A northern Kentucky county has taken a stand against proposed federal restrictions on gun rights.
The Boone County Fiscal Court approved a resolution against the enforcement of any federal mandates that may restrict gun ownership.
In passing the resolution 4-0 on Tuesday night, county officials join several other communities that have taken similar stances.
Constitutional law professor John Bickers said Helmig isn't required to enforce such mandates since his authority is granted by the state.
He said federal law enforcement officers would be responsible for carrying out any federal mandates.
