On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, the Asheville Tea Party is sponsoring the public forum - The County Sheriff as Protector of Individual Freedom and The Constitution - with Oath Keeper Sheriff Chris Clinton and Freedom Forum Radio Host, Dr. Dan Eichenbaum.
The forum will be held at 7 P.M. at the Skyland Fire Department, 9 Miller Road, Skyland.
Dr Dan Eichenbaum, host of Dr Dan’s Freedom Forum and Freedom Forum Radio, and Oath Keeper Sheriff Chris Clinton, County Sheriff of Towns County, Georgia , will discuss the role of the county sheriff as the protector of constitutional rights when our freedoms are threatened by unconstitutional laws, regulations, and executive orders. Sheriff Clinton’s letter to the House and Senate leaders clarifies his position: http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2013/02/05/sheriff-chris-clinton-of-towns-county-georgia-letter-to-congress/
This forum has received enthusiastic support and attendance. There were two hundred and fifty in attendance at this forum in Cherokee County.
Audience participation will be a large part of the forum. Sheriffs and police chiefs from six counties have also been invited. We welcome their input. Asheville Tea Party Chair, Jane Bilello stated: “ In the present climate of gun control, national registration, and confiscation – clearly an assault on our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms - it is vital that the public participate and have a voice.”
