Police Chief Seeks Nullification of Gun Control


After watching anti-Constitution politicians in Washington, D.C., try to exploit the Newtown tragedy to trample on Americans' right to keep and bear arms, Gilberton Borough, Pennsylvania, Police Chief Mark Kessler decided enough was enough. Now, he is speaking out, and asking lawmakers in his small borough of around 1,000 people to pass a nullification measure. He is also promoting the idea nationwide, most recently appearing January 6 On the popular Alex Jones radio show heard all across the country.

In a January 8 phone interview with TRE NEW AMERICAN, Chief Kessler detailed his proposed "Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance," which would prevent any federal or state infringements on the right to keep and bear firearms, accessories, or ammunition within the jurisdiction. If approved, the resolution, citing the U.S. and Pennsylvania constitutions, would nullify any unconstitutional acts purporting to restrict gun rights.

"Hopefully this will spread like fire throughout the country, and the people will stand up and say, you know what, enough is enough, and under the 10th Amendment, which grants the power of nullification of unconstitutional laws, we're going to recognize this as unconstitutional, we're not going to enforce it. we're going to make sure this doesn't happen," the police chief asserted.
