With all the talk the president has done about implementing new gun control laws, we can now see a trend beginning in the U.S. in a way that perhaps he, or those anti-gun Congressmen did not expect. Do they understand how many people will stand strong for the Second Amendment?
Today, Jan. 16, 2013, CNN reports that an Oregon sheriff has made the statement, saying he will not enforce any federal regulation that President Barack Obama lays out in his package of gun control proposals Wednesday.
The Sheriff’s name is Tim Mueller, and he is the Sheriff of Linn County, Oregon. He says that he will refuse to enforce any federal regulation,
"offending the constitutional rights of my citizens," according to the CNN report
But lets not stop there. A second Oregon Sheriff has now joined the chorus. The Sheriff of Crook County, Oregon, Jim Hensley says he would refuse to enforce any new federal gun law he believes is unconstitutional, according to ABCNews. He sent the same letter to the V.P. as did Sheriff Mueller.
This action in Oregon is on the heels of a Texas legislator, Republican Representative Steve Toth, who says he plans to introduce a state bill called the Firearms Protection Act. The bill also addresses any new laws that limit the size of gun magazines.
Oregon’s Sheriff Mueller posted a letter he sent to the vice president regarding the issue of gun control and his feelings, on his departments Facebook account which immediately garnered over 40,000 ‘Likes’.
Some say that ‘local’ officials have no say in any enforcement action by the feds. However, others say that it is still the right of the state to decide which federal laws will be enforced. The fed’s recently challenged the Arizona over an immigration law in that state, and Arizona won much of their case in federal court.
It seems that the backlash has already started for Obama. There are some who feel it will get worse, and that many more local and state governments will join the force to secure the Second Amendment.
Regarding the throngs shouting for Obama’s impeachment, even Ed Meese, the former AG said,
“It would not be legal. It would not be constitutional. And, indeed, if he tried to override the Second Amendment in any way, I believe it would be an impeachable offense,”
The battle begins!
