Some Oregon Sheriffs Vow Not To Enforce Parts Of Gun Control Measure


Reported By: KomoNews

Multiple Oregon sheriffs say they will refuse to enforce gun magazine capacities called for in Measure 114, which appears to be passing by a slim margin.

On Nov. 9, the day after Election Day, Linn County Sheriff Michelle Duncan posted to the agency’s Facebook page saying that she would refuse to enforce magazine capacity.

“I want to send a clear message to Linn County residents that the Linn County Sheriff’s Office is NOT going to be enforcing magazine capacity limits,” the post reads. “This measure is poorly written and there is still a lot that needs to be sorted out regarding the permitting process, who has to do the training and what exactly does the training have to cover.”

Since the post was made, at least two more Oregon sheriffs have also vowed not to uphold the measure.

Union County Sheriff Cody Bowen posted to social media applauding and jumping on board with Duncan’s statement.

“As Union County Sheriff I agree 100% with Sheriff Duncan! This is an infringement on our constitutional rights and will not be enforced by my office,” his post reads. “This measure will only harm law abiding gun owners and result in wasted time with additional redundant background checks.”

Malheur County Sheriff Brian Wolfe said in an interview that he also does not intend to enforce magazine capacity limits.

“That is just the way it’s going to be. We have already made that decision,” he said. “The supreme law of the land is a constitution of the United States, and I believe that this measure is totally contrary to the Constitution.”

When asked whether he believes a sheriff has the authority to supersede state law, Wolfe said, “I don’t think this is superseding anything. I don’t believe that I am superseding state law by not enforcing it. Anybody in law enforcement, including the state police, including the governor, has to pick and choose what laws they are going to be able to enforce.”

The Oregon State Sheriff’s Association has come out against the measure saying it would drain resources from state and county law enforcement offices that would be charged with issuing permits to anyone wishing to purchase a firearm.

However, Wolfe said he will not stand in the way of that portion of the measure and would train personnel to issue permits. He said he does not believe the bill is necessary because “the real problem is the mental health issues.”

“Nobody that is reasonably capable of thinking rationally would ever want to go and shoot another person,” he said.

When asked whether he believes that statement removes the agency and intent of violent criminals, he said, “All I can tell you is I’ve been in this business for 35 years. I see it out on the streets.”
