Heroic officials willing are defending our Constitution and rule of law. But what about the rest?

The HIV virus which causes AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) does not kill people directly. It destroys their immune systems, allowing a waiting disease that would otherwise be fought off by the body to kill them. The American political left, despite efforts since Woodrow Wilson called our Constitution “political witchcraft,” has not been able to directly inject a fatal disease (or at least not a rapidly fatal one) into our political system. So they are turning to destroying the national immune system by encouraging Americans to abandon belief in our Founding documents and principles.

It’s working. With the help of friends and useful idiots, the Progressive left has severely weakened the country’s ability to defend itself from their fundamentally un-American vision by weakening Americans’ understanding of and respect for the principles that have historically opposed almost everything Progressivism stands for. One obvious symptom: an America in which citizens understood what their nation truly stands for would never have re-elected President Barack Obama.

Unless Americans fortify our national immune system by redoubling our commitment to protecting the Constitution and the principles of the Declaration of Independence, we will suffer the bitter consequences of Progressive “success” in much the same way that an AIDS-infected body suffers the subsequent “success” of pneumonia or tuberculosis or cancer.

Like the human body, our body politic has secondary immune systems, though often dormant until needed, within non-federal areas of the government where people from state legislators to local elected officials to judges to law enforcement officers take an oath to support and defend the Constitution.

In the current debate over our Second Amendment rights, the dormancy is lifting among a particular group: the sheriffs. They recognize the early symptoms of the disease and are trying to do something to prevent the U.S. becoming a victim of full-blown political immune deficiency syndrome.

Across the nation, sheriffs are stating publicly that they will not enforce what they believe to be unconstitutional edicts from the White House infringing on Americans’ fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

We’ve heard it in Minnesota, Arizona, Oregon, California, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Colorado (at least four sheriffs in my home state), and from an ever-growing list of sheriffs from East to West and North to South.

Though gun rights are the trigger for the discussions, the language they are using and the point they are making are not primarily about guns, but about the Constitution and the rule of law.

From Pine County, Minnesota Sheriff Robin Cole: “I do not believe the federal government or any individual in the federal government has the right to dictate to the states, counties or municipalities any mandate, regulation or administrative rule that violates the United States Constitution or its various amendments.”

From El Paso County, Colorado Sheriff Terry Maketa: “Like every elected official in the state, I took an oath to support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Colorado. This means all rights.… Some have suggested this is a political issue or a right and left issue. I strongly oppose that suggestion. This is a constitutional rights issue and we should all stand by this document which is the foundation of this nation.”

From Linn County, Oregon Sheriff Tim Mueller: “Any federal regulation enacted by Congress or by executive order of the President offending the constitutional rights of my citizens shall not be enforced by me or by my deputies, nor will I permit the enforcement of any unconstitutional regulations or orders by federal officers within the borders of Linn County Oregon.”

From Larimer County, Colorado Sheriff Justin Smith:

Colorado was established with the Constitutional Office of Sheriff. Statutes define the specific duties of the Sheriff, but through tradition and law, it is clear, the Sheriff’s duties include the absolute obligation to protect the Rights of the citizens of the county, and the Sheriff is accountable directly to those citizens. The Colorado Sheriff occupies this independent office which is not a subservient department of county, state or federal government.

As Sheriff, I will not:
• Enforce unconstitutional federal laws
• Obey unconstitutional laws
• Allow others to violate the Constitutional Rights of those in my county

If a conversation with a local police officer is representative of police more broadly, the feelings within that community are similar to those within sheriffs’ offices. But the police chiefs’ political situations, generally reporting to local elected politicians to whom they are beholden for their appointed jobs, puts them in a trickier position regarding public displays of affection for the Constitution.
