    OK senator files bills to give OK sheriffs power to arrest federal officers

    Posted: Jan 6, 2022 / 09:44 PM CST / Updated: Jan 6, 2022 / 09:44 PM CST

    OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An Oklahoma State Senator filed three bills designed to increase the power wielded by Oklahoma sheriffs, including a bill that empowers sheriffs to arrest federal officers who attempt to confiscate guns.

    State Senator Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, filed the bills on Thursday.

    “I’ve heard from numerous sheriffs and constituents across this state who are concerned at the consistent ignoring of our Constitution happening by this rogue regime” Dahm said. “The Second Amendment was never solely about hunting unless you’re referring to hunting tyrants. It was about the people being able to protect themselves against a government that would seek to disarm them.”

    Senate Bill 1199 allows sheriffs to arrest federal officers who attempt to confiscate guns in Oklahoma.

    Senate Bill 1200 requires federal agents and officers to receive permission from the county sheriff before operating in their county.

    Senate Bill 1201 expands a sheriff’s ability to form a posse to include prohibiting agents, employees and officers of the federal government from violating the constitutional rights of the people of their county.

    “The full totalitarian leftist takeover of a society has always been predicated on confiscation of firearms,” Dahm said. “Thankfully in Oklahoma we have county sheriffs that would never allow that to take place. But we must do everything possible to help them stand up for our rights and this bill further enables them to do that.”

    Such legislation is written to play to far right Republicans, said Michael Crespin, a University of Oklahoma Professor of Political Science and Director and Curator of the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center.

    “There can be a fine line between pandering and legitimate legislation. There is probably a subset of the population that would be happy if these bills were to pass and become law and view these bills as legitimate legislation,” Crespin said. “The Republican Party has a super majority in the legislature so there is some possibility that bills like this can gain traction. That being said, proposing legislation like this is clearly aimed at the far right of the Republican Party and earns a great deal of media attention and potentially fundraising activity.”

      I wonder if this Liberal fucktard has said this about the myriad of Democrat bills that pander or downright feed red meat to their base?

                  Too many people, either lying or genuinely ignorant, don't get that the Bill of Rights, each Amendment, is a restriction on the government... not the people.
                  The Founding Fathers were too well mannered to write:
                  The following are things you cannot do to the people of America.
                  Warning.... DO NOT FUCK WITH THEM!
                  Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

                    Sounds sexy but this is just another cases of Americans being pitted against other Americans. Politics is dividing us like never before and this is the shit that happens. I get their logic but these are dangerous (politically and practically) times.

                      The left announced "sanctuary cities" when President Trump was fighting America's invasion of illegals. The media did not call those cities a threat. The states are exercising their Constitutional rights.
                      Somebody needs to do so once in a while, if not daily.
                      America is already clearly divided. The elite and their Covidian lapdogs VS the rest of us.

                        The other way to look at this is if they can in fact do this, then what is to stop NY from continuing along with what they are doing even if it's against the constitution?

                        100% agreed. The left goes deep, the right reacts (because Repugs have forgotten how to be proactive and seem to only respond (usually very slowly) to kicks in our constitutional nuts), eventually the extremes become even more extreme. Politicians get face time in the press, we get screwed deeper.

                          Yeah, perfect example of where this needs to go. The Federal government has blatantly violated its Constitutional obligation to protect the border and enforce immigration. ICE has been neutered. Border police have been turned into motel and paperwork staff. Red states should immediately pass legislation ignoring Federal authority to deal with it so they can do it on their own. They have started doing this to a certain extent (Texas building their wall, using National Guard), but only a few states have started running with the ball, and waaaay too late in the game. **At least 2 million illegals last year alone.** **One million illegals now allowed to vote in NYC.** This shit has got to stop.
