Very few if any sheriffs will not allow the federal government to trample their districts.
The number one reason any "public servant" bothers to acknowledge the existence of the federal government at all is because every time they kiss the federal boot they get a shiny nickle.
How else is a completely landlocked town going to get their cool cop hovercraft? How else is Andy Griffith and Barney Fife going to get MP-5's and m-4's and APC's and nifty black suits?
It's amazing how easily people sell their souls for money. Even when they dont need it.

There is also another checks and balance that a lot of people do not know about, it has been implemented once....
If the federal government passes a law that is considered unfit, if all 50 governors of the states sign a veto, they can negate the law. in other words, if all the governors think something smells bad, they can turn it over.

Makes no sense. How can the supreme court rule for this but against the sheriff in Arizona for trying keep illegals out? You can not have your cake and eat it too . So if this is true, it trumps them all.
I think its time that you search out such officials and to start electing them the sheriff and regain your citizens rights.
