According to Virginia’s Attorney-General, Second Amendment “sanctuary” cities [and counties] have no force in law.
“Neither local governments nor local constitutional officers have the authority to declare state statutes unconstitutional or decline to follow them on that basis,” Herring wrote in the opinion. “Neither the Federal Constitution nor Virginia law recognizes any ‘anti-commandeering’ principle that allows localities or local constitutional officers to refuse to participate in the enforcement of state law.”
Really? So you’re insisting that police department have to enforce blatantly un-Constitutional laws, despite their oaths to the contrary? So if, say, under an overwhelmingly Republican-controlled legislature and ditto governor a state law was passed which forbade the practice of Islam in Virginia, that would be all tickety-boo and Virginian police departments could start arresting Muslims outside mosques, while halaal butcheries and restaurants would be declared illegal and shut down?
Asking for a friend.
