Oregon Sheriffs Push Back on President Obama's Proposed Gun Measures


Sheriffs are already pushing back saying they won't enforce some of the executive orders -- including Crook County Sheriff Jim Hensley.

 

Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton also says he's got some problems with the proposed changes.

 

"First and foremost, I support the constitution of the United States and the second amendment.  As long as I'm elected sheriff, I'll protect that.  We have ten thousand concealed weapons permits and we process 300 a month.  The President issued a lot of executive orders that I don't support."

 

President Obama signed 23 executive orders concerning gun control -- some of them beef up the national criminal background check system.

 

He also wants congress to implement mandatory background checks on all gun purchases, reinstate a ban on some assault style weapons and ban high capacity magazines that hold more than ten rounds.
