Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin has joined several other Oregon sheriffs in sending a letter to Vice President Joe Biden. He and sheriffs from Grant, Linn and Crook Counties oppose potential federal laws that could affect law-abiding gun owners.
The sheriffs say they will not enforce laws that they believe violate the 2nd amendment to the constitution. Sheriff Hanlin says he has heard from Douglas County residents who are concerned about how they would be affected if gun control measures were enacted. "People were getting fairly anxious about that."
