Second Amendment sanctuaries continue to spread, new resolutions passed in Virginia and Kentucky
7 Jan 2020 — #Homefront
Virginia Beach voted Monday night to become a "Second Amendment Constitutional City" joining scores of other localities throughout the state of Virginia that have passed some form of Second Amendment protection.
Huge numbers of concerned citizens turned out to the city council meeting in an effort to make sure their voices were heard, resulting in a massive overflow crowd that was forced to watch the meeting outside.

Virginia Beach City Council members called the special session to discuss the possibility of passing a resolution to become a Second Amendment "constitutional" city. Several counties, cities, and towns in Virginia adopted resolutions or ones similar to them. City council allowed for public comment before the vote on January 6, 2020.

Meanwhile, in Kentucky, several counties have also passed resolutions in response to new Democrat political leadership, including recently sworn-in Governor Andy Beshear.
Local governments that have recently declared some form of Second Amendment protection include, among others, Cumberland, Harlan, Leslie, Letcher and now Trigg counties.

Firing back at an increase in new gun laws, Judge Magistrate Darrin Gregg knows his resolution doesn’t hold much weight right now. But he’s hoping other counties will follow suit.
