Everytime we make a post concerning gun control we get some snowflake jackass chime in with the typical , “wHo dO yOu tHiNk iS gOiNg tO tAke yOuR gUnS!” in the comments. Even after providing various examples of how not every law enforcement officer is going to break their oath and enforce an unconstitutional law.
Well folks here is yet another example illustrating just that. Sheriffs in 29 counties in new mexico are REFUSING to enforce unconstitutional guncontrol that is in violation of the second amendment.
CBS7 Reports that twenty-nine New Mexico sheriffs oppose several new gun control laws introduced by the New Mexico state legislature.
“You’re just taking guns out of law-abiding citizen’s hands,” Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton. “This is not going to affect the criminals out there. They’re going to be able to get guns and they do not follow the law.”
Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton is one of dozens of sheriffs who signed this statement by the New Mexico Sheriff’s Association targeting four gun related bills as ineffective.
House bill 83 would allow law enforcement to temporarily seize guns from people considered an imminent threat while people subject to a protective order would be prohibited from buying guns under house bill 87.
House bill 130 aims penalizes gun owners who don’t store guns safely around children and senate bill 8 looks to require background checks for private firearm sales.
Although many sheriffs oppose these bills
Lastly if you dont want these unconstitutional laws to gain any traction be a responsible gun owner. Get your fucking ass out of the computer chair and go vote. Go write your representatives. Call them. Be active. Because we damn sure cant count on some gun rights group when the threat of a ban is around the corner. The other side is actively trying to take away your rights. They are rallying pushing bills and crying to your representatives. You need to be more active to ensure that these assholes arent afforded the opportunity to infringe on your rights as an american!
