The 'law' will fail. Sheriffs are elected not hired.

I am curious how this does not fall, in general due to various state laws and their wording, of blackmail.

Good luck proving the sheriffs are failing to enforce whatever law, that would require that somebody complains about such action. If the people don't complain, then how are any higher-ups going to be any wiser on the matter?

I know that doing 70MPH on a 55MPH highway isn't exactly legal, but if the sheriff goes past while doing 80 with nothing more than a casual nod, apparently he can pick and choose which laws to enforce. Particularly when no real harm is done other than violation of a law in the strictest sense. If nothing really being done that violates the intent or character of the law, then you're not going to see too many people complaining about lack of enforcement. (Such as the intent of the speed limit being there for public safety, but often it's quite safe in practice to go faster than what is officially allowed. Enforcing such law for its own sake in that case just unnecessarily wastes resources.)

Back on topic... If such a law is enacted, the sheriff may not publically boast about what he chooses to enforce. (Just can't rub it in the faces of the higher-ups anymore.) But it's still very unlikely anything will be done in regards to enforcement when it comes to laws on the books that have bad character, ill intent, or are otherwised outdated or biased in favor of those other than the public which that sheriff serves. (This is also likely one of the reasons he was voted into the job in the first place.)

So the only thing this law does is try to make some parts of government look more important than they are, while certain legislators are puffing up and trying to be more important than they are.

Law would fire sheriffs for defying gun control measures


washingtonexaminer.com

Supporters of the 380 sheriffs in 15 states who so far have vowed to defy new state and federal gun control laws claim that legislation is starting to pop up around the nation to fire any state elected or appointed law enforcement official who doesn't obey federal orders.

The first effort emerged in Texas. Legislation proposed by Dallas Democratic Rep. Yvonne Davis would remove any sheriff or law enforcement officer who refuses to enforce state or federal laws.

What's more, it would remove any elected or appointed law enforcement officer for simply stating or signing any document stati

Yvonne Davis is another one of the South Dallas idiots that love to scream about nearly anything. I get so tired of hearing how they believe the "white man" wakes up every morning thinking "hmm. how am I gonna screw over the darkies today?".Meanwhile, they shaft their own people at every corner....and get away with it!!!! It gets old.

the odds of this pin head getting ANYTHING passed in austin is pretty damn slim.

I think this is wrong. These Sherriffs are trying to do what they believe is right, which is to uphold the Constitution of the United States, which they believe is being attacked by the new gun control laws the various states are trying to propose. And being as they are locally ELECTED law enforcement, it seems a simple matter that if the LOCAL general populace doesn't agree with them, they simply won't re-elect them. To me this seems more of an attempt by government to force feed the public laws and remove any opposition that stands in their way.

The bottom 5 states are run by democrats.

These Sheriffs will be fired and should be. The police do NOT get to decide what laws to enforce. Don't like the law? Change it.

The NYPD told Gov. Cuomo screw you when told to limit their bullets to only 7 per clip.

The next day: Damage Control

"Oh,..........um......cops are exempt!"

Maybe he should have thought of that before he signed the law.
