Well, I suppose everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I see it quite opposite. Local sheriffs are closer to their communities and to the people
whom they serve. They are in a much better position to deal with these issues. It's a bit of a no brainer for people to arm themselves in light of
the fact that police never arrive until after someone's dead or bleeding or victimized. I'd just call that one responsible.
If a particular local official is abusing his power, its is up to his constituency to hold him accountable. The idea that local sheriffs are in on a
common agenda is quite implausible and a bit silly. not sure if that is where you are going, though.
Actually, I do agree on the issue of private prisons. One of the few services that should stay public.
But I don't see this "War on Violence" meme in the propaganda media very much. In fact, I'd say it is just a weak attempt by Republicans to
promote the common sense and obvious idea that guns are not the cause of violence in our society. Our lack of civil cohesion is. More recently, the
real danger comes from the collectivist brainwashing and the constant 24/7 propaganda barrage pushing dependence, irresponsible behavior, and nanny
statism, generally associated with the Jackass party. Where the GOP is an issue is their obsession with killing foreigners.
As far as promoting the Feds and their "protection" of us, ask a former Branch Davidians and Randy Weaver about how well that works out.
No offense, but I think your OP theory is a bit lacking in evidence.
