Posted on 04/07/2013 6:48:13 AM PDT by CodeToad
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is expected to sign into law a bill that would give the U.S. Secret Service "limited" police power while operating in the state of Colorado. The bill, SB 13-013, which has already been passed by both the Colorado House and Senate, has sparked a firestorm of controversy because of fears that the proposed power could be used by Secret Service agents, acting on behalf of the Obama administration, to arrest sheriffs in Colorado who refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal gun controls.

If they tried that in Alaska they would be arrested.
Alaska recently passed laws that Federal agents can and will be charged with felony charges if they come into Alaska trying to enforce particular federal firearms laws penned by Obama.
Sheez, I guess CO has been overrun with California liberals.
Pot loving gun grabber socialistic loyal supporting liberals, one must remember to place all the right labels on the idiots.
You forgot the Chicago thug and his gang.
My jaw dropping just hit and busted the keyboard.
I know I’m not the first to comment on this, but I can’t think of, in all of human history, a greater blend of hubris, hypocrisy, and irony, than this administration’s stance that local LE have no place enforcing federal immigration laws, but threaten those who even suggest they will refuse to enforce federal firearms laws that have yet to be passed.
I have to believe this was all deliberate and by design. I know a handful of liberals who quit their jobs and moved to Colorado after the last election. I wonder if there was some super-secret communiqué that went out to American socialists asking that they relocate to Colorado to help collapse that state in the same way they did California.
I had a ball honking and waving and shouting "Welcome to Moorhead!" and watching them trying to slink down or even move their cars in reaction as my cab passed. They even called the cab dispatcher once to complain but she just told them we were a friendly town. We all had a good laugh because we knew they had no jurisdiction unless the VP was actually being threatened.
Ohhhh, so sheriffs must enforce federal law or face arrest? Hmmm, so i guess they can start arresting and deporting illegals aliens now too?
Sounds unconstitutional on its face.
That’s mu guess too, Maybe they should change the name to Cholirafornia.
Without question it is unconstitutional and an attack by the liberals in both the State and federal governments. Our local Sheriffs have our total support. The Colorado Sheriffs Association recently put out a position paper against all these gun grabbing laws so their positions on the matter are well known. The liberals think they have the upper hand, which they do in the legislature, but they are facing fierce opposition in the public and with local elected officials.
Should anyone attack our Sheriffs they will find the support those Sheriffs have to be extremely hostile.
“hubris, hypocrisy, and irony, than this administrations”
That’s them, but they haven’t faced much opposition so they are bolstered in their hubris.
“I wonder if there was some super-secret communiqué that went out to American socialists asking that they relocate to Colorado to help collapse that state in the same way they did California”
In a way that did happen. In about 1996, ACORN and others started a campaign from The People’s Republik of Boulder to start voter fraud to takeover Colorado. They haven’t stopped.
Who needs that pesky old Constitution, or local law enforcement anyway?
Just let the Feral Govt take care of us.
I guess not that far away.
Yep, getting to be a quick response to the ping these days, target dead ahead.
