    so the sheriff gets to choose what laws he believes in when it comes to guns. So how would this work exactly can a gun nut shoot someone and if the sheriff decides it is ok it is?

    While i doubt that will fly in the courts, there is a tradition of letting the local law enforcer decide certain aspects of gun ownership. For instance, if you want an automatic, and your state allows it, you have to have consent from your LEO.

    That's a whole different story though from having that person determine the constitutionality of federal and state law. I'd say that's above the pay grade of most sheriffs. Way above.

    Prefontaine was from North Bend, and that was why he could run so fast: he was practiced in trying to get away from those people.
