Does anyone really think this will hold up in court?

Is there a sheriff that wants to put their a$$ on the line and arrest a Fed agent?I could understand it from the twit in AZ but WY... If it's all the same, I'm not holding my breath. I seriously don't think the right is going to bring down the gov in WY.

Good! Sheriff is the highest authority in his/her county not some federal thug.
That worked out well for Birmingham, Alabama and Bull Conner, didn't it?
Hmm.... lemme think.... As I recall, Conner lost his job forever, and the city did away with his position. So did the mayor.
It upset Bull so bad he had a stroke 2 years later and spent the rest of his life in a wheelchair drooling Red Man out of one side of his mouth.

I know Montana. The good citizens there aren't like those in Alabama. They don't have to learn things the hard way.

This sort of pizzes me off. A durned eastern state beats my state to the punch. Time to call my state legislators and get them on the ball.

really? good luck with that. feds show up with 2-4 agents and the sheriffs show up with 20-30 deputies.
if you look at the commerce clause, and the commerce clause does overrule federal law, as federal law is not part of the Constitution.

This is going on all over the country. Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association had it's 1st meeting in January of 2013, and it's membership is skyrocketing. Read about it here: Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association | CSPOA - Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association and here: Growing List of Sheriffs and Associations Saying ‘NO’ to Obama Gun Control | CSPOA - Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association

Remember... a Sheriff can deputize any citizen in their county when push comes to shove. The feds may have a fight on their hands.
