Who watches the governors and the legislators? Maybe the Sheriffs?

The elite think they are above the law. They sneer at the rule of law. They may not like the results when the population believes that the rule of law has given way to the rule of the elites.

Thanks for the info. Can anyone shed light on how many Republicans supported this anti-Constitutional crap?

Most downstate Illinois residents know that once away from the six county Chicago metro area local sheriffs are conservative.

Champaign, Illinois County Sheriff: The problem isn’t guns or magazines, it’s the mentally ill
January 31, 2013

Champaign County Sheriff Dan Walsh.

EXCLUSIVE TO GUNS SAVE LIFE.com (for now)

Champaign County Sheriff Dan Walsh has weighed in on the hysterical call by Democratic Party leaders to ban guns, limit magazine capacities and impose all sorts of other restrictions both in Springfield and in Washington, D.C.

While he doesn’t come out and say he’s not going to enforce further gun bans, he does cover a number of points that are just common sense around here:

Right to carry will deter crime.
America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15, isn’t criminally misused around here.
Magazine capacity isn’t an issue.
Cops here, including him, support law-abiding citizens’ right to carry and possess firearms of all sorts.
The real problem for his department is mental health issues.

Sheriff Walsh probably isn’t going to earn himself any free donuts for the department from Governor Quinn’s office, and certainly not from Senator Durbin or President Obama, but he calls it like he sees it.

What I don't understand is, how come nobody has challenged this law by filing suit against the State of New York and Gov. Cuomo? Why are people sitting on their collective asses and not doing something about this? How about recalling these despicable legistlators that signed on to this bill? Dump Cuomo, Then go after Bloomberg for good measure!

WAKE UP NEW YORK! YOUR FREEDOM IS BEING TAKEN FROM YOU AND YOU HAVEN'T DONE A THING TO STOP IT!!!!
