If you thought that the Wild West was no more — think again! Some county sheriffs in New Mexico are taking a strong stand against what they consider to be unfair gun management laws, even refusing to implement them in many cases.
Washington State and a few counties in Oregon are also battleground states in this particular war, as local law enforcement professionals refuse to kowtow to the whims of liberal lawmakers. While these individuals continue to fight the good fight for their constituents’ Second Amendment rights, it remains to be seen whether they’ll be successful or simply thrown in jail.
These new laws are called a “gun grab” by some sheriffs, noting that Democrats are rapidly passing gun protection laws that they might not even understand. The majority of New Mexico sheriffs are actively against the new guidelines and regulations, causing them to dig in their heels and refuse to take actions that the law requires until they are ordered to do so by the court. Elected officials — primarily Democrats — in these states are coming down fiercely on our strong law enforcement personnel, warning legal action and a showdown if the sheriffs don’t fall into line with the new laws.
While the liberal “Sanctuary Cities” were broadly mocked by loyal Republicans, it seems like they’re not afraid to turn this concept around on the liberals who started it. So-called “Second Modification Sanctuary Cities” are being considered in several states, where individuals can safely enjoy their Second Amendment rights without the fear of attack from federal lawmakers in their expanding attack on gun owners and buyers. Many gun advocates find it amusing that smart conservatives are finding ways to fight back with the enemy’s ammunition, so to speak.
Even as there is controversy around enforcing the newly-created gun laws around the country, lawmakers are scrambling in an attempt to pass as many more laws as they can before Democrats once again lose power. While federal law enforcement personnel commonly overlooked “paperwork” gun crimes — where individuals didn’t quite complete all the required paperwork to obtain their firearm — these persnickety laws are some key items that lawmakers are targeting and requiring local law enforcement personnel to prosecute. This takes time and manpower away from prosecuting real criminals, who are breaking into houses, committing theft and murder and generally becoming a blight on society.
Unfortunately, it’s not likely that gun control legislation will go away any time in the near future. All we can hope is that these patriotic sheriffs will continue to stand up to “The Man” and take the brunt of the heat to protect our Second Amendment rights until updated legislation can be passed. Until that time, there is likely to be a fair bit of conflict between local law enforcement and state government in the coming years.
