  •  This sheriff is an idiot (5+ / 0-)

    and the content of his letter is nonsense. However, at this point he has violated no laws. Non-action could never be viewed as treason, given the very explicit requirements for that specific crime as outlined in the Constitution.

    •  Depends on how he plans to 'not tollerate' ANY (0+ / 0-)
      Any edict, regulation, or so-called 'federal law' which infringes on the right of the citizens of Hancock County, Ohio to keep and bear arms for their security will not be tolerated, recognized or enforced by me or my office.

      guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?

      •  kathy - he would not have to "tolerate" (0+ / 0-)

        in a violent manner to be guilty of any crime and still would likely not be treason. I read "tolerated" to mean ignored, but who knows? It's highly unlikely that any new federal gun control law will require county sheriffs to enforce them. The ATF will do the enforcing.

      Footfalls that advocate nullification lead down the path to treason. This country went over that Constitutional cliff once and these idiots want to reignite the Civil War all over again.

      Sadly ironic that the 2nd Amendment, which was passed to placate the Southern states and help them keep slaves in check, is the banner around which these idiots rally.

      VC, there is everything wrong with what the sherrif said, and your question seemed rather silly and provocative, to say the least.
      But, my question to you was out of bounds. I apologize.

      The "extreme wing" of the Democratic Party is the wing that is hell-bent on protecting the banks and credit card companies. ~ Kos
