Weeks after President Obama unveiled his gun control plan, the new Martin County Sheriff said he will do all he can to defend the 2nd Amendment.
Snyder said he supports broader background screenings, but is against an assault weapons ban and ban on high-capacity magazines.
There is a caption on the Sheriff's Facebook page which reads, "Local law enforcement authorities are not empowered to enforce Federal law."
The Sheriff's Office said Snyder's career in law enforcement spans over 33 years, beginning in 1973 at the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Snyder joined the Martin County Sheriff's Office in 1993, retiring in 2006 to become a Florida State Legislator.
He won election to become Martin County's eighth Sheriff in November.
