As was reported last night of Sheriff John Cooke of Weld County Colorado, 340 sheriffs around the country are refusing to enforce gun laws they say are unconstitutional, according to a story appearing in CNS News today.
The CNS story says, “The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) has a running tally of all the sheriffs across the nation that have joined together to defend the Constitution.” The story reports that 15 sheriffs associations and 340 sheriffs have stated they will not enforce new gun laws they say are unconstitutional.
Calling the new gun laws passed by the Colorado legislature on Friday “unenforceable,” Weld County Sheriff John Cooke said his office would not enforce them, as reported today on FoxNews.com. The bills, which are expected to be signed soon by the state's Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper, require background checks on the private transfer and sale of firearms and limit magazine capacity at 15 rounds. Cooke said the proposed new gun laws provide a “false sense of security” and will not be enforced.
Speaking of those proposed gun laws, “They’re feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable,” said Sheriff Cooke.
Resistance to enforcing new gun laws by county sheriffs is just one form of resistance by local and county public officials against new allegedly unconstitutional laws being enacted at the state and federal level.
The opposition to new gun laws by these two Colorado sheriffs is part of a larger trend of law enforcement officials and other local and county public servants who have announced they will not enforce new gun laws from state governments and the federal government that are in violation of the Second Amendment.
Political battles of this type of Second Amendment-protected gun rights are just one front of the ongoing Red-Blue political civil war that includes battles over other issues such as property rights vs. environmental regulations, states vs. federal government battles over the enforcement and implementation of various provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (known as ObamaCare) and other elements of the public policy initiatives the White House is working on implementing.
