Letter to Maryland State Sherriffs Association
Below I am posting the letter that I have sent to the Maryland Sheriffs Association regarding their Oath of office to uphold the Constitution and urging them to defend the right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights against any unconstitutional law which infringes on that right.
Maryland Sheriffs’ Association
Sheriff Michael A. Lewis
410 Naylor Mill Road Salisbury, MD 21803
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Dear Sheriff Lewis,
In light of President Obama’s intent to infringe the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Citizens across America by way of Executive Orders, I am calling on you and the members of the Maryland Sheriffs’ Association to follow the lead and example of the Utah Sheriffs’ Association in defending the Constitutional rights of Maryland’s Citizens.
I have enclosed a copy of the letter dated 1/17/2013 and sent by the Utah Sheriffs’ Association to President Barack Obama, whereby they refuse to deny the Citizens of their state, the Constitutional protections of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and are prepared to take all action to defend those rights.
It is my hope that the duly elected Sheriffs will remember and honor their vow to uphold the Constitution, rather than enforce any unconstitutional laws stripping Americans of their rights.
On behalf of the Citizens of the State of Maryland,
Delegate Don Dwyer, Jr.

The Law- a phamplet written in 1850 by Frederic Bastiat, two years after the Third French Revolution. In The Law, Bastiat says “each of us has a natural right – from God – to defend his person, his liberty, and his property”. The State is a “substitution of a common force for individual forces” to defend…

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling yesterday could have major implications on Maryland’s concealed carry law. The ruling opens the door for a potential Supreme Court Case regarding the Constitutionality of concealed carry permitting. Last year, the 4th District Court of Appeals struck down a US District Court ruling that Maryland’s requirement to show…

The policies and actions of the Governor and Democratic Controlled State Legislature has resulted in not only loss of individual liberty, but also the loss of economic advantage.

State legislatures have begun to decriminalize marijuana. This is very important, even if you don’t support marijuana use, personally. This issue goes beyond simple decriminalization of marijuana because it is not only about the freedom to make your own choices as to what you eat, drink or smoke, it is about liberty and the return…

There is a great cry from many well intentioned citizens to petition to referendum, SB281. Although well intentioned, this would be the wrong thing to do. Maryland stands at a crossroads of an epic issue. Will we govern as a Constitutional Republic or simply a hyper-democracy? Unfortunately, the mere act of taking SB281 to referendun…
