In a podunk town called Gilberton, located in the blue collar coal mining country of Pennsylvania, lies a combination of irrational fear masked with false bravado from their chief of police, as well as plenty of ignorance with regards to the U.S. Constitution.
Meet Mark Kessler, Police Chief of the Gilberton Borough (population: 867) Police Department. Mr. Kessler, in the below video, is worried that the Federal Government is going to come after his guns, as well as those belonging to the citizens of his little community. To counter-act the improbable chance that the U.S. military will descend upon Gilberton Borough, Pennsylvania any time soon in a frantic search for privately-owned guns, Kessler is setting up a volunteer “Reserve Force”.
All one has to do to join this force is submit to a background check, supply their own gear, uniform, weapons, and ammunition. Volunteers will also be required to attend a firearms certification course to qualify with both long gun and hand gun at a rate set by the firearm instructor. There will also be hand to hand combat training, knife fighting training, urban combat training, sniper courses, search and rescue etc.
Wow… that sounds pretty daunting. I’m sure that the trained forces of the U.S. military, and their extensive array of weaponry, will have a rough go of it should they ever be commanded by President Obama, the evil liberal dictator, that all the guns lying around little Gilberton, Pennsylvania just have to be taken away.
Apparently, Mark Kessler and his ilk, as much as they worship the 2nd Amendment, are unschooled about Article VI, Clause 2 of the Constitution, otherwise known as the Supremacy Clause.
The “supremacy clause” is the most important guarantor of national union. It assures that the Constitution and federal laws and treaties take precedence over state law and binds all judges to adhere to that principle in their courts
They also appeared to have skipped over Chapter 115 of the U.S. Code, titled “Treason, Sedition, and Subverse Activities, where they might have noticed Seditious Conspiracy, as well as Rebellion or insurrection. Both of which clearly spell out that it is against the law, and treasonous, to incite violence and rebellion against the U.S Government.
But hey, if these misguided fools, with their amusing combination of ignorance and paranoia, would like to possibly take a nice vacation to Guantanamo Bay, where I hear the weather is warm year-round, or maybe even enjoy a peaceful trip to a grave yard, who are we to stop them? All of us with our crazy liberal views wholeheartedly believe in Darwinism here at aattp.org
Please watch the video and for an extra dose of fun, check out the creatively spelled and punctuated YouTube comments, like this one:
“When I see there are local Sheriffs and Police forces that are standing up for the Constitution all across the USA and not the Tyranical obama administrations, It reminds me of how great our country is. Now we need to do everything we can to get obama impeched and found guilty for the crimes he has commited against Americans. The fact that all local police forces are commited to upholding the constitution is the ONLY difference between us and Natzi Hitler.”
Yes, that’s the ONLY difference between the United States and “Nazi Hitler,” Bubba.
