(CNSNEWS) — President Barack Obama’s gun control measures reflect his commitment to the Second Amendment, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday, adding that local law enforcement should enforce any measures passed at the federal level.

The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) has the support of 381 sheriffs and the cooperation of 15 state sheriff associations asserting they would not enforce federal or state gun laws they consider unconstitutional.

The list posted on the CSPOA website included sheriffs and associations from states that traditionally support Democrats, including Obama’s home state, the Illinois Sheriffs Association.
