There’s not enough information to determine the precise facts yet, but on the surface, it appears that Sheriff Nicholas Finch of Bristol Florida was attempting to protect and defend the citizens’ 2nd amendment rights by refusing to arrest a man with a concealed carry gun (arrested man did not have a CCW).
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

If the state law requires he have a permit, the man is breaking the law without a permit.

Maybe I'm wrong, but we're not at the point where we can start thumbing our noses at the laws of the state/nation and do whatever we want without fear of reprisals.

Yet.

The law is illegal and the sheriff knows it and has upheld his oath. The sheriff is right the governor is acting illegally and violating his oath. This is what happens when we drink the kool-aid. When someone does the right thing we make it out to be wrong.

Shockingly Rick Scott is a Republican.. A dick head republican that claims to be pro-gun yet doesn't understand the constitution.

Pffft what a joke. Law enforcement decide who to arrest and who to ignore on a daily basis. If the individual had committed no crime and was able to obtain a permit (not prohibited) I applaud the sheriff, provided it wasn't cronyism.

Technically, the Sheriff can make a really good case that he decided to not enforce an illegal law. Illegal because it violates the 2A - "shall not be infringed" and all.

Now, if he has the resources to take this so far, the question will be: "Does SCotUS agree?"

Rather SCOTUS agrees or not isn't relevant. Sheriffs can not be forced to violate their oaths, neither can any other government employee except that military have a higher hurdle. If they believe it is a violation SCOTUS decisions mean nothing.

Refusing to arrest somebody is prerogative...altering/destroying official records to 'void' the arrest is where he went wrong.

Quote:Investigators allege that Finch destroyed or removed official arrest documents from the Liberty County Jail, making it appear as though an arrest never occurred. The investigation revealed that a Liberty County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrested a Liberty County resident on March 8, 2013 for carrying a concealed firearm, a third degree felony. Shortly after the suspect was booked into the Liberty County Jail, Finch allegedly released the suspect and altered or destroyed documents associated with his arrest.
