Those of you who often read this blog will know that I have long been a critic of US Customs and Border Protection. My critique has always been their authority to force people to answer questions in light of the 5th Amendment when entering our country.
Last year I even campaigned for High Sheriff in Coos County, NH and spent considerable time talking about the issue.
Last week I dropped my suit against the United States Government because I’ve been convinced that their legal position is correct.
WHEN YOU ARE AT THE BORDER DEALING WITH US CUSTOMS YOU ARE NOT IN THE UNITED STATES. YOU >MUST< DISCLOSE EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE WHILE OUTSIDE OF THE COUNTRY OR YOU CAN AND WILL FACE SERIOUS LEGAL PENALTIES.
IF YOU CITE MY CASE OR ACTIVISM AT THE BORDER AS A REASON NOT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS I WILL HELP THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IF THEY CHOOSE TO PROSECUTE YOU FOR NOT ANSWERING QUESTIONS.
The lower (or any) border of the United States is just that: a special zone where the 5th Amendment doesn’t apply.
US CBP and US Attorney in AZ: My sincere apologies for the legal headaches I caused with this issue. I was wrong.
It allows people who have been found by a court to be mentally defective, people who have committed multiple violent felonies, and people who are illegal drug users/addicts to legally carry firearms. It is worded in such a clever way so that most people who don’t understand the law would gloss right over it.
The catch is the guns have to belong to the Government.
Our national policy is that it is okay to be legally crazy, a multiple violent felon, and to be a user of illegal drugs while carrying a gun… so long as you work for the government.
I just saw something this morning in my Facebook news-feed that made me smile:
The controlling party in the NH House of Representatives may be able to squelch a mandated committee, but when they do, The People will form their own.
That’s probably why Article 32 came immediately after Article 31.
The former Governor may not have been a libertarian, but by putting his personal reputation and seal of approval on RSA 519:23-a, he gave the libertarian community in New Hampshire a huge win.
519:23-a – Right of Accused
In all criminal proceedings the court shall permit the defense to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy.
History has shown that nullification has helped end chattel slavery, alcohol prohibition, and Jim Crow… and jury nullification is now the law-of-the-land in the Granite State.
Thank you for that one, Governor Lynch.
This blogger hopes you find a pleasantly lowered blood-pressure as you leave public office. 😎
