More sheriffs in Oregon say they oppose potential federal laws that could affect law-abiding gun owners.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports that sheriffs from Douglas, Grant and Crook counties have followed Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller’s lead in telling Vice President Joe Biden in a letter that they wouldn’t work with federal officials to enforce potential gun laws they consider unconstitutional.

Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin says he expects more of the 36 Oregon sheriffs to respond.

Sheriffs such as Craig Zanni in Coos County and Mike Winters in Jackson County have made public statements backing Second Amendment rights but not written to Biden.
