12 Washington state sheriffs refuse to enforce new gun-control law

Comment by Jim Campbell

The oath of the police is in many localities, “To Protect and Serve.”

It’s certainly not to send them out as cannon fodder to confiscate the weapons from those who will not do so without a fight.

Who wins here?

No one. 

Let’s be clear about the phrase, ” A well armed militia,” with a neighbor on the left and one on the right in possession of guns, we are a well armed militia.


This overreach if not immediately struck down by a lower court of appeals, will be settled ultimately in the United States Supreme Court.

With of course Washington’s taxpayers footing the bill.

Law makers all took an oath when being sworn into office to uphold the Constitution.

Have they forgotten their oaths or are they such zealots they just don’t care.



Note, the senior dowager from CA know nothing more about guns and apposing then. 

If she did, she would have here finger on the AK-47’s trigger or not.

The rule of the gun enthusiast is to consider all guns loaded until the magazine has been removed and your buddy puts a finger in the chamber to be certain their isn’t a live round there.

Let’s also be clear about the phrase, ” A well armed militia”My neighbor on the left, on the right and across the street all have guns.

We are the militia on our block.

Ryan Gaydos reports for Fox News, Feb. 11, 2019, that sheriffs in 12, mostly rural, counties in Washington state are refusing to enforce a new gun-control law, Initiative 1639, that was passed last November, on the grounds that it is unconstitutional.

I-1639 is a sweeping measure that raises the minimum age for buying semi-automatic from 18 to 21, requires buyers to first pass a safety course, expands background checks and gun storage requirements.

The sheriffs are from these 12 rural counties: Benton, Cowlitz, Douglas, Grant, Klickitat, Lincoln, Mason, Okanogan, Pacific, Stevens, Wahkiakum and Yakima.


Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones told the Associated Press: “I swore an oath to defend our citizens and their constitutionally protected rights. I do not believe the popular vote overrules that.”

Lincoln County Sheriff Wade Magers said 75% of voters in his county voted against the bill and called the new rules unenforceable.

The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation filed a lawsuit in federal court arguing the measure is unconstitutional because it violates the 2nd and 14th Amendments of the Constitution and gun sellers’ rights under the Commerce Clause.

The suit doesn’t challenge enhanced background checks of or the training requirements.



Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms points out that although Initiative 1639 reportedly received 60% of the vote, it is urban-centered.

Like California and Oregon, a handful of urban centers dominate Washington state. As an example, just one city, Seattle, with a population of 766,893, accounts for as much as 10% of Washington state’s total population.

The video below shows different opinions which seem logical, don’t believe it’s their way of getting their foot in the door.

They care not due to their obtuse beliefs that they are saddling their tax payers with the cost of upcoming law suits, not to mention that if their delusions fail to be cut down the United States Supreme Court.

  1. Reblogged this on 2nd Amendment, Shooting & Firearms Blog and commented:
    Very much the Same case here in New Mexico where the BloomingIdiot Bloomberg essentially BOUGHT OFF all the Democrats in our State House as evidenced by Public Records! The PAC “EveryTown for Gun Safety” is the #1 Contributor to all the Dems in Santa Fe, New Mexico!

    28 of the 33 Sheriffs in New Mexico have stated they will not enforce these unconstitutional laws and several counties have already declared that they will be “2nd Amendment Sanctuary Counties” taking a play out of the Liberal Playbook!

      Clear anti-gun Marxists want to have the taxpayers pay for law suits which will overturn their delusions at the cost of the NM tax payer. I love New Mexico. J.C.
