My state had two gun bills up for passage this year. Several sheriffs sent the new governor letters saying they were unconstitutional and unenforceable. It's a traditon that all the county sheriffs come in Santa Fe to meet and welcome the new governor when they take office. She refused to let them in the Roundhouse (state capitol building) unless they disarmed. All the sheriffs about faced and left so things started off on a bad note. One of the laws passed, the other did not. 26 of the 33 sheriffs sent her letters stating that both laws were unconstitutional and unenforceable and that they had sworn an oath to uphold the constitution and would devote no resources to enforcing either law before they were passed. Now that one law is passed they have received a letter from out AG worded almost identically to the one in the OP.
Since then the governor has reached out for a teleconference with the sheriffs. Both made a statement afterwards. Our sheriff said it was polite and each side exchanged their views but that was it and things remained as they were. The governor issued a statement praising the conference and saying a great deal was accomplished. Someone is lying and I'm taking our sheriff at his word. He has a history as a cop and a good one. She has a history as a politican and has been caught in numerous lies before becoming governor.
