SHERIFF D'AGOSTINI holds a pocket size edition of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights in his hand as he speaks to a group March 7 at the Office of Education in Placerville about his duty to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Democrat photo by Pat Dollins

John D’Agostini, sheriff of El Dorado County, discussed and debated a number of gun-related issues at last week’s meeting of the Democratic Women of El Dorado County. More than 80 attended, nearly filling a large conference room at the county Office of Education. Some were there to challenge the sheriff’s highly public and publicized remarks on gun control and the Second Amendment, while others were eager to learn more about the county’s chief law enforcement officer’s views and positions on crime and related issues.
