FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Glen Davis files as write-in candidate for Sheriff of Coconino County
June 12, 2012
FLAGSTAFF – Williams resident Glen Davis has filed as a write-in candidate for the office of Sheriff of Coconino County. Davis was born in Page, Arizona while his father worked on the Glen Canyon Dam. He grew up in Yuma, Arizona and returned to Coconino County after his Naval service.
Davis is a strong proponent of the Second Amendment---the personal right to bear arms and to self-defense.
“I was upset with the Justice Department conducting this Fast and Furious operation without even consulting the Mexican government. I object strenuously to selling arms to our enemies at all. I understand that the Bush administration did so with the consent of the Mexican government and I object to that. During the Bush operation, however, no Arizona citizen was killed. The Bush administration did not blame the firearms dealers in Arizona---putting one out of business.”
In addition Davis noted that the Justice Department put extra regulations on Arizona citizens buying guns. “Non-felons have a right to buy guns and ammunition without the permission of the government. The reporting requirement for persons buying more than one gun along the border States only is unconstitutional, in my opinion.
“I also remember Harold Fish who was railroaded into jail in Coconino for clearly defending his life because of a statute signed into law by Janet Napolitano. ”
“A lot of people seem concerned about my stand for constitutional government and constitutional law enforcement. I am not a police officer so I do not know the ins-and-outs of being a police officer,” Davis explained. “But I have studied the Arizona Revised Statute, I know how to read it and I know how to find court precedence to support an arrest if needs be.
“However, arrests and those decisions are made by the deputy in the field. The Sheriff administers the organization. My only concern is that the rights of the suspect and the citizens of Coconino county are adhered to. There is a county attorney to answer any questions I might have.
“What I do know is according to court decisions such as Warren v. D.C. and the Supreme Court decision of Castle Rock v. Gonzales, you have no constitutional right to police protection---even with a restraining order. It logically follows that you have a right to protect yourself against harm. In fact, A.R.S. Title 13, Chapter Four and section 3884 gives you that right.”
“Of course if you really want to send me to the seventeen-week course, by all means,” Davis quipped.
Davis became a candidate after several concerns about the federal government and their complete hostility to the Constitution of the United States.
“They complain about SB 1070 and won't secure the border. I met a former Democrat who changed to Republican after the passage of NDAA. She had a very good reason for being concerned. Her mother---who was in a wheelchair---was in a detention camp during World War II in Arizona and their family lost all of their property. There was an anti-NDAA bill by Representative Brenda Barton that was vetoed by the governor.”
“This legislature led by the likes Senator Sylvia Allen and Brenda Barton attempted to close our borders and enforce our Tenth Amendment rights. For example, they tried to pass SB 1083 which would have established an Arizona Defense Force with the authority to close the borders. The media, who obviously never read the bill, cried they were setting up 'vigilantes'.
“They are either ignorant or lying because a vigilante group is one that acts outside of the law and violates the constitutional rights of the suspect. I do not endorse or encourage vigilantes and I know of very few thinking people who do. The Defense Force would be acting within constraints of the law and the Constitution. But it was enough to cause House Speaker Andy Tobin to kill the bill in committee. I would like to set up a posse in Coconino which will also act within the law.”
Davis has an article in an upcoming issue of Survivalist magazine about the posse system. There is an article on his web site, as well.
Glen expressed concern about the governor vetoing HJR 2001 which objected to the use of foreign troops being used to confiscate guns under any United Nations treaty not ratified by the Senate. “There is Supreme Court precedence, such as the Wong case of 1898, which states that a treaty cannot violate the Constitution. Since any treaty which allows names of gun owners to be released to foreign governments or to limit guns owned by U.S. citizens violates the Second Amend, it violates the Constitution of the United States and cannot be enforced,” he said. “I would recommend that they object foreign troops on U.S. soil at all. Seems to me that they mentioned something about that in the Declaration of Independence.”
One of the complaints written in the Declaration was, “He [The King] is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.”
Davis also noted foreign troops training in Denver, Colorado. “I never thought I would see the day when the United States would allow Russian troops to train to 'fight terrorist'. You might recall that Janet Napolitano wrote a book about terrorist when she took over the Department of Homeland security. Just where are they gong to fight terrorism?”
“In February of 2008, Air Force General Gene Renuart signed a pact with Canadian Air Force Lieutenant General Marc Dumais which allows Canadian troops to enter the United States during 'civil disturbance'.”
“The United States has always taken care of its internal affairs and I do not see any reason to change. This is the reason that the founding fathers empowered to the people through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,” Glen said.
“The bottom line,” Davis said, “is that the role of the government, law enforcement, and especially the Sheriff is to protect the rights of the citizens. My basic rule is a quote by Thomas Jefferson, 'No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him'.”
