LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Indiana county northwest of Cincinnati is taking a stand against federal gun laws.

Franklin County commissioners recently adopted what they call the Second Amendment Preservation Act.

It says all federal laws on gun control violate the U.S. constitution's second amendment, and that they should be considered null and void in Franklin County.

"This is just another piece of the puzzle that we do need to step up and hold our public officials accountable for their oath to the constitution," says Franklin County Commissioner Scott McDonough.

County leaders say in terms of gun rights, residents they've heard from have overwhelmingly expressed their support of the Second Amendment Preservation Act.
