    about something that really isn't a local sheriff's main problem.   I am sure that since none of these laws or executive orders contemplate seizures of legally acquired weapons/arrests of people with permits for their legally aquired weapons,  the sheriff has little to worry about.   If they arrest someone on felony charges who has an illegally modified weapon, no permits, well, they weren't law abiding and I am sure the local assistant DA will throw the weapons charge in with the other charges.

    Pretty much it is a way for the sheriff to win political favor with bluster that doesn't mean he does his job any differently.  Keeps the nutcases off his back.
