Pa. police chief's profanity-laced gun rights videos draw controversy

(Continued)

GILBERTON, Pa. —

Kessler, who is also on the North Schuylkill school board, has successfully lobbied for gun right protections in his hometown. After the Sandy Hook shooting last year led to renewed pushes for gun control, Kessler urged the borough council to adopt a resolution nullifying any federal or state laws that restricted firearm usage, "past, present or future," Salon reports.

The unedited version of Kessler's apology video is available on YouTube. (WARNING: Graphic language.)
