We're all citizen police when it comes right down to it but unfortunately I think a lot of people and sheriff departments are buffaloed by the feds into thinking they have some sort of superior rights over the states and the people. This sheriff has a spot on look at how sheriffs in this country ought to be protecting us all from abuse by federal "authorities" including any crappy, unconstitutional gun laws.
For years now I've been advocating the Power of the Nations County Sherrif's as the true authority within their Counties. The media portrays them as country bumpkins who fall over themselves to serve the Fed's.
Unfortunately many of them believe this themselves...Sheriff Meuller obviously does not.
County Sherrifs are not only the TOP COP in there County, they are also the Constitutionally recognized Commanders of the Militia with the Authority to call up and position forces for the Defence of the County.
The Courage of Sherrif Meuller an hopefully many more like him, could prove to be the last check against Federal Encroachment and the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.
He's only about 1 hour South of me. Should he make the call, I will answer.
