high-profile former sheriff who once sued the U.S. government over its
gun regulations – and won – says it is the local sheriff who will have
to defend Americans when and if the feds starting banning and
confiscating guns.

Richard Mack, a former sheriff
in Graham County, Ariz., joined with then-Ravalli County Sheriff Jay
Printz in a lawsuit against Washington when Bill Clinton demanded
sheriff’s enforce provisions of the Brady Bill gun control law.

He won. And since then he’s been at the front of a movement that highlights the responsibility of local sheriffs.

    And they will probably do so.
    And they will probably do so was the only answer I could pick because there was no chance to disagree. I hate being railroaded! OK the original question was if I was one of them would I stick up for them if something went wrong? It would all depend on what that thing was, wouldn't it? Otherwise you would just be the same as the people you were arresting and the public would never trust you. But if was something bad but righteous yeah I'd keep my mouth shut because sometimes sh!t happens and it turns out OK in spite of looking bad, if you know what I mean.

    They can arrest the people trying to take your gun.

    All of the above
    The 100 million gun owners,they know about can do it if they unite .

    Do you really think so? You'd have more people that have the gun in the upper wardrobe under the socks and don't even know how to take the safety off and they would probably be more of a danger to themselves than an organized and trained group of law enforcement officers and soldiers, who would probably be the guys stuck with keeping order. I thought we were on their side?

    there are 30 million hunters for starters
  • jere.ch... mal 2013/01/01 23:48:42 (edited)
    And many more who shoot regularly at targets almost 20 million.
    Most of whom have been in the military.

    it can be done.
  • jere.ch... mal 2013/01/01 23:53:40
    my point exactly.
  • moira.f... jere.ch... 2013/01/02 00:10:02
    yeah but the trained people are mostly cops and soldiers (and hunters of course as in Canada also) and they would be they ones keeping order, not joining in. It would be a clusterfvck of the worst kind. listen if you want to keep your small legal ones just move up to canada and seek some high ground... there's plenty of room to move around and people are a little more laid back. honestly though I don't think it will get to that point because the dangerous people have unregistered weapons and so it's kind of a moot point, like it was here and too hard to enforce effectively and they don't have the manpower to do it anyway.

    You make it very tempting for me yo move there!
