    Multiple Sheriff's send letters - No intent to enforce

    Hopefully this copied image is big enough to read. If not you can read it right on Linn County Sheriff's facebook.

    Tim Mueller, Linn County Sheriff of Oregon has written a letter to Vice President Joe Biden. Any new gun legislation passed by EO or otherwise he refuses to enforce, or to allow any federal officer to enforce them in his county.

    https://www.facebook.com/LinnSheriff

    EDIT and UPDATE: This is now spreading to other Sheriff counties in Oregon, as well as a Sheriff in Johnson County, Missouri. His letter can be seen in post 39 or bellow the letter or Tim Mueller in this post. Start writing your Sheriff's!

    And now from Charles M. Heiss of Johnson County, Mo.

    When these popular letters circulate I wonder if the recipient even bother reading it?

    I admire the sheriff's initiative, but it will change when all federal funding in his county dries up.

    I don't see any thing but bad coming from all of this. I feel for the officers who are told they will have to enforce laws like this. I hope they have the good sense to resign their positions instead of going against the constitution.

    I used to live there. Good for that Sheriff !

    I know that Sheriff Richard Mack was giving talks in the Pac NW, I wonder
    if he made it to Linn County Oregon.

    You missed a part when you typed - the part about any EO or law not being enforced by his folks

    What's as important is we are reading it, and reposting it on facebook and other forums as well....

    No, your paragraph before the summary is missing a few sentences, it appears.

    This is the last hope, in New York and anywhere else that imposes such draconian laws; that the police will refuse to enforce these laws.

    I don't see that happening in New York though...

    Dang I had a lot of mistakes in there :banghead: Not very easy typing something and reading something side by side on a computer screen, no hard copy. Friggin .pdf's and the inability to copy text :rolleyes:

    While I appreciate his and other's stances - I have yet to have gotten sideways with a Sheriff's dept in relation to firearms regulation.

    Always been municipal, state or federal.

    But I am diggin' these Sheriffs. Too bad Maricopa's won't stand up. I figure his shoe-in won't be so certain next time around for it!

    When you're one of us who lives outside of town limits, the county sheriff is who you'll deal with. If a town cop showed up at my place acting officially, I'd laugh at him and tell him to pound sand.

    Too true. I've been buttonholed a couple times (always in the right so far) outside the usual jurisdictions - in fact our shop is currently in a county annex surrounded by three municipalities - yet the Sheriff's Office still leaves us be and anyone we have dealt with has been state or federal.

    I was discussing the topic of states refusing to implement federal laws or EU's with a friend recently. Is there any credibility to using the Mack Vs. US case on this issue?

    A Texas representative is trying to push a law through similar to this:


    I have a thread with a link to the story here.

    I applaud sheriff Mueller’s brave stance, regarding his decision to have his deputies enforce or not enforce any pending legislation. I do have two problems with his decision; Sheriff Mueller took an oath to uphold the law, not just the laws he approves of. Second sheriff Mueller may be in for quite an unpleasant surprise if he actively attempts to stop or obstruct any Federal law enforcement officer who is acting under color of law.

    Please folks try and remember the last 4 + weeks have been some of the most trying and disturbing times I can remember in years. I read and heard normal and sane people say some of the most outlandish things. If there is one time we have to take the “high road” and present ourselves as calm cool sane and rational adults this is it.

    I'm going to be contacting my Sheriff about this. I live in Marion County, adjacent to Linn. It'll be interesting what he says.
