Federal law trumps state or local laws...UNLESS the state or local laws benefit then the state or local laws prevail. For example. If a federal law says you cannot protect yourself but a state or local law says you can, then the helpful law prevails. Its been like that for years.

The state is no longer representing the people. The laws are contrary to the Constitution. The government is betraying its own people.

Local control of government. No laws shall be passed that infringe on individuals rights. 2 ND amendment is for the citizens to maintain control of their own person and their government. Without it the country will fail.

When laws are contradictory to the Constitution they should not be enforced. When tyranny becomes law disobedience become necessary! STOP VOTING FOR LIBERAL DEMOCRATS

If the state can defy federal laws, the counties should be able to defy state laws.

Every elected official takes an oath to uphold the Constitution and are obligated to ignore any law they believe to believe to be unconstitutional.

No. The Supreme Court decides what is or is not Constitutional, not individuals.

Multnomah County doesn't follow the laws. Portland is quickly becoming like Chicago. Crime and murder are on the rise all over Oregon. Oregon, California and Washington are being destroyed by democrats.

No but, they have the right (and should benefit from it) to deviate from the FEDERAL norms and mandates when warranted. You know the goose and the gander comparisons don't you?..........Same here!

Laws are for everyone. Without our laws we have anarchy. This is a ridiculous question for a "poll".

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.
