Linn County Oregon Sheriff got his panties in a knot about upcoming gun control laws, & before any new laws are in place, he fired off a letter to Vice President Joe Biden:
This Sheriff of Linn County (population 118,122) thought it was wise to tell off the VP of the United States that new gun control laws "shall not be enforced by him or by his deputies, nor will he permit enforcement of (what he himself ) deems unconstitutional regulations or orders by Federal officers,
within the borders of Linn County, Oregon".
I for one would like Sheriff Tim Mueller to get his ass fired.
His job is to uphold the laws, and not to determine which ones he agrees with or not,
and or if he chooses to enforce laws.
I see on the web site, Mueller has 3 kids. Lucky for him his kids were not massacred at age 6 or 7, or in a theater, on a college campus, a member of Congress public meet & greet, or a shopping mall, but the fact of the matter is that other kids & people ARE getting gunned down by assault rifles w high capacity magazines, designed for military use.
Sheriff Mueller is not even bright enough to figure out the control of high capacity ammo assault rifles might even save his own life some day.
Sheriff Mueller should turn in his badge, because he just publicly stated
he refuses to uphold laws of the land in the county in which he resides.
He just announced to the Vice President he won't do his job.
I think the Feds should tell the State of Oregon & the County of Linn
his job just ended.
Or maybe send in Homeland Security to investigate his operation.
Sheriff Tim is going rogue & telling off the President & Vice President?
Could he be any more inappropriate or unprofessional?
Meanwhile the State of New York (population 19,465,197),
just enacted a list of gun control measures.
"The new law mandates a life sentence without parole for anyone who murders a first responder, the so-called "Webster Provision."
With some provisions due to take effect immediately, the legislation expands the state's ban on assault weapons, puts limits on ammunition capacity and has new measures to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.
"People who are mentally ill should not have access to guns, that's common sense," Cuomo said at a signing ceremony in Albany. "That's probably the hallmark of this bill, coming up with a system that allows for mental-health screens."
The measure limits magazine capacity to no more than seven cartridges - the current limit is 10 cartridges - and requires a statewide re-registration of all handguns and grandfathered assault weapons.
"Seven bullets in a gun, why? Because the high-capacity magazines that give you the capacity to kill a large number of human beings in a very short period of time is nonsensical to a civil society," Cuomo said."
Feel free to call the Linn County Sheriff's office to let them know what you think about a Sheriff refusing to uphold the law.
