WASHINGTON, DC (FOX19) -

Sheriff Richard K. Jones, in Washington, D.C., attending committee meetings of the National Sheriff's Association (NSA), displayed great opposition this afternoon to new gun legislation proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. 

During a Congressional Affairs Committee meeting of the NSA, of which Jones is a committee member, James Molinari, State Director for Senator Feinstein, and Jonathan Thessin, Counsel to Senator Feinstein's Judiciary Committee, made a presentation asking the 30 members in attendance at the NSA's Committee to help support Feinstein's controversial proposed gun legislation. 

Jones indicated the he believes Senator Feinstein's proposals have actually created more fear in the eyes of a lot of Ohioans, and has done nothing more than drive up the number of gun sales here, and asked them to tell the Senator that.

Sheriff Jones will be returning to Ohio after the completion of NSA committee meetings on Friday.
