PA Police Chief: I'm Willing to Lose My Job for the Second Amendment

Gilberton, PA, Police Chief Mark Kessler was suspended after posting videos of himself shooting borough-owned automatic weapons and shouting obscenities about liberal attacks on the Second Amendment. And heading into the August 30 Gilberton Borough Council meeting–where he is expected to learn his professional fate–Kessler makes it clear he is willing to lose his job for the Second Amendment.

As time draws closer to the council meeting that could end his police career, Kessler says: “The support has been overwhelming, both national and international. I find it truly amazing how many people finally say, ‘You know what? This guy’s right.'”

In one of the video’s Kessler posted, he stands with an ‘assault rifle’ slung over his shoulder and reads a few pre-scripted words about Secretary of State John Kerry’s support of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty–the treaty which undermines the Second Amendment by giving the international body ruling authority over small arms in the U.S. 

Here’s what Kessler says in the video: “They’re at it again. They just don’t know when to quit. …Kerry says, ‘U.S. will sign U.N. treaty on arms regulations despite lawmaker’s opposition.'” Kessler then looks right into the camera and says, “Secretary of State of John Kerry, that piece of shit…who is he to decide what we can and can’t own? And fuck the U.N. Who are they to decide what we, the American people, can own?”

Kessler then adds: “I have a message to Kerry and to these $%#@suckers in the U.N., ….sign anything you want to sign, it’s not going to mean shit. It [doesn’t] mean shit to me.”

Kessler then screams the Gonzales battle cry, “Come and take it!” and turns away from the camera and opens full-auto fire into the hillside right behind him.

The man loves freedom and he does not want an international body taking it away by degrees. He says that if he loses his job for standing up for the Second Amendment he is “willing to pay that price.”
