(AP) An Oregon sheriff has written Vice President Joe Biden to say his department won't enforce any new gun laws it considers unconstitutional.

In his letter, Sheriff Tim Mueller of Linn County said politicians are attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims by supporting laws that would harm law-abiding Americans.

Mueller says he took an oath to support the Constitution, and laws preventing citizens from owning certain semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines would violate their rights.

Though the letter might add fuel to an already hot topic, Mueller told The Associated Press he wishes people could have a civilized discussion about the issue, rather than resort to threats and name-calling.
