There's a forest in Nottingham that's missing its sheriff.

Inspired by the Idaho sheriff who intends to enforce new gun regulations (http://www.idahostatesman.com/2013/01/25/2425376/i-uphold-all-of-the-constitution.html?fb_action_ids=10151237397207636&fb_action_types=og.recommends&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=2883814812375820), I wrote to our sheriff and asked him to reconsider his intent to ignore the President's initiatives.

He wrote back:

...May I suggest you read the United States Supreme Court decision Printz v United States 1997. The Supreme Court ruled that it is Unconstituional for the Federal Government to compel local law enforcement to enforce federal gun laws. In other words we are not agents of the federal government; therefore do not enforce federal laws.

I assume from your letter that you want me to follow the Supreme Court's decision and uphold the Constitution by not enforcing federal gun laws. Like you said I took an oath the defend the Constitution in its entirety and you do not what (sic) me to break that oath!


Yeah, the attitude was dripping from the envelope. By the way, he has announced his intention to run for re-election, never mind that the county attorney has advised him that term limits prohibit his doing so. Do I need to mention that he's a Republican?

1. On the other hand

this clown would undoubtedly be happy as can be to enforce federal laws regarding illegal immigration. Ain't the locals' business, but you just know he'd be the first one to encourage militias to take action and then back them up 100%.
