ROSEBURG, Ore. — Three Oregon sheriffs say they won’t offend the constitutional rights of citizens when it comes to gun control.
They’ve all written letters for Vice President Joe Biden.
In his letter, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin, it says gun control is not the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings and that he will not permit the enforcement of any unconstitutional regulations or orders by federal officers within the borders of Douglas County.
A similar letter was sent by Crook County Sheriff Jim Hensley highlighting the same defiance against the president’s gun control plan. Hensley also says, “I refuse to participate or stand idly by while my citizens are turned into criminals due to to the unconstitutional actions of misguided politicians.”
Here is a copy of the Sheriff Hanlin’s letter:
