The constitution was written simply and clearly so that even those with limited education could understand it. It seems clear to me that the constitution requires an affirmation of support by not only sheriffs but all law enforcement officers and state and local officials including prosecuting attorneys. A law that obviously infringes (interferes, violates, encroaches, exceeds, intrudes, cancels, restricts, conflicts, dilutes, etc.) on one’s rights should be vigorously opposed.
More food for thought: A Colorado undersheriff recently asked a class of Colorado state troopers if they would have any objections to going into homes and confiscating firearms. Why would this question even be asked if it wasn’t their intent to do so?
May God bless and keep us all safe.
