Half of this country may be content to be lorded over by looting authoritarians openly hostile to the freedoms our forefathers fought to secure. But the other half is still America:
Linn County [Oregon] Sheriff Tim Mueller wrote a letter to Biden Monday saying his department will not enforce any new gun laws it considers unconstitutional.
Mueller said politicians are “attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims” by supporting laws that would harm law-abiding Americans. The sheriff said he took an oath to support the Constitution, and laws preventing citizens from owning certain semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines would violate their rights.
Sheriff Mueller makes an excellent point:
“We’re restricted and prohibited from enforcing all types of federal laws, including immigration laws. It would be unreasonable for anyone to think that I would enforce a federal firearms law.”
Meanwhile, in Texas:
Republican state Rep. Steve Toth plans to introduce a bill that would make it illegal to enforce in the state any federal laws restricting semi-automatic firearms or the size of gun magazines.
Toth told 1200 WOAI that the bill would also call for felony charges to be brought against federal officials who attempt to enforce any such rules.
For the next few years, every safeguard we have against federal tyranny will be put to the test. This prominently includes state and local officials, who will have to decide whether they serve Obama or America.
The Oath Keepers have already made their choice.
