“I will not allow gun confiscation in my county and I will not enforce any additional antigun laws,” The GOP sheriff said to loud applause.

After Rogers’ comments were publicized, the response from media outlets and others was more mixed. Editorials in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette and the South Bend Tribune have taken Rogers to task over his position. Recent letters to the editor in The Goshen News have been pro and con.

Figuratively speaking, Rogers is sticking to his guns.

“As sheriff, as a leader, I feel I have an obligation to provide input on things that will affect our county,” he said during an interview with The News. Rogers feels this includes issues related to gun control, gun laws and the Second Amendment."
