The El Dorado County Sheriff has fired off an anti-gun control letter to Vice President Joe Biden.
"It is well known and proven with facts, not emotional inference, that gun control of any kind, has no effect on the reduction of crime, anywhere," wrote Sheriff John D'Agostini.
The letter, also sent out as a press release, was written to Biden Jan. 17.
The Obama administration is trying to get congressional support for a package of gun-control proposals, including an assault rifle ban. Biden helped formulate the proposals.
The gun control proposals come following the December shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school that left 20 children and six staffers dead.
