Her cases often involve the Second Amendment at the intersection of privacy, due process, equal protection, property, and freedoms of speech and religion. She has been the leader in the fight against the New York Safe Act and views the Second Amendment as the modern civil rights movement.as a unique combination of expertise, perfectly suited for law and public policy analysis. Paloma is also the architect of the “Civil Rights Restoration Act,” a new bill that was recently introduced in the NYS Assembly and Senate. The bill is supported by the newly-formed chapter of Gun Owners of America – New York as well as the New York Oath Keepers and it is designed to secure equal rights and privileges for gun owners in New York that are enjoyed by everyone else.
NEW YORK CONSTITUTIONAL SHERIFF AWARD
Given to a New York State Sheriff who understands the grave implications of our eroding Constitutional protections under both our federal and state governments, including fighting against Second Amendment attacks under the New York Safe Act and fighting the designation of organizations like the New York Oath Keepers as right wing extremists simply because they oppose unconstitutional laws and acts by the federal and state governments.
Award Recipient: SHERIFF GREGORY R. SEELEY
Sheriff Gregory R. Seeley is a lifelong resident of Greene County and joined the Greene County Sheriff's Office in 1984. Beginning his career as a deputy, he advanced through civil service testing to the rank of sergeant and later to the rank of lieutenant. He is the first deputy in Greene County history to work his way through the ranks to sheriff. Sheriff Seeley has been a strong supporter of the New York Oath Keepers since we were formed in 2009. He is an unwavering and vocal proponent of the Second Amendment who stands behind every American's right to bear arms. Seeley has stated, many times, publicly that he stands with the people and will do everything in his power to uphold their constitutional rights. Sheriff Seeley said that as Sheriff he represents all the people in Greene County and he has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New York, and he will continue to protect the rights of all citizens, including those rights guaranteed by those constitutions.
KARL MARX AWARD
Given to an individual who by his or her actions has done more to destroy the unalienable rights of the people, divide America by class and race, to destroy the constitutional limits on government as outlined in the U.S. Constitution, while at the same time implementing many of tenets of the ‘Communist Manifesto' (as written by Karl Marx and Frederich Engels) into our Republic.
