Colorado Sheriff:  “Even the federal courts can’t make me enforce [gun control] laws.”

I have never witnessed a more embarrassing display than when Colorado Democrats set about to ban guns. : It was obvious they had no idea what they were talking about. : Remember this:

“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”

Rep. Diana DeGette doesn’t know the first thing about guns. Yet she wants to write laws about them.

Well, Colorado Sheriff John Cooke says they can’t make him enforce them:

“Most law-enforcement agencies in this state don’t really understand how to enforce this, and the people don’t know how to comply with this. So we actually filed a lawsuit. Fifty-five out of the 62 elected sheriffs filed a lawsuit in federal district court against these laws because we’re saying it violates people’s due process. If somebody doesn’t know that they’re violating the law, how can they be held accountable? And that’s a violation of due process,” he said.

“Even the federal courts can’t make me enforce the laws. So if we lose and the judge says, ‘No, these laws are constitutional,’ I still set the priorities and the resources for my agency. There’s no law in the state of Colorado that says I have to enforce the law, so I still won’t enforce them because in my belief and my opinion, it’s not my job to turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals,” Cooke said.
