Coos County: “Our Sheriff will tell us what’s constitutional about buying and selling guns and no one else!”
In Tuesday’s election in Coos County, 60 percent of voters told their sheriff that he, and only he, will be the “decider” on which gun laws are legal or not legal, in Coos County. The sheriff has already declared he doesn’t have the staff or the time to enforce Oregon’s recently enacted laws pertaining to background checks for private gun sales.
Two other Oregon counties have emerged to take similar approaches to regulating gun ownership. In reaction, many groups supporting stricter gun controls say just because a group of voters pass a ballot issue doesn’t make it legal and predicted that the vote will be eventually struck down as unconstitutional.
