From The Conservative Tribune: The Oregon state Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that would infringe on private gun sales and transfers by requiring the individuals involved in these transactions to obtain a criminal background check.
The bill must now be approved by the state House, which unfortunately is expected to pass it. Once it becomes law, anyone caught violating it will be charged with a Class B misdemeanor.
Now meet Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel, who told reporters that he has no intention of enforcing this unconstitutional new law.
“I can’t enforce that law, so therefore it won’t be enforced,” he said. “I have felonies going on daily in Josephine County. That’s my priorities.”
So many private gun sales and transfers occur on any given day that it would be virtually impossible for Sheriff Daniel to properly enforce this law.
The irony is that this sort of reasoning coincides perfectly with the way President Barack Obama chose to deal with our illegal immigration problem. There are allegedly too many illegals in America to deport, so Obama decided to just grant them amnesty.
According to BizPac Review, liberals have begun criticizing Sheriff Daniel on the basis that he “cannot pick and choose the laws he is going to enforce.”
This raises a key question: If Sheriff Dave Daniel can’t pick and choose what laws to enforce, then why can Barack Hussein Obama do it?
