A Maryland sheriff has declared the state’s new gun control law unconstitutional and is asking county officials to support selective enforcement of the measure.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that Garrett County Sheriff Robert Corley voiced his opposition to the law at Tuesday’s county commissioners meeting and presented the panel with a resolution he says protects citizens’ rights.

“I believe that the [Maryland Firearms Safety Act] violates the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution that clearly states, ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed,'” Corley was quoted as saying.

Corley said he plans to reserve enforcement of the new law except when someone is suspected of a violent crime, has been convicted of a prior felony or has been adjudicated with a dangerous mental illness.

“I’m asking you to join me in my commitment to the law-abiding citizens of Garrett County because such enforcement will greatly reduce the likelihood of criminalizing law-abiding citizens,” said Corley.
