Too bad he was just re-elected. Huntsman picked him as a running mate—so perhaps this is not unexpected. Pity.

So in Utah you have the governor and the sheriff of Salt Lake County on the feds side, and the remaining 28 sheriffs, on the side of the Second Amendment. Ergo, Salt Lake City is just like most other big cities, except that they don’t have the leaders of the Mormon Church hiding under their desks on this issue.

That’s fine, as long as they are actually laws, passed by the people’s representatives, assembled. Not the unlawful whims or dictates of a power-grabbing executive.

Tool Herbert knows where political power comes from . . . .

Is he a True Believer, or just a Useful Idiot?

As Justice Marshall observed in deciding Marbury v. Madison, when two laws are in conflict, the superior one controls; and as between a statute and the constitution, the constitution controls. When the feds pass unconstitutional laws, nobody is bound to follow them, The laws are ultra vires, "beyond the powers" of the entity that issued them.

So, I gather the governor supports unconstitutional laws, provided those laws are passed by the feds and endorsed by the federal court system.

Didn’t the Supreme Court recently rule last year that states are not allowed to enforce federal law? Or does that only apply to immigration and not the “good” laws?

Rule number one in the age of Obamunism.

The Government is never “extreme”, the only Extremists are the People that oppose decisions made by the Government.

Cue Hitlery’s speech during the Bush Administration screeching about dissent being Patriotic.

Governor, you may want to recheck the meaning of “free state” as used in 2-A; hint: it isn’t the federal government. Second hint: it has nothing to do with slavery.
