Sheriff Gilbertson joins law enforcement across the nation in opposing gun control proposals
Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson has joined countless other law enforcement officials across the country in opposing the gun control proposals of the Obama administration.
According to the Associated Press, Obama announced today he is pushing congress to pass legislation that will ban military assault weapons and high capacity ammunition. He additionally has enacted 23 executive actions that do not require the support of lawmakers.
In Gilbertson’s letter addressed to Vice President Joe Biden Gilbertson says, “The Constitution, and Bill of Rights, guarantees liberties to the people. According to these documents, the Executive and Judicial branches were to have NO lawmaking powers. The question then becomes how is it “executive” orders can be enforced as if they were laws?”
Gilbertson goes on to say, “Any rule, regulation, or executive order repugnant to the constitutional rights of the citizens of this county will be ignored by this office.”
