    Massie: Sheriffs may go to jail to protect Second Amendment sanctuaries

    Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie thinks some local law enforcement leaders will be willing to go to jail rather than comply with state gun control laws they deem unconstitutional.
    "Attended my first 2A sanctuary meeting today in Lewis County (where I live). Standing room only. Friends and neighbors spoke passionately and articulately. County officials unanimously passed a resolution," Massie tweeted on Dec. 30. "This grassroots movement feels even stronger than the Tea Party in 2010."

    Second Amendment sanctuary municipalities last year sprouted up in Illinois, a state with some of the strictest gun control laws. They then spread to Colorado, Kentucky, New Mexico, New Jersey, Oregon, Virginia, Washington state, and other states.
    Massie cited Weld County, Colorado Sheriff Steve Reams, a critic of the state’s “red flag” law, who has offered to put himself in his own jail rather than enforce the state law.
    “His county government has already voted to fund his legal fees should he end up in a protracted legal battle that might go all the way" to the Supreme Court, Massie told the Washington Examiner.
    “And so that's one of the things that when you boil it all down and say, ‘What does the sanctuary county movement mean?'” Massie said. “So, what it could mean is that county governments decide to use taxpayer dollars, with the blessing of the taxpayers in those counties, to support the sheriffs in their court battles.”
    Massie compared the potential circumstances to the jailing of Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis by a judge when she refused to sign same-sex marriage certificates in 2015.
    “A lot of people didn't think she was willing to do this, but she resisted a judge's order to issue marriage licenses with her name on it, and she refused to do it, and he found her in contempt and threw her in jail without a jury trial,” Massie said.
    “So, she was basically a political prisoner," Massie said. "She stayed in jail until it became a national issue.”

    That's where I found it.

    But I just saw your post there so I guess it doesn't matter now.

    I see repeats there all the time and this bears repeating.

    And Trump could just pardon them.
    “The spirits of darkness are now among us. We have to be on guard so that we may realize what is happening when we encounter them and gain a real idea of where they are to be found. The most dangerous thing you can do in the immediate future will be to give yourself up unconsciously to the influences which are definitely present.” ~ Rudolf Steiner
