New Mexico Sheriffs Standing Tall

GOA member Dr. Ray Seidel alerted me to the stirring of freedom that is taking place in his village of Ruidoso, New Mexico.  I have already reported on the first battle with Mayor Ray Alborn and how he tried to impose an unconstitutional gun ban in the village.  To get the full story of what happened in Ruidoso, you can go here and listen to my first debriefing session with Seidel.

I recently interviewed Dr. Seidel a second time on my Gun Owners News Hour weekly radio program and asked him about several acts of local interposition in the surrounding counties — all of which underscores the importance of the office of the sheriff and the militia.

For example, over near Deming, New Mexico is the Gila National Forest.  The U.S. Forest Service wanted to make almost all of it off limits for people — until the militia of Luna County intervened.  They told the feds that they would resist any effort by the Forest Service to restrict access to visitors.  The result?  Visitors have continued to access all of the Gila National Forest!

In the Southeast corner of the state, many landowners have working oil wells on their property.  The EPA told the oil operators they would have to stop operating their wells because there was too much risk of harming the environment.  At a town hall meeting convened by the EPA, a woman in her 60s rose to address the feds.  She pointed out that her land had been in her family for over 200 years, and she was not about to let some official from an unconstitutional bureaucracy tell her what she could or could not do with her land.
