Most Americans also believe that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens — not gun bans — would help reduce crime.

As state governments and federal lawmakers who take their oath of office seriously work to crush the Obama administration’s proposed unconstitutional infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, a wave of county sheriffs all across the country is rising up to protect gun rights, too.
