cman: Dixon Cider: I live near this asshole and hope he gets fired soon!Farking conservatives thinks it's OK to break the law, if it is something they want. But ask for Equal Rights for Brown or Gay people and HOLY shiat, your asking fro crimes against humanity!!Sherifs are elected officials. I dont know how they do it in Colorado, so maybe you can answer me this. Can the state remove a Sherif from power? The only ways that I could think of that the state could fire him is if the sherif were convicted of a crime
Verzio: Satanic_Hamster: Verzio: The job (like every other government office in the US) includes an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. That inherently requires the sheriff to judge what acts on his part uphold it and what acts do not. Refusing to take actions to enforce what he believes to be an unconstitutional law is, in fact, part of his job.No, it's not. There's a legal course of action if you think something isn't legal or Constitutional. Random hicks declaring it unconstitutional isn't one of them.Go ahead, show me where in the US Constitution that lays out this "legal course of action", and says individual officials must defer their own judgments to it. Article and section, please.The fact that the courts have the implicit power to review the constitutionality of laws does not, in any way, actually relieve persons who have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution from their oath to uphold the Constitution. By the fact that it's an obligation on the individual, the individual must make a judgment. If the judgment that individual makes is to assume constitutionality until a court rules, that is still a decision he made. Making the judgment is inescapable.Biological Ali: The famous "Fire in a crowded theater" phrase was actually coined in a case that related to a man distributing leaflets (which I'm sure you'll agree are similar enough to books as far as "speech" is concerned. The case didn't turn out very well for the guy arguing "free speech"Yeah, because Oliver Wendel Holmes, Jr., was a fascist asshole who used the Constitution for toilet paper. And that a later Supreme Court held that it was okay to round up Japanese-Americans who had committed no crimes and detain them in concentration camps didn't make that actually constitutional either.
GUTSU: What I wouldn't have given to have seen Feinstein's face after she heard the news.
WippitGuud: GUTSU: WippitGuud: redmid17: WippitGuud: GUTSU: WippitGuud: Doesn't the Privelege and Immunities Clause guarantee Freedom of Movement? Wouldn't that make it a right?You don't need a car to exercise your Freedom of Movement. It's perfectly legal to walk across the country, and you don't need a license to own a horse.Full circle: You don't need a 30 round clip exercise your right to bear arms.Rights are not about needs. They never have been.If the government enacts a ban against the manufacture or import of (in this case) a 30 round magazine, how does that infringe upon your rights?How is not being allowed to use vowels infringe on your right to free speech? Who needs more than 21 letters anyway?How does one speak without vowels?
tylerdurden217: jso2897: At this point, I think that they should pass a whole bunch of absurd gun laws, just to troll these assholes and make the lose their minds. This country is sick anyway - time to give it an enema.Yes, I think this is a good idea. If you buy a gun and at any point after you bring it home, pose in front of the mirror with it, you should have your gun confiscated and your name put on a list of people that buy guns for the wrong reasons. Forever prohibited from owning a gun.Talk about hard to enforce. I wish there was some way.
manimal2878: Infernalist: They'll talk a big game until a team from the FBI shows up and sits them down to take depositions on whether or not they'll enforce signed state law.Then they'll meekly agree to enforce the laws, understanding that the FBI will be testing them on the issue rather quietly.I think it is a bunch of empty talk, like you say. In fact, has anyone ever been arrested solely for having a magazine that held too many bullets? It's not something that would ever even come up. If you committed another crime and they confiscated your gun as evidence only then would they cause to ever asses the magazine capacity.

But ask for Equal Rights for Brown or Gay people and HOLY shiat, your asking fro crimes against humanity!!How do you feel about the legalities of sanctuary cities? Should they fire the politicians and law enforcement officals who refuse to enforce immigration laws?
