How is a government official refusing to do his job, or entire cities ignoring federal law, not related to a government official refusing to do her job? Show me the relevant statute under NC state law.
Of course Republicans were complaining. My comment was not directed at them. It was directed at Democrats or liberals like yourself, who supported his decision not to do his job. So it's OK for government employees not to do their job, as long as you don't like the law? Brilliant! In the spirit of compromise, I propose we make magistrates have to resign or perform all marriages. In return, sanctuary cities will stop violating federal immigration law.
I'm referring to the argument structure (ie. we regulate x, people who like x have to suck up and move on), not the content, obviously. Yes, I said you support bans on guns. Notice I did not say all guns. That being said - do you or do you not support a ban on 'assault weapons'? Yes, you do. Lol. I lied because I don't think it's rational to ban assault weapons or have a gun registry? Wat? The essence of 'reasonable' would be to respect the constitutional rights of gun owners. The essence of unreasonable is to expect them not to get upset or fight back when you want to take their guns away.
I probably should have worded that more artfully. What I meant was that you would be pissed off if I took that same argument you made, but instead of using it to justify gun control, used it to justify abortion restrictions.
