FROM CALDWELL COUNTY SHERIFF’S CANDIDATE – LANCE WILSON:
Good evening! I wanted to let you know the news topic released article Friday about our sheriff candidacy. I will be officially announcing next Thursday, 6/13, at library in Lenoir at 7pm. Please come and bring our family….looking forward to a New Beginning in Caldwell County.
Go meet Lance Wilson. Ask questions. Get information from the man himself. Thursday, 6/13, at 7pm at the Caldwell County Library, 120 Hospital Ave, Lenoir, NC 28645.
The Sheriff’s race a very important as they are THE top law enforcement official in any county. All county Sheriff’s across the country grant or deny permission for other outside law enforcement agencies to come into their counties.
Let’s say the federal government, Dept of Homeland Security (DHS), gives orders to confiscate guns from law abiding citizens. The Sheriff in each county does one of four things:
1) can confiscate the guns themselves in violation of the state and federal constitutions,
2) can decide NOT confiscate the guns, thereby uphold the constitutions that swore an oath to defend and protect,
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
3) can allow other law enforcement agencies, like DHS, to enter Caldwell County to take your guns,
4) can prohibit other law enforcement agencies to enter Caldwell County to take your guns and thereby defend your constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Where does our current Sheriff stand on this issue?
Where does Lance Wilson stand?
Have they read Sheriff Mack’s book, “The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope” (2009)?
These are troubling and uncertain times. It’s up to all of us to do our homework.
