#1 More and more of this going on lately. Arizona wanted to enforce immigration laws but the federal government sued them not to. Now, the govmint wants sheriffs to enforce executive orders to enforce their gun-control EOs. Something is seriously wrong in the country.

#2 We will need a lot more sheriffs like these guys if it all begins to go seriously south. What is the law like where you live?

#3 For good or bad, the elected County Sheriff is 'The Law' in their county wielding authority over even Federal Officers. Some will be Leftist, some won't. Some will do O's bidding, some won't.

In the coming conflict, when things get HOT, sure is going to be interesting. I wouldn't want to be a Federal LEO of any stripe in any of the Red States. You can almost hear the knives being sharpened.

Nastiness this way comes.

#4 You can almost hear the knives being sharpened.

Not a wise thing to do.

For starters, you don't bring a knife to a gun fight. Especially if the fight is over the Second Amendment that says you have a right to owning a gun that you CAN bring to the gun fight.

#5 I'd say presently local law-enforcement (police and sheriffs) are professional and good people where I live. I was a private accident investigator before retirement and interacted with quite a few of them. The bad apples (very rarely this happens) tend to get sorted out. I couldn't say much about federal officers as I did not interact much with them.

#6 Just FYI Ptah, the knives aren't for the fight, they're for after when you're nailing up the "Example and Warning to others."

#7 Well, since its for teh Common Sense

“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”

#8 “Could the peaceable principle of the Quakers be universally established, arms and the art of war would be wholly extirpated: But we live not in a world of angels...I am thus far a Quaker, that I would gladly agree with all the world to lay aside the use of arms, and settle matters by negotiation: but unless the whole will, the matter ends, and I take up my musket and thank Heaven He has put it in my power.”
-Thomas Paine
