Pam Fick, PCO for Island County’s Progressive Democratic Socialists recently showed up at an Oak Harbor City council meeting using a regurgitated Wyatt Earp argument to disarm citizens.
Pam Fick’s argument of Wyatt Earp’s ban on firearms within city limits however, was found unconstitutional by the U. S. Supreme Court decision, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ET AL. v. HELLER
See Pam Fick’s oral argument here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7KDJ0lRtGk&feature=youtu.be
While Pam Fick references Justice Scalia in the same Supreme Court decision to advance her agenda (look at Pam Fick’s T-shirt) of striping away the second amendment rights of law abiding citizens inch by inch, she fails to recognize this section of the Supreme Court ruling:
“Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.” U. S. Supreme Court decision, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ET AL. v. HELLER page 67.
Pam Fick’s agenda is written on her T-shirt. http://onemillionmomsforguncontrol.org/
While this organization’s website claims: “We understand the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms—just not ALL arms. Let’s make our country a better, less violent place for them.”
They fashion themselves after:
“Mothers Against Drunk Driving helped change lax laws in the 1980s, One Million Moms for Gun Control will not rest until common-sense gun laws are put in place at both the national and state levels.”
Unfortunately MADD’s efforts have led to a ZERO tolerance mentality where one drink with dinner at a local restaurant then driving home is illegal. Here is an fine example of this ZERO tolerant attitude: Lower the legal drinking limit http://www.southwhidbeyrecord.com/opinion/letters/191505931.html
Pam Fick, her fellow Progressive Democratic Socialists, and this organization claims: “We understand the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms—just not ALL arms.” Their long term objective is ZERO tolerance. Why? Because guns, in any form, conflicts with, “Let’s make our country a better, less violent place for them.”
So who gets to decide what firearms law abiding citizens can have? The answer: Pam Fick and her fellow Progressive Democratic Socialists get to decide. After all they have Wyatt Earp on their side.
In our fight to defend our Second Amendment rights, and all of our other rights, one must remember that APATHY is on Pam Fick’s side.
““First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.” Martin Niemoeller, known for his powerful statement (above) about the failure of Germans to speak out against the Nazis.
