Dear Editor:

Thank you to our county commissioners for unanimously passing the Gun Rights Resolution, which reinforces  all of our freedoms under the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.  Our community owes a debt of gratitude to Michael Whiting, Steve Wadley and Clifford Lucero for taking a stand for liberty.  We appreciate the assistance of everyone involved in drafting the resolution as well as the great patriots living in Archuleta County whom have given of their time, efforts,and resources to creating Liberty Zones in Pagosa Springs and surrounding communities.  The fires of liberty are burning and spreading throughout our land.  Let’s fan the flame of freedom by refusing tyrannical un-constitutional orders being enacted at both the federal and state level. Yes, we can create Liberty Zones all over our nation by understanding the bedrock principles herein:  “… This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”  (Abraham Lincoln — The Gettysburg Address)
