Gun rights are under attack like never before.
Any time there’s political hay to be made, gun grabbers make a strong push to restrict Second Amendment rights.
But one municipality is standing up to the left’s tyrannical encroachment on gun rights.
In North Carolina, the Cherokee County Board Of Commissions passed a resolution designating the county a “gun sanctuary.”
According to a statement from County Commissioner C.B. McKinnon:
“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.”
The resolution reinforces the rights of gun ownership.
This is becoming an increasingly necessary step in the face of the left’s crusade for gun confiscation.
Many states are passing “red flag” laws and other gun control measures to make an end run around the Second Amendment.
Municipalities in Oregon, New Mexico, and other states have sheriffs who refuse to enforce unconstitutional gun laws.
The left absolutely will not stop until they get full gun confiscation.
They always use the talking point of “common sense gun laws,” but they either can’t articulate what those laws would be, or they list gun laws that are already on the books, but have proven to be ineffective.
As is often the case, Europe is the canary in the coal mine, and gun confiscation hasn’t been terribly effective.
The continent has still experienced gun violence; shockingly bad guys aren’t willing to give up their guns and follow the law.
And London, despite its ban on guns, recently surpassed New York City’s murder rate for the first time.
London’s response to the surge in murders is to ban knives.
That’s the mindset of the left.
They dogmatically stick to their policies regardless of facts and evidence.
While Cherokee County’s resolution is a step in a positive direction, leftists are doing considerable damage with sanctuaries of their own.
Leftist mayors and governors have declared sanctuary cities and states in defiance of federal immigration laws.
Libby Schaaf, the Mayor of Oakland, went so far as to warn illegal aliens in her city of an impending ICE raid.
The left is putting the interests of non-citizens above Americans.
Democrats shut down the government to ensure that unfettered illegal immigration from Mexico and Central America could continue apace.
Now immigration has become a national emergency.
Border Patrol said catch-and-release might be a necessity because they’ve literally been overwhelmed by the uptick in illegal border crossings.
Democrats have also talked about allowing illegal aliens to vote in American elections.
Some far-left cities already allow illegals to vote in school board elections.
While the rights of immigrants are expanding due to Democrat maneuvering, the rights of American citizens are contracting.
The left wants to limit your ability to protect yourself and your family with their overreaching gun laws.
Make sure you have all your bases covered in terms of prepping enough weaponry and ammunition in case the left is finally successful in demolishing gun rights.
