More Oregon sheriffs say they won't enforce new gun laws

PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) — More Oregon sheriffs are joining the chorus saying they would refuse to enforce any new federal gun law they believe are unconstitutional.

Crook County Sheriff Jim Hensley said Tuesday he sent the same letter to Vice President Joe Biden that was sent Monday by Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller.

Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin reiterated that viewpoint in his own letter released after President Barack Obama announced his gun control plan.

Hensley's letter says politicians are attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims in the Connecticut school shooting by supporting laws that would harm law-abiding Americans.
