It is every citizen’s duty to interpret the law according to the Constitution for themselves. Sheriff’s are citizens.

“It is every citizen’s duty to interpret the law according to the Constitution for themselves. Sheriff’s are citizens.”

Exactly so, Tiger. (I’ll hold off any criticism on the apostrophe in Sheriff, though.)

The Framers wrote the Constitution in plain language exactly so that We The People could understand its meaning. WE are the final arbiters of its meaning!

When we are called to jury duty, it is our responsibility to make sure the law is Constitutional. (I once got out of serving on a jury by letting the judge know that I clearly understood what “jury nullification” meant.)

So where is the confusing part of the Second Amendment? How does TSA pull their crap when the Fourth Amendment is very clear and simple?

WE can fix this on our own, given half a chance!

When I was in the academy it was impressed upon us we were to enforce the spirit of the law, not the letter of the law. The chief law enforcement officers of the counties (Sheriffs) are making it clear that is what they intend to do.

Guess I will go shoot a dog now. (beat you a##holes to it!)
