As usual, it is the local population that must stand up and fight tyranny at the state and federal level. Sheriffs in New York state are not hiding the fact they will not be enforcing state law restricting firearm magazine capacity to seven rounds.
The New York State Sheriffs Association and five individual sheriffs have joined a court effort to block enforcement of new bullet limits for magazines and firearms restrictions.
Schoharie County Sheriff Tony Desmond said he has no intention of enforcing the law, and that his office won’t do anything that would cause law-abiding citizens to turn in their weapons or arrest them for possessing firearms.
“I’m not going back on my personal conviction,” he said. Residents have told him this is what they want, he said, and “I’ve stood up for them, and I will continue to do so.”
Amen brother. Of course, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is pissed off.
Talking to reporters Wednesday, Cuomo said law enforcement’s job is to enforce all the laws, which are enacted by the Legislature. To do otherwise “would obviously be chaos” and “a dangerous and frightening precedent.”
Oh really? When Cuomo comes out bitching and moaning about the Obama administration’s Executive Branch refusing to execute the laws as enacted by Congress and signed by the/a president, maybe he’ll have a leg to stand on. Until then, shut up. The federal government has been selectively enforcing laws for years based on politics, at least the sheriffs in New York are basing their decisions on what’s right and the 2nd Amendment … you know, that “shall not be infringed” stuff.
