Sheriff Curtis Landers

Lincoln County Sheriff Curtis Landers, regardless of his disagreement with it, said he will enforce Measure 114, which creates additional licensing requirements for gun ownership and limits magazine capacity. Landers added that he expects the new law will face legal roadblocks before it is implemented.

A statement released Tuesday by Landers, who publicly criticized the measure prior to passage, said he’s received multiple inquiries and that the new law is complex. It’s set to take effect Dec. 8 at midnight 30 days after the election. Unofficial results have “yes” votes winning 59.9 to 49.1 percent.
