As the debate over gun control rages in Washington, an Indiana county is taking a stand against federal gun laws. Franklin County commissioners recently adopted what they call the Second Amendment Preservation Act, declaring that all federal laws on gun control violate the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.
The act says all federal gun control measures should be considered null and void in Franklin County.
The Sheriff of Franklin County, Ken Murphy, said that he is going to uphold his oath of office, and protect the citizens' rights based on the Constitution.
County leaders say that residents they've heard from have overwhelmingly expressed their support of the Second Amendment Preservation Act.
There could be a problem down the road because The Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution assures the Constitution and federal laws take precedence over state laws.
