Dozens of police officers across the country have promised they wont enforce any new gun laws that might arise from President Barrack Obama's suggestions after what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary.
A few of those officers patrol right here in the Mountain State.
Monongalia County Sheriff Al Kisner, isn't one of them.
Kisner told 5 News he wants more information before he makes a judgment. He did mention that there are laws he doesn't agree with, but because of his job he must enforce them.
Kisner also mentioned that here in the Mountain State there is a Sheriff's Association who has been following along with the developments out of Washington. He said he would like to hear from them before moving forward.
"What's the final product," Kisner questioned. "If it's unconstitutional it'll end up in front of the Supreme Court, and they'll decide whether of not we'll have to enforce it."
Sheriffs in Boone County, Roane County, Wood County, and Raleigh County have gone on record saying they won't enforce any laws that they believe violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
