Sheriffs Have Mixed Opinions on Gun-Control

Sheriffs in southcentral Kentucky have varied positions on President Barack Obama’s gun control proposals. Some, such as Simpson County Sheriff Chris Cline, completely oppose the proposals, saying such laws would infringe on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. The intention behind Obama’s gun control proposals was to ensure people are safe, Warren County Sheriff Jerry “Peanuts” Gaines said. “Different people will go to extremes about what the president has said,” Gaines said. “But I think he’s just trying to protect the people.”
