    Same thing here in Utah!

    The Sheriff's assoc wrote a letter to the Governor saying they would not enforce any law they deemed unconstitutional All except Salt Lake Co.

    Thats where all the commie libs live!

    nice start

    still broken with the concept of "gun violence" being seperated from "violence"

    Sheriffs overrule Prez?

    Read on this or another forum that, constitutionally, County Sheriffs have
    "more rule" for lack of a better term , than POTUS or the governor of their state.
    Can someone definitively confirm or deny this?
    And,if it's true, how could we take advantage?

    The king can declare all he wants.
    When the kings men don't do his bidding, his power is lost.

    How can we set up a legal fund to defend those in New York that are not going to comply with this law? We can and should, so if anyone has contact in the NRA / GOA / SAF, start needling them and let's see.

    If people see that we will not tolerate this and see protests from Sheriff's, Chief's of Police, citizens and line officers AND, most importantly, financial / legal support from gun owners all over the country, then perhaps they will get the idea and pass some laws that target the actual problem.

    Okay, so they are stating that the legislation doesn't mandate confiscation, therefore they will not conduct confiscations? Did someone somewhere suggest that LE would execute a mandate that didn't exist? I haven't been following the NYS goings on since the law was forced through that night, so I obviously didn't see/hear/read where this was suggested.
    Okay, so they are stating that... crap rolls down hill; IOW... whatever the legislature spits out, they will beset upon the populace... right?

    I'm trying to see the greater victory here. It's cool and all that these sheriffs banded together to "confront" the state, but did they say something here that would fall under the phrase 'push back' or the term 'resistance'? It looks more like a finger-wagging for the haste that was witnessed in the passage of this law, as opposed to drawing a line in the sand with the state on one side and the sheriffs and people on the other.

    Not ban, but limit it. He thinks people can suffer a bit and don't need the pain meds. :barf:

    Before the bill was rushed through and signed into law, Cuomo is on record as saying, "Confiscation could be an option." His agenda is clear, even if that provision did not make it into law.

    Cuomo wants to get local LE out of the picture as much as possible and put the State Police in charge of this. They are his private army. I know some troopers who are decent people, but by-and-large they don't question authority and they follow their orders to a T.

    Cuomo has adding funding to the State Police budget just for this purpose. I think what the sheriffs are saying is that a lot of crap is going to fall on their heads anyway with this whole mess, and they're not going to get any financial support for dealing with it. Also, they're going to bear the brunt of dissatisfaction in the local communities about the new laws. Already they're getting bombarded with calls about what is legal and what isn't, and there are going to be routine enforcement issues that the State Police won't want to be bothered with.
