6000 Felonies, In One U.S. City, In One Day

I just knew that if the State continued to push people too far, they would eventually rebel.
No, these 6000 people were not criminals…’were not’ criminals, but they are now. Why? Because the state makes illegal laws. It’s your legislators who are the criminals.
Washington State’s new 18-page gun control law, I-594, may be the first gun law in the nation to be overturned, either through legislation or by a lawsuit. It is facing extraordinary resistance from gun owners, including a number of legislators. At a recent historic rally, thousands of gun owners gathered to make their feelings known.
Fed up with the passage of an 18½-page incoherent, rambling, illegal and unconstitutional gun control initiative sold to the voters as a safety issue was bankrolled and pushed by out of state billionaires. Follow the money and it will lead to several “America Hating tyrants”. Such as the Bloomberg’s, he banned 16 oz. drinks and now he is out banning guns.
Gun owners across Washington State held the largest felony civil disobedience rally in the nation’s history, brazenly titled “I Will Not Comply.” No one was hurt and no stores were looted. Initially between 1,000 and 3,000 lawful gun owners showed up openly armed at the state capitol in Olympia, Wash., to defy the newly passed gun control law, I-594, by the end of the rally there were more than 6000 protesters.
Organizer Gavin Seim made the extraordinary nature of the rally very clear, “This isn’t just’ a protest. We are here to openly violate the law.” Protesters publicly transferred their guns to each other in violation of I-591’s new background check provisions, and some even bought and sold guns just a few feet away from law enforcement. A fire pit blazed throughout the rally, and at the conclusion, gun owners lined up to burn their concealed weapons permits (why should one have to obtain a permit to do what one already has a constitutional right to do?). A petition was circulated affirming gun owners’ refusal to follow I-594, which ended with, “We pledge our blood. We will not comply.”
As the RSVPs in advance of the rally grew to over 6,000, the police – most who detest I-594 – decided not to enforce the law. The Washington State Patrol announced there would be no arrests for exchanging guns – not even for selling guns. Seim even refused to obtain a permit to hold the rally, citing the right of people to peaceably assemble. (Again a right guaranteed by the Constitution).
The rally could not be dismissed as just fringe elements. Several lawmakers and lawmen spoke, including former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack of Arizona, Washington State Rep. Elizabeth Scott (R-Monroe) and Rep. Graham Hunt (R-Orting), who sported an AR-15 during his speech. Mack advised gun owners engaging in civil disobedience to “put your sheriff next to you to keep it peaceful.” Scott defiantly explained in her speech, “I will not comply with I-594 because it is unconstitutional, unenforceable and unjust. It is impossible to enforce this law unless there is a police officer on every back porch and in every living room. So if it is enforced it will be enforced selectively.” She noted that Founding Father Alexander Hamilton said “any law that violates the Constitution is not valid, and there is a moral obligation to disobey such unjust laws”.
“No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves”. John Jay, First Chief Justice U.S. Supreme Court.
At one point, Gavin Seim invited all the attendees to kneel in prayer with him. Representative Graham Hunt addressed the rally carrying an AR-15. Organizers held another rally in Olympia on January 15, along with one in Spokane.
The Second Amendment Foundation, whose offices are in Bellevue Wash, plans to sue the state, to get the law modified or repealed.
THE BOTTOM LINE: The State can only shove so many free people into a small corner of oppression before even the meekest will eventually fight back.
How long are we going to sit by and allow the federal and state governments to violate the supreme law of America while they inforce and expect the citizens to obey illegally passed laws which violate the most basic fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution of these United States of America.
A proper prospective
While this may seem to some as a reasonable gun control law, on the other hand according to the Framers of the U.S. Constitution, American citizens have the right to be as equally armed as the State in order to preserve a Free State. This statement may seem shocking in light of the advanced military equipped police we have now become accustom to seeing on TV and on the streets. But what it actually shows, is just how blatantly out of control the police State has become rather than how out of control ordinary citizens have become. What used to be seen as a common crime in the streets, is now dramatically played out as if it is a Special Ops Mission in a war zone.
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania (1759)
If the State wants to disarm the citizens of the Nation then let them do it legally through the abolition of the Second U.S. Constitutional Amendment. Otherwise all anti-constitutional gun laws should be abolished. Oh! That’s all gun laws isn’t it…
“The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” It’s the law…
It’s time the State begins to obey the law and leave law abiding citizens alone.
Remember, Adolph Hitler did exactly the same thing, for exactly the same reason. We liberated the Germans, who will liberate us?
