The Florida Sheriff’s Association has issued a proclamation in support of the second amendment to the constitution. Below is a copy of the proclamation.
Thank you for expressing support for the US Constitution and the Second Amendment.
Thank you for supporting not only your rights but mine as well. Sometimes one citizen feels lost in all the politics and feel their own beliefs will never be important or heard. But when an organization such as yours makes a public statement like this it makes my voice feel much larger and indeed important once again. It’s nice to know the Law Enforcement Community is behind us in defending the Second Amendment–we’re always behind you.
Thanks you Sandra Mckerlie
I would just like to say that I praise and commend the Florida Sheriffs for taking such a proactive stance on this vital issue. I would urge other like minded individuals to publicly support them in their efforts to restore some constitutional sanity to government. There is only one word that i would change in this proclamation and that is the word “provided” to “PROTECTED” in the last paragraph. As our founding fathers acknowledged this right is was, and will always be a “God Given Right” and as such an “Inalienable Right” that existed even before the Constitution was written and would exist even if the constitution did not. The 2nd amendment was written into the constitution to restrict and prevent the government from exercising infringement upon that right of “We the People”. It does not “provide” that right to us as any right which is provided becomes a privilege and can be revoked by the providers. I know this may sound like semantics or nit picking but i think this is a very basic and important distinction that needs to be made. Keep up the good work and God Bless. P.S. As an afterthought I encourage any sheriffs or anyone else to visit cspoa.org very informative and inspiring.
