Respect For Respectful USNH/PSU Officials

This morning I had an excellent conversation with the University System of New Hampshire General Counsel Ronald Rogers and Plymouth State University Vice President for Student Affairs Richard Hage. I got a genuine sense that these two professionals were doing their very best to balance what is understandably is a difficult situation to deal with.

That situation is, of course, the informational outreach event scheduled for Friday at 9:00AM on their campus.

In response to the respectful way that the General Counsel and Vice President’s concerns were addressed to me, Tommy and I have decided that during our educational outreach we will have unloaded weapons with both trigger and breech locks securely affixed. In other words, the firearms we intend on carrying for symbolic speech will be rendered absolutely non-functional.

If you are a member of the PSU community and our outreach event has caused you concern, I do genuinely apologize for any uneasy feelings you have. I would respectfully ask you to consider the fact that every day in New Hampshire you live with, work with, and attend school in close proximity to law-abiding individuals who have decided to be proactive in ensuring their (and your) safety.

As we learned from the tragedy at Virginia Tech, criminals and murderers don’t care about the law. This is about you, your right to protect yourself, and the government failing to follow the rules.

As members of a free society, it is important that everyone understands the rights we have and the obligations that come with those rights. We encourage those who feel uncomfortable with firearms to come out and discuss our exercise of our fundamental freedoms – we have no agenda other than to expose the unlawful conduct of the University System of New Hampshire and educate our fellow Granite Staters about their basic rights.

    Bradley; Appears a little honey coating, that’s O.K. People have to realize not to have fear. The issue here is Rights and Oath of Office to Protect everyone’s Rights. Any official that would enforce this campus directive with force is in violation Oath of Office, and should be removed. Your Rights have to be protected not the directive. People have a choice either move to where you’ll constantly have a boot in your face or work to take back America. Make America the shining light of the World. Liberty. People have to realize the more you disagree with a position, the more you have to fight for that person’s right to express it. Whether gay rights, tea party, occupiers, arms rights, ruination of America via of wars, abolition and any other position for or against. If the majority cannot protect the rights of one individual, we should turn the country over to the Goblist/Communist. I sure in hell will not allow that to happen.

    I advise all persons concerned here to get the united States of America Constitution and the New Hampshire State Constitution. Study and learn how to apply it. Also learn nullification. (note I used united States of America, not United States, there’s a difference, study).

    I will reiterate my position, ‘all gun laws pertaining to infringement of arms, are Illegal‘.

    May I suggest everyone shake Brad’s hand or a big hug for protecting our Rights and Freedom. I will enclose a fantastic statement by Bradley, regarding medicinal marijuana when he was a LEO. This statement will illustrate Bradley’s Patriotism as an American.

    In closing to all commenter’s, do you know the owners of the Federal Reserve? They control your life from cradle to grave, and your concerns are about arms on campus, just amazing. Assuming you don’t know who the owners are.

    NH Cop Refusing to Arrest Medical Cannabis Users!

    Filed under: National, News, Police, noncooperation — Ian at 12:25 am on Monday, January 18, 2010

    From Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Member Brad Jardis, a 10+ year veteran of the NH police force (and probably the most courageous cop I’ve ever known):

    Hello everyone.

    As you all know, I have been cleared for duty and will be reporting back shortly. I have been re-reading the NH Constitution carefully so that when I return I am well versed.

    I have come to a conclusion in reading the document I am sworn to defend: It is unconstitutional for the state to take action against a sick person who decides to use Marijuana to treat a medical condition.

    I will never arrest a person who possesses, uses, grows marijuana to treat a medical condition……. and neither should any other NH LEO who intends follow his or her oath. I won’t even take it from them.

    Legal argument in support of my declaration (quite simple):

    -/-

    1. Short of fellating the entire NH General Court and the Governor, political activists in this state have done everything to present FACTUAL evidence to support allowing sick people to use a natural substance to ease suffering. I personally have begged the General Court to not make me arrest sick people.

    2. Chief DEA Administrative Law Judge Francis Young ruled in 1988:

    “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known. It would be unreasonable, arbitrary, and capricious for the DEA to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of the substance.”

    3. Fourteen other states (and DC) allow the sick and dying to use Marijuana as medicine to alleviate suffering.

    4. Article 10 of the NH Constitution reads as follows:

    Quote

    [Art.] 10. [Right of Revolution.] Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.

    5. Government prosecuting a sick person for using a scientifically proven safe substance does not “benefit,” or “protect(…),” any community.

    6. Government prosecuting a sick person for using a scientifically proven safe substance IS in-fact the emolument of a class of men: pharmaceutical companies. This is proven by evidence of pharmaceutical companies fighting against medical Marijuana laws. You cant grow Oxycontin in your living room, now can you?

    7. A sick person continuing to suffer because a state law forbids them to use a scientifically proven safe therapeutic substance IS “absurd.”

    8. A sick person continuing to suffer because a state law forbids them to use a scientifically proven safe therapeutic substance IS “slavish.”

    9. A sick person continuing to suffer because a state law forbids them to use a scientifically proven safe therapeutic substance IS “destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.”

    Conclusion: I won’t do it. Ever. Take your unconstitutional law and stuff it.

    You know who I am, you know where I work, and I am not afraid of any of you. My word, my oath, is to the people: not the tyrants who want them to suffer.

  2. Bradley; it is so informative to read about your literalist, free stater views of the US Constitution.One of the core principles of our founding fathers was to innunciate that not all forms of speech are constitutionally protected. For example, you have no "right" to yell "fire" in a crowded theatre. That is precisely what you and your fellow free staters are doing with your actions on Friday. You are not wanted by the vast majority of PSU students, and your actions are NOT designed to educate but,like the rest of you open carry free staters are designed to instill fear in a community that is supposed to be a peaceful and scholarly environment. I challenege you to a public debate on the USNH policy at a time and place of your choosing. You may even bring your gun as long as the debate does not take place on a University campus or school.

  3. "…innunciate"…???…WTF…???….dude is a college student…???…WTF…???…

    FAIL, kid!…

    (…i THINK he MIGHT mean "enunciate", but THAT'S not right either…

    WTF?…….)

    🙁

  4. You would think students going to university on the backs of gun loving New Hampshire taxpayers could at least respect their wishes.

  5. Eric, you wrote:

    "One of the core principles of our founding fathers was to innunciate that not all forms of speech are constitutionally protected. For example, you have no “right” to yell “fire” in a crowded theatre."

    But that makes no sense at all. The example of yelling fire in a crowded theater wasn't even invented until the early 1900s, long after our founding fathers were dead, if I remember correctly. And it's been criticized as an inaccurate analogy to most cases that people try to apply it to. (Carrying a gun onto a college campus won't cause people to be trampled in a reckless stampede. In fact, it won't cause anyone to be hurt in any way.)

    The idea that this was a "core principle" of our founding fathers is simply bizarre. You should count yourself as lucky that he isn't debating you.

    "your actions are NOT designed to educate but,like the rest of you open carry free staters are designed to instill fear in a community that is supposed to be a peaceful and scholarly environment."

    Really? I mean, come on, it's an unloaded weapon. If fear is instilled into you by unloaded weapons, then you need to grow up.
