New Mexico Sheriffs Take Page From Others Across Country, Declare Sanctuaries From 2nd Amendment Assaults

A movement that started in Illinois against Big Government controls on law abiding citizens exercising their 2nd Amendment Rights has spread to other states, including Washington, and now, New Mexico

New Mexico sheriffs fight gun bills with ‘sanctuary county’ resolutions

A handful of rural counties in New Mexico are passing resolutions saying they will not require their sheriffs to enforce a sweeping slate of gun-control proposals that have gone before state lawmakers.

The “Second Amendment Sanctuary County” resolutions are being presented by sheriffs to commissioners in dozens of counties, according to the head of the New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association.

So far, commissioners in at least four counties situated in some of the most remote pockets of New Mexico have passed the resolutions in the past week, Cibola County Sheriff Tony Mace said. He expects more county commissions to be presented with similar resolutions at their upcoming meetings, he said.

The resolutions represent the sheriffs’ latest attempt at pushing back against legislation supported by Gov. Lujan Grisham, a Democrat who took office in January, after the lawmen expressed opposition to the bills for weeks in legislative committee hearings, arguing they are unconstitutional.

“The key thing to remember is this is all a burden on responsible gun owners,” Mace said. “We’re here to protect people’s individual rights.”

And therein lies the problem: virtually everything Democrats are passing and looking to pass has little to no effect on the criminals. They just harm the law abiding. They do not really make it harder for people looking to use a firearm for a crime to get one. All the burdens go on law abiding gun owners and future law abiding gun owners. At the same time, Democrats are coddling criminals and attempting to reduce their sentences and such. Soft on crime.

    Trump’s people think they can take NM, given the shifts in Hispanic votes and party interest.

    They got a great response when The Donald appeared in El Paso.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      For the record:

      El Paso is in Texas, not New Mexico.

      More Blacks than whites were lynched.

        Prove it. No reason to hang blacks before the Civil War.

        Modern arabic numerals, used in the West today, were developed in North Africa from the originals invented in India by way of Baghdad.

        Again, prove it. What I found says different and, given Baghdad Barbara’s inability to get her facts straight, I’ll go with what I read.

        Sounds like Harvey is just barfing up some of Cornel West’s nonsense.

    Every possible law to thwart or punish criminals and the insane from obtaining firearms is already in effect in every state of the union. Any laws passed after that and any new laws can only be directed at law abiding citizens and are an attempt at taking away our second amendment rights. I assume the reason is so we cannot defend ourselves when the Maxine Waters, Occasional-Cotex’s, Ilham Omar’s and Elwood’s move to take complete control of our country, economy, culture and eliminate the Great White Threat. All declared completely legal by Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the 9th circuit court.

    “virtually everything Democrats are passing and looking to pass has little to no effect on the criminals. They just harm the law abiding”

    You just now figure this out? That is the entire PURPOSE behind virtually EVERY law written by
    a demonrat….including ALL “gun control” laws. The commie left doesn’t give a rats ass about the
    health, welfare or safety of the common citizen and they SURE AS HELL don’t give a shit of a common
    criminal runs rampant harming people. The ONLY thing the left cares about is POWER…..THEIR POWER.
    And the ONLY LAWS they create are intended to expand and solidify their grasp on power. ALL “gun
    control” laws are written and exist for ONE REASON. To disarm HONEST people so that the left can
    safely rule us with impunity and have no fear we will rebel and string them up. It’s time we started stringing them up.

    Senate has uncovered no direct evidence of conspiracy between Trump campaign and Russia
    “We were never going to find a contract signed in blood saying, ‘Hey Vlad, we’re going to collude,'” one Democratic aide said.

    No one is even reporting on this. The extremely powerful senate intelligence committee just issued their report like 3 days ago. This is the finding. NO COLLUSION.

    Mueller has no case. Yet he continues to milk the government tit and might actually do so for another two years if he can get away with it.

    Just like Starr milked the tit going after Clinton only to accomplish nothing, but at least that guy wasn’t using a weaponized FBI to entrap people into lying so he could put them in jail for 20 years.

    Let me copy and paste something rather important here:

    1997:
    On October 10, 1997, Starr’s report on the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster, drafted largely by Starr’s deputy Brett Kavanaugh, was released to the public by the Special Division.
    1998:
    The Starr Report: The Official Report of the Independent Counsel’s Investigation of the President written by Ken Starr was first published on September 14, 1998.
    2010:
    Starr was the Duane and Kelly Roberts Dean and Professor of Law at Pepperdine University, when on February 15, 2010, Baylor University announced that it would introduce Starr as its newest president.
    2016:
    On May 26, 2016,

    following an investigation into the mishandling by Starr of several sexual assaults at the school

    , Baylor University’s board of regents announced that Starr’s tenure as university president would end on May 31.
    2016:
    He said he “willingly accepted responsibility” and “The captain goes down with the ship.” He resigned his position as the Louise L. Morrison Chair of Constitutional Law in Baylor Law School on August 19, 2016.

    The point of the above copy and paste is to show how deep the slime runs in our national government. You only get somewhere if your know someone. Kavanaugh was part of the team investigating CLINTON…and the right is struggling to understand why the left was so upset with the Kavanaugh selection. Another Trump Trolling of the left.

    HRC was part of the team investigating NIXON during WATERGATE and the left cant figure out why the right despises the lady so much.

    The swamp is deep and runs on both sides of the aisle and the deep state is even deeper and honestly I am not surprised that the left is going full guns after Trump with the right helping in the trenches and behind the scenes. Which is all the more reason why most of us LIKE TRUMP.

    Americans have little faith in partisan Congressional committees.

    Even Senator Burr (R) was careful to report “no direct evidence”, which as prosecutors have been quick to point out is rarely found in investigating conspiracy. Burr admitted that Russia preferred tRump.

    Unfortunately for conspirators, juries often convict based on circumstantial evidence, for example Manafort’s repeated contacts with and payments from Ukrainian and Russian oligarchs and intelligence contacts; Roger Stone’s contacts with Russians and Wikileaks; Manafort’s lying under his agreement (and the rest of life in prison unless tRump pardons him).

    Manafort holds Russia-tRump secrets and is angling for a pardon from tRump and millions from Russia. Was tRump aware of what Manafort and Stone were up to? We’ll see.

      You mena like the ones run by Fatty Nadler, Schiff for brains, Kerosene Maxine, and the rest of the House Negroes.

      Even Senator Burr (R) was careful to report “no direct evidence”

      That’s what you need if you want a conviction.

      And now even the Lefties are admitting there was no collusion.

      Unfortunately for conspirators, juries often convict based on circumstantial evidence

      Baghdad Barbara hates lynching, but phony crimes based on flimsy evidence is OK.

      To wit

      Roger Stone’s contacts with Russians and Wikileaks; Manafort’s lying under his agreement (and the rest of life in prison unless tRump pardons him)

      Could this moron be any more transparent?
