Utah Sheriffs Unite To Uphold Second Amendment

Published

Recently, 29 of Utah’s sheriffs united and signed a letter, guaranteeing that they will do their best to uphold the Second Amendment. 

“Importantly, the Second Amendment of our divinely inspired Constitution clearly states … ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. We hereby recognize a significant principle underlying the Second Amendment: the right to keep and bear arms is indispensable to the existence of a free people, the sheriffs stated in the letter.

“As your elected Sheriffs, we individually and collectively pledge to do everything within our power to steadfastly protect the Second Amendment and all other individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution,” they said.

“We understand the destructive influences currently existing in our country will only relent when women and men everywhere genuinely care for each other. We must rely on Providence and care deeply about preserving the Constitution and its freedoms in order to be a strong and prosperous people,” they added.

The letter was crafted as a response to president Biden’s call to impose more strict gun controls, right after a slew of mass shootings around the country.

“Once again, I urge Congress to take immediate action and heed the call of the American people, including the vast majority of gun owners, to help end this epidemic of gun violence in America. Every life that is taken by a bullet pierces the soul of our nation. We can, and we must, do more,” Biden said in a statement.

The Utah sheriffs aren’t the only ones making strides to uplift the Second Amendment. Yesterday, Republican governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday signed the permitless carry bill into law, making it possible for Texans to carry handguns without any training or license. The law, which was authored by GOP Rep. Matt Schaefer, is scheduled to take effect on the 1st of September, 2021.

“By working together, the House and Senate will send Gov. Abbott the strongest Second Amendment legislation in Texas history, and protect the right of law-abiding Texans to carry a handgun as they exercise their God-given right to self-defense and the defense of their families,” Schaefer said.

The law was not without detractors and as expected received many criticisms, especially from liberals, wokes and members of the Democratic Party. Texas’ lieutenant governor Dan Patrick, an ally and party mate of Gov. Abbott, defended the “constitutional carry” bill.

“Those who said HB 1927 would never pass and who perpetuated stories of a ‘poison pill’ and other conspiracies willfully misled many Second Amendment supporters in Texas. They also underestimated how hard members of the House and Senate were working to pass this bill,” Abbott said.
