Two Nevada counties, Elko and Lander, are now calling themselves “Constitutional Counties.” Elko County approved the resolution on June 2, and Lander County a similar one the month before. Though the resolutions are just that- resolutions, not laws – it speaks to the mindset of many counties across the nation. They feel that the Bill of Rights should be protected whether the Federal Government likes it or not.

The people of these United States are, and have a right to be, free and independent, and these rights are derived from the ‘Law of Nature and nature’s God. As such, they must be free from infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, unreasonable searches and seizures, capricious detainments and every other natural right whether enumerated or not, pursuant to the 9th Amendment.

Excerpt from Elko County Resolution

The Elko County board of commissioners unanimously approved the measure.

The document, approved unanimously by Elko’s County Commission, also reaffirms the U.S. Constitution’s 10th Amendment protecting states from federal usurpation of unauthorized powers.

Next, the resolution notes that no federal agency can create policies that supersede the Constitution and that the executive branch of government is not authorized to make law under America’s system of government…

At the top of the list are orders infringing on the rights to freedom of speech, religion, assembly, and other liberties guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.

Other acts that will not be tolerated include efforts to register firearms, gun confiscation, violations of privacy or property rights without a warrant, detainment or arrest without following constitutional procedures, and more.

The Epoch Times

Sheriff Richard Mack, founder of the CSPOA- Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association- stated that these actions are “just the beginning” of liberty breaking out across the nation. Sheriffs from all over Nevada attended a rally in Lander County to encourage participation in the Constitutional County movement.

… governors across the nation told us we could not leave our houses or gather with our friends. They told us to close our churches and avoid celebrations for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And most of us obeyed.

The Fifth Amendment, meanwhile says we shall not be deprived of our property without the due process of law. But the governors ordered us to close our businesses and most obeyed.

We should not have obeyed, We should have revolted. Adopting this resolution and joining the CSPOA is a first step in reclaiming our Republic and the God-given rights guaranteed by our Constitution.

Elko County Commissioner Rex Steninger

Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties have grown to over half the counties in the nation. With the addition of Texas and Missouri the count now stands at just over 55% of US counties.

The Constitutional Counties in Nevada are just the beginning. As it currently stands, “peaceful resistance” has broken out all over the country. Whether or not it remains that way is likely up to the Biden Administration.
