Quote of the day - obeying laws

" I will say this much: no one will be permitted in my home without either my express permission, or a warrant. Period. Private property is private property, the Fourth Amendment remains on the books, and just as no one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law, no one is bound to obey an unconstitutional court ruling either."

- Linoge

Linoge is spot on here.  The recent Indiana Supreme Court ruling stating that I have no right to resist even unlawful forcible entry into my home by law enforcement is an affront to the supreme law of this country, the Constitution.  Had such a ruling come down here in Delaware it would not change the manner in which I chose to defend my home. I am not engaged in criminal activity and, as such, have no reason for anyone, cops or otherwise, to be breaking down the door.  If armed, masked thugs kick in your door at 2AM you react accordingly, not in accordance with what some pompous judge thinks.

If the Delaware Supreme court ruled that it was legal for the police to confiscate firearms from lawful owners without due process I would ignore that ruling as well.  My rights are my rights.  I retain them even if some moronic liberal judge concludes that, through "modern interpretation" they no longer exist.

This is a great statement (one I totally back) but you and I both know that law enforcement will do what they do, and regardless of what you say, they will enter your house, if you resist, they will arrest and incarcerate you, if you brandish a weapon, they will shoot to kill.

I agree that it sucks, but it's a reality. All of the "I know my rights" speeches in the world won't stop this from happening.

Sadly, our "I know my rights" speech must be belched from the barrel of a firearm before TPTB will stop treating us as chattel. I am so, so sad for our once glorious Republic. And my heart goes out, in advance, to the families of those future martyrs who will posthumously lead the charge back to freedom.

Bit late in the game, but thanks for the mention and linkage... I have no idea how any court could have ever thought this was a good idea, and we can only hope that our Supreme Court grows a brain in the near future and starts striking this idiocy down.

Our property is our property, and "law enforcement officers" kicking down doors and harassing citizens without the paperwork to support them was a reason this country came into existence in the first place.
