I wonder if they will enforce federal marijuana law while they're at it.A bill is heading to Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk that Republican lawmakers say would give members of the Secret Service broad arrest powers in the state and could provide a framework for federal agents eventually to enforce gun restrictions.
In MN, any adult can arrest a person they believe broke the law.“In theory if a Secret Service agent is in a county where the sheriff has refused to enforce some of the recent unenforceable gun laws, the agent could arrest an individual if he believes the law has been broken.”
Not that I can read, but I'll look at the Bill when I have time. uke:The new bill regarding the Secret Service, SB-13-013, passed on a nearly party line vote in the Democrat-controlled House and is now awaiting the governor’s signature. The bill grants members of the Secret Service arrest powers by considering them to be a peace officer, putting them on a par with state law-enforcement officials with respect to arrest authority.
The legislation does not only apply to agents guarding the president or other government officials but also to special agents, uniformed division officers, physical security technicians, physical security specialists and special officers of the United States Secret Service.
Republican lawmakers say that when they asked why the bill was needed they were given a series of conflicting answers.
And:(3) UPON EFFECTING AN ARREST UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THIS 8 SECTION, A SECRET SERVICE AGENT SHALL IMMEDIATELY SURRENDER 9 CUSTODY OF THE ARRESTED INDIVIDUAL TO A COLORADO PEACE OFFICER.
They forgot "It's for the Children"SECTION 2. Safety clause. The general assembly hereby finds, 19 determines, and declares that this act is necessary for the immediate 20 preservation of the public peace, health, and safety.
Not really. The issue is whether or not the state government is making a correct policy decisionThe issue is that the government has no business enforcing a state's laws...
