Actual states are passing real legislation (not just empty resolutions for a public statement) saying Federal Agents can stand for state prison time if they attempt to enforce new regulations within those states. It's not JUST Sheriff's.
There may be some gun owners victimized in the beginning without any support because it'll take a bit for states and local authority to transition from 'theory' to reality and reaction ...but these laws being passed are like nothing I've ever seen in my lifetime. Nothing remotely like it. The states are almost in revolt simply by passing these laws and amendments that directly outlaw the enforcement of federal law.
Regardless, the confrontation and conflict is far above the level of individual citizens. It's already fast moving beyond that and it's breathtaking to see develop.

Bill C-68 The Firearms Act was created by Bill C-68, An Act Respecting Firearms and Other Weapons, which was introduced in 1993, and aimed at the licensing of all gun owners and registration of all firearms. The bill also classified replica firearms as prohibited devices, with those already owned being grandfathered. It was passed by Parliament and given Royal Assent in 1995. The Canadian Firearms Centre was established in 1996 to oversee the administration of its measures. The registration portion of the Firearms Act was implemented in 1995 and the deadline for gun owners to register their non-restricted firearms was January 1, 2003. Compliance was a dismal failure: Over 70% of all firearms in Canada were never registered.
A survey in August 2010 revealed that 72 percent of Canadians believe the long-gun registry has done nothing to prevent crime. Organizations like the Canadian Taxpayers Federation have circulated petitions to end the registry and have collected tens of thousands of signatures supporting the elimination of the registry. In April 2011, a survey was conducted by the Edmonton Police Association. Its members voted 81 percent in favour of scrapping the long-gun registry.

You know, when it comes down to it, they can try and pass what ever they want, it doesnt neccessarily mean people will abide by the laws. Take prohibition, for example...
