El Paso County Commissioners Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution preemptively rejecting any potential gun control legislation by the Obama administration that could impact 2nd Amendment rights protected by the U.S. Constitution. Dozens of supporters spoke in favor of the resolution, authored by Commissioner Peggy Littleton. "The County Commissioners and the Sheriff, as duly-elected officials sworn to uphold our oath of office, will protect the 2nd Amendment rights of people, even if our Federal government tries to come in and take those away from us," Littleton said.
