding little banter. Tyrants like you are as ugly as the constitution is old. All you have submitted to everyone in this blog is “read your state constitution” and very little listening coming from your butt breath mouth. You think that your advice makes you an important source of factual content and I have 200 acres in Belize to sell. LOL Someone once asked me how to find the derelicts that pose a danger to our 1st Amendment and I told them to give me a blog like this one and watch the little twerps come out. Thanks for making my point.

          5. Gregory Romeu says:

            Just as I suspected. The exact M.O. of a progressive liberal. Cant answer a direct question with any type of truthful answer and when backed into a corner you start using name-calling as a weapon. Boo-Hoo little girl. The questions I gave you still remaion unanswered and to date I do not see a single action on your part where you have done ANYTHING for your country.

          6. ckehoss says:

            I, like the others, refuse to answer to you. I know this is a big surprise but you carry no weight here.

          7. Gregory Romeu says:

            As if you do Chrystal? Wy dont you just leave out of this forum and let us handle matters, being that you are only here to throw pirssy-fits over your attitude.

            Youre obviously not doing anything to provide solutions or give anything for the sake of this nation, so why don’t you just leave and go back to selling your cheap costume jewelry on E-bay and leave the nations security issues to those of us that have served in the armed forces and have actually taken an oath that we are so willing to take to our graves in doing so?

            i mean, the Marine Corps doesn’t provide mirrors and make-up anyway and youd just end up breaking a nail if you ever had to jump into a foxhole and lock-n-load a rifle anyway… So, go! Shoo! You havent a thing to offer for the nations woes but intestinal gas!

          15. Bo says:

            This issue on gun control has really divided this country and removed a lot of respect from many of our law makers. When you have complete idiots on this issues I.e., senator Fienstien and the woman congress person from Colorado have no business making decisions as important as these. Then when others disagree they take other actions to push thier agendas such as firing police that do not agree or buy up large quantities of ammo to create shortages, tax guns and parts so they are to expensive for most Americans. This is just wrong. These idiots need to be voted out of office and do something else in life that better suits them and doesn’t affect us. These people aren’t even cape able of having an unbias debate. It’s thier way or the highway. I say highway. Vote these idiots out of office. There should not even be a debate on our second admendment rights. These rights should not be infringed. It’s practily been destroyed.

          16. Bo says:

            This reply is to no one in peticular just a comment. I’m not sure who the individual was that was on one of the best videos to congress but he was amazing correct. I’m getting so sick of our governments corrupt actions and around about ways to purposely affect our second admendment rights is beyond corrupt. He is absolutely right there should have never been any obstructions placed on our rights. That admendment is for the people to keep the government in check, not for the government to control us. I fought for this country as did 2 of my sons, but if our second admendment rights are violated any further my sons or I will never fight for this country, but fight to give this country back to its people.

          17. Gregory Romeu says:

            Nope! You’re full of crap… Go back and re-read all of YOUR comments from the beginning.

          18. ckehoss says:

            there you go again, wanting me to kiss your ring. Uhm I would have like to insult you, but the sad truth is that you wouldn’t understand me

    4. Pat says:

      That is the reason he has been stockpiling all those hollow shell bullets, to use on the citizens of this Country to keep you in line if you don’t do as he says. Dictator is what he is….

      1. Randy says:

        Hollow point is what they are called, the military is required to use full metal jacket bullets for warfare, the Department of Homeland Security apparently doesn’t have to follow the rules of conventional warfare. (the hollow point will inflict more damage, larger wound cavity more internal damage, as if any bullet is less lethal)

    5. Howard Taber says:

      Obviously this individual, whatever it is, is unaware that County Sheriffs are elected by We The People in the counties that we live in. Probably just one of many subjects of which she is ignorant.

      1. Gregory Romeu says:

        It stuns me to see how ignorant people are that will babble on and on with these issues and never bother to RESEARCH these matters!

    6. auhunter says:

      There is only one problem with “all this crap”. An elected Sheriff can NOT be fired, not by the County, the State, or the Fed’s. He can only be removed from office by the voters who put him there, by recall election. He is the Supreme Law of the Land within his jurisdiction, and as long as he abides by his Oath and does not violate the provisions of his State’s Constitution and the Constitution of the United States, there are no grounds for his recall. Ask Sheriff Arpaio, from Arizona, Everyone and his brother has been trying to get him fired and they haven’t been able to do it yet. Of course if he is involved in Criminal activity, he can be prosecuted, but even then he is still the Sheriff, until the voters formally recall him or he is replaced by Special Election. Appointed Sheriff’s on the other hand can be fired by whoever appointed them, usually the Governor of the State. If the citizen’s of a state ceded that power to the Governor, it was a stupid move on their part, as he is the only man in the state, who really has your best interests at heart, and can truly protect you and your rights.

      1. Gregory Romeu says:

        Perhaps you need to review what recently took place in the State of Delaware when then Vice President Biden removed the powers of arrest from the three county Sheriff’s of that state.

        1. Curtis says:

          Vice President Biden has no authority to do anything. He can’t even tie his own shoes without permission from Obutthead.

          1. Gregory Romeu says:

            Well smartass, then why dont you just CALL Sheriff Jeffrey Christopher and ask him yourself? 302-542-1437?

          2. Gregory Romeu says:

            DID YOU CALL THE SHERIFF AND SPEAK WITH HIM?

          3. Gregory Romeu says:

            Go back and read what I wrote.

        2. Curtis says:

          Sorry you took offense. What I mean to say is that the Vice President has absolutely no Constitutional Authority, outside of the Senate floor, unless and until he/she moves into the President’s slot.

          If the Sheriffs in question actually headed anything Biden told them, then shame on them for not knowing better.

          I think it has been a long time since public education (now THERE’S and oxymoron) actually taught our young people anything about the Constitution. If we did teach them, there is no way Biden or Obutt

          1. Gregory Romeu says:

            ??? I didnt pontificate on this matter, I stated fact. perhaps you too should contact Sheriff Christopher directly and inquire on your own time?

      Amen. Thank you for your comment. You said it exactly as the ‘moral American’ would say.

    8. Joyce Smith says:

      That is why the DHS is stocking up on all the ammo and military equipment. That is what Osama, oops, I mean Obama is wanting. I also really believe that that is the reason for letting all the illegals out. They and other criminals are the only ones who will fight on his side. I think the military will stand with Americans.

    I know there is a federal law requiring the President to submit an annual budget that one is in violation also .. He said April 10th they will have his 1st and today only budget.. Now if its golf to play or vacation to take or money to piss away he’ll be on that wagon 1st.

            …what if the 1st amendment was attacked so vehemently, would you want a 2nd to back it up? just asking.

          2. ckehoss says:

            no one is attacking the constitution, it is not 1797 and the British are not coming. I pack a Glock but do not believe that our teachers should be armed against a Bushmaster, bomb, tank, etc etc etc

          3. vanguard7 says:

            Chehoss, it’s not so much a matter of going up against a bushmaster, tank, bomb, etc. as an armed teacher or security personnel in public schools (or student in a college setting). It’s more about allowing for the opportunity to do so if such a need arises and letting it be known that a particular school allows for concealed carry while not divulging the individuals authorized to do so. It’s called “deterrence”. As long as a would-be sociopath knows that he/she may encounter armed resistance in a public school setting if they were of the mind to commit a mass shooting and, at the same time, not know who would likely be the one(s) armed to stop such an attack that sociopath would be much less likely to carry out any plan of murder.

            As for your comment that “the constitution is not under attack….”, you couldn’t be further from the truth. The mere fact that the gun control issue is taking place in this country and that it has been elevated to the level it has proves our constitution is under attack. There have already been bills passed (also) and implemented that restrict and even forbid our 1st amendment rights. An executive order was recently signed that prohibits any speech that is not favorable to Obama and/or his leadership while in the presence of any Secret Service personnel. This was just reported a few days ago. And, frankly, if we lose our 2nd Amendment rights we will undoubtedly lose our 1st Amendment rights soon afterwards right along with our 4th Amendment rights and others as this Marxist government deems necessary in order to bring the masses under their total and absolute control.

            The bottom line is that our Constitution IS under attack by this Usurper in Chief and his fellow Progressive Elitists (a.k.a. Socialists) such as Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, Boxer, et al and the main obstacle for them in trying to change it or do away with it altogether is the 2nd Amendment because an armed public is not likely to become enslaved to Totalitarism. And the track record of states who have endorsed and adopted laws allowing for it’s citizens to arm themselves have clearly demonstrated a correlation between allowing for carry permits and a reduction in violent crimes. If that can be done within a state then it stands to reason that permitting a teacher/student, who has been trained and legally authorized to carry, to carry within the property lines of a public school would have the same correlation. Incidentally, research I did for a Criminal Justice class last year also revealed interviews with inmates of different correctional facilities around the nation and one thing each revealed was that most of them will avoid states they know to endorse and allow for legal concealed/open carry of guns and that they prefer to locate to states/cities where the general population are not allowed to have guns much less carry them on ther person. Chicago and New York City were often mentioned as areas preferred by felons to relocate to because of the strong anti-gun cultures in each of those locales. California was also mentioned as a popular destination for felons who wish to continue with their dishonest way of life while having the least amount of armed resistence by any prospective neighborhood.

    2. Gregory Romeu says:

      Then READ YOUR STATE’s CONSTITUTION and APPLY THE POWERS YOU AS A CITIZEN HAVE TO REMOVE THEM!

  5. Boz says:

    But it’s ok for ICE, INS, DHS, TSA, and 0bama to pick and choose which laws that they will enforce or not enforce, such as when the State of Arizona calls them and says “we’ve got illegals detained here, come and get them”, but they are then told “No” by these agencies and the Number-One Illegal-In-Chief. What the hell???

  6. r m says:

    Not sure if they can fire a Sheriff since they’re elected. Might be interesting to have them send the feds into a county to arrest them. Feds might find themselves in the pokie!!

  7. John6598 says:

    We already have a method of firing Sheriffs who disobey laws against the wishes of the people they serve. It’s called an election.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      No! You obviously need to READ YOUR STATE’s CONSTITUTION and APPLY THE POWERS YOU AS A CITIZEN HAVE TO REMOVE THEM!

      1. Garry says:

        I see you repeating this over and over, but must not realize that all states have their own Constitution and may not have the exact provisions you wish us to find in them.
        Example: Texas Constitution does not have a means to “Remove from office” any County Sheriff. He can be censured for misconduct, or arrested by the Texas Rangers. There is no higher authority other than “The People”
        There is a clause that the Legislature may create means as necessary to remove from office any officer, but none exist at the time of our last published Constitution.
        I guess it must not be very viable to remove a Sheriff except in extraordinary circumstances, which obviously has not happened in Texas yet. There have been a few that have resigned, but none removed by statutory authority.

        1. Gregory Romeu says:

          Go back and re-ead everything I have written, then respond back to me without twisting my words or distorting the context of my statements.

          Oh GOD we are in deep shit!

          1. Curtis says:

            @Gregory – Garry hasn’t twisted your words, and we all have had no choice but to read your posts because they all say the same thing… “Read your state constitution for instruction on how to remove a sheriff”.

            Garry has very clearly stated that in the State of Texas, there isn’t any such special provision. Your comment may be true for YOUR state but it does not necessarily hold true for all.

          2. Gregory Romeu says:

            “Read your state constitution for instruction on how to remove a sheriff”.

            Jesus HChrist??? Show me where I have EVER said this!

            “Garry has very clearly stated that in the State of Texas, there isn’t any such special provision. Your comment may be true for YOUR state but it does not necessarily hold true for all.”

            Evidently you need to go back and re-read what I said as well… I never indicated any of this stuff. You guys are twisting what I stated. That is one of the biggest problems we have in this nation. People not reading what is written and adding assumptive crap to suit what the think thy read.

            Show me where I made any such statement! …ad I DO live in Texas!

  8. ckehoss says:

    Law enforcement is suppose to be held to a higher standard is what I have heard.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      Should anyone bother to read their States Constitution, they would discover THE PEOPLES’ solution for removing ANY elected or appointed official by means of a NOTICE and DEMAND… But, I guess watching sports and Whose Dancing With The Dipsticks or American Idiot is far more important for all that civic responsibility?’

      1. ckehoss says:

        I suppose being married to a cop and spawning one makes me one of those idiots? Is this your way of making your point? You might want to try anger management class.

        1. Gregory Romeu says:

          Perhaps you need to study a dictionary, take college courses and medical training to be able to distinguish the differences between anger and frustration over mass ignorance and stupidity? Being married to and “spawning” (Had to swim up stream?) a peace officer does not qualify you to know the difference. Please focus on responses directed directly at YOU!

          1. ckehoss says:

            Keep your fecal matter restricted to your own mouth and stop spraying off information about which you know nothing.

          2. Gregory Romeu says:

            Then again we haven’t seen anything intelligent come from you? All I see is snide and rude comments you make to others with you not engaging anything of fact?

          3. Curtis says:

            @Gregory – I am sorry but I must side with ckehoss here. You were the one who drew first blood with your sarcastic response about “Lipstick and Dancing” then followed it up a rather insulting comment about the lady’s intelligence, suggesting she read a dictionary.

            When reading the written word, it is extremely difficult to differentiate between extreme frustration and anger. One might even say they are not really any different, especially since you have a proclivity for over using CAPS, as if we all must stop what we are doing and pay attention to Gregory.

            I suspect that if you were to stop SHOUTING AT US and engage in reasonable adult discourse, you would find people will tend to be much more accommodating.

          4. Gregory Romeu says:

            I suggest you go back and re-read each comment I made from the beginning. I have never engaged that person until she first engaged me. Get your facts straignht.

          5. ckehoss says:

            Right now I’m sitting here looking at you trying to see things from your point of view but I can’t get my head that far up my asston martin

          6. Gregory Romeu says:

            In the end it won’t matter as you have proven yourself to be worthless of providing any solutions or civic responsibility.

            For the rest? Check out your State’s regulations in regared to your, (The peoples’) power to remove elected or appointed officials.

            For those that claim that only the governor can do this, then I would question your state legislators as to what the remedy would be if your states’ Governor were corrupt.

            http://www.wcl.american.edu/endsilence/documents/50StateSurveyofOfficialMisconductStatutesFINAL_August2009.pdf

            These powers were drafted for WE, THE PEOPLE to maintain governance and power over tyranny. If for any reason your state does no allow the people this power, then you have more problems and work ahead of you in your own state.

            If you cannot control your own public officials, then you lost the battle long before it started. I strongly suggest you get that remedied immediately

          7. ckehoss says:

            Your DAs are being killed, your navy seals, the cartel is killing innocent people in lakes and rivers and you want to talk about corruption to me? Perhaps our governor went to prison but he did not leave dead people strewn across the state. Did your parents drop you as a baby?

          8. Gregory Romeu says:

            what kind of a pissing-match is THAT? Focus on bragging about what YOU are DOING for your country… Other than wasting peoples time in a forum you are obviously un-armed to deal with!

          9. ckehoss says:

            You can brag about yourself, Greg.

            “There is a difference between conceit and confidence. Conceit is bragging about yourself. Confidence means you believe you can get the job done.”

          10. Gregory Romeu says:

            I finally figured you out! You…

            Can’t Understand Normal Thinking!

          11. ckehoss says:

            Damn not you again…….
            Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but you abuse the privilege.

  9. Rosarian says:

    It will never even make it out of committee. Besides, sheriffs are elected officials, not appointed and very difficult to fire. She’s just a blustering liberal.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      Matters not if they are elected or appointed ANY such public servant can be fined, incarcerrated and even removed from office for WILLFUL NEGLECT OF STATUTORY DUTY as per their OATH OF OFFICE. Read your State’s Constitution.

      1. Garry says:

        I have read it….You’re wrong about the Sheriffs.

        1. Gregory Romeu says:

          Gary, if you choose to remain ignorant of facts that have taken place, then so be it. the rest of the nation wants SOLUTIONS. For you evidently being above the intelligence of normal human beins, I suggest you contact Sheriff Jeffrey Christopher personally and ask him yourself. 302-542-1437. He has voice-mail and will return yours or anyone’s calls.

        2. Gregory Romeu says:

          Let me give you some simple key words here…

          I said: DELAWARE, GOVERNOR BIDEN and REMOVED POWERS OF ARREST OF THE COUNTY SHERIFFS.

          Dont complain to me if you cannot do your own research, OR contact Sheriff Christopher directly as I have directed others to do…

          1. Garry says:

            I don’t live in Delaware.You are telling everyone to read their own States Constitutions. I did just that, and there is no provision for the Vice President or any other authority outside the State to censure or direct any County Sheriff. It’s not my fault you live in a state that allows such actions. Maybe you should move to a state that enjoys its sovereignty.If Biden made a move like the one you are describing in Texas, Greg Abbot would laugh in his face. Sorry for your situation, but it seems your state is the one in trouble…

          2. ckehoss says:

            I would not be so proud to say that I support and live in the most corrupt state in the Union. Greg and everyone else taking bribes from the NRA and if you speak against them, you will wind up like your own District Attorney, deputy and then they will come after your family. No thanks, I think we will keep to the north of the ignorance spraying out from the south.

          3. Gregory Romeu says:

            “I don’t live in Delaware.”

            Neither do I.

            “You are telling everyone to read their own States Constitutions.”

            Yes, and?

            ” I did just that, and there is no provision for the Vice President or any other authority outside the State to censure or direct any County Sheriff.

            Show me where I ever told you that there was?

            ” It’s not my fault you live in a state that allows such actions. Maybe you should move to a state that enjoys its sovereignty.If Biden made a move like the one you are describing in Texas, Greg Abbot would laugh in his face. Sorry for your situation, but it seems your state is the one in trouble”

            I never said it was you fauklt for ANYTHING, other than the fact that you never read a word that, “I” wrote. You responded back to me with all sorts of off-the-wall babbling of things I never stated? By the way, I live in Texas.

  10. Richard says:

    Let’s have a recall or impeachment of those who do not follow or enforce our current laws.

    Not about guns on this one, why don’t we have social security withholdings go into a separate s/s fund account ( the way it was supposed to be ) and not into the general fund. Only people who paid into it or are entitled would receive benefits. With the amount of people who die every year before they are eligible to collect benefits, there should be a large surplus of money.

    1. Pathfinder0100 says:

      Richard–I sure like what you say. If only it would come true!! Don’t think that the POS politicans would ever let it happen. Sad-Sad-Sad

      1. Gregory Romeu says:

        Its THE PEOPLES’ GRAND JURY PROCESS that removes these cretins from office… Matters not if they are elected or appointed ANY such public servant can be fined, incarcerrated and even removed from office for WILLFUL NEGLECT OF STATUTORY DUTY as per their OATH OF OFFICE. Read your State’s Constitution.

        1. Garry says:

          Peoples Grand Jury does not appear in Texas Constitution. Where do you practice law?

          1. Gregory Romeu says:

            Look a little longer and a little deeper, there aren’t any basketball games on tonight.

          2. Garry says:

            Insulting my intelligence does not make you any smarter. I replied that I had already read all 212 pages of my States Constitution, and it does not contain any provision for a Peoples Grand Jury as you suggest. I don’t watch sports on TV other than NFL, one day a week during the season. I’m not into any reality TV, but am a C-Span Junkie. I am thoroughly involved in, especially, State Politics. I testify on many hearings of bills that come into committee that are of concern to me. My US Congressman, both State Senators, my State Congressman and Senator all know me by name You don’t know me, and should look within yourself before you judge other people.

          3. Gregory Romeu says:

            ” I replied that I had already read all 212 pages of my States Constitution, and it does not contain any provision for a Peoples Grand Jury as you suggest.”

            FACT: I never said ANYTHING about your state or any other state having ANYTHING to do with, Peoples Grand Jury in it/them, did I?

            ” I don’t watch sports on TV other than NFL, one day a week during the season. ”

            FACT: You watch sports.

            ” I am thoroughly involved in, especially, State Politics. I testify on many hearings of bills that come into committee that are of concern to me. My US Congressman, both State Senators, my State Congressman and Senator all know me by name You don’t know me, and should look within yourself before you judge other people.”

            FACT: As they SHOULD know you and you should know them. All of my elected officials know me because I communicate with them constantly, it’s our civic responsibility and duty to do so.

            I said: within your state’s constitution IS “THE FORMULA TO REMOVE CORRUPT ELECTED OR APPOINTED OFFICIALS”… I never said anything about The Peoples Grand Jury being in your state’s constitution, however that should be in your State’s Jurisprudence somewhere within REMEDIES. Now don’t go doing a quick web search through your State’s Constitution for the word REMEIES… You have to actually read the Constitution of YOUR state to see how your remedies are worded.

            We as a nation have never been taught to read our states constitution or that it ever contained such powerful information. We have been dumbed-down as a whole by many, “distractions” such as sports and reality tv. That’s why we can fill stadiums and arenas for sporting events and concerts or living rooms with tv shows but cant hardly get anyone up off their ass to go fill the polls… Let alone realize that by voting, their job as a citizen is only BEGINNING… Most think that because they voted that their job as a citizen is done and that they have no more concerns until the next election period.

            They are to maintain their elected and appointed officials from that point on and when the elected or appointed get out of line, it is up to the citizens to either act to put them back in their place or remove them from that position…

            THAT SOLUTION is laid-out within your States Constitution. If the people do not READ their own States Constitution and understand their power as a citizen, then why are they here complaining about anything at all?

  11. Donald Reed says:

    OK then we arrest all politicians that refuse to act on laws that are on the books, such a, Calif. voted a long time ago English only. so all the Atty Generals that haven’t enfoced it should be in JAIL. There are so many that the US ATTY GEN is ignoring that he should be in Cuba under lock and Key.
    Where do these people come from that want duly elected Sheriffs can be force to go gainst the Constitution?

    1. Greg says:

      The President commits high crimes and misdemnors and the House won’t impeach him (because the Senate won’t convict him). This seems like checks and balances in reverse. And the Supreme Courts is kind of shaky tool

  12. Ernie says:

    Any public official that introduces :a bill such as this should be taken care of for treason against this country.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      Then READ YOUR STATE’s CONSTITUTION and APPLY THE POWERS YOU AS A CITIZEN HAVE TO REMOVE THEM!

  13. william says:

    I think they will write into the legislation to override the vote if the sheriiffs don’t uphold the anti-gun laws. On the other hand,in states like Texas, Montana, Idaho, Oklahoma and some others, the legislatures may run into a problem with the people who elected the sheriffs. I don’t think they ever considered an uprising by the populace to back the sheriffs.

  14. michael959 says:

    Alright Texas this Yvonne Davis-Obamanation needs to Go.

  15. Ed says:

    Shouldn’t the sheriff arrest folks who are attempting to violate the laws? For example those who act in defiance our our Constitution and in violation of their solemn oaths of office by submitting and/or passing bogus “laws”. The moment any “infringement” is passed, the local sheriff wherever the enacting body is sitting should immediately arrest all who voted for the measure for treason! It’s getting really real, folks…

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      READ YOUR STATE’s CONSTITUTION and APPLY THE POWERS YOU AS A CITIZEN HAVE TO REMOVE THEM!

  16. Rivwerrat says:

    ~~ How about some legislation that recalls any legistrator that don’t enforce thier oath to up hold the constitution

    1. Pathfinder0100 says:

      YEAH!!!!

      1. Curtis says:

        Most states already have such a law. It is called a recall election.

    2. Gregory Romeu says:

      Already been done, over th past several hundred years… READ YOUR STATE’s CONSTITUTION and APPLY THE POWERS YOU AS A CITIZEN HAVE TO REMOVE THEM!

      1. Curtis says:

        In the state of Virginia, the people cannot remove an elected official. That is reserved for the House of Delegates and the Governor.

        I read my State Constitution and found out!

        1. Gregory Romeu says:

          You mighpower because if ANY eklected or appointed official COMMITS A CRIME WHILE IN OFFICE, the people have the right toi instigate an indictment process against the elected or appointed official for WILLFUL NEGLECT OF STATUTRY DUTY. it may be worded differently per state but the power remains in he hands of the people to remove from office ANY corrupt official.

  17. bob jones says:

    I think this Yvonne Davis in Dallas better watch her step, this is Texas she is trying to put the screws to. We ain’t going to stand for a bunch of BS from the democrats. Yvonne get of your high horse before somebody knocks you off of it.

    1. ckehoss says:

      bob jones I think this Yvonne Davis in Dallas better watch her step, this is Texas she is trying to put the screws to. We ain’t going to stand for a bunch of BS from the democrats. Yvonne get of your high horse before somebody knocks you off of it.

      Yo Bob, I am republican, you are going to have to shoot everyone, I guess. Then you can defend your own dumbass border without the funds of the rest of the country. I vote that Texas leave the union and be its own country again. This way we can use the funds for our borders against you.

      1. Howard Taber says:

        When has (the rest of the country) provided any funds, or protection to the border.? The rest of the country is wasting the money extorted from Texas. Texas can stand alone and there are several states that would be happy to stand with it.

        1. Gregory Romeu says:

          Google: FOB Harmony for one such solution!

  18. Ed Galicki says:

    I thought the sheriff was elected by the people of the county where they serve. What does the state have to do with that office?

    We should all band together SOON to prevent enforcement of this totalitarian regime’s illegal laws. The constitution is supposed to protect us and if it doesn’t the second amendment is there for us – and they are specifically prohibited by that constitution from passing any law to inhibit our right to bear arms and protect ourselves – from harm and from the out of limit government. They have sworn the oath to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic – and it turns out they are themselves the domestic enemies.

    1. Mindy Robinson says:

      Yes, it is time for Americans who believe in freedom to unite, it is past time.

    2. Gregory Romeu says:

      We already ARE doing that… http://OathKeepers.net

  19. John D says:

    Sheriffs like politicians are elected officials and can not be fired. They can be put up for recall but not fired. Armed citizens will support our sheriffs and law enforcement personnel that honor their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution. If anyone who should be removed from office it should be the politicians and any other elected offical that is refusing to honor their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution. Anyone that has turned their back on the Constitution of the United States does not deserve to remain in the office they were elected to. They swore a solemn oath “So help me God” and now they feel they have the right to ignore that oath and what it stands for. I disagree.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      Its called WILLFUL NEGECT of STATUTORY DUTY… A high-crime which EACH States’ Constitution gives THE PEOPLE the formula for removal of such corrupt elected OR appointed officials.

  20. BillieJoe says:

    So, then, why can’t we remove from office all of those Democrats in Washington that have refused to follow the constitution and laws? For instance, the Senate has not passed a budget in 4 years. Obama refuses to follow immigration laws. How do we get rid of him and the Senate Dems?

    1. Mindy Robinson says:

      We can. we have to unite and make it happen.

      1. Gregory Romeu says:

        It’s called WILLFUL NEGECT of STATUTORY DUTY… A high-crime which EACH States’ Constitution gives THE PEOPLE the formula for removal of such corrupt elected OR appointed officials through use of The Peoples Grand Jury..

  21. Michael38 says:

    I would not get all nervous and jerky over this yet, it is my understanding the legislation is proposed but has not yet passed. I cannot imagine something like this passing in Texas. It is amazing how many ridiculous ideas on how to control the American Citizens come from Democrats. One way or another, the people in this country are going to wake up and put a stop to this moronic behavior.

    1. Garry says:

      I read the bill. It has been submitted to the Federalism committee, which also has about 12 bills that directly contradict this bill, ie. sanctioning and fining any state or county employee that assists Feds enforcing any weapons or accessory laws passed after 1/1/13. It will go nowhere.
      Having said that, I read the bill and the wording of it would prove interesting as it’s not exclusively about guns, but about Federal Laws. If in fact this bill were to be brought up, every mayor operating a Sanctuary City could be fired… Unintended consequences?

  22. Terry C says:

    It will be interesting to see how far this bill goes and how much heat Ms. Davis receives from her constituants.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      Uh? Are you sure you’re not giving her constituents far too much credit for thinking? I mean, it was her, “constituents” that put her in office.

  23. ladykroft says:

    This is the “crisis” that obama will create in order to justify martial law and to cancel elections. The sheriffs who will not enforce gun control need to start deputizing the locals because obama will send in foreign troops and this militia that he’s assembled to sweep across towns and sheriffs and forcibly take over and disarm the people…there’s a bad moon arising. Now the 1.6 billion bullets, personnel carriers, tanks, and AR15s… will come into play. Mark my words.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      So many people quickly forget about the 22 PLUS MILLION Military Veterans we have in this country and THAT is just the military alone, not including Veteran Police Officers, Sheriffs and Deputies!

  24. James says:

    Elected officials that swore to uphold the constitution when elected and then have not upheld the constitution – they should all be tried and convicted of treason!

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      It’s called WILLFUL NEGECT of STATUTORY DUTY… A high-crime which EACH States’ Constitution gives THE PEOPLE the formula for removal of such corrupt elected OR appointed officials through use of The Peoples Grand Jury.. READ and UNDERSTAND your RESPONSINBILITIES nd DYUTIES as a United States citizen and MAINTAIN YOUR GOVERNMENT!

  25. Chiefatk says:

    I wonder how stupid people like Davis get enough votes to place them into public office? Surely she must know that most, if not all, sheriff positions are voted in. I doubt that they can be fired by some idiot without being voted out by the citizens. Seems to me that Davis is the one that should be fired by popular vote. On second thought, lets not wait for a vote, just fire her dumb butt. It will be interesting to see how the states play this latest Liberal, idiotic idea.

    1. Howard Taber says:

      She is elected by stupid people. Those incapable of thought, just standing there with their hand out.

    2. Gregory Romeu says:

  26. Rick Q says:

    I have an idea that could/might be a work around for any state that does enact such legislation. The residents of any county/city/township that are affected by such legislation in turn getting a new Sheriff or Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) as a replacement who agrees with the Feds yet make up a strong 2nd Amendment constituency might in turn promise to make citizens arrests of any Sheriff and/or LEO would accepts the job(s) upon assumption of the position. Furthermore, make a declaration that no law in that county or locality would be deemed enforceable as long as their Sheriff or LEO has not been duly elected in a free and fair election. Any prospective replacement may decide not to take the job if their own freedom is at stake.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      I cannot believe that you even posted ANY of that??? What country are you from?

      1. vanguard7 says:

        Sounds to me like he’s from America. But then again, I’m understanding what he is trying to say. May be missing a few words but the gist is, the people of a county can disavow a Sheriff’s authority if they all band together. What’s the Sheriff gonna do? Arrest everyone in the county. Romeu, all I’ve seen from you throughout this entire thread has been the same bloviating diatribe that is reminiscent of fecal matter.

  27. Liam O'Sruitheain says:

    How can states legally fire Sheriffs? The Sheriffs are elected COUNTY officials ……. responsible to the citizens of their COUNTY.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      Because the citizens are too predisposed with their own petty lifestyles and too arrogant to MAINTAIN THEIR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES… That is why people cow-tow to the term, “Elected Leaders” The people have become far too complacent to care or worry about their duties as citizens.

  28. BillCa says:

    Oh, please, let her introduce her precious little bill in the legislature and please let her garner support from some state Democrats. Please.

    Then the Texas Attorney General file charges against them for conspiracy to violate the 1st Amendment rights of Texas County Sheriffs. If the AG can’t make that charge stick, violating their oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution should stick. It’s there in black and white. You or I can easily say that we will not obey a certain law (or proposed law should it be enacted) and there is no crime. Not until said law is actually disobeyed. Until one of the Sheriffs makes good on his word, there is no crime.

    What Yvonne Davis seeks is to punish political speech by a certain group in lieu of them actually breaking some law.

  29. Fireplace says:

    Seems to me that the only ones breaking Federal Law are those that go against the Constitution they swore to uphold, support and defend . Their ONLY authority comes from the very Document they took an oath to uphold. Sheriffs are elected by the people in a constitutional process, and Politicians have no authority to have them fired because they’re standing up to the oath THEY took to defend this country against enemies both foreign AND domestic, and to support the civil liberties guaranteed to US citizens against traitorous and treasonous politicians. As far as I’m concerned, Yvonne Davis should e striooed of her position for betraying her sworn oath.

  30. Stephen Ray Hale says:

    This is a redundantly announcement of a state of war of the government with the people. They already are in a state of war with us when they tax over 9.99% of our income (1 Samuel 8:15-17 comparing this with 1 Corinthians 7:20-24). If for some reason they pass a law that makes me a criminal for doing things lawfully up to that time, I had decided to surrender ONLY to the Sheriff…now if such a law is passed concerning the Sheriff’s that would be as bad as surrendering to the Feds.

  31. Bisley says:

    I doubt that the state legislature has legal authority to fire an elected county sheriff, or police hired by city governments. It would be like Congress firing a governor for not enforcing their laws.

    1. KenChimp says:

      You are correct. Legislatures, state and federal have but one recourse to removing persons from elected public office: articles of impeachment.
      Any legislative body in the United States which makes law that which is anathema to the Constitution for the United States, and/or the Constitutions of the several states, is usurping power it was never granted under our system of governance. Therefore such laws are null and void, and attempted enforcement of such laws, by legislative or executive power IS A CRIME.

      1. Gregory Romeu says:

        Wrong… It’s called WILLFUL NEGECT of STATUTORY DUTY… A high-crime which EACH States’ Constitution gives THE PEOPLE the formula for removal of such corrupt elected OR appointed officials through use of The Peoples Grand Jury.. READ and UNDERSTAND your RESPONSINBILITIES and DUTIES as a United States citizen and MAINTAIN YOUR GOVERNMENT!

  32. Stephen Ray Hale says:

    People, you really need to get online, obtain a copy of John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government, and before you make up your mind, find out what JEFFERSON was seeing when He wrote the Declaration of Independence. For example, read below, and find if this is not our circumstances today – the following is from the nineteenth chapter called Dissolution of Governments:

    225. Secondly: I answer, such revolutions happen not upon every little mismanagement in public affairs. Great mistakes in the ruling part, many wrong and inconvenient laws, and all the slips of human frailty will be borne by the people without mutiny or murmur. But if a long train of abuses, prevarications, and artifices, all tending the same way, make the design visible to the people, and they cannot but feel what they lie under, and see whither they are going, it is not to be wondered that they should then rouse themselves, and endeavour to put the rule into such hands which may secure to them the ends for which government was at first erected, and without which, ancient names and specious forms are so far from being better, that they are much worse than the state of Nature or pure anarchy; the inconveniencies being all as great and as near, but the remedy farther off and more difficult.

    226. Thirdly: I answer, that this power in the people of providing for their safety anew by a new legislative when their legislators have acted contrary to their trust by invading their property, is the best fence against rebellion, and the probable means to hinder it. For rebellion being an opposition, not to persons, but authority, which is founded only in the constitutions and laws of the government: those, whoever they be, who, by force, break through, and, by force, justify their violation of them, are truly and properly rebels. For when men, by entering into society and civil government, have excluded force, and introduced laws for the preservation of property, peace, and unity amongst themselves, those who set up force again in opposition to the laws, do rebellare- that is, bring back again the state of war, and are properly rebels, which they who are in power, by the pretence they have to authority, the temptation of force they have in their hands, and the flattery of those about them being likeliest to do, the proper way to prevent the evil is to show them the danger and injustice of it who are under the greatest temptation to run into it.

  33. Stephen Ray Hale says:

    More from John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government Chapter Nineteen:

    212. Besides this overturning from without, governments are dissolved from within:

    First. When the legislative is altered, civil society being a state of peace amongst those who are of it, from whom the state of war is excluded by the umpirage which they have provided in their legislative for the ending all differences that may arise amongst any of them; it is in their legislative that the members of a commonwealth are united and combined together into one coherent living body. This is the soul that gives form, life, and unity to the commonwealth; from hence the several members have their mutual influence, sympathy, and connection; and therefore when the legislative is broken, or dissolved, dissolution and death follows. For the essence and union of the society consisting in having one will, the legislative, when once established by the majority, has the declaring and, as it were, keeping of that will. The constitution of the legislative is the first and fundamental act of society, whereby provision is made for the continuation of their union under the direction of persons and bonds of laws, made by persons authorised thereunto, by the consent and appointment of the people, without which no one man, or number of men, amongst them can have authority of making laws that shall be binding to the rest. When any one, or more, shall take upon them to make laws whom the people have not appointed so to do, they make laws without authority, which the people are not therefore bound to obey; by which means they come again to be out of subjection, and may constitute to themselves a new legislative, as they think best, being in full liberty to resist the force of those who, without authority, would impose anything upon them. Every one is at the disposure of his own will, when those who had, by the delegation of the society, the declaring of the public will, are excluded from it, and others usurp the place who have no such authority or delegation.

  34. Stephen Ray Hale says:

    From John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government that is similar to this threat above:

    218. Why, in such a constitution as this, the dissolution of the government in these cases is to be imputed to the prince is evident, because he, having the force, treasure, and offices of the State to employ, and often persuading himself or being flattered by others, that, as supreme magistrate, he is incapable of control; he alone is in a condition to make great advances towards such changes under pretence of lawful authority, and has it in his hands to terrify or suppress opposers as factious, seditious, and enemies to the government; whereas no other part of the legislative, or people, is capable by themselves to attempt any alteration of the legislative without open and visible rebellion, apt enough to be taken notice of, which, when it prevails, produces effects very little different from foreign conquest. Besides, the prince, in such a form of government, having the power of dissolving the other parts of the legislative, and thereby rendering them private persons, they can never, in opposition to him, or without his concurrence, alter the legislative by a law, his consent being necessary to give any of their decrees that sanction. But yet so far as the other parts of the legislative any way contribute to any attempt upon the government, and do either promote, or not, what lies in them, hinder such designs, they are guilty, and partake in this, which is certainly the greatest crime men can be guilty of one towards another.

    1. KenChimp says:

      Thank you so much, Sir, for quoting from Locke’s Second Treatise on Government! This is one of the founding philosophies for our constitutional democratic republic, and it is such a joy to find other Americans who are not only familiar with it, but intimately familiar with it!

  35. Bob McKenna says:

    Y’all are missin’ the point. Local Sheriffs are OUR PEOPLE ! Elected by the people they serve.
    They, Just like Sherriff Joe in Arizona, have been put in their jobs because they do what the people in their jurisdictions want them to do.
    The people in those jurisdictions DO NOT WANT some Washington appointee guiding or forcing the direction of their lives.
    Any so called State legislator who attempts to subvert local law inforcement by LOCALLY ELECTED people should be removed.
    Get rid of this Administration tool, not the Sheriffs.

  36. Bo says:

    This issue is more serious than some think. People take their rights seriously, more seriously than the politicians think. We will stick togather and fight for our rights to be free. Don’t ask us to pickup guns and go to war for you idiots, you can protect your selves. We won’t be sending our sons or daughters either. For what, without our constitution there is no America.

  37. Jim Wiseman says:

    It’s unbelievable that elected officials who won’t follow the Constitution can fire those who do.

  38. sheriff 440 says:

    In Ohio the only government offical who can investigate the county sheriff is the county coroner.He can conduct a investigation and send it to the county prosecutor for charges.Since the county prosecutor can only file state charges and has no standing in federal law, I think we have a “catch 22″. County sheriff’s cannot enforce federal laws. this is why the sheriff cannot conduct sweeps to arrest and detain “illegal aliens”. They do have the authority to conduct background checks on “illegal aliens” who are arrested for crimes defined by the Ohio Revised Code.Once a background check reveals a person is in the country illegally, ICE(Immigration,Customs,Enforcement) is notifed and choses to deport or not deport said person The current policy for ICE is not to deport “illegals”charged or convicted of misdemeanor crimes.

  39. KenChimp says:

    First, no legislature (or executive power) has the legal mandate to remove a person from elected office in any manner other than articles of impeachment. The House of the state Congress must bring articles of impeachment, and the Senate of the state Congress must try the case.
    Second, no law that is in direct contradiction to the Constitution for the United States in its mandate of powers, responsibilities and procedures for Federal and state government, and for the People, is legitimate. Any such law is therefore null and void.
    These petty tyrants, demagogues with a void in their hearts and minds, make pretense to power they simply do not legitimately have under our system of governance. It is such persons who must be removed from office. If the legislative body in which they were elected to position is incapable or unwilling to bring articles of impeachment against them for their crimes, the state legislative bodies must do so. If they cannot or will not, then it is up to the People through local government to DEMAND it. Barring this, there can be no legitimate government and this republic will descend into tyranny or anarchy.

  40. Steve K says:

    I think we should initiate legislation to fire and rescind all retirement and pension of anyone in public office who has taken an oath to uphold the constitution and its laws, and is suggesting to do so. This would include Dallas Democratic Representative Yvonne Davis who introduced the measure. These unconstitutional socialists must go!

    One of the best 7 minute speeches on gun control ever:

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      If people would just READ their States Constitution rather than watch sports or reality tv, they might discover that THE SOLUTION TO THESE PROBLEMS ALREADY EXIST!

      The tool is called: NOTICE and DEMAND… the POWER is filing a WILLFUL NEGLECT OF STATUTORY DUTY upon the elected OR appointed official then handing this matter over to the PEOPLES’ GRAND JURY for investigation and indictment as necessary.

      But, people as they are, are too busy with their own busy little lives to worry about their civic responsibilities and dutys as AMERICAN CITIZENS!

  41. harley says:

    So Texas, Vote Yvonne out. Better yet impeach her for not defending the constitution that she took and oath to defend.

  42. CDRSJB says:

    How about a law that fires congress if they fail to pass a balanced budget on time. That would clean out the house and senate and we could start over with new representatives that knew they would go to if they fail to do their job. Alas, congress passes the laws and they will never hold themselves responsible or accountable for anything.

  43. D Scott says:

    Do they actually think Rick Perry would sign such garbage – if it could possibly garner enough votes to pass??? If he halfway means what he’s been saying he’d veto it if it were to pass. So, in Texas, this kind of legislation would stand as much chance of passing and being signed as repealing obamacare on the Federal level.

  44. RRSmith says:

    Let,s just make sure the Texas Legislature does,nt pass this preposterous proposal from The Demtard Yvonne “the Wench” Davis

  45. Gregory Romeu says:

    I cannot believe how dumbed-down we as a people have become???

    PEOPLE! it is OUR responsibility as well as DUTY as a citizen to maintain our own government on ALL levels! Should ANY of these officials, (NOT “Elected LEADERS as many call them) fail in their duties per their Oath of Office IT IS A CRIME!

    It’s called WILLFUL NEGECT of STATUTORY DUTY… A high-crime which EACH States’ Constitution gives THE PEOPLE the formula for removal of such corrupt elected OR appointed officials through use of The Peoples Grand Jury.. READ and UNDERSTAND your RESPONSINBILITIES and DUTIES as a United States citizen and MAINTAIN YOUR GOVERNMENT!

  46. Jay Mark says:

    “In the Texas state legislature, Dallas Democratic Representative Yvonne Davis introduced a measure that would fire any aw enforcement officer who disobeys state or federal orders.”

    It figures that a woman would propose this. Another reason why we don’t need women in politics.

    Jay

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      FINALLY! Intelligence come forth in this forum! Ever since the un-checked powers of the feminist movement’s, “Women’s Equality” acts, the Violence Against Women Act and the Child Support Enforcement Act.

      ALL, combined, these, acts” have systematically destroyed the backbone of this nation by destroying the families for the sake of a few billions of dollars in corrupt civil court rhetoric.

      In most cases females would deny access of the children to the father under fraud of false allegations, failing to allow the fathers to raise and nurture their children.

      All promoted by the ignorance of females being led to believe that they were somehow, “empowered?

      All while men sat back watching sports or whatever other silly excuses they came up with for ignoring these travesties of justice, giving up their liberties… All because we allowed women to join politics.

    2. Gregory Romeu says:

      You will find this PDF file pretty interesting. It works in lock-step with the powers of the people. Then again, those that have been asleep and didn’t bother to maintain their governments on all levels lost out on their liberties to remove the cretins that are destroying their States.

  47. Mark says:

    Why is it a big crime for the Sheriff not to enforce Federal gun laws BUT it is also a big crime if he tires to enforce Federal immigration laws.

    I say let the Feds enforce their own damn laws and don’t raise my taxes to do it. They already create too much useless crap.

  48. Mark says:

    Sheriffs in Texas are elected by the local people. It needs to be up to the people whether or not to fire the sheriff.

  49. Michelle says:

    This story is all well and good but how about citing the sources such as the BILL #’s. If we are to believe any of this, it would help to give the information your story is based on.

    1. Gregory Romeu says:

      As per the Constitution of The United States and each and every elected official’s Oath of Office, this bill should have never been constructed as it is in direct violation of their Oaths of Office and results as being a Willful neglect of thbeir StatutoryDuty/Duties. THAT is cause for a Notice and Demand to be placed against them and if no response of compliance within 30 days, you slap them with a Willful Neglect of Statutory Duty, hand a copt to the Grand Jury for investigation and let them indict each and every one of the officials as necessary. Simple but never approached by the common citizen. I guess whatever Lindsy Lohan and that Kardashian chic do with their uteris is far more important, depending if there is a football or basketball game on to distract the mainstream citizen from applying their responsibilities and duties as citizens and ridding their “house” of the scum that crept in..

    2. Gregory Romeu says:

      HB 2167

  50. Michelle says:

    If this is reference to HB 2167, it has NO CHANCE of even getting out of committee. I testified in front of this committee (Federalism & Fiscal Responsibility) just a few weeks ago and I can tell you with 3 republicans and 2 democrats on the committee, this bill will go nowhere.

  51. don says:

    Mexico has very strict gun laws. If you cross the border even with 1 bullet you go to jail…PERIOD!!!

  52. Dr. Ryan Brown says:

    At what point do we start calling Gov. Snyder & Pres (imposter) Obama Emperors, or gods? The have taken all the power away from the people. In MI if the Gov does not like the way Gov’t is running – he can singularly appoint, without any vote / guidance / experience, even a criminal person in complete charge of a city.

    Likewise … what Obama does not want (even if Congress does not pass it, he makes it an executive order – while cowering (as the coward he is) against the N. Koreans and Iran…. Makes you wonder what side he is on? Huh?
