You Were a Former Police Officer in California

There are no longer any Law Enforcement Officers in the state of California. Since California has become a Sanctuary State, the police officers no longer enforce Federal Statutes. Therefore, based on the cite below, they no longer are acting under color of law, but as civilians . . . at their own peril.

Retired LEO, Criminal and Procedural Law Instructor -- 24 years.

The Bill of Rights, the 2nd Amendment is part of the Constitution.
The U.S. Supreme Court, in Scheuer v. Rhodes, 416 U.S. 232, 94 S.Ct. 1683, 1687 (1974) stated that "when a state officer acts under a state law in a manner violative of the Federal Constitution, he "comes into conflict with the superior authority of that Constitution, and he is in that case stripped of his official or representative character and is subjected in his person to the consequences of his individual conduct. The State has no power to impart to him any immunity from responsibility to the supreme authority of the United States."
