Oath Keepers Defend the Second Amendment

Obama Meets With Law Enforcement Officials

As President Obama stokes the fires of gun control in our nation’s capital, some law enforcement officers are beginning to push back.

Obama recently initiated 23 executive orders related to gun violence, and is pressing Congress to take additional action, much of which is viewed by gun advocates as a threat to the second amendment of the Constitution.

Seeking to build support for his gun control mission, this week Obama gathered police chiefs and sheriffs from across the nation to Washington, DC for discussion, and (primarily) a campaign-style photo opportunity.   Many big-city police chiefs support Obama’s gun control measures, while the sheriffs are generally supporters of the second amendment.

Skeptics question whether the police chiefs back Obama because they believe in the effectiveness of taking weapons from citizens, or because he has promised to increase federal spending on local police departments, a move that delights the public-sector unions who were instrumental in his election.

In Montana, a number of local sheriffs have come out with public statements pledging their support for the Constitution.  Sheriff Scott Howard of Powell County said he would not enforce any “unconstitutional gun regulations.”

Most vocal among them was Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards.  In a Great Falls Tribune interview, Edwards said, “Everyone wants to wipe out guns. I’m pro-Second Amendment, and I believe the laws we have in place should curb a lot of this, but there have to be people that enforce them.  A lot of the laws are not being enforced.”

Many pro-Constitution law enforcement officials are members of the Oath Keepers, a growing organization made up of currently-serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who are sworn to protect the Constitution against all threats “foreign and domestic”.  Their mission is summed up on their website:

Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.

We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders.”

Our motto is “Not on our watch!”

One of the Oath Keepers, a New Jersey police officer, calls on his fellow law enforcement officers to refuse any order to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.

It is reassuring to know that there are government and law-enforcement officials who recognize and will preserve the rights of US citizens, especially at a time when our most powerful national leaders usurp authority at a pace never seen before in our nation’s history.

Here’s a great video of an original American rocker – Bobby Fuller.  Bobby died young under very mysterious circumstances – was it suicide?  Was it a mob hit? If interested, read the story here.  And do watch the cool 2-minute video:

  1. Oath Keepers. Oath takers. There is a very big difference. I would say for the vast majority of those that take an oath, they don’t even hear the words as they speak and give them no thought the moment they are finished. I have had the experience of watching people take an oath to their duty and the Constitution only to cast it aside like they never spoke the words to begin with.

    Given this criminal administration, I can only pray there are enough men and women out there that believe their word is their bond and when they take an oath they stand by it.

  2. Oath Keepers

    From some, it is said, “that America is Dead,
    Because the government has gone past the brink”.
    I say it isn’t so, and how would I know?
    It isn’t over, if that’s what you think.

    Preaching to the Choir Keeps a log on the Fire.
    In tumultuous times and War Theaters,
    Though their numbers be few, they’re Americans true
    Tis’ there you’ll find our true leaders.

    We sing the praise of our Nation’s earlier days
    When the fields of freedom were ready to plow
    To Canada people ran or at home they did stand,
    People are nae’ different than they are now.

    Yet a handful of Oath Keepers Held their ground.
    They won our freedom with frozen bare feet,
    with little more warmth than a campfire’s glow
    they pushed the troops of tyranny to defeat.

    The Oath Keepers fought hard for this land
    Through their ragged clothes the cold wind did blow
    When Washington prayed, twas over their graves
    and their bloody footprints in the Snow.

    It wasn’t just the founders that won our land,
    like Patrick Henry or Richard Henry Lee.
    It was the Oath Keepers that lie in unmarked graves
    They were common people just like you and me.

    They are the Gatekeepers, the guardians of the Castle,
    Their Ghosts still walk in this land.
    Putting fear and terror in the hearts of tyrants
    With William Wallace’s sword in their hand.

    For so long as there’s the spark of Freedom
    Held by the gatekeepers of the American Dream,
    Tyranny will never befall these Warriors of Liberty
    Nor silence their Spirits on Arlington Green.

    By many they’re called,Tea Party and Oath-keepers all
    In this Great Promised Land of the Free.
    I hear their voices call, from both big and the small
    To their numbers, Will be joined by me.
