    Let's assume for the moment that a bill passes that limits new magazine loads, requires all gun purchases to have background checks, and bolsters the background check data base. Any county sheriff could easily ignore those laws and who would know? It is only when you have a mandatory confiscation, sale or buy back of specific weapons, like New York State, that you need the local county sheriff's help. We know that many local police organizations ignored the first AWB and I would expect that many will ignore the New York law and anything similar done on a national basis. However, few will go public with their plan to turn a blind eye.
