“Mayor Kevin Smith, of Helena-West Helena, said today that his city will defy any new State law preventing local law enforcement from cooperating with Federal law enforcement agencies when enforcing Federal gun crime laws,” the Arkansas Times reports.
Said Smith: “My NRA voting record, as a state senator years ago, was a triple A rating — the best you could get at the time. I understand both the politics and the importance of being vigilant regarding gun rights. But this is going way too far. I am not sure where we would be as a city without the partnerships we have with our US Attorney, the FBI, ATF, and DEA, but I do know it would be much worse than it is already.”Save to Favorites
