[Ed. – Following Obama’s example of picking and choosing which laws to uphold.]
The Oregon sheriff who is running the investigation into the Roseburg college shooting is a campaigner against gun control who has lobbied the Obama administration.
Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin wrote a letter to Vice President Joe Biden in January 2013, one month after the Sandy Hook atrocities, defending the right to bear arms, protected by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
‘Gun control is NOT the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings,’ Hanlin wrote.
He also said he would not enforce or allow any federal agents to enforce regulation enacted by Congress to further gun control.
The sheriff has refused to publicly name Chris-Harper-Mercer, the 26-year-old gunman behind the campus shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, that killed nine, saying naming him will only give him the notoriety he sought.
