A small county in North Carolina voted last week to declare itself a “gun sanctuary.”
The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 on March 6 for a symbolic resolution. It says, in part, that the county will defy efforts by state or federal government to enforce strict gun-control laws, Fox News reports.
Written by County Commissioner Dan Eichenbaum, the resolution cites the Second Amendment and the right to “keep and bear arms” for protection, The Cherokee Scout reported.
A 3-2 majority of the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution Monday night to declare this a “gun sanctuary county.”
The three-page resolution runs through the history of constitutional law as it relates to the Second Amendment and the right to “keep and bear arms for self-defense, personal safety, protection of one’s family, and in defense of one’s community and county.”
Much like immigration sanctuary cities refuse to enforce some immigration laws laid down by the federal government, Cherokee County has resolved it will not authorize any funds or county manpower to enforce any act that will “infringe on the right by the people to keep and bear arms as described.”
“Therefore, the Cherokee County Government will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers or offices for the purpose of enforcing or assisting in the enforcement of any element of such acts, laws, orders, mandates, rules or regulations, that infringe on the right by the people to keep and bear arms as described and defined in detail above.”

For years Democrats have been attacking firearms and the 2nd Amendment, to the point where counties across our nation are being forced to declare themselves a “gun sanctuary” that will not enforce any state or federal laws that go against the 2nd Amendment rights.
People need to stop believing that the 2nd Amendment will never fall and that their rights will never be revoked, the fight is real and it is getting far worse on a daily basis. The left will never stop until they achieve an unarmed society.
