Everytown has now decided it *likes* state preemption laws, hopes you won't notice their 180

Started reseaching their stance after reading the following link

Local law enforcement and government officials know best how to keep their communities safe. They should be able to determine local public safety policies, not state legislators...


That, of course, was before. Now, state preemption laws are doubleplusgood:

...Everytown Law represents the residents challenging the ordinance, as does the Oregon-based law firm Stoll Berne. Everytown Law is the litigation arm of Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, which is part of Everytown for Gun Safety.

“The residents we represent expect the county to comply with Oregon law and with the U.S. Constitution, both of which make clear that local governments don’t have the legal authority to pick and choose which public safety laws apply within their borders,” said Eric Tirschwell, managing director for Everytown Law....

1. County Sheriffs need to be appointed not elected.

Reign them in a bit so they don't feel above the laws.

2. County residents voted for the nullification law, not the sheriff

If the sheriff in that county had been appointed, they'd be turfed if they didn't follow the (local) law

6. Let's "appoint" representatives, too, while we're at it...

Congress sometimes needs a bit of reigning in.
