The Rule of Man, Redux

As predicted, the culture that a rule of man cultivates eventually comes home to roost.

This week, Oregon passed a state law expanding background check requirements for private sales of firearms. However, Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel has already publicly stated he will not enforce the law. “I can’t enforce that law, so therefore it won’t be enforced. I have felonies going on daily in Josephine County. That’s my priorities.” This reasoning sounds eerily similar to the administration’s declared unwillingness to thoroughly enforce federal immigration laws.

I wonder if people are just incapable of recognizing how their own running roughshod of the laws they oppose inherently opens the door for others to do the same on laws they support, of if they are simply so shortsighted that they are unwilling to recognize or acknowledge this relationship.

In the end, we reap what we sow.
