After reading your column of May 6, “... Preservation County,” I am compelled to again remind your readers of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative darling, who said, “There are no absolute rights” (paraphrased). He was speaking directly to a Supreme Court decision involving Second Amendment rights.
I’m not sure what Commissioner Lee Livingston was referring to when he made the comment about “what’s shaken out in the administration east of here.” If he’s referring to President Biden’s (yes, he’s the president) executive order requiring serial numbers on key components of “ghost guns,” it seems to me nothing more than closing a loophole. If it’s already illegal to tamper with a gun’s serial number (it is), then it should be illegal to possess a gun with no serial number. Oh wait ... it is! Perhaps the commissioner is referring to the way the president doubled on his promise on COVID vaccine delivery?
And then there’s the state Legislature. Law enforcement (WASCOP) had some problems with that one, as you pointed out in your article. Your information about Senate File 81, that sought to invalidate “any federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules and regulations ...” seems frightening in its scope. Referring back to my opening sentence, the Supreme Court decides what’s constitutional, not the Wyoming Legislature. Senate File 81 has the ring of treason. Odd coming from a group who I’m sure are in complete support of “the flag.”
Could it be true what our Rep. Cheney has been saying, that there’s a fascist threat from within, to destroy our democracy?
