Then, I would forever be on record as having a third degree felony which makes me look like a gang member or street thug. I could forget about ever becoming a math teacher one day.

Erik Johnson, Bristol To the editor, I commend and support Sheriff Finch for doing his duty and taking his sworn oath to the Constitution seriously in releasing Mr. Parrish unlike is unconstitutional and unjust and should not be enforced by any cop or prosecuted either. Nor should any juror convict for such a bogus law now. All those in law enforcement have discretion to do such, especially Court has also ruled the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments who are bound to comply with it under Article 6, the so called Supremacy clause. Failure to do so violates ones oath and renders them This is what the Kentucky Supreme Court once ruled on this matter which still rings true today despite what the politically correct crowd says: "For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. (from Bliss.v.Commonwealth Kentucky Supreme Court 1822) An unconstitutional act is void ab initio i.e. the moment it is signed into law. The void ab initio doctrine received its classic formulation not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protec is as no law. An offense created by it is not a crime. A conviction under it is not merely erroneous, but is illegal and void, and cannot be a legal If we stand for this miscarriage of justice in our county then we should change the county name to Tyranny.
