Wyoming Sheriff Says Agency Will Ignore Any Gun Control Laws It Considers Unconstitutional

A Wyoming sheriff is saying that he and his department will ignore any of the White House’s new gun control recommendations that they consider unconstitutional. The sheriff isn’t alone, as at least six states are said to be considering taking some sort of legislative action against the government. The states include Alabama, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina, Texas, and Wyoming.

Judge Napolitano weighed in on America’s Newsroom, saying the sheriff is likely anticipating that “the president will seek legislation and sign executive orders that will infringe upon the right to keep and bear arms.” Napolitano said that it is not a crime for the sheriff to refuse to cooperate with the federal authorities.

The judge continued, “This is actually a growing movement throughout the country. Local and state law enforcement saying to the feds, ‘Those are your laws, you enforce them.’”

Earlier today, the judge weighed in on the new gun control legislation passed in New York.
