A RESOLUTION OF THE KEITH COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS AFFIRMING THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
WHEREAS, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that it is the right of the people to keep and bear arms, and that right shall not be infringed; and
WHEREAS, Article I, Section 1-1 of the Nebraska Constitution also provides that “All persons have certain inalienable rights; right to keep and bear arms, specifically “for security or defense for self, family, home and others, and for lawful common defense, hunting, recreational use and all other lawful purposes,” and such right shall not be infringed by the state or any subdivision thereof. To secure these right, and the protection of property, governments are instituted among people, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and
WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court in the District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U. S. 570 (2008) affirmed an individual’s right to “keep and bear arms,” as protected under the Second Amendment, is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment against the states; and
WHEREAS, the Supreme Court in McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U. S. 742 (2010) affirmed that the right of an individual to “keep and bear arms” as protected under the Second Amendment, is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment against the states; and
WHEREAS, Article I, Section I-7 of the Constitution of Nebraska provides that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated; and no warrant shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or thing to be seized.”; and
WHEREAS, Article I, Section I-21 of the Constitution of Nebraska provides that “The property of no persons shall be taken or damaged for public use without just compensation therefore”; and
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Keith County Board of Commissioners hereby declare that we support the rights and liberties of all County citizens guaranteed by the United States and Nebraska Constitutions.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Board affirms its support for the duly elected Sheriff of Keith County, Nebraska in the exercise of his sound discretion and affirms its resolve to support decisions by the Sheriff to defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Nebraska.
