    The Real Resistance: Washington State Sheriffs Refuse To Enforce Unconstitutional Gun Laws

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-...ional-gun-laws

    Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

    Washington state recently introduced bills for some of the strictest gun laws in the country but they have some very important opponents: the sheriffs.

    Long thought to be the last line of defense between authoritarianism and freedom, sheriffs are in a unique position. As elected officials, basically nobody has authority over them – not the judges, not the Feds – no one except the people who may or may not choose to re-elect them.

    What are those new gun laws in Washington?

    In November, Washington voters passed a ballot initiative, I-1639. To purchase a semi-automatic rifle, buyers must be over 21, undergo an enhanced background check, must have completed a safety course, and need to wait 9 days to take possession of their weapon. And that’s not all. A gun owner who doesn’t store his or her weapon “properly” can be prosecuted.

    And that was just the beginning of the unconstitutional momentum.

    Feeling the wind at their backs after the ballot, gun campaigners and liberal legislators have now gone even further in the new legislative session. Bills introduced in the last week to Washington’s Democrat-dominated legislature look to further restrict firearms. Some laws would ban high capacity magazines and plastic guns made with 3D printers. Others would mandate training for concealed carry permits, and remove guns and ammo during and after domestic violence incidents.

    Washington’s attorney general, Bob Ferguson, who proposed several of the bills, said in an email: “Now is the time to act. Washingtonians have made it clear that they support common-sense gun safety reforms.” (source)

    Things are getting more and more difficult for gun owners in a state that has two very different demographics.

    Washington is a reflection of the rest of the US.

    The state of Washington is similar to the United States in general. The vast majority of the population lives in a few large cities, distant from the rural and small-town folks in a lot more than just mileage. The left-leaning cities are in direct opposition to the more right-leaning rural communities, but the rural communities are under the thumb of the city voters due to numbers.

    Back when they voted on I-1639, 27 of the 39 counties were against the measure, but because the twelve counties that voted FOR it were more populous, the initiative passed.

    Does this sound familiar? If it weren’t for the electoral college in national elections, we’d probably have Hillary Clinton as our president, and she’s notoriously anti-gun. The situation of gun owners would look very different right now if that had happened.

    It's really simple. No matter the law the answer should always be...We. Will. Not. Comply.

    Then it becomes their move. It's one thing for an "enforcer" to possibly encounter deadly conflict on his/her day-to-day. It's quite another to be guaranteed of it.

    There is a reason John Joe Gray never went before a judge, let alone a prison, and all charges were eventually dropped.

    Some Washington law enforcement officers are refusing to enforce these laws.
    I hate to be a wet blanket, but this really is not a significant development. Places like that the sheriffs face far too much belligerence over a issue like this. Too bad the rest of the country is $#@!ed, and that's by far the majority. These sheriffs are in the distinct minority, most are more than happy to exercise their authoritay on anything and everything.

    and their resolve has yet to be tested. (I am watching)
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
