Novel approach on gun laws.............

Post by kbot » 05-08-2018 05:40 AM

I wondered when and where this would happen.............

Illinois counties declare 'sanctuary' status for gun owners

everal rural Illinois counties have taken a stand for gun rights by co-opting a word that conservatives associate with a liberal policy to skirt the law: sanctuary.

At least five counties recently passed resolutions declaring themselves sanctuary counties for gun owners — a reference to so-called sanctuary cities such as Chicago that don't cooperate with aspects of federal immigration enforcement.

The resolutions are meant to put the Democratic-controlled Legislature on notice that if it passes a host of gun bills, including new age restrictions for certain weapons, a bump stock ban and size limit for gun magazines, the counties might bar their employees from enforcing the new laws.

"It's a buzzword, a word that really gets attention. With all these sanctuary cities, we just decided to turn it around to protect our Second Amendment rights," said David Campbell, vice chairman of the Effingham County Board. He said at least 20 Illinois counties and local officials in Oregon and Washington have asked for copies of Effingham County's resolution.

I'm going to assume that since the Far Left media has been relatively silent on this, that they're just stunned and are having a meltdown...........

Good post kbot! From last May to now somehow I've missed hearing of this news on gun owner sanctuary counties. I like it! :D

I read the link to the CT newspaper. Let us know if there's more news of this cool idea. :idea:

Haven't seen anything MK, but to be honest with you, my life's taken a weird turn the past year. Wife's been really ill - three surgeries in the past 90 days with at least another looming.. She hasn't worked since last Sprint - which is OK because she SHOULD retire, but she's a stubborn nurse, so.......

Plus I have a new boss, and she's an idiot, but senior management loves her.

Plus my place just went union (but not me because I'm management........)

SO, I really haven't been watching things as much as I used to previously, or checking-in as much. Some days I just come home and pass out. Some days I just crack open a bottle of Jameson's........ :D

Aw! Those repeated surgeries remind one of trying to remedy chronic pain. That's tough all over like win and loss gambling. My wife's syatic sp? nerve pain, due to 2 damaged vertebrae, awaits consultation. Let's hope both are on the mend soon!

Ah yes, "chronic pain"........... hit the nail n the head MK. But, she also had her gallbladder out and gastric biopsies. 2018 wasn't a good year for her........
