States make shall and may laws, not city councils. Those would be ordinances, not laws.Actually, that's not true. In this district, we are encouraged to use discretion. It's the final check and balance to stupid laws.
Case in point. Some egotistical slob that thinks his farts don't stink in a big city in Colorado decides to ban "assault weapon" ownership. He gets his liberal, socialist loving city council members to vote for it. He even says that he will fine you 1000 dollars a day for not turning your " assault weapons" in.
You know that the law is unconstitutional, stupid, immoral and dangerous to those that refuse.
As a police officer do I have to enforce that silliness? Absolutely not. The brain dead officers that do are as guilty of wrongdoing as the Mayor and the city council and should be treated as such.
