    The court confirms and asserts that "the duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county and has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state OR federal official." And you thought the 10th Amendment was dead and buried — not in Wyoming, not yet.

    But it gets even better. Since the judge stated that the sheriff "has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state OR federal official," the Wyoming sheriffs are flexing their muscles. They are demanding access to all BATF files. Why? So as to verify that the agency is not violating provisions of Wyoming law that prohibits the registration of firearms or the keeping of a registry of firearm owners. This would be wrong.

    then it is just another wasted day.

    Being declared highest authority of law in the county is one thing, gaining access to BATFE files outside of just asking is something else. I'd like to see how that flexing muscle goes. With that said, good for Wyoming!

    As for the 10th Amendment, North Carolina has had it expressly stated in the Statutes (although I need to find it again) that no Federal or International organization operating under Federal permission has any law enforcement powers in the state of North Carolina except in the case of a life-threatening situation or with permission and assistance from a local law enforcement agency.

    That means, FBI, BATFE, DEA, NCIS, INS, U.S. Postal Inspector, U.S. Marhsal, Secret Service, etc, etc, etc have no arrest authority in this state, and thank God.

    The Sheriff is the highest law in the land of the county. It turns out, our Attorney General - Roy Cooper, is the highest LEO (peace officer) in the State. State Bureau of Investigations only has original authority in a few cases, same goes for Highway Patrol, N.C. Alcohol Law Enforcement, and DMV Officers.
