Unicoi Co. Commission backs state’s votes on guns/johnsoncitypress.com/August 31, 2009

August 31, 2009

Reported by Jim Wozniak, Erwin Bureau Chief, jwozniak@johnsoncitypress.com

ERWIN – The Unicoi County Commission normally takes a dim view of the actions of state government, but last week the panel quickly voted to support a resolution that backed the Tennessee Legislature’s votes on guns.

“The Tennessee Legislature is commended for their recent passage of several laws lessening the restrictions on people keeping and bearing arms,” the county’s resolution states. “This legislative body (in Unicoi County) supports the rights of its citizens to keep and bear arms in conformity with the rights provided in the United States Constitution.”

The resolution was quickly adopted last Monday in a unanimous vote.

The resolution was the brainchild of Sheriff Kent Harris, who had been approached by Dr. Dan Moore about the idea of supporting the Second Amendment. He liked what Moore had in mind.

“Me and him had spoken about what was going on on the state level and different things about the Second Amendment, the Constitution, about the right to bear arms,” Harris said. “He wanted my opinion of it. I told him what my opinion is – that people have a right to carry a firearm. I believe in people’s right to bear arms.

“My officers have never bothered anybody that’s going armed unless they’re out here breaking the law. Law-abiding citizens, we’re glad they got a gun. We might need them to help us. Whether somebody’s got a gun permit or not, if we stop them and they tell us they got a gun and they’re good, why bother them?”

Harris said he has not had a major problem with anyone who has a handgun permit. He said he supports the handgun permit program even though he believes a person has a right to carry a gun without one.

Moore drafted a resolution that was presented to County Mayor Greg Lynch, who favored it, and County Attorney Doug Shults, who reworded it to comply with all of the laws, Harris said. Moore considered the resolution that was presented to the commission to be watered down, but he said the development nonetheless was positive.

“I’m very proud of our sheriff and the county,” Moore said.

He said he went to Harris because of the importance of the sheriff to protect the community against foreign or domestic invasion and the possibility U.S. residents would have their guns taken away. He said other sheriffs were not as supportive as Harris about the resolution.

“We just wanted to send a message to the world that our county strongly supports the Second Amendment,” Moore said. “(Harris is) setting an example for the other sheriffs to truly uphold the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the of the land, other than God’s law.”

Why is a county government delving into this issue? Harris said it was a sign of support for the state Legislature and to convey the belief that Unicoi County backs gun ownership.

Moore said he and others are planning a rally “for freedom” during the Apple Festival. Details have not been finalized, but Harris said topics include the Second Amendment, taxes and government waste. The sheriff said Moore has asked him to speak, and he has agreed.

“It’s all about the Constitution,” Moore said.

He and Harris said there is a constitutional movement occurring in Unicoi County. Moore said it applies to other parts of the country as well.

“People are tired of seeing their freedoms taken away,” he said

Ok, the right questions are still not being asked on health care. Let me ask you some questions prior to your understanding of why I say this.

1.     Do you agree and understand that lobbyists influence the decisions made by our government?

2.     Do you understand that the anti trust laws have been relaxed over the years, by both parties, in regards to monopolies and market control activities by corporations?

3.     When the statements of government control health care is “essential” or must be part of the health care issue or whatever statement they want to use for governmental controlled health care, it is an integral part of this proposed health care plan.

Now the real question should be asked:

1. Who, in the lobbyist world, is pushing this proposed governmental control of the health care system?

If you think it is the administration that cares for all of us, don’t, you got to find out who is economically benefiting from it.

Let us not forget the banking industry where we were told if the first TARP wasn’t passed the entire economy would fail. What did they do? Not buying toxic assets as they stated but gave it to the banks which in turned bought other banks at bargain basement prices furthering their domination of the banking industry. Followed by the Federal Reserve buying up the toxic assets with printed money.

Now knowing the banking industry had this much power, how about the insurance industry, sitting in the middle of Wall Street and the rest of the economic power brokers? We know over the years they have been buying each other up and accumulating more control of the insurance industry. This in turn gives them more economic power and control of their lobbying activities for their benefit. Look at what our government did for AIG who got caught up in the Credit Default Swaps (another name for insurance but couldn’t call it that because it would have lead to governmental regulations), they gave them $180 Billion.

I know the government bureaucracies will have to administer the program but who will give them the guidance, rules, and regulations to support this behemoth? It will be the Congress and guess who gives them lobbying money for their life long careers, you are right if you answered the ones that will be economically benefiting from it. So this completes a circle that has been used aggressively in recent years to promote the most economically powerful programs for smaller groups of the economic elite, which will economically benefit from their influence.

Very little is done in Washington to benefit the people without benefiting some other economically powerful group. That is how things are done in Washington.
