The push for more gun control laws is growing stronger by the day. In fact, it seems more likely now than when Barack Obama was in the White House and Democrats controlled both houses in Congress. Before, most Republicans were against any form of gun control, but they have been weakening to the relentless brainwashing of the anti-gun mainstream media and turning against their commitments to defend the Second Amendment rights of the American people.
Before Congress gets totally caught up in the emotional irrationality of gun control, they need to take a good hard look at a very important Supreme Court decision made back in 1997.
(Great American Politics) – Once again, the mainstream media and anti-gun Democrats and a growing number of weak RINOs are calling for the passage of more gun control laws. In their anti-gun feeding frenzy, they are looking to raise the minimum age to purchase a firearm, banning bump-fire stocks and more. Some members of Congress, the media and even selected students are calling for a ban of all assault weapons, automatic and semi-automatic weapons. As I’ve pointed out before, true assault weapons and automatic weapons are already banned, which proves that many of these people are acting on emotion and ignorance rather than on fact and logic.
However, with all of the media and Democrat frenzy over the need for more gun control laws, members of Congress are forgetting one vital point.
Did you know that no matter what gun control laws are passed by the federal government, they can only be enforced in your area IF your county sheriff allows them to be?
Most people, including federal politicians fail to realize that the ultimate legal authorities in the land are the county sheriffs. This was established from the time of the Founding Fathers and upheld by the US Supreme Court in the 1997 case of Printz v. United States. Initially, the case was Mack v. United States, but by the time it reached the Supreme Court it was renamed…
The great part of this Supreme Court decision is that it is ultimately up to every county sheriff in America to decide if they want to enforce any federal law that they feel is unconstitutional or otherwise unlawful. This also applies to cities, counties and states that declare themselves to be sanctuary cities. If the county sheriff believes the sanctuary status is unlawful, which it is, then they are not obligated to enforce it and comply with federal immigration officials.
