Oregon: Linn County Sheriff threatening not to enforce propose gun control laws facing recall threats

Sheriff Tim Mueller, who wrote the VP Biden stating that he will not enforce gun control laws that he feels violate the Second Amendment, cannot be fired by the Linn County Board of Commissioners, though there is talk of a recall. 
Petitioners would have 90 days to collect 6,231 signatures (15% of turnout in the last gubernatorial election). 
The articles notes that the last time a Linn County official was recalled was 1982, and that was due to lying in the voter pamphlet and misappropriating funds.
