Edmonson County has been named a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary. Edmonson County residents gathered in the upstairs court room last night for one of the annual nightly Fiscal Court meetings, many that were in support of the resolution.
Resolution EC20-03 passed unanimously with no hesitation or opposition from the county magistrates.
Judge Executive Wil Cannon stated "I would like Edmonson County to be a protected place for our 2nd Amendment rights and all Constitutional rights."
There was little discussion prior to Monday's vote or at the meeting regarding the resolution. A copy of the resolution is pictured below.
A Second Amendment Sanctuary is a term that refers to states, counties, or localities in the United States that have adopted laws or resolutions to protect citizens at local levels from certain state or federal gun control acts that are perceived to violate the Second Amendment. Those measures can include universal gun background checks, high capacity magazine bans, assault weapon bans, red flag laws, etc.
