See below a link to a story linked in the original post article.

In summation, at least one Colorado sheriff says a mountain has been made of a non-existent mole hill. Having read the Colorado bill, I agree with the sheriff.

Still, it's an expansion of Federal power and reach.
Colorado is doing the Progressives' job for them.

Problem is the bill is open to interpretation. All we need is a federal judge to interpret the bill one way and we have feds with increased authority in our states.

So all it takes to satisfy you is one sheriff that sees it your way?

Who is going to arrest the President and The Justice Dept for refusing to enforce immigration laws, DADT and Federal Firearm laws?

State legislatures have been playing this game back and forth for at least 34 years of which I am personally aware, and probably long before then. Colorado could, and may well, just as easily repeal this bill next session. So far as the authority of Federal agents to arrest local officials for violations of Federal statutes, it changes nothing either way.

The more important question is who is going to indict or impeach the entities you mentioned.

The same can be said for any bill, though Federal judges are not often called upon to interpret state legislation.

Repeating myself here, but, "State legislatures have been playing this game back and forth for at least 34 years of which I am aware, and probably long before then.

Years of personal experience in this and related matters satisfy me. The sheriff's reply was in my initial post in the hope that seeing the same point of view expressed by a local official might give it additional credibility here. That hope was apparently in vain.

The thing you missed is they are TRYING to get certain stuff passed in bills. It's been that way for over 200 years. This is something I've been pushing for years, READ THE BILLS, then we all will know what is and is not in them.

Once again thing that gets some of us upset is they are trying and others are just setting back and not worried about anything. Same with these anti-gun laws. Some are setting back letting others do the fight for THEIR rights and those same ones setting around will vote to put the same people in office to TRY again to pass more anti-gun bills.

They said NOTHING would happen, tell that to New York, Colorado, Connecticut and all the other states with new anti-gun bills up for a vote.

Matters such as this one are of FAR more concern to me, and should be to all informed Americans, than a Colorado law that gives Secret Service agents authority to arrest shoplifters.

I read the Colorado bill in question several days before this post popped up here. In the unlikely event someone here is interested, the entire text can be found at the link below:

I found nothing in it to indicate that "They are going after the sheriffs now," to quote your thread title.

You still missed it again.

All you want to do is try to find something wrong with anybody's posts and nothing more.

Read the title in the link, you used the SAME LINK to get a different story. Now go by the first article and read that. Now you will see it was the author of the article that led to the title. But in your link HE CHANGED HIS STORY not me. So get on him like you should.

As to what you missed. Once again, some of us are upset they are TRYING to do this stuff in any way they can little by little.

I'm not aware of many bills that can be interpreted as giving Secret Service agents the right to arrest local law enforcement officials.

Some on this site make a point of pointing out federal government overreach and criticizing it. You make a habit of down playing the significance of these power grabs and ridiculing those opposed to it.

Agree 100%.

A few on here come across as apologists for the Progressives, IMO.

We are the watchmen.
They are the James Carvilles of the world.

Every time someone points a finger at government corruption, power grabs, we get the same old,
"Nothing to see here, these are not the droids you are looking for" routine.

YES.
Progressives have almost completely taken over the Democrat party, and are well n their way to taking the Republican party.

All you have to do is see that the Senators from TN AND GA voted with Obama's goons Schumer & Feinstein today to begin the "expanded background checks" that will ONLY hurt law abiders, not the nutjobs, and certainly not the thugs, gang-bangers and terrorists among us.

Let's see you Progs defend THAT.
