The Irony, It Burns

From the Washington Examiner

Virginia Democratic officials, however, already say local law enforcement supporting these resolutions will face consequences if they do not carry out any law the state Legislature passes. 

“I would hope they either resign in good conscience, because they cannot uphold the law which they are sworn to uphold, or they're prosecuted for failure to fulfill their oath,” Democratic Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly told the Washington Examiner of local county police who may refuse to enforce future gun control measures. “The law is the law. If that becomes the law, you don't have a choice, not if you're a sworn officer of the law.”
The quote is in reference to counties forming Second Amendment sanctuaries. Note that the Second Amendment refers to the US Constitution.

Now consider how Democrats actively thwart and pervert immigration laws. Immigration is not protected under the US Constitution.

The irony, it burns.


  1. I find it interesting that a different approach is being taken in Virginia than in New York or Colorado. In both of those states, sheriffs said something like "it's a state law - it's up to the state to enforce it".
    And yes, the irony is completely lost on Democrats who have long used arbitrary standards and unequal enforcement to foster their priorities.

  2. Oh, and as far as "the law is the law, you must enforce it", not really - officers, their chiefs, and attorneys can't cite or prosecute everything. they have discretion in what they make an issue of and they get pushback from their constituents if what they enforce isn't liked. Some keep going and make things worse; others learn from their mistakes and adjust their actions - remember, in most states law enforcement officers first job is to keep the peace.

  3. If "our friends, the liberals" didn't have double standards, they would have no standards whatsoever.

  4. Form an elite corps of legislators to enforce their unconstitutonal laws.
