The sheriff of Kansas' most populous county says more gun control laws wouldn't have prevented the theater shootings in Colorado or the school shooting in Connecticut.

Johnson County Sheriff Frank Denning says having more responsible people in possession of firearms is a better way to prevent mass shootings.

Denning posted a message on his sheriff's office website Friday likening gun control to "unilateral personal disarmament." He says the Founding Fathers would be spinning in their graves at the idea of politicians imposing restrictions on law-abiding citizens.

Denning has held the elective post of sheriff for more than 11 years.
