Nevada sheriff invokes Hitler in letter to governor announcing she won’t enforce new gun law

Published

on

A county sheriff in Nevada has decided she knows better than the people of Nevada, and has declared she will refuse to enforce a gun background bill backed by the majority of Nevada residents, and signed into law by Governor Steve Sisolak (D-NV) last month, 3News Las Vegas reports.

“Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly announced on Thursday that she considers the new law, which seeks to prevent gun buyers from avoiding background checks by obtaining weapons through unlicensed sellers, violates the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution.,” the station said Thursday.

Wehrly posted a bizarre, rambling letter Thursday letting the public know her defiant stance, where she invokes Hitler as a defense at one point.

‘In Germany prior to WW2 we saw Hitler place restrictions of the public’s right to bear arms,” she wrote in a letter Thursday. “Then we stood by and watched him seize the firearms,” she continued.

In response to the sheriff’s letter, Governor Sisolak’s office gave local media the following statement:

“My office and that of the attorney general are aware of the letters from multiple rural Nevada sheriffs regarding SB143. While the law will not take effect until January 2020, I look forward to working with Attorney General Ford and local law enforcement over the next several months to review ways to enforce this law, as is the case with all other Nevada laws that elected officers are sworn to uphold.”

Since Election Day 2016, America has been in a state of mourning.

Donald Trump's Independence Day speeches offered more of the almost never-ending funeral ceremonies for America's democracy, dignity and decency. Instead of trumpet-like exhortations to American greatness and goodness on the country's birthday, Trump chose to deliver horribly off-key funeral dirges.

‘I hear from psychiatrists weekly’ who warn about the president’s ‘mental incapacity’: Trump biographer

Published

on

Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio told CNN on Friday that he's been in regular contact with professional psychiatrists who believe President Donald Trump lacks the mental capabilities to handle his job.

During a panel discussion about the president's mental health, D'Antonio spilled the beans about what some experts are telling him they see in the president's behavior and speech patterns.

"I hear from psychiatrists on a weekly basis about a different measure of the president, and that's whether he suffers from mental incapacity," D'Antonio explained. "That's a very different category and goes to whether he can perform his job."

Trump’s superpower is distraction — but we finally found his kryptonite

Published

on

Donald Trump is dumb — so dumb he literally suggested on live television that scientists should explore injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure the coronavirus. But due to what appears to be a serious and undiagnosed personality disorder — his niece Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, suggests it's likely narcissism or sociopathy — Trump managed to stumble backwards into a strategy that works well with the 24-hour cable news ecosystem of national politics. Actually, "strategy" may be too strong a word, but it's inarguable that Trump's short attention span, impulsive nature and all-consuming corruption have meant a constant deluge of scandals and outrages, with each one knocking the last one out of the headlines.
