    I would be proud to promote Michigan Open Carry.
    I am open for any questions from this group of patriots.
    Blessings,
    Thomas matos

    Campaign Announcement
    Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Mathia announces her choice for Michigan's next Lt. Governor.

    Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Mathia announced today her choice for the office of the Lt. Governor for the State of Michigan.
    Thomas Matos is a Michigan native. He is the grandson of a Portuguese immigrant. He is a former police officer, and ARMY National Guard veteran. Thomas is also an Oath Keeper, a member of Michigan Open Carry, and an NRA instructor. He is a dedicated family man with his loving wife of 16 years, Cathern Annette Matos, and four wonderful children. He is college educated with a degree in PC Maintenance and Repair.
    Thomas Matos has a distinguished history of defending personal liberties. His most recent endeavor was the petitioning of the City of Alpena to remove several unlawful gun ordinances that were in violation of State and federal law;

    I find it unimaginable that multiple bodies of professed representatives could overlook unconstitutional laws for almost 40 years”, Thomas said! “ Just what exactly did the City Attorneys do for 40 years? The ordinance makes it perfectly clear that only an agent of the city, state, and federal government has a proposed unalienable right to self defense, and that is in direct violation of the law of the land and of the oath they swore! It's one thing to omit that it fell through the cracks, but It's another matter entirely to willfully allow it to remain as the law without lawful premise.”

    Thomas Matos is also concerned about the sovereign state of Michigan;

    The transfer of Michigan's sovereignty in 2007 to the federal government by Executive Order is described by our forefathers as an act of treason. It would be just as treasonous for the next Executive Officer to allow it to remain. As an Oath Keeper, I am charged with upholding that oath when I have the power to do so. Stacey Mathia has made it perfectly clear that, as Governor of Michigan, she will revoke any Executive Order compromising Michigan's sovereignty, and I believe her!”

    My supporters should also be aware of where Thomas stands on the issue of taxes, and the safety of our peace officers and children;

    The Michigan Business Tax must go and that is not negotiable! Also, freeze State hiring! It also makes me grieve to see the mountain of taxpayer dollars being funneled into the plethora of wasteful State programs like mental health counseling for child molesters and rapists. This is a disease of the heart and not the brain, and I know this first hand. No amount of money can change that! When this despicable act occurs, a twisted adult comes away satisfied, and an innocent child comes away wounded for life, if the child comes away at all.These issues not only effect the citizens of Michigan, but the very safety of those peace officers who are charged with the duty to find and bring these people to justice. I have arrested violent child molesters before and I can tell you they would surely stab a peace officer in the back if given the opportunity. Our peace officers need the tools and support of the Executive Office if we are to remove this scourge from society, and it begins by removing unconscionable bureaucracies that coddle those who harm our children and burden the taxpayer. Stacey Mathia will protect our children!”

    I am proud to have chosen Thomas Matos for the Office of the Lt. Governor of Michigan, and you can be proud too. We are a team! And we understand that when the employer hires two people for a job, they expect them both to work to earn their pay. The people of Michigan can rest assure that they will have a capable Lt. Governor with Thomas Matos in the Executive Office!
    Please join Thomas Matos as he speaks at the Tea Party Rally in Alpena on April 15th at 5pm, at the fountain in downtown Alpena, and support our bid to restore the Great State of Michigan.
    In freedom,
    Stacey Mathia

    Hey, i'd just settle for removal of PFZ's.. all the rest is icing on the cake to me. Cause you know, opening day is coming up, and I'm just much much more vulnerable to committing a crime because I'm in an entertainment facility seating over 2500.

    "Shall NOT be Infringed!" These words are so basic even a school child can understand them. I Open Carry without a ccw. I have dedicated my life to fighting infringements in personal liberties.

    i think that the NFA restrictions should be taken off,we already allow Full Auto,so why not also allow sbr/sbs and supressed to be owned?

    the uncased long arms i can deal without,i know we have a bad poaching problem as is.

    i support just aboutany person that believes that shall not be infringed means shall not be infringed!

    How is it we have a worse poaching situation than other states where they allow uncased long arm carry?

    Just food for thought!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    The 2nd Amendment is clear. Shall not be infringed means shall not be infringed. NFA weapons are chose by federal LEO's and their recommendations are made into law. It is clear they fear the people when they are in possession of NFA weapons, and that's the way the 2nd Amendment was supposed to be taken...as a threat to tyranny!

    This is not negotiable!

    Poaching and gathering are two separate animals all together. I fully support a hunters bill of rights. Every man has the right to gather for his family when his family needs food. I am not suggesting poaching here. Poaching is a greedy act for self gratification. Gathering is shopping. In these tough times, I believe men and women should be able to acquire a free hunting license if they meet the income requirements of poverty level. God gave us these animals for eating and not petting. I eat what I kill. Those who don't need prosecuting. They take from those of us who need the food.

    We also never seem to reward people for turning in poachers. When a poacher is prosecuted and found guilty, he is charged to pay restitution...TO THE STATE! This is so wrong on so many levels. The people own these animals.

    "Government of the people, by the people, and for the people."

    Somehow, the government gets this money and we still pay for license hikes. These license fees must be reduced. I could barely afford my RIGHT to hunt last year.

    A gun case never stopped a poacher from poaching. Gun cases protect guns...not animals. I think the requirement is unnecessary. The law does not say that the gun case is for keeping your gun clean and protected. It's because they fear your gun and don't want you to have access to it if you need it. Rarely are these laws for your protection. Kind of like gun free zones. It defies conscience!

    I like the very first sentence - very well-put.
    No one has ever walked away from a gunfight complaining that he brought too much ammo.

    I've lurked on this site for a few months. But now I have found the need to speak. Hello everyone.

    After the little bit of research I've been able to do, I feel that, on it's face, your platform (common sense) is what Michigan needs. I for one, will support your efforts to get into office. I don't have $$, but I do have time.

    We in Michigan need jobs, 1st & foremost. Being that neither of you are bought & paid for politicians tells me you have the integrity that this state is in desperate need of. Hopefully in the near future you will gain enough contributions to get the word out. I'm almost to the point of hitting the streets to spread the word & drum up some contributions, but I need some more info. Your stance on our unalienable rights are spot on with my beliefs. Sadly too many Americans think their rights come from a government entity.

    I for one, am beyond sick & tired of the political machine that is ruining this state & this country. I will be contacting Mrs. Mathia & yourself soon with some questions.
