SHERIFFS DECLARE THEY WON'T ENFORCE NEW GUN PLANS

When I saw the recent news coverage about the sheriffs across America who dared to speak up about the new gun plans, I was elated and relieved. Some were candid, others were very careful, but all made it clear their choice to NOT enforce new proposed gun rules was based on the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment about the right to own and bear arms.

Many veterans are also concerned about the President's new gun control plans. They insist they will resist any move they believe infringes on their Second Amendment gun rights.

Some people don't understand why law enforcement officers and veterans would refuse to enforce new gun control laws. To begin with, every sheriff, law enforcement officer, and all military members swear an oath to "protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. " Yes, this includes our own government and any unconstitutional laws they pass.

Cop in influence scandal defied superiors in past, records show

A former Nassau sergeant under investigation for his role in the political-influence controversy that cost Police Commissioner Thomas Dale his job defied orders and talked back to frustrated superiors who saw him appeal directly to the commissioner's office to avoid discipline, department records show.

Sgt. Salvatore Mistretta's supervisors filed disciplinary paperwork against him in early October accusing him of inappropriate conduct and tried to discipline him again in late October for insubordination. But Chief of Department Steven Skrynecki told Mistretta's supervisors that it was a "difficult time for the commissioner," and they agreed to delay further discipline until after the Nov. 5 election, according to a source familiar with the discussions.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice began an investigation that same month that ultimately led to the ouster of Dale.
