    who refuse neglect to enforce federal anti-marijuana laws?  Do they all need to resign too?

    the purpose of the second amendment is to promote a well-regulated militia, in the same sense that the purpose of the first amendment is to promote a well-informed electorate.

    •  He doesn't have to enforce the laws. (6+ / 0-)

      It's a question of whether he would opt to inhibit a federal law's enforcement by federal authorities.

      So when he writes:

      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.
      ... on has to ask what he means by "tolerated."

      Would he inhibit federal agents from enforcing, say, some sort of restrictive gun laws?
