Several North Carolina counties join the Second Amendment sanctuary movement
Local government leaders across the country continue apace, passing Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions that address the concerns of their constituents worried that gun rights might be infringed by newly elected Democrats.
To date, most have focused their attention on the steady stream of news coming out of Virginia, flamed in part by the overreaching rhetoric of emboldened liberal leaders in the northern part of the state.
However, the movement is beginning to pick up steam in other states with newly elected Democrat leaders, including Kentucky, and now, North Carolina as well.
The speed with which local governments are responding to their citizens' concerns, passing resolutions and proclamations that support Second Amendment rights, is truly impressive.
