Colorado Sheriffs refuse to obey new gun control

I saw this on Yahoo News.  There is a growing dichotomy between what I call Rural America and the Urban areas.  The Urban areas tend to control the political process due to sheer numbers ACORN, Democrat party voter fraud, and the gerrymandering of political districts to pad the representatives  in congress and the local politicians like docile populace that cannot question " their betters" and when I hear about some police chief supporting gun control...To me it is an empty gesture a Police chief is a political appointee of the same politicians that like unarmed sheeple that cannot have a say in their destiny and the local Sheriffs by constitution of their states are the highest law enforcement official in their counties.   This shows a growing split between what I call Blue America and Red America.  Blue America is the urban areas that overwhelmingly go democrat and the rural areas that tend to be red.  There has always been a split between the "hicks" and the "city slickers" but it has been getting worse in recent years.
      The gun control debate is systematic of the split.  The cities or urban areas favor gun control because of the crime that is in the urban areas, and the blue state people would rather blame an inanimate object than blame their constituents because individual responsibility is a red state belief and that goes against the rat bastard commies ingrained bluestater since all they understand is group or hive think.  Our rights are individual rights guaranteed by our creator, and codified in our bill of rights.  Government deals in group rights and what the government gives, the government can take away.    The split will get worse and there will soon be bloodshed over this because this is a line in the sand.  If we agree to be "reasonable" with the gun control crowd and agree to MORE restrictions, we have lost the moral high ground that we have.  Every time I hear the word "reasonable" I cringe  So far we have been the ones giving up rights...So far the gun control crowd hasn't given up anything.  I am tired of being reasonable.   I believe the darkest times for America are coming and like many people will not go into the darkness like the people that boarded the train to Auschwitz or homeland equivalent.

Colo. sheriff refuses to enforce gun-control bills

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado sheriff says he won't enforce two aggressive gun-control measures waiting to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Weld County Sheriff John Cooke told The Greeley Tribune (http://bit.ly/141Ee2z ) that Democratic lawmakers are scrambling after recent mass shootings, and the bills are "feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable."
One bill expands background checks on firearm purchases, and the other limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds. The 15-round magazine limit would make Colorado the first state outside the East Coast to ratchet back gun rights after last year's shootings in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn.
Colorado's gun-control debates have been closely watched because of the state's gun-loving frontier heritage and painful history of mass shootings, most recently last summer's movie theater shooting that killed 12.
The sheriff said he "won't bother enforcing" the laws because it would be impossible for officers to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners — and he and other sheriffs are considering suing the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.
Cooke said the bill passed Friday requiring a $10 background check to legally transfer a gun wouldn't keep firearms out of the hands of those who use them for violence.
"Criminals are still going to get their guns," he said.
The sheriff's office did not immediately return calls left by The Associated Press.
The magazine-limit bill passed earlier in the week will technically ban all magazines because of a provision that outlaws any magazine that can be altered, he said, adding that all magazines can be altered to a higher capacity.
Expanded checks have been a top priority for Hickenlooper, who called for the proposal during his State of the State address in January.
Cooke oversees law enforcement in Colorado's third-largest county by area. His jurisdiction includes its largest city, Greeley, and large swaths of farmland and areas of oil and gas production.

  1. And it defacto bans SCARs and FALs because there are NO magazines for less than 20 rounds...
