Firearms-related stuff is a very new field, since it's only been 2+ years since the Second Amendment even applied to the various States. That's still got afterbirth on it in legal terms. It wasn't until recently that there were enough hand-wringing holplophobes in America to overcome this nation's origins as a gun-friendly republic.

What exactly would we be looking at if Federal agents were denied to operate in a county with a sheriff who will not comply? Would the issue go before a court or would they simply push the sheriff aside to go in?
No one has a crystal ball. The full bell curve of possibilities are in play.

Not true. Politicians care about only one thing: getting re-elected. If they feel passing law X will aid that end, then that law gets passed.
