Sheriffs Are Refusing To Enforce New Gun Laws

New gun control laws are unconstitutional, say scores of sheriffs throughout the country, and they are either refusing to enforce the statutes or have signaled that enforcement will be a very low priority, The New York Times reports.

In Colorado, a law passed by the Legislature that requires universal background checks and bans ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds is being challenged in a lawsuit by all but seven of the state's 62 elected sheriffs who say it's a violation of Second Amendment rights.

New laws in other states which were brought about as a result of the Newtown, Conn. school shootings, are also facing resistance, the Times reported Sunday.

Wicomico's Sherriff Mike Lewis is on the list of 400+ Sherriff's who will refuse to enforce gun laws that he sees as unconstitutional.

as far as I'm concerned, ALL gun laws are unconstitutional.

Shall not be infringed, means shall not be infringed.

That does not mean what is PC, popular, common sense, or what can be passed.

To me it is very simple. You want a gun, you own a gun. No license, no registration, no background check.

You might want to talk to the SCOTUS 7:47.

Obama completely disregards the laws so why shouldn't they?
