Jay Carney: Local Sheriffs Had Better Enforce Gun Control Law

Published:

Jay Carney: Local Sheriffs Had Better Enforce Gun  Control Law

by Philip Hodges

We’ve heard Obama’s lapdog Jay Carney claim that the President is fully  committed to the 2nd Amendment. I mean, don’t you remember that  picture of Obama firing a shotgun? He loves to “do  skeet shooting all the time.” The 2nd Amendment actually  originally read, “The right of the people to do skeet shooting shall not  be infringed.”

Ok, so we know that this whole clay shooting/hunting thing is a bunch of  garbage. Gun rights aren’t about rights to hunt deer. And they’re not even  really so much about defending oneself from an attacker as they are about  keeping a powerful central government in check. The beauty of the 2nd Amendment is that we’ll never need it, until they try to take it away.

If the federal or state governments pass any laws restricting magazine size,  number of rounds, amount of ammunition or type of gun, then that is the  definition of infringement. A total of 381 sheriffs around the country have  formed the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA). They  have vowed not to enforce any federal or state laws that they view as  unconstitutional.

CNS News raised  this issue with Jay Carney. He was asked if the Obama administration would  have a problem if local law enforcement through organizations like CSPOA did not  enforce federal or state gun laws that they viewed to be infringements on  people’s gun rights. Carney responded:

 “I think as a general proposition we think  that people ought to follow the law. As an absolute matter of fact in my view,  and I think many other constitutional experts, there’s not a single measure in  this package of proposals the president has put forward that in anyway violates  the Constitution. In fact, they reflect the president’s commitment to our Second  Amendment rights.”

 We can’t really expect Carney to give an honest answer on this. His job  is to carry the water for the White(washed) House. He says that local police  departments should just follow the law. And I’m sure he’d add something like,  “If they don’t like the law, then they can leave.” I think it’s the other way  around. If the Obama administration doesn’t like the law (U.S. Constitution),  they can leave.

Placing restrictions on magazine size is an infringement. Limiting the number  of rounds that are allowed to be in a magazine to seven like they’ve done in New  York is an infringement. Saying that some semi-automatic weapons like handguns  are allowed for now, but others that look “scarier” are not is an infringement.  And they’re all arbitrary.

Standing up to the feds is no easy task. If these local police departments  really do decide not to enforce unconstitutional gun laws, they’ll get  threatened by Holder and the Department of (in)Justice. If there’s still no  compliance, knowing the feds, they’ll send in Homeland Security to pick up where  the police left off.

Yeah,
Obama is pick and choose on laws he will enforce.
Can anyone say DOMA? I forget what other laws he will not enforce. He decides what is constitutional or not.
Sheriffs know how to read the constitution. I thought sheriffs had some law enforcement authority the feds or other law enforcement can not touch. Forgot what it was.
