If it was unconstitutional it would have been challenge in the courts already. The simple fact that it hasn't been tells you something.

i mean, you don't really think this is a good argument do you? Read it again one more time.

I read left to right, right to left, and up and down. Your monkey hoop jumping is beginning to bore me. So you're saying it is Constitutional to sell psychotropes for pleasure?

Interesting change of subject. Does this mean you admit you are wrong on the threads topic then?

I didn't change anything. I'm trying to decipher what in Hell you mean by Constitutional. And you should know by now that if I'm wrong on something, I will say so. I'm not some snowflake or dandelion, or imbecile who insists he is right all the time.

Whenever a disagreement on constitutionality arises, the position opposite of the leftist is proven to be correct 99.99999% of the time.

Its really simple, if the sheriff feels he can not fulfill his oath and up hold the laws of the state then he can ether resign or bring legal challenge to the law. What he can not do is choose not to enforce the law, he is only a jailer and enforcer not a judge or jury. His job like it or not is to take the court order he will receive to remove the firearms in question. Should he disagree with the courts he can alway be a witness for the defence so long as he up holds his oath and enforces the states laws.

Yes, the same way the law enforcement people in those sanctuary cities are doing with the illegal aliens.

If you don't like the law challenge it, but if you swear an oath to up hold your jurisdiction laws then do your job, if you cant resign.

I really don't give a rats butt what the law is ether, it could be the stupid bathroom bill. But the sheriff is not a judge so he has no business making a judgement on the legal merits of a law. His job is the enforcement of the laws of his jurisdiction.

So, those law enforcement people in those "sanctuary" cities need to enforce the law, right? Or is it that immigration laws are not in their jurisdiction?

If they are city, county, or state then no unless their is a law in place giving them federal jurisdiction. Then it boils down to the courts to decide which law supersedes the local jurisdiction. As a legal rule of thumb a local cop can only enforce local law. Let take the case of my uncle, he was incharge of the OSP bomb squad. His direct jurisdiction was state lands and roadways that's it. For his team to be activated in city, county, or federal jurisdictions they had to be requested by that jurisdiction. There is legal recourse to challenge a law or jurisdiction, but it is for the courts to decide not the law enforcer.
