    County Sheriffs Can Block Federal Gun Control

    Considering the millions of gun owners in the US, the only way the federal government could confiscate weapons would be at the local level (IMO).

    As I stated in another thread, it would interesting to know how this would play out across the country.

    If true that's interesting. Of course it's from a publication that has a story called:

    Did Barack Obama Campaign Threaten Life of Chelsea Clinton to Keep Parents Silent on Obama’s Ineligibility?

    County Sheriffs are elected officials too. Some might support the 2A, but many will fold to the masters that bought them, and the DHS Money they get from the Feds.

    And yes, there is irony concerning the source.

    I don't see a lot of government thugs coming "door to door" for outright confiscations. That is a recipe for disaster and to meet armed resistence.

    Instead they will pass whatever restrictions they end up with that will make law abiding citizens criminals if they don't comply.

    Then they will simply sit back and wait for you to be caught with one of the "prohibited weapons (or devices) in your possession and quietly arrest you at that time.

    I don't think they will try the "door to door" method of confiscation. They know people are going to hide them and lie to them. So, they just sit back and get you when you get caught with one. Which means, you essentially have a worthless weapon. You won't be able to use it for sporting purpose, recreation or even to defend yourself with it.

    Let's say you do use your AR-15 against a home invasion. You even have "castle doctrine" in your state. Yes, you performed a lawful action of deadly force against a legitimate threat of death or great bodily harm. No issue there. However, you used a federally prohibited weapon, and for that, you get 10 years and a $100,000 fine.

    Much easier for them to get you when you get caught using it, than to risk an armed resistance in a "door to door" confiscation.

    So, yes, I don't think they will actually come and physically get your guns. They will just make you a criminal when you get caught with one.

    In America now; the powers that be can do pretty much anything they want if they find such an action to be a benefit.
    That "benefit" comes after a little scrutiny of (Cost vs Benefit) analysis.

    If the benefit elevates the social elitists to a higher position of power; they will go for it at ANY cost.

    My sheriff supports Mack's ideas. Now...putting them into action could be a different story. After all, the sheriff will still have his guns.
