    Default Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement Spreads To Kentucky

    Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement Spreads To Kentucky

    https://bearingarms.com/cam-e/2019/1...eads-kentucky/

    The Second Amendment Sanctuary movement isn’t just sweeping the state of Virginia, though it’s certainly getting the most attention thanks to the sheer number of counties, cities, and towns that have adopted resolutions in advance of Governor Ralph Northam’s anti-gun agenda seeing action in the state legislature next month. Remember, this movement actually began in Illinois in 2018 before spreading west to Washington State, Oregon, Colorado, and New Mexico. In recent months we’ve seen more Second Amendment sanctuaries take root in Texas, Florida, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and even New Jersey. Now several counties in Kentucky are leading the charge in their state.

    It looks like Harlan County has become the first Second Amendment Sanctuary in the state after members of the county’s fiscal court adopted a resolution on Tuesday.


    From WYMT-TV:
    “Any time you see gun crimes occur, you’re not seeing law-abiding citizens involved in those crimes,” said Mosley. “We don’t feel like that law-abiding citizens should be infringed upon. They have this right as guaranteed by the Constitution of this country,” said Judge-Executive, Dan Mosley.

    Mosley said the idea was brought to his attention by several people in Harlan County a few weeks ago.

    “Folks who had saw what was going on in Virginia. And, many counties over there passed the resolution, declaring themselves as a sanctuary county for the Second Amendment,” said Mosley.
    With support from those in attendance, the resolution passed unanimously.

    Meanwhile, officials in Marshall County are working to add an actual ordinance to the county’s statutes that would prohibit the enforcement of any unconstitutional gun control laws, according to radio station WKMS.

    The Marshall County Fiscal Court met Tuesday to discuss what’s called a Second Amendment Sanctuary County ordinance, or SASO. The ordinance says that, if enacted, county officials cannot “knowingly and willingly, participate in any way in the enforcement of any Unlawful Act, as defined herein, regarding personal firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition.”

    The proposed ordinance defines an unlawful act as any federal or state regulation or law that “restricts an individual’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms”, or any regulation or law that bans, registers or limits the “lawful use of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition (other than a fully automatic firearm which is made unlawful by Federal law).”
    County officials say they plan on sending a copy of their draft ordinance to officials in other counties, in the hopes of sparking a Second Amendment Sanctuary tsunami like the one we’ve witnessed in Virginia since November’s elections swept anti-gun legislators into power.

    In Kentucky, pro-2A lawmakers still control the state legislature, but Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, who signed the state’s constitutional carry law in to effect earlier this year, was narrowly defeated in his re-election bid last month. Democrat Andy Beshear has come out in support of “red flag” legislation that would strip individuals of their right to keep and bear arms if a judge decides (in a hearing where the subject of the order isn’t present) that the subject may pose a danger to themselves or others. It’s that language that seems to be sparking interest in designating counties as save havens for the right to keep and bear arms.

    Will other counties in Kentucky hop on the 2A Sanctuary bandwagon? Given the amount of support we’ve seen for the movement in Virginia and eastern Tennessee, I would be shocked if the movement didn’t take off in the Bluegrass State. Expect more counties to follow the lead of Harlan and Marshall counties over the next few months.

    And just as stupid as "safe spaces". All that says is that others are welcome to violate you outside of those spaces.

    KY TO WV TO OH TO PA hopefully. Keep that train moving our direction.

    I see no comparison to "safe spaces".


    "Safe spaces" are a display of weakness. This is a showing of unity and fighting back. I'm glad gun owners everywhere are finally standing up, getting mad, and getting involved.

    Good. I hope it spreads around the country. I live in a county where every representative is a progressive democrat. They would throw any petitions in the garbage. The County Board on the other hand... I have no clue what their political bias is.... So I am told this county is pro-gun... again I hope the movement spreads. It's time to send a message that we aren't f**king around.
