th

County Sheriffs Can Block Federal Gun Control

Posted on: January 3rd, 2013

President Obama has given his comic sidekick the task of pushing gun control measures through Congress. Democrats and some liberal Republicans are calling for more gun control after the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Some state and municipal politicians, like the #1 anti-gun person in the nation – New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, are also calling for more control.

But did you know that no matter what gun control laws are passed by the federal government, they can only be enforced in your area if your county sheriff allows them to be.

Most people, including politicians fail to realize that the ultimate legal authorities in the land are the county sheriffs. This was established from the time of the Founding Fathers and upheld by the US Supreme Court in the 1997 case of Printz v. United States. Initially, the case was Mack v. United States, but by the time it reached the Supreme Court it was renamed.

      Have you ever noticed the propaganda that is pushed through Hollywood? Nearly every cop type show (law and order, Numbers, Criminal Minds, etc.) make it look like they have jurisdiction over local law enforcement, and most of the public and local law enforcement believe it!

      • Sandra Lee Smith

        I have, and as you say; it’s propaganda that has been being taught for decades; it goes back to before the ’60s, not just Hollywood; I believe most of their training facilities are also teaching that.

          the awesome power of this nation lies in OUR HANDS and the local munies. Federalism is the back bone of America;; states rights.

          • Sandra Lee Smith

            Federalism with a cap is INCORPORATED DC; federalism with a LOWER case is what our Founders intended. I realize the difference seems miniscule, but it’s the difference between the dictatorship we now have, and the loose federal leadership of the several states our Constitution intended, in a Constitutional REPUBLIC! Did you know that our Constitution was originally titled the Constitution of the united States for America, NOT the Constitution of the United States of America {pay CLOSE attention to the caps and prepositions}? And that our Constitution, including its title was ALTERED in the late 1860s and early 1870s by the incorporation of DC, and the Congress of the time under the leadership of one Thaddeus Stevens, who also led the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson, for opposing him?

            This is why you assert your original Constitutional status, otherwise it’s assumed you fall under the latest revision. Same with states, hellifornia has 2 and both posted as law but you have a choice which you rather be ruled under or protected by

        #1 Why would you be watching such crap in the first place?
        # 2 Everybody already knows the “networks” are an enemy of we the people!

        • Rattlerjake

          I didn’t say I watch them, I rarely do. Those were just examples, even most movies that contain law enforcement related material are the same.

  • CaptTurbo

    We need a few thousand Sheriff Arpios to step forward to keep their oaths. Unfortunately the feds have bought off most local law enforcement agencies.

  • Jayzee

    More people are killed by drunk drivers than hand guns but you dont see the liberals screaming to eliminate alcohol and cars !

        You can add many congressional names to the sots list (both parties). I emphasize people rather than alcohol are to blame for DUIs. I drink but in moderation so I know it can be done !!

        • Flybob

          Gawd, I LOVE the comments but all of you are wrong and I can prove it. People that kill with guns are for the most part destitute and have no funds for the justice system to usurp. Drunk drivers on the other hand are otherwise pretty responsible for the most part and have means or they will find them to defend themselves. They NEED their drivers license and WILL find a way to pay their way out of trouble. It’s ALL about the money. LAWYERS ARE destroying our country! THEY are the head of the largest wealth redistribution scheme in the history of the world. From US to THEM! Remember that most politicians ARE lawyers and above the law. MANY are caught DUI and never pay a dime to go on in their lives. Lawyers making laws is DEFINITELY a direct conflict of interests. Wolf guarding the hen house. WAKE UP AMERICANS!!! LET”S ROLL!

      • molly1699

        STUPIDITY AND PEOPLE WHO DO NOT GIVE A RIP!!!!! KILL!

      • Sandra Lee Smith

        If drivers were taught from the start that they’re “picking up a lethal weapon” every time they start their cars, we MIGHT have some more responsible drivers, but I doubt it these days, because they’re NOT teaching any form of personal accountability any longer. Neither will those EVER acknowledge it’s the HUMAN, not the inanimate object used, that MURDERS, and that is a distinction from killing, per se. Many things kill, randomly and indiscriminately, but not so many act to MURDER. These acts are malicious and intentional, and HUMAN generated; regardless of the weapon or tool used.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      WHAT??? Inconvenience them???? Are you mad??? They don’t believe in personal accountability, so of course they’re not chasing after alcohol or cars!

    • Kenneth Russell

      We KILL millions of babies every year, through Planed Parent Hood facilities all across America, but no one is mentioning that! This Administration is worst than that of Hitlers!

    • schr8er

      Because that would cause “shame” on Teddy Kennedy on BOTH counts

  • john

    …never happen in ca. too many nazies!!

      The Sheriff of Sacramento County has commented that his staff is unable to protect the citizens of the county due to budget limitations so he considers it reasonable for the citizens to be armed.

      • John Gould

        Idaho is my state sense 1936

  • guest

    And not just gun control. It’s effectively impossible for ANY Federal crime to be prosecuted if county sheriffs refuse to allow acronym agencies to operate within their borders. If a Sheriff won’t allow Feds in to arrest someone, the people within those county borders are effectively “free” from federal constraints. Think of all the product labels in hardware stores that say “It is a violation of federal law to use this product for purposes other than those intended by the manufacturer.”

  • DEANS

    MAY I SUGGEST THAT EACH OF US CONTACT THE SHERIFF OF THE COUNTY WE LIVE IN AND GET AN ANSWER AS TO WHETHER THAT SHERIFF WOULD STAND BETWEEN THE FEDERAL GUN GRAB AND OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS GIVEN BY THE 2ND AMMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Somehow a list of the counties and the names of the sheriffs and the sheriff’s position need to be posted for all to read!

  • DAVID PEACOCK

    obama’s communist government will be crushed from the individual and our love of our freedoms;; he WILL NOT smother us in federal mandates and make it stick.

  • Divacantare

    Yes, but the feds will try to change that too! They already showed how they can “buy” one judge in the Obamacare issue. Obamacare was deemed a “tax” levy and yet the Supreme court upheld the Bill which should have been struck down. Justice Roberts who normally votes conservative was most likely “bought” to approve the Health Care Bill.

    Here’s a feel good story :)

  • watchdogman

    Take Idaho Senator Crapo..Mormon fellow and now avowed never to drink again after his recent DUI in Virginia…this man is a fool twice. First a Senator wearing his cloak of Senator and the cloak of Mormonism, the non-drinking religion…Made a fool of himself twice..
