Sheriffs taking their oath to the Constitution seriously

When Sheriffs take office, are they not required to take an oath to defend the Constitution? The Denver Post ignores that today in its editorial entitled Sheriffs going rogue on guns.

Bob Belvedere at The Camp of the Saints blog weighs in on the topic:

All officials who take an oath to The Constitution are individually responsible for assuring that it not be violated. Further, by said oath they are obligated not to enforce any law or regulation that they believe would cause them to violate their oaths. If someone disagrees, the matter may be settled in a court of law, but oath-taking officials do have this power/responsibility. And they should not fear exercising it. It’s their duty.
