Idaho Sheriffs Won't Limit Gun Rights

Idaho law officers won't help federal agents seize assault rifles or illegal ammunition – nor are they even being asked to do so, despite rumors to the contrary. Mike Kane, a former deputy attorney general turned lobbyist for the Idaho Sheriffs' Association, said the 23 executive orders signed by President Barack Obama issued last week primarily address things like background checks, education and reporting requirements. “I've read them and there's nothing that says it's up to my officers to seize guns or gun parts or ammunition,” he said. “There's a rumor going around that we're being put in a position to seize guns for the feds, but it's not in the executive orders anywhere”/William Spence, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Do you support the stand of the Idaho Sheriffs Association not to help federal agents seize assault rifles and illegal ammo?
