Apparently the “right” is learning how to play the game by the “left’s” rules.
An overwhelming majority of board members in Effingham County, Illinois, decided to “flip the script” this week and declare itself a “sanctuary” for gun owners.
Effingham County State’s Attorney Bryan Kibler and board member David Campbell called a barrage of gun-control bills working their way through the Illinois House and Senate a clear signal that it’s time to “take a stand.”
The men joined “Fox & Friends First” on Thursday to discuss a new Second Amendment resolution that passed along an 8-1 vote.
We “decided it’s time for someone to take a hard stand,” Mr. Campbell told the network.
The resolution reads: “If the Government of the State of Illinois shall infringe upon the inalienable rights granted by the Second Amendment, Effingham County shall become a ‘sanctuary county’ for all firearms.”
State Police vs. County Sheriff’s Department? That could get REALLY interesting….April 22, 2018 at 1:59 am #68447
Well technically the Sheriff is the most powerful LEO in the county, state and Feds technically have to ask permission to operate within the county.

Exactly my point. The problem is, too many sheriffs don’t “get” what their role is, or what their power is. Maybe we could ALL become instant deputies just like Sheriff Taylor did on occasion in Mayberry. Now wouldn’t THAT be fun! We could have authority to do what we actually believe it! Wheeee! But not in my county. Now, if I lived in the next county north…. (hee hee!) The layers of “interesting” are getting interestinger.April 23, 2018 at 2:08 pm #68622
Part of the problem stems from the sheriffs relationship with the county commissioners.
Good commissioners and the Sheriff is often one of those we appreciate.
Bad commissioners and the fight is on.
Our local Sheriff for example.
Our commissioners hate the Sheriff and won’t allow him to fill vacant positions. Right now we are 6 deputies down across the county. And they don’t want the deputies patrolling the other side of the county. Which means a 30+ minute response time for many things.
Even the jail was below mandated minimums and they were forced to hire people, much to the displeasure of the commissioners. Who’s to tell them what to do?
The law? Bah.
Gonna stop there before the rabbit hole widens up.
