No public body in New York state has yet created a Second Amendment Sanctuary, but residents in two North Country counties this week urged their elected officials to do so.
About 70 people attended a meeting Monday of the St. Lawrence County Board of Legislators in Canton. And more than 300 residents showed up Tuesday for the meeting of the Lewis County Board of Legislators.
“Becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary means a locality won’t use law enforcement resources to prosecute the proposed anti-gun laws,” according to a story published Jan. 21 in the Wall Street Journal. “Whether such resolutions have any teeth depends on local officials’ resolve, but at the very least these measures are a reflection of regional sentiment on gun control.”
