FILE - In this undated file photo, Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson stands in his office in Grants Pass, Ore. Gilbertson is one of a growing number of rural sheriffs and lawmakers vowing to ignore any new gun control legislation, or even make it a crime for federal officials to enforce federal gun policy. Gilbertson and others have written to Vice President Joe Biden, who headed a gun violence taskforce for the president, saying they will ignore any rule, regulation or executive order they find goes against the Constitution, and will not allow federal officers to enforce them, either.
